    Oh, any announcement concerning first party wireless charging cases from HTC? (the Dots case should have included this in my opinion)
    Nope. Anything like that would have to plug into the micro USB

    Alright Phil,

    You've played with both the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 now. Gun to your head, which would you buy if you could only get one.

    How much can you zoom in photos taken by the dual camera, in the gallery app? Apparently I can't zoom too much with the 2013 HTC One gallery app. It's important for me.

    Those phones have a 1080p display, which is 2MP (16:9) and the photos are only 4.1MP. How much do you expect to be able to zoom in them? Usually once you get to 1:1 the gallery stops zooming...

    Hey Phil, has the stock e-mail been updated? How does it compare to the stock (non-gmail) version on the Nexus 5? Thanks.

    Hey Phil, know anything about carrier availability of the glacial silver option? Verizon is the only one offering that right now.

    I dont know if this has been asked yet but...

    I bought mine today at Verizion about an hour after release.....stated they sell it with the Dot View...

    Well they all looked at me crazy when i said i was buying it FULL PRICE and wanted the case. They didnt have the case.....of course.

    Anways. My question is: Where is my INTERNET APP? Google Chrome is in place of where it should be on the home menu. Ive checked my entire phone and even rebooted it twice and its not on there. I fell in love with the standard Sense browser. I definitely do not want to use chrome or anything else. Paying 600 for this and im missing one tiny thing that turns out to be a huge one for me because im constantly browsing. I even "live chatted" with HTC and they suggested some stupid things as if im a 90 year old woman trying to find the app. They finally just said im stuck with Chrome.

    So what happend? am i the only one?

    And you've checked through apps in the settings to make sure it's not installed but hidden from the app drawer? Seems like something you could get a replacement for. You might just try Next Browser too if you don't want to mess with exchanges, it's slightly more similar in layout to the stock browser than Chrome is, and significantly faster in my experience.

    HTC may have decided that Chrome is good enough. Or Verizon did....maybe.

    Here are a few of questions:

    - I can't find any confirmation about a headphone amplifier. My M7 has it and I can say it's one of those little things you can't live without after using them. It drives high end headphones with ease, something really needed if you want to take advantage of your cans.

    - The M8 doesn't have OIS. One of the things I like of the M7 is that you can almost always pop up the phone and fire away without handling it tight. It prevents blurry photos when you are in a hurry. It has something to do with the great focus performance and I've read it's good as well on the M8. Would it make a difference on quick shots? The hand shake mode is something always on or is it a separate preset on the camera app?

    - The camera again. On daylight shots the M7 will blow out the skies and bright areas many times. You can control this by changing the focus point but I'm wondering if this has been improved on the M8. I like to take a lot of outdoor shots and with quick ones I need to remember to change the focus point if the scene is too bright.

    Thanks in advance. I'm really expecting to change my M7 for the M8 in a few months when my contract is due.

    Hey Phil, first, is the 32gb version available? And if not, how much internal are you left with? Also, how's Battery life so far? (probably to early to ask)

    10GB on the 16GB model.

    It's there on the M8 too.

    - The M8 doesn't have OIS. One of the things I like of the M7 is that you can almost always pop up the phone and fire away without handling it tight. It prevents blurry photos when you are in a hurry. It has something to do with the great focus performance and I've read it's good as well on the M8. Would it make a difference on quick shots?

    There are absolutely going to be times you'll get blurry shots because OIS isn't there. But the sensor itself (and whatever stabilizing software is behind it) compensates pretty well — unless you're actually walking and shooting in low light you'll probably be fine. In my experience OIS didn't make a whole lot of difference on the M7 anyway. Pictures from the Max and Mini, without OIS, were more or less the same.

    - The camera again. On daylight shots the M7 will blow out the skies and bright areas many times. You can control this by changing the focus point but I'm wondering if this has been improved on the M8. I like to take a lot of outdoor shots and with quick ones I need to remember to change the focus point if the scene is too bright.
    This is MUCH improved on the M8. No more blowout in bright scenes.

    Maybe it's a US or Verizon thing, because my UK version has the HTC browser ("Internet") as well as Chrome.

    The weather widgets from Sense 5 (and even Sense 4) are still available.

    When you take a "long Zoe" in that mode / app, can you still take the slider and drag thru the frames it captures, or are you just looking at a video and taking pictures from it?

    It captures up to 20 rapid-fire stills from the start, which you can scroll through like before. So if you're recording a longer Zoe you'll only get stills from the first few seconds.

    Must be Verizon because I have the stock browser on my T-Mobile US version M8 and it is on the dock bar. (yes I have one - btw, it has no T-Mobile branding on the body)

    I'm not Phil, but the 32GB is available and the standard on all U.S. carriers. My One M8 (T-Mo US) had 24.93 GB of the 32GBs actually available.
