    Default Day Two with the All New HTC One (M8)

    So far, I love this thing. It is a great improvement over the M7. To compare the best way, the M8, fixes a lot of the issues from the M7.

    Camera issues, gone. Also, you can use the camera easily. In landscape mode, I was able to assign the volume up and down keys as the zoom function, and tap to capture. It feels like I'm actually using a camera. Front facing camera is AMAZING. Of course if you didn't know, it's 5MP, and very clear. I will tell you the quality of the photos are better.

    Battery, lasts awhile and charges fast.
    The swipe features from the sleep mode adds a HUGE convenience.

    You WILL get your lock screen wallpaper ability back, and can remove that lock screen widget option.

    You get an extra home screen, with ability still to turn off Blinkered, of course.

    The sound is NOTICEABLY better.
    The phone is bigger, but honestly, doesn't feel bigger in the hand, as you might think (which is good).

    You can change font style, which looks great.

    The auto answer feature, when in sleep mode, is actually extremely quick. As soon as the phone was an inch to my ear, I said hello a bit early, but my friend still heard it clearly, and actually surprised her a bit.

    I love when the phone times out, and I just swiped up, and as quickly as it turned off, I was back on the phone where I left off, without a glitch in any app so far.

    The AnTuTu benchmark test, ranks this phone as top dog. Camera modes are fantastic, and feels great.

    You can now clear all running apps with one click.

    The phone mixes colors on the phone display very nicely, and it's a smooth phone.

    Much much more to talk about, and the phones feels excellent. Very smooth, shiny, not too heavy. Great interface, and great improvement.

    Also on day two.

    Have they removed the ability to have the task button act as the menu option or have they buried that option?

    Agree with your camera statements.

    Have noticed a tinny sound when speaking on bluetooth via my car's system. My One Max and former Droid Maxx sounded much better via bluetooth.

    Battery life is surprisingly good.

    So far a nice upgrade.

    He's probably talking about the purple tint issues the M7 had.

    Does the M8 feel slippery? Are you afraid of it slipping out of your hand when you use it?

    I doubt it. Those issues developed over time and werent apparent at launch.

    It is definitely more slippery than the m7. I would say that's because of the curve of the back of the phone rather than the finish, but I definitely think it's more so than the original One. I have already dropped mine once, but it didn't do any damage

    I am pleasantly surprised with how well this device is put together. The build and the software. I had all of last year's flagships but decided this year I wasn't going to do that. So it was between this and the S5. After the announcement it was confirmed for me that this would be the one I'd buy. I was a little worried about the size but not a problem for me. Battery life has been great so far and camera better than the M7 right now. My last android was the nexus 5 so this camera is a slight upgrade lol. But everything is working well. Sense 6 is smooth. No stuttering or hiccups as of yet. Well put together device. I don't know if it's the best but it's pretty darn close.

    I will admit, the camera is better than I thought. I can't stay off my phone. I remembered the M7, at launch, but not this good. The 3D effect, cut and paste, stickers. I'm here at work, for a tech company, and I get a lot of huddled around me all morning so far. I love it. And the Panorama is EASY to use, and very nice.

    The phone can be slippery I guess, and I have not dropped it once. It is curvy, solid, shiney. Speaking of shiny, I love that chrome inlay on the camera back. It sparkles.

    I'll have to get on my iPad to post pictures, but I'd love to show everyone soon.

    I have two m8's that vary in quality.... One has a yellow warmer tinted screen one has a more blue cooler screen. Also, one has a stiff volume rocker and the other a loose one that jiggles.... Other than that the phone is great and my gf doesn't seem to care that her's has a warmer tinted screen....

    If you're not interested in responding in a helpful way, then it's best to refrain from posting. I suggest taking the time to review the forum rules, a portion of which is quoted below:

    To each their own, I am very particular with my electronics and if I am spending money on a new phone I am expecting it to arrive in my hands without any physical or performance issues.

    In my personal opinion, a tinted or off color screen is unacceptable. The screen is one of the most important aspects of our phones, if not the most important. Credit to her for being alright with the apparent screen issue, it would drive me nuts lol.

    I hate when this sort of crap happens. I feel like it always happens with HTC but sure it happens to other manufacturers as well. I remember in the past people would point our that they used a couple different suppliers for screens . But I remember last year with the M7 I noticed differences in two phones next to each other.

    Nice day 2 impressions.

    Just want to know - does the phone slow down at all? Have you noticed any hiccups when navigating the UI, firing up the camera, playing videos, scrolling through blinkfeed?

    I know it sounds like a trivial issue, but I'm really pedantic about extremely smooth UI operation. I hate when a phone hangs or stutters.

    Tell me about it! I took both phones into a dark room cranked up the brightness and its so obviously dingy and yellow. The rattling volume rocker is starting to annoy her, more than likely we will be exchanging hers.
