    Default So far the HTC One M8 wins best phone ever for me

    Beautiful build,excellent battery,superb music quality both from the speaker and from the audio Jack, smoothness,no lag,and decent camera make this phone the best I've ever had. The battery for me is actually better than the g2 which says a lot. HTC has done an amazing job here and if you all have seen past post I don't usually praise most manufacturers.

    I feel the same way. It's gotten to the point where I'm looking forward to the next version. HTC really raised the bar with the M8 it's a fantastic phone. I have never been happier.

    This is hands down the best phone I have had. I think HTC has caused Samsung some problems with what they did with phone compared to the M7 and Samsung didn't do as much from the S4 to the S5.

    No regrets for getting my M8 either!
    Moved away from Apple. Best thing I have done!
    Great build. Very fast. Always got signal. Battery is amazing.

    I am in the same boat.
    I often switch devices and always feel a need to try different ones or get the latest greatest devices. But with the M8 i dont want to. It fits all my needs and i dont have an urge or desire to go to anything else.
    I am looking forward to the awaited 4.4.3(4) updates but other then that no complaints.

    It will be interesting to see how it 'ages'. How long it can hold on to its effectively PR crafted premium image. It's not really in the same league with the likes of SGS5, LG G3, SGN3, etc., after all.

    How is it not in the same league? If you mean it's in a league of its own, I'd agree. None of those phones touch this one.

    Since you ask: compared to SGS5, LG G3, SGN3, etc., the M8 has got a decidedly lo-res cam, is longer, thicker, heavier, is more slippery, has got a smaller available screen area, is not water resistant, has no fingerprint scanner, no heart rate monitor, no USB 3.0, etc. etc. Need I go on?
    Of course the M8 looks much more Star Trek for those who are sensitive to that sort of thing. And it has better sound.

    Outside the USB 3.0 and the crappy camera, the rest is subjective and depends on the person.

    For instance, while I agree that the M8 is the 3-4th best phone out, I prefer a heavier phone with good speakers.

    My wife likes the waterproofing on the S5, I could not care any less about it.

    Like NoNexus said, it's subjective. Personally I can't stand OLED screens because of the over saturation and black splotches. Touchwiz is awful and gimmicky and LG phones are poorly optimised.

    The M8 may be lacking compared to the competition in some areas but nothing to justify saying it's not in the same league. You're indulging in hyperbole.

    Lo-res cam, longer, thicker, heavier, more slippery, smaller available screen area, not water resistant, no fingerprint scanner, no heart rate monitor, and no USB 3.0 are anything BUT subjective, friend. They are al measurable = OBjective shortcomings compared to the flagship phones.

    How is having no heart rate monitor or finger print scanner a short coming? I bet 90% of the people who have the S5 don't even use them. Just throwing a bunch of specs into a phone does not a good experience make.

    It's longer than most sure but that's because it has front facing speakers which i think most people would agree is an acceptable tradeoff. Not water resistant? I believe it is actually water resistant but not "certified" resistant. I have dropped mine in the water unfortunately and it was fine.

    I guess i'll give you the "low-res cam" but it also takes better pictures than all other phones in low-light which is a feature you don't list. USB 3.0 would be nice I guess but is that really a feature? How often are you transferring large data files to your phone? If it speeds up charging I guess that's nice.

    I think the S5's lukewarm reception has proved you can't just throw features into a phone and expect people to run out and buy it. HTC takes a less is more approach to their phones and it shows in how well the One handles everyday tasks.

    I don't think a heart rate monitor on a phone is ever going to be accurate. The camera is adequate for most but agreed not as good as some phones. Fingerprint scanner, I don't Samsungs is used much and from what I read as good as Apple. Water resistant, only to me of it rains does it matter.


    I think the M8 is a great phone and to me too many features can cause lag and other issues. Samsung would have been better off adding the feature but fixing touch wiz and the outer case.

    They're subjective in the sense that they're of relative importance depending on who you are.

    Speaking for myself and not for him, none of the things you mentioned matter to me or in some cases, I actually prefer my phones that way.

    If you claim the M8 wins best phone ever. I'm assuming you've all tried the competition?

    Just curious.

    OP title says "...for me." therefore precludes the necessity of being objective.

    TY from saving me from typing it out. Pretty much what I would have said. Again INdoler, the only thing on your second list that is not subjective is the USB 3. M8 and G3 screwed the pooch there

    I can careless about a heart monitor sensor whatever its called, it'll be cool here there but I'd never really use that often. Fingerprint scanner is the same thing, I thought the face unlock feature was cool for a day then never used it again. They're all good phones tho regardless, like OP said the M8 is the best for him while u all might agree the G3 or the S5 is the best for u. I like the M8 the best because it does what I need it to.

    I like the m8 and am looking forward to the M9

    I think it's time htc completely out does the competition in all aspects on the next one and they don't need to go the phablet route to do it.

    The latest processors gpu the absolute best camera and software the biggest battery 4 gigs of ddr3 ram in a 5" or 5.5" screen and 500ppi would crush the competition.

    It would also crush their cash flow. It's one thing to get an edge over the competition but crushing it would cost an extreme amount of time and money on R&D and component purchases. Even Samsung, who make their own components anyway still are only able to make incremental improvements.

    Did you actually say that a heart rate monitor and fingerprint scanner are "advantages" over the M8?
    I can't imagine even caring if those kinds of "gimmicks" were on any phone I was considering..
    and, USB 3.0 means nothing, since most folks use wireless methods to transfer files now a days...I guess if that stuff means something to you, you are in the minority, NOT the majority..

    You've got a lively imagination.

    Irrelevant.
    The point is that kind of stuff is on top-of-the-line phones. It's not on the M8. So the M8 is not a top-of-the-line phone.

    based on YOUR criteria of what is a top of the line phone, NOT any one else's..NO phone enthusiast considers that kind of crap as "top of the line phone" stuff..
