    Had it for two days and then sold it. Nice device, very high quality. Not the build quality of my 5S but it's close. Either way, build quality wasn't first on my list. Battery and Camera are pretty much one and two. The M8 gave me over 6 hours of screen time for each day that I had it. Not bad. The M8 camera wasn't as good as the 5S but on the other hand it was decent enough to get by for me. So what was the real killer for me? The length......the M8 is just ridiculously long. Felt funny and looked funny. I seriously couldn't get over the length. Felt like I was holding a metal banana. Anyway, I am officially standing in the S5 line. Had an S4 last year for a bit but the lag was terrible so I dumped it. Got to play with the S5 at BB the other day and kind of fell in love with how it felt in my hand so.......lets do this samsung. Please get it right this time for me.

    Hope you enjoy your S5. Despite what people may think about Samsung, I think they make great devices. I got rid of my 5s for the Note 3 and couldn't be happier.

    I'm looking forward to getting out this weekend and seeing both the M8 and S5. I'm not in the market at all but wanna see the hardware.

    Thanks. If the S5 is a winner then my 5S goes on Swappa. Just sold the M8 on Swappa a few minutes ago. Fantastic site.

    The M8 felt great in the Verizon store but after using it for a day I just couldn't get past the freaky long thing...

    You guys must have some small hands. The phone feels great in my hand and looks even better. I personally think the 5s is way too small and the s5 just looks terrible. To each the their own I guess

    You adjust to the size of the 5s...took me about 2 days. Now I love it.

    I didn't nor would I ever want to adjust to be able to use a device comfortably. The m8 felt great since the moment I picked it up

    I was coming from a G2 and Optimus G Pro...5.5"...it was a good adjustment, the G Pro was huge. I got to move into two 5s', a Retina Mini and an Air. It was a fun time.

    I think if you are switching devices that are decidedly different in form factor there is going to be a period of adjustment. Every time I switch devices there is an adjustment. The phone that feels the most natural to me to hold however would be the iPhone. But my preferred size is the size of my Nexus 5. I get the best of all worlds with this form factor.

    Well according to Gary Oldman, the new HTC One isn't for everyone. So there you have it

    Exactly my favorite phone is the HTC one and I still have it but it doesn't feel comfortable anymore I will buy a HTC one M8 mini in a heartbeat but the moto x is perfect for me maybe even a 4.5" phone because I use it for work and emails not games and videos

    The device feels great but is slippery as hell. I need to get an Invisible Shield or similar on it to make it stick a little more.

    ..............The M8 totally rocks.
    The change of heart because of the length of the M8?

    One of the concerns I have about the form factor is the curve on the back. I frequently use my phone while lying on my desk at my office. I use gesture typing exclusively at that point. With that curve, I could imagine that gesture typing while lying flat on on a desk would be a challenge. Have you experienced this as a problem?

    Why did you sell it and not just return it?

    I think the length is going to be the deal breaker for me too. I like the size of my G2 and really don't want anything taller.

    I have to disagree, I really like iOS7.1 ..very light, feels simple, yet does everything I want it to.

    HTC is my iPhone fix for android it like every since they settled things between the two the design has been somewhat similar but then again HTC has always made very well designed phones going back to the windows mobile 6 days but i love both OS's and for 6months i am on android and the other 6 on iOS HTC has my money and apple. I also love the GNote 3 the only samsung device i will ever claim as a keeper. IJS

    yeah there is that. My hands are on the small side. My moto x sure felt great. My 5s is too small. I need a good camera though so the moto x didn't cut it. Too bad, the m8 is a nice phone. Very nice but just a little too long for me.

    I couldn't imagine adjusting the the size of the iPhone 5S. I've had the Moto X for four months now and still feel like I'm holding someone else's phone because it is so small. I prefer 5.0-5.7 inches.

    Size complaints make me wonder... But, then again, I've been carrying a Note II since June. I couldn't imagine going to something much smaller.

    I somehow adjusted as well lol. Thought it would be impossible but we adapt. But boy it felt great to hold a big phone again

    I will check it out tomorrow. I will say the curve makes it feel great in hand vs my Nexus 5 even though it is wider. My problem is not the size but can I get used to the extra layer the HTC logo puts on. Just feels a little funny still.
