    If anything the M8 fell real short compared to the Galaxy S5, LG G2, and Xperia Z2

    I'm waiting until Tuesday to see what HTC will show. I'm aware of the leaks but like another poster mentioned I want to see the real final product.

    Both phones look really nice so I'll probably have to go to a store to try them out. I'm also considering buying the note 3 again. I really miss that phone.

    The s4 was the worst phone ive had. The s5 wont be much better. Especially with knox and a locked virgin tight bootloader. How did the m8 fall short? If anything i bet it will be phone of the year again just based on design. I also bet we get s-off and more development.

    Just my 2 cents. Btw i think we had this arguement last year too.

    Falls short compared to what exactly? The phone is beating (Or matching depending on how those dual camera's perform) the HTC M8, and the only thing the Xperia Z2 has over it is an extra GB of ram.

    So you say specs matter and mention the Galaxy series has fallen short, then when asked to explain it, you proceed to rant about how YOU hate the galaxy series and don't mention the specs at all....yeah.

    For people coming from the s3 its a decent upgrade. For s4 owners its S model update at best. This phone is being bashed all over the internet. Not just by me.

    -The S5 Camera is great even in low light
    -Battery has been tested to have 12 hrs screen time (depending on use)
    -Water Resistant

    It's much better than the S4 which was not bad but battery sucked

    Galaxy S5 has a bigger battery than the M8
    The old HTC One design is better than the new one IMO

    Ill say one thing. If you compare the s5 and m8 launch to last years s4 and m7 the hype machine isnt even on the same level. As in its almost non exsistant even on xda.

    I am wondering about the price of the Amazon phones. If they can come out with something comparable to the Nexus or Moto G, that could be really tempting.

    I played with the S5 today at bestbuy. Was sold after 30 secs. Much nicer than my S4 and Touchwiz has been extremely refined. Regardless of what the M8 brings I preordered my S5. With the release of the M8, S5, and LG G3, later this summer, I think apple is in for a rude awakening. If apple doesnt hit a grand slam with their IP6 I think there days are numbered in the phone supremacy market. There will always be the Apple Fans but the GS5 is truly a great device

    I think Apple has an advantage this year. All Apple fans are anticipating significant hardware changes. If they make the screen bigger, they will sell an obscene amount of phones.

    The S4 is thought, by some, to be a great device too. As is the Note 3, HTC One and G2. Folks that prefer iGadgets will continue to prefer them (some, believe it or not, have already COMMITTED in their mind the the iP6 (check the iMore threads)). However, each platform will continue to rob the other of users...such is how the game is played.
