    So who's going to order one today, and who's waiting to get one from a store tomorrow? I'm currently using an M8 - Android, and it's my favorite between my Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s. I like it even better than my Note 3. A lot of that is because of the software, but it's a beautiful phone.

    Windows Phone still doesn't have some of my apps that I use daily, like May My Ride. Well, it has that app but it's horrible on Windows Phone. But I'm willing to over look the lack of apps, or good apps, for a phone like this.

    I'm going to wait and check it out in store tomorrow. I want to see how bad the camera is in person before I completely write off this phone.

    Are you not from the US? If you are, walk into a Verizon store tomorrow and pick one up.

    I am from the US, but I am on AT&T and part of a family plan. I also get a discount through the company I work for to be on AT&T.

    Otherwise I would be there right now getting the phone.

    Head over to AndroidCentral and to the M8 forum there The camera isn't bad, and it captures low light pics better than any other Android phone. The whole "camera sucks" thing is so over rated with the M8.

    Unless you plan to print out poster size prints of your cat or the plate of food you had for dinner, it's fine.

    You can still get the phone, just not subsidized. Verizon phones come unlocked and it should work on AT&T's network since it's a global phone.

    You can't beat the company discount. Maybe AT&T will get it soon. I don't know what it is with HTC and Verizon. I think Verizon pushes HTC phones more than other carriers, so maybe that's why it's an exclusive. Or maybe because they did a similar thing with the Android M8, who knows...

    My brother has the M8. The camera is surprisingly good. Gets bright images and does well in low light. The refocus ability goes way beyond what even Nokia's Refocus app offers because of the second camera. It's not the 1020 or 1520, but it does very well compared to other shooters on the 920 or the S5 or the iPhone. For most daily use, it's fine. We're spoiled with Nokia, but most phone camera can never replace a good point and shoot or a DSLR. I still use my point and shoot at times because it has a good 5X optical zoom and a 14.1 megapixel sensor. Truth is that phones can do well, but they are still not specialized. Without an optical zoom, there are limits on what can be done.

    The HTC One M8 is not a camera that zooms, but it captures images well and is good for out and about photos.

    I have heard there are mms issues using a Verizon phone on a GSM network. If that's not true, I would get this phone, since I really don't care about LTE

    I can see it, however the price says $199 for a 2 year contract, not the announced $99.

    I take distance shots outdoors which is 90% of my camera shots, distant landscapes, mountains etc. My icon excels at this. If I was an indoor or close up shooter it'd be diff. I'm tempted to get it for the two week return period as a test device. Who knows, it might be fine.

    I am using a Verizon Droid Maxx on AT&T, with no MMS issues. Just no LTE, but HSPA is plenty fast.

    Not until the release more colour options. I was hoping they'd have the red available at launch. The grey is just... plain?

    I ordered for store pickup yesterday - I expected the store to tell me they couldn't give it to me until today, but to my surprise, they actually gave it to me.

    HTC is a great hardware. I have one. An HTC One X android phone. The only thing I don't like about HTC is they are slow in pushing updates. I had that problem with the One X. Since Nokia is owned by Microsoft, updates will roll out faster that any other device.
    Otherwise, HTC is really a great device. Enjoy!
