    My first JUMP upgrade is coming up in June. Seriously debating going to the M8. Just wanting some feedback from others who had made the switch. Upsides? Downsides? Thanks.

    This phone is pretty much flawless once you but a case(I recommend the supcase unicorn beetle case). Should be great battery life, amazing screen, the camera is actually pretty good as long as you don't spend all day zooming into your photos. And the speakers are great. If you want a.new phone now. Get it.

    Thanks! Not too concerned about the camera. Never had an issue with my M7's camera.

    If u love the m7 u will truly love the M8. Had M7 for 7 months and thought I would miss the square design but the M8 looks a lot beter. even when M7 gets new software.

    One of the first reviews of the M8 I read said something along the lines of: the most remarkable thing about the M8 is that it makes the M7 seem low-tech (I paraphrase, can't remember the exact quote). I completely agree. I had an M7 since launch day, and I loved it. I got an M8 on launch day (wife's upgrade, she now has my old M7), and I love it. It's not a revolutionary upgrade, but definitely worth it. When I first got it I kind of thought that it wasn't that different, but after 6 weeks with it it's hard to go back to the M7. There are myriad ways in which it's just a little nicer: the look, feel, responsiveness, battery life. Motion launch is awesome, the quick charge feature is nice too (although the charge rate of the M7 never bothered me). The notification LED is brighter and more noticable. The *only* thing I prefer on the M7 is that you can snap a pic or start a video from the same camera screen, on the M8 you have to change the mode. As the above poster said, if you love the M7, you'll love the M8.

    I just jumped from the m7 to the m8 2 days ago and I couldn't be happier. I had the m7 for 9 months and loved it as well. My only regret is not JUMPing to it sooner.

    Good to hear. I was 95% sure I was going to switch. Just to see how the JUMP program worked. Listening to Mr. Oldman and asking the internet lol.

    Did you have to have half of the phone paid off? Been curious about that since I signed up before they made that change to the rules....

    I thought the build quality was the most noticeable difference. The M7 was the prototype and the M8 was the finished product.

    +1, I would agree with this as well. At least that's what it seems like to me

    No I'm still grandfathered in to the old every 6 months. They may or may not ask you to change but you can still stay on the old jump.

    Good to know! That was the one thing I was worried about. I signed up for JUMP before they made the change and didn't know if I would be grandfathered in or not.

    Sell our trade your note 3, if that's an option. I've seen several craigslist posts in my local area of people wanting to trade note 3's for phones like the m8

    I have definitely thought about it just because I really like trying new phones... I do love my Note 3 screen but also the battery swap ability. Sigh.. so torn. Haha .
