HTC One (M8): Hate and Love
Post the one thing you hate and the one thing you love about your M8, Bad news first. Your welcome to comment as well. I will because I'm rather verbose in my writing. If you can't post something you hate or love that hasn't already been in the thread, by all means duplicate people above you.
Hate the logo bezel.
Love the camera.
The Logo bezel since it adds so much height to the phone. I'm sure that space is put to good use behind it, and maybe it's fine as a tool to make the M8 appear more like a normal old-timey telephone where the mouthpiece was actually near your mouth, but... I just can't help think about the portability, weight savings, and the cool factor without it being there. I'd be curious what the battery estimates were pegged out to be with and without that space. HTC, what's the story? Surely someone there did the math? Can we next time look at a design without a front logo, or with the logo in a speaker area?
People, those that are uninformed and not properly analytical think there's not enough pixels. I think they're seeking approval for their worldview where bigger is always better. There are seriously placed where there are outstanding reasons for things to be small. Pixels are not one of them. Each generation of pixels should be bigger than the last, but because of historical lack of precision manufacturing there has been this trend where more is better instead of big is better. Thank you HTC for choosing correctly. Also, it should be faster than the prior camera, adding number of pixels doesn't help with that, it means more data to move off the sensor, and more space to save that data. HTC has still chosen correctly in this regard too, by using a 4mp sensor they can have it save images at a ridiculously fast rate, making possible the rapid fire camera and the fun Zoe's which show up on Google+ very nicely. Coming from the Nexus 5, the camera is such a massive improvement in performance that since I got the Nexus, I don't think I've actually gotten a shot I wanted because the lighting performance of the camera was terrible, or because the startup, focus, and capture time took *SO* long. I mean compared to the M7 it's much longer than 0.68 seconds, which for an android is nearly an eternity. Also I picked the camera, in the hopes that others will list features that I also love.
