    Hello. I currently have an unlocked HTC One M8 Android so I was wondering are there any Windows Phone devices worth getting?

    The M8 is a beast :D If you're looking for a good WP, I would say go for the 930 :)

    The build quality is great and 8.1 looks great on the Windows version Okay. Is the value equal to the 930? Because I don't know if I should trade it or sell it?

    I would trade for but it may be bit unlikely as I like the build quality of Nokia devices better due to the fact Polycarbonate holds up better than metal and also I miss having wireless charging built in.

    I have to look into the M8 for Windows as I heard the battery life is astronomical compared to the Android variant.

    Yes, there are many windows phones "worth getting." In fact, they're all worth getting at a certain price point. Decide what are your priorities and criteria, then get the phone that most closely matches.

    I do not find that as a surprise, the android variant has a lot of items running in the background for no purpose other than to chew up battery life. I had an htc one v before, could not last more than 8 hours of none or light use with every knowned power saving technique in android's world.

    While I personally love the 930, because it is a phone I have played with and find it a tad better than the m8 (don't kill me lol), but it does have problems.. Take a look around the forums, to see a few of the listed problems. However I would still recommend it, based on power, screen size, camera quality and the build.

    Ultimately the phone should be of use to you, so we can only guide you, but you have to check if the phone will live up to your personal preferences :)

    Plus 1 on the 930, I ended up getting the 830, because I wanted LTE on board. The phone is ok, but I can deal with it.

    The rm-985 ( Latin version ) has LTE and aws support (minus the band 12 support ) but it supports all of tmobiles bands :)

    ( I know because I have the rm-985 on tmobile )

    You're right.The AT&T HTC One M8 for Android has tons of bloatware preinstalled. (>_<) If I was able to root it I would within a heartbeat thus that's one of the main reasons why I like Windows Phone over Android when it comes to choice of OS.

    That's cool , there's more features with the Lumia than there is for the M8 for Windows. The think that kills me about HTC is questionable support for there devices and plus Lumia is like the Nexus of Windows Phone. Lumia phones always get first dibs when it comes to OS updates, apps and previews.

    True :D This is why I recommended the 930.. If Sony/LG ever make a WP, I'll be sure to recommend that one lol
