    Default Sell me on the m8 :)

    I'm stuck between the m8 and s5, I'm coming from a gs3. I just want all positive input on the HTC phone here. I made a similar thread on the s5 page thanks!

    I'm gonna focus on this for a minute. To me, slow is a key word here. If you're anything like me and you like your phones as fluid as possible, the m8 is gonna satisfy that need as much as possible. It is the closest thing in terms of speed to the nexus 5, which in my experience never misses a beat.

    The m8 camera is stellar. How many people on fb are gonna tell you your white balance is slightly off and say you should have gone with the s5?

    The screen on the m8?? Best one I've seen on a phone. Haven't seen the s5 screen in person but I have a hard time believing anyone its any better. Maybe just as good.

    To each their own sir. No one here should have a say in your decision. But since you're basically crying for help and I'm a phone geek, this is my opinion. So pick a phone, any phone. As long as its the m8.

    I just posted this on another thread in response to someone deciding between the two. These should apply to you too. I just don't feel like typing as much again. Lol

    The M7 was widely regarded as the best phone of last year.

    The M8 is better.

    I'm a sales rep for a cell phone company.

    Pros for M8 (which I own)
    Amazing build quality, responsive OS, great sound, isn't as filled with bloatware and random features I'll never use, 32 GB onboard

    Pros for S5
    Removable battery, great screen, better camera

    M8 is smooth, smooth, smooth. No slowness, no hiccups, no waiting. Every time I use my M8 it responds without any effort.

    -SENSE 6 is butter.
    -No lag, no stutter, smooth as silk ALL the time.
    -Sound quality is stellar.
    -Screen is flawless.

    There are a bunch of phones which are very damn good. Note 3 comes to mind. In my opinion the Samsung phones seem corny after you've used the M8 and SENSE 6 and I have only owned Samsung smartphones since 2010. The S, S2 and most recently coming from an S3 which by the way the camera app would freeze up on me 50% of the time.

    Do what you think is right though. Don't let anyone tell you what you should like. Perhaps you try the S5 and think it is the cats pajamas and if so more power to you! I'm not on commission here and there are probably just as many people who think the exact opposite of what I do concerning these two phones. Honestly, either phone you choose is going to be the best smartphone you've ever owned up to this point most likely. Just play around with them, pull the trigger and don't look back until next year at this time when the M9 and S6 will be battling it out!

    I am also trying to decided if m8 is for me. Here is my list:

    Faster UI
    Double tap to wake
    Premium metal body
    Selective focus after picture is taken
    Better front camera
    Faster rear camera focus
    Front facing speakers
    Higher pixel density screen 441 ppi vs 432 ppi
    Less bloat-ware

    I also own a galaxy s3... and because the UI is so much slower on the s5 than m8, I already know s5 is not for me.
    Because I am looking for a significant upgrade ...especially in UI responsiveness... tired of the laggy experience on my s3
    Only thing that is appealing to me about s5 is the camera tho.

    OP keep this in mind.... the longer you own the S5 and the more apps you instal on your S5 THE SLOOOWER AND SLOOOOOOWER it will get. same with the phone freezing. it will happen more and more over time.

    the HTC runs buttery smooth.

    Better visibility outdoors (Cobravision on the other thread is a liar, reviews will tell you I'm right).
    The phone feels great in the hands.
    Sense 6 is one of the best, least intrusive, android skins out there. HTC follows Google design language amazingly well, better than most. Also it runs soooo smooth, you will likely never notice lag. Hell, in the developer options if you take away the animation time (or lower it) then things will come up instantly.
    Blinkfeed is great for commutes and just when you're bored.
    The battery life is supposed to bring you 6-8 hours of on screen time now, compared to the 3 I was getting with the m7. That's really great, I don't carry around batteries (never wanted to, never will) so a swappable battery is sort of useless to me and it might be to you.
    Boomsound.
    Front facing camera is one of the best out there, if you're into #selfies.

    Just returned my s5 for an m8 yesterday. I love it. Love sense. My step dad has the original m8 I had and its Google play edition. I actually prefer the sense edition. The pics I have been taking are perfect. I love how smooth and how fast the phone is. It feels great in the hand. My only complaint is the black bar at the bottom but I can move past it. Haha. Have had most flagships including the iPhone and I think this is my favorite phone. Ever.

    How is the battery life compared to the S5?

    It is a gr8 phone!!

    Coming from a S4, then a G2, this thing is much smoother. No lag switching between apps.
    The camera is good enough for me.
    The front speakers are a must have!!
    Build quality is top notch.
