    So you might be thinking that I just want to know what phone to get, but I already know. I just want to know if there are any new phones that are better.

    So I am going to get the HTC one M8 soon, but was wondering if there are any better/newer phones I should get. I have the money to get a flagship phone BTW.

    If you can afford the Z2 although presuming your in the states(you will have to import from Thailand). Then I can't rate this phone high enough.

    Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Canada, UK. The countries where the Z2 is released.

    Wait Thailand? I hope you're not confusing Taiwan with Thailand. They are really distinct countries.

    Would rather have the One+1 myself. Has everything the M8 has and more (even stereo speakers). It will have better support to, and is half the price.

    I still think the Nexus 5 is better than the M8 as well. Nexus 5's camera is definitely better.

    If the phone is needed now id recommend the Z2 also. You can order from Sony directly if you love in the USA.

    Otherwise I'd wait to see what the G3 has to offer. Then decide on the M8 if it suits you.

    Or buy 2 one plus ones in June lol

    so far it seems that the best choices are

    • Xperia Z2
    • One M8
    • to wait for the G3
    • Nexus 5


    in that specific order, that's my opinion of course :P

    Every one of them has the power and features you'll need. Pick the one that looks and feels the way you want, at the price you want to pay.

    They don't all have the power and features I need. I need a good camera...Moto X and M8 can't give me that. I need vanilla Android...The M8 and S5 can't give me that.

    They are not all equally capable. You will be compromising no matter which one you pick.

    Everyone phone has compromises unfortunately. There is no end all be all. All you can ask for is the best jack of all trades, master of none and for that you'll be looking at the M8, Moto X, S5, and Nexus 5.

    And HTC is capable of making good cameras...the HTC Rezound had the best camera of it's generation (Galaxy Nexus/Droid Razr era). Even by today's standards the Rezound has a nice mid-range camera. It's Macro especially is still awesome. The M8's is just a huge letdown to me...photos look washed out and they are low res. It's not a flagship camera IMO.

    HTC needs to abandon that clear pixel tech. It's not working. They need to go back to conventional cameras and maybe add OIS.

    I still think the Nexus 5 is better than the M8 as well. Nexus 5's camera is definitely better.
    The stereo speakers on the One+ One don't sound as good. I don't know about you, but I haven't been to the future to know how good the support will be. You seem to be basing this on the assumption that because it's CM and some another start up company that support is going to be good. We just don't know yet. What we do know is that HTC (and Samsung and Moto to be fair) have been getting updates out quickly for a little while now. HTC is also being fairly transparent about the whole process as well.

    Why not wait for the S6 then? Or Note 5? Or Nexus 6 (or whatever any of these will be called)?

    Yep. That was my point. it is not just look and feel...there are lots of other variables still. The best phone depends on what you care about the most.

    At this point I think the only area the M8 excels at right now is the case design. It still seems to have the best speakers too. It is not an awful phone, but it is definitely not worth the $600 or $700 retail price IMO.

    He was talking to the OP of the thread since the OP created this and asked a question...

    Also they are equally comparable depending on opinion... For most people any of those phones will be good.. Just depends on the person's needs. Just because your needs may be different doesn't mean you can tell him they aren't comparable.. It's opinions. No one can be wrong for their own opinion.

    It will be open. CM is not going to lock it down with a lot of crap like HTC and Samsung do. It is guaranteed to have broad community support because nerds love this phone. It will get love regardless of what CM does with it. It is a Nexus in all but name.

    What we do know is that HTC (and Samsung and Moto to be fair) have been getting updates out quickly for a little while now. HTC is also being fairly transparent about the whole process as well.
    HTC made this same claim when the Rezound came out and completely screwed us over. We got One (1) major update, and that one was 6 months later than promised. I don't have a lot of faith in HTC when it comes to support.

    Thats not to say they have not improved. Sense is less obnoxious than it used to be, Case design is great, they added a novel feature no one else had (Stereo), and they brought back SD. I give them credit for those things. It's not that the M8 is awful, it's just that their competition is THAT good now.

    Why not wait for the S6 then? Or Note 5? Or Nexus 6 (or whatever any of these will be called)?
    Nexus 6 and new Note will not be here till October at least and maybe later. S6 will not be here before 2015.

    I don't see how they are comparable if they depend on opinion.

    I agree. That is evidence they are not comparable. In order for them to be comparable, everyone's needs would have to be the same. You will be compromising on something no matter which one you pick. There is no Android phone that is clearly better in every area right now.

    So the best phone will depend on what you care about most. They are not all equal.

    Easy.. To some the S5,M8,etc. are on the same level so it doesn't matter which. I think they definitely are all on the same level and all are great phones.
