    Just got this phone 2 days ago. It is a great phone. Camera takes good shots, comparable to shots taken with my old iphone 5

    Yes Samsung signed a deal with best buy like apple did to have a store with in a store to showcase all of their products.


    Shoot, don't even get another smartphone until you actually "need" it!

    This. Most kids don't need a smartphone. They just get it for the "cool factor"

    you'd be a leader with the m8 for a 14 year olds..... all the kids want the s5 even if it's sucky.....

    it's what kids do these days!
    Kids are spoiled. When I was 14 the hottest phone was the razr. Super thin with a thin hinge. A very high quality resoultion screen. Made all the other flip phones look like crap. I never got to get one. Closest one I got was the Motorola i9 back in 2009 before the battery almost caught fire....

    Well I'm getting a phone very soon now, and I am pretty sure I am getting the M8.
    I will admit that we kids are spoiled at our school/ neighborhood, and if I am able to get a good phone, (m8) I will. One problem is that about 80% of the people at my school have an iPhone, and I am kinda making a social sacrifice by getting an android. What are some good reasons to tell my friends why android is better than iOS? I know about customization and stuff, but what would be some good things to show them the superiority of android?

    If you wait for something that's better around the corner, you'll never get anything because there's always something around the corner.

    I say just get it. It's a great phone and will be a monstrous upgrade from your current device.

    If you want the m8, then get it. Who cares what 80% of your school will think? If you lived your life based on what 80% of your peers are doing, then you aren't really living YOUR life are you?

    Android isn't better than ios. Ios isn't better than android. Better is completely subjective, what you find better may not be what the majority finds better.

    Ultimately you should be buying a phone to suit your needs best, and if it so happens to be an android phone, then that's great. If it's an iPhone, that's great too. Don't let others dictate what device you purchase, or anything for that matter. You are your own person

    Well you can do a hell lot more on Android than the iPhone both stock and rooting. From extensive customizations, to even installing a whole new rom on it. With the iPhone you are stuck.

    Both platforms offer good and bad sides.

    I really Dobut anyone cares what phone you chose. If your friends leave you because they have iPhones and you got the m8 then they were never true friends. Hate to be blunt about it but it's the truth.

    I do use gmail, but only for my personal emails. At work we use an exchange server. It is the work emails i would miss the most since i am more productive for receiving them
    As for the S5 vs. M8 thing: with the M8 you get a premium phone while with the S5 you get a mass-market handset. Depends on your personal taste. I had both and stuck with the M8 because the S5 is not a fast phone. It's annoyingly laggy, although fresh owners will tell you otherwise to justify their purchase. Also, there seem to be quite a few Samsung employees lurking around this and other forums (not surprising when you think of how much Samsung spends for marketing) attacking anyone who criticizes the S5's speed. Just Google for it and you'll see what I mean by S5 lag.

    uh, just say you like it better. No need to prove superiority one way or the other.

    Ok, thanks for all the replies guys! I am probably getting the M8 this weekend.
    One question I still have is, Does Samsung pay for the S5 to be everywhere? As said before, when I was at Best Buy the S5 had a giant booth in the middle of the store while the M8 was just next to all the other phones. Also a guy at the booth wearing the Best Buy uniform said that he actually works for Samsung. :/
    Also why is "The all new Samsung Galaxy S5!" the top thing on android central while the HTC One M8 is nowhere to be seen up there? I saw that it was up there a few days ago but not it is just the S5.
    Yeah Samsung has a huge marketing budget and really pay attention lot to make sure their devices get maximum exposure to consumers.

    Well they do market alot but Samsung actually has "Samsung stores" inside of Best Buy. That's why the employee told him he works for Samsung.
