    I originally bought the s5 but after a week with it moved to the m8. M8 much better from an experience standpoint. S5 was laggy.

    I'm actually going to disagree. I think the camera really holds the M8 back. I'm currently using the S5 and the camera (and water resistance) are the two things that really brought me to the S5. Cell phone camera is a huge feature to me and HTC One missed the mark on it again.

    I am actually going to disagree with you. I think smoothness of the OS is paramount. The M8 is just so smooth, no lag at all. The camera while not the best is adequate for most situations. Yes the S5 has a better camera spec wise, but under most situations the benefits are negligible. And why is water proofing such a big deal. Do most people go swimming or take a bath with their device? TouchWiz makes the S5 laggy. The M8 provides a more pleasing overall experience.

    Are you talking from experience or just what people on the S5 forum say about the M8?
    Have a look through all of this thread and see what is capable with the M8 camera from people with a range of photography skills.

    I disagree the camera hold the M8 back, in fact I'd argue it's one of it's strong points.

    I have 3 kids so the ability to take great shots when I need to is paramount. I love the fact that with the S5 I can really bring my phone into a waterpark or pool in the summer time and get great shots without having to dodge water every other second. I also think the lag is completely overblown and it's the cool thing to pick on. In the almost week since I've had the S5 I can't think of a single time I've seen a stutter to get hung up while moving from app to app or page to page. It's not perfect, but it works quite well.

    Every single review I have watched and read has pointed to the camera as the weak spot of the M8 (and I've read and watched a lot). Sure it can take good shots at times but when every single reviewer points out the camera, it's definitely something I notice and take seriously. I had the M7 last year and the camera was a complete buzz kill for me.

    Most of the reviews moan about the lack of megapixels which shows how little they know.
    Seems to be fashionable more than informed to bash the M8 camera.

    Why do we continue to debate this stuff. People are prideful of the device they chose or want. It makes them feel better about themselves and superior to others who made the "wrong" choice. Be happy with what we have. It's a personal choice.

    Exactly.. either you like one company and slam the other or you are neutral and base the decision from your personal pros and cons. Simple as that.

    I enjoy the debate. I'm on the fence about my S5. I'm not 100% happy with it and am looking for reasons and personal experience to jump to it.

    Any reviewer who even mentions the megapixel count as the primary reason for the subpar performance immediately discredited in my book.

    M8 hands down. I had the M8 first and while I thought it was a great phone I thought I was missing out on something so I get the S5. Needless to say the S5 was returned a couple days later. The only saving grace on that phone is the camera and despite the processor being clocked higher, it definitely underperformed compared to the M8. Samsung needs to scrap TW plain and simple, it's dated, ugly, and bloated, and it drags the S5 down.

    Have you ever experienced the M8 personally? If you haven't then you should. I think that will help you make your decision.

    I actually went and played with it (the M8 over my lunch hour today. Walked out with the S5 still in hand. I have 8 days to change my mind. The camera wasn't that impressive from what I can tell in store. Definitely a sexy looking phone for sure.

    Also the call quality and clarity is better on the M8, the S5 sounded muffled.

    Every time I pick up my phone I want it to work smoothly, no hiccups, no lagging. Every time. The M8 does this. The S5 doesn't. I don't care if the camera is better. I don't take that many pictures. But I do use my phone for a lot more than pictures. So I would hate to have a phone with marginal smoothness. It would bother me every time I used the phone. Not just when taking pictures. I don't know if I am making my point clearly.
