  1. They need to bring the one m8 design back. Exaxct same design but 2mm thinner, closer to a unibody and in gunmetal with no brushing. Would buy even with a snap 636, I don't care. as long as it has a 5 inch screen, smaller bezels, capacitive buttons and the weight of metal, i'll sell my soul

  2. m8 is the best phone in every departments thats ever been built and nothing can beat its legacy even after 3 and half years of super heavy use it still outperforms my brand new lg g6 and the m8 boomsound makes htc 10 boomsound sound thin and samsungy

  3. I had the opportunity to look at both hands-on recently in determining a switch from Motorola to HTC… I settled upon the 10, and said goodbye to Moto, especially with the new Moto Z…

  4. the processor is better and you continue getting software update for android . They stopped sending OTAs to the m8 🙁. My M9 will be comin in from Hong Kong soon. $239.00 verizon model gunmetal grey.

  5. I find it amazing that even today I am yet to see a phone master the speakers like the M8. I've owned the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6p. I didn't realize how good the speakers were on the M8 until I purchased my mom one and tested against my N6p. Why can't HTC put the same speakers and audio chip in their new phones

  6. TBH, I never had a good experience with this phone. got it used in good condition, and after couple months it started having software issues with battery charge, lost it after an hour completely, the charging port broke and you had to move the cable around to make it charge (had that issue with multiple cables, until got one that worked, and the cable burned the port), and the last issue is the sim card slot, every time a phone was dropped, or shook, it stops seeing the sim card, and you had to press on the slot to fix it, or sometimes take the card out and back in, but if not for these issues, I would walk around with it, IDK if it's worth fixing it, it'll be couple hundred dollars. I'm gonna get a one plus 3.

    p.s. comment what you think of the phone, and did you have these issues

  7. I love my m9 I've had it since it came out with no problems, the camera has gotten much better over time with updates to the app itself and software improvements, will most likely wait for the next HTC after the HTC 10

  8. I'm gonna say this, I just tested the speakers with the same song and m8 is by far better. Again, by far better. M9s front camera is a masterpiece like m8s speakers. So if you want camera then go for the m9. But I won't leave speakers for camera.
