Should I get an HTC One M8 now or wait for the HTC phone to release?

Depends on how badly you need a phone.

If you need one asap, then get the One M8. If you can hold on to what you have for a while, then wait for the Hima.

The Him a should be better than the One M8 in every respect, especially the camera in outdoor shots.

I'm hanging out for the Hima. Sounds like it's shaping up to be an amazing device. The camera was the one aspect which gets the most criticism, so if they can address that, then it'll be a very, very competitive phone.

3 months isn't ~that~ big of a deal. (coming from the guy that's been waiting for something worthwhile since May.)

Why?

If I'm not mistaken, it will be a 64 bit processor which is not just a buzzword. While it may not see a noticeable performance increase, they will be much more efficient which could lead to a snappier interface and longer lasting batteries.

Personally I will be going with the "Hima", S6, or the iPhone 6+. I'm a big fan of HTC and the M7 has been a great phone. Hopefully the Hima follows suit!

Yeah, the 810 is actually why I'm holding off on an upgrade. Was really close to pulling the trigger on the N6, but I'm waiting to see what comes out next spring. While the 805 is a great chip, it's not much different from the 801 other than a better GPU, which only just barely runs a QHD display. The 810 uses a newer ARM architecture, has high and low power cores, an even better GPU, more advanced cell radios (i.e. LTE-A), and of course is 64 bit.

The 64 bit may or may not be important... depends how quick things get pushed to 64 bit support. As Jerry has mentioned several times on podcasts, it's only a matter of time before Google starts building cool new features that can only be supported on 64 bit chips. It's probably not likely many of those will start rolling out in the next year, but maybe within the next 2 years. Lots of people want their phone to stay "current" for 2+ years, so it realistically could become an issue within a current phone's lifespan.

Since May LOL...you have some patience LOL. I have an old GS3 that still works, not crazy about it anymore but what the heck, I've gone this long, why not wait for the new M9 (or whatever it is) LG G4, maybe One Plus comes out with a Verizon phone.

I am rocking a cracked screen GS3 as well, really hoping I can hold out until March/April.

If you have to have a phone right now look for a used M7or M8 and save most of your money for when Hima is released.

Me I upgrade every year when the new flagship is released. :D
