    Apple has the same mentality, they seen to be doing fine with the iPhone even with only slight upgrades every year.

    Samsung is thriving while HTC is unfortunately struggling to profit.

    while maybe true please keep in mind if your an Apple fanboy thats all you'll buy. if your a droid fanboy you have choices.

    I don't think Samsung's concern is winning best android device of the year. Samsungs main concern is sales and in that respect they are still winning over HTC and all the other android manufacturers.

    As long as Samsung continues to sell 50+ million Galaxy S devices, they will be more than happy.

    But should we be happy? We should be concerned with which phone is the best. I think you accidentally nailed the problem in your post. Samsung is not concerned with whether or not their phone is the best. And the inferior product is driving superior products out of business. That is very definitely a problem for consumers.

    I stand corrected just goggled it and the GS2 won back in 2011.

    Regardless, Samsung's current ideology of what a flagship device is has failed to wow the tech community instead it's a being considered slight upgrade from the GS4 and getting at most mediocre reviews unlike the M8. I'll bet my money that the GS5 will sell tons of devices but will not be in the running for best device again for the obvious reasons.
    Samsung market isn't for the tech enthusiasts but more for the general population similar to how apple works IMO

    and when your main concern is just sales,
    that's when you start losing ground imho....
    And where will HTC be in 5-6 years if they keep on this pace?

    How is the s5 inferior to the m8? Spec wise they are basically the same.... If you like metal design or the plastic and prefer sense or TouchWiz is all personal opinion

    If it's all personal opinion, then that's his opinion. He thinks Samsung makes inferior products compared to other manufactures. Who are you to question his?

    Same thing goes for Samsung fanboys, in most cases it's worse. I see the majority of HTC fanboys defending HTC products, whereas Samsung guys are the ones starting it. Just my observations of course

    Can you give me more detail about using the M8 hands free. I am considering getting one but have never tried the car mode app

    thanks

    I Agree I honestly wanted the s5 to be the next big thing, however for me it was far from it. My battery was terrible and the phone got hot on the back, the fingerprint reader is a real let down after you have used the 5s it makes the s5 a joke so I would rather not even use it. The m8 fits my hand better I can text and drive at the same time. *flame on* I try not to but sometimes it happens. And for me camera vs 5s,s5 and m8 I have not had any pictures that was not acceptable for me with the m8 and I like the zoe and the camera options, not saying s5 may be better but for me I do not actually see that big of a difference to say ok I can't live with it.

    I just wish m8 had more options for accessories.

    Personally I prefer Samsung phones myself... And even though i dislike the metal body of the M8, don't care about the Speakers, and think the camera sucks ( in my opinion) compared to the samsung phones of late i would consider buying the M8 over Samsung phones if it had a removable battery ( I upgrade err annually so taking a year off a Samsung phone isn't bad and would like to use a HTC phone)
