    M8 is nice. I just hate having covers on my phones, but the M8 is too slippery to not have one.

    What do you mean by the 5" screen is smaller than the S4? Perhaps it just feels smaller because the phone is taller than the S4?

    That is pretty much impossible, 5" is 5". It may appear smaller due to the bezels and speakers but I assure you, they both have the same screen size

    True, but the on screen buttons eats up some of that usable space.

    Just got the HTC one M8 from Three UK, bought from the store, but it doesn't appear to have the extreme power saving mode, saw an article on here that this has happened in the US, was just wondering if there is anyone from the UK who has this as well?

    I spoke with HTC today and they seem to think it was a software update, and said that there should be one waiting for me, which there wasn't, so will probably try and do a complete reset tomorrow.

    On the plus side even without the extreme saving, I have had a whole days use, and still on 58% battery, with the Nexus 5 I would be having to plug the phone in now, so am pretty impressed with it so far
