    Now that HTC One M8 has been released what OS do you think looks better on it? I don't intend to start a war but which looks aesthetically more pleasing?

    Android with HTC Sense or Windows Phone 8.1?

    I'd say WP because at least it's not a barrage of colors and icons on my space. Instead it's a barrage of squares and rectangles with easy to read info because the background is a solid color :P

    Windows looks better. That's my opinion, coming from Android, after 4 years.

    This "could" be the 'phone that changes the minds of the sceptics.

    What do you expect people to say? You post this in a WP forum, you could have a block of cheese with WP written on it and ppl would say it looks better. Same as if you posted this in the Android forum. Hardware is irrelevant as both are pretty much identical so it depends on which OS you prefer.

    Though I am a huge Windows Phone supporter I will go with android with HTC Sense. My GF has it and it is absolutely gorgeous. It is really well thought in terms of functionality and the user interface is pleasing to the eye

    Well this particular start screen set up is very boring but definitely the Windows Phone flavored version. But judging from this photo, the Android one looks more appealing only because of the snoozer of a start screen.

    Well, in this particular photo: the android flavor. But, only because they aren't using start backgrounds and folders for promo photos on windows phone version.
    Idk, what is wrong with them. Makes it look like WP is stuck on years old start screen UI when clearly it is not.

    That picture just doesn't do the HTC with WP justice. The same wallpaper should've been enabled on the WP version too.

    Honestly, Android looks more fitting to me. WP just looks awkward on the One. imo

    I still personally think Sense is a fantastic skin for android (with stock quite a bit of a looker itself). I use the M7 daily and like the cohesiveness very much. I think it's tough to compare the 2 OS'es. They're wholly different and they're supposed to be.

    If you're asking which OS utilizes more space on a home screen (which is what you're getting at with the picture), then WP.

    Blink feed is a home screen on android but an app on Windows phone. Android also has the nice HTC keyboard but not possible on Windows. Sense is a beautiful UI for android.

    They need the transparent tiles and a great wallpaper on it. They will sell a lot more of them if they did

    There's an article stating that the version with WP os has 75% better battery life with same usage. Hmm.

    The issue is the staff in the stores... they'll leave the Windows phone basic or unpin all the tiles so it looks plain and boring. That's what happens to Windows tablet PCs... no wonder iPads sell more.

    We should take this as a challenge to visit our stores and configure them in a colorful way :)

    It depends on how you customize both Android and Windows Phone. Both phones in the picture are not that tastefully customized so if I had to judge by those pictures, I'd say none with a slight edge to Android =P

    It would be a much fairer comparison if you had the same background on the Windows phone version along with the HTC Clock at the top. Me personally (Looking past how the tiles are arrange :P) I'm leaning on the Windows Phone version as I feel the UI does compliment the minimalistic and simple design of the HTC.

    Before anyone say's I'm being biased, I have used the android version of the M8 before and always thought it would look pretty decent running WP. However it does depend on how they are customised (the customisation on Android can be endless if you are into flashing roms etc), in the case of WP what tiles are used, arranged and the background used.

    I think he's referring to an article from WMPU. All the author did was look at the "usage time" for each phone. The Windows version was rated for 1,260 minutes while the Android version was rated for 720 minutes. 1,260/720 = 1.75 or a 75% increase.

    The article cites Verizon and HTC, and yes it is call time and standby being measured.
