    Now that the M8 is 90% metal, did you experience any dropped calls, wifi signal and death grip issues?

    Noticed that camera UI is better now on the M8. Im particularly interested in the manual settings, can we now control the shutter speed or do we still need third party apps to do this?

    Great job btw on your coverage and follow-up work of the launch event.

    So the gun metal feels different than the silver/gold option ?
    Yep. More glossy. The others are just like the M7.

    Not shutter speed (at least that I saw). But a bunch of other stuff.

    And thanks!

    The case sure is unique indeed. But I bet all those little holes will soon fill with gunk over time and be a PITA to keep it all clean and working properly. Too bad they didn't mimic the Quickview case like the G2.
    I'm already fighting to get Sky Club Cracker Jack out of a hole.

    Thank you. I really hope they did add an LED light with more colors than the M7.

    Is the phone harder to hold with one hand than the M7, considering it's bigger and has a different metal finish? From the reviews I've read, it seems like the metal-finish is smoother/slipperier but the rounded edges are more comfortable to hold

    Edit: Have you noticed any difference in videos now that the M8 doesn't come with OIS?
    I think it's fair to say it's a little harder to hold.

    And I'll upload video of landing at LGA tonight.

    Kinda the wrong thread for that question. But look in the widget drawer and see if it's an option on the M7.

    Going along with the questions about the SD card (and I'm obviously very familiar with the changes in Kit Kat), can you make the default storage option in the camera/gallery the SD card so that the pictures and videos are automatically saved there instead of the internal storage? I know it's up to the app to take advantage of the new API's, and I'm hoping that HTC did.

    Any iPhone owners switch to the M8? Care to chime in on if you are satisfied?

    Oh, any announcement concerning first party wireless charging cases from HTC? (the Dots case should have included this in my opinion)

    Phil,
    Some of us don't do the "get a new phone every year" thing because of stupid two year contracts. I'm sure the HTC One 2014 crushes the Galaxy S3 in all spec areas but what about the camera?

    If I am used to the quality of the 8mp shooter on the S3 how will the images coming from the new HTC One compare?

    Phil,

    Your review seemed to indicate that the camera was the biggest negative about the phone. I've read that the new M8 camera doesn't have optical image stabilisation (OIS). Overall is the image quality better, worse, or on par with what the M7 produced?

    Seems like you were not happy with the camera overall, which is a shame to see as I'm so close to pulling the trigger and ordering one.

    Is the Verizon version unlocked to be used on AT&T and T-Mobile? And does it support LTE or at least HSPA+ on either of them?

    Beats is no more. And I have no idea if the US gets the earbuds.

    The US gets the ear buds. HTC branded. They are quite nice actually.

    I've also said I think I might have been a little harsh on the camera. But of I had to pick something to single out, that'd be it.

    And there's an anti-shake mode on the camera.

    I actually kinda envy those people.

    This phone is a generation ahead, easy.
