    Default HTC One (M8): HTC logo and on screen button take almost 20% of full screen webpage.

    I just saw and played with m8 at local at&t store..nice phone but when I opened the webpage and compare with my oppo find 5 which is same 5" and I mentioned that the logo and on screen buttons take almost 20% of the screen..so even 5" screen but u lost space for gaming and reading.. But m8 very beautiful. hard decision.

    The HTC logo is NOT part of the screen..... and if you're reading and gaming the onscreen button disappear.

    The on screen buttons take up nowhere near 20% of the screen. Also during gaming and a lot of other apps they disappear. I'm basing this off the fact that I have the phone in my hands right now, not just playing with it for a short amount of time in a store

    Your oppo also has a snapdragon s4 processor, a far inferior chipset to the 801 found in the m8. Pretty much everything about the m8 is far superior to the oppo 5

    The screen is the only thing that has that separates it from the crowd. The rest of the features can be found in a lot of other devices. Not saying it's a a bad phone, it looks great but it's hardly innovative. If it meets your needs then that's great, go ahead and get it. I personally think the m8 has more innovation

    The button stay on during papa pear , real boxing, etc etc etc very annoying. I know they will patch but this sucks so far. I've had it about a week now.

    That's totally on the devs who created the games. I agree, it does suck and these developers need to get with the program!

    Sorry to say that again but I still think HTC should put the hardware button instead of on screen button..if HTC do that I think m8 would be a best android phone for all time..

    I don't have a problem with the onscreen buttons. In fact add times it's an advantage with the apps that have their menu button down there.

    After owning Nexus devices, I prefer on-screen buttons.

    Easier to press, they're there when you need them, disappear when you don't, can change context, aren't fixed to a certain function and can maneuver around the screen if needed.

    On screen buttons are more in line with what Google wants with android. They implement into the os a lot better than capacitive buttons. It wouldn't surprise me in the near future if this becomes a requirement with android.

    That said I personally don't have any preference. The m7's capacitive buttons worked just fine as well as the on screen buttons of the m8

    You mentioned that you "played" with the M8 inside an AT&T store. I'm also sorry, how does that justify a comment like, "I think m8 would be a best android phone for all time." ???

    I prefer soft buttons since they should be able to be hidden when the context doesn't call for them. But some software needs to be updated to use the screen space. For example, the Kindle app just leaves a black bar there rather than use it for an extra line or two of text. Seems kinda silly.

    Don't' get me wrong..I like to support HTC too. I owned HTC 8x HTC one m7..and I like the m8 too..just my preference that I think on screen button make the 5" screen look small if u look side by side with my m7..but I agree the hardware on m8 is the best u can get now.
