    I'm leaning toward getting an HTC One for windows phone at the end of the month, but am concerned about all the postings I see about self-rebooting problems. I also understand that forums tend to draw people looking for solutions to problems and that people who are satisfied tend to post less often. So - that said - I am wondering if there are people here who actually use this phone without problem. Thanks for your input.

    I've never had a spontaneous reboot.

    I've had mine about 2 weeks with no rebooting at all.

    Same here. No reboots, however I have always rebooted my phones every morning. Fresh start on each day. Not sure if that helps the phone as much as it helps me. ;)

    Mine is running like butter.. Love the device and love the interface... I do wish I had ordered the gray or green dot case instead of the "purple" one that is really more pink than purple, but hey, it's a head turner!

    One of the most stable phones I've had. No reboot issues, Wi-Fi works great and the battery life is outstanding.

    Looking forward to getting Cyan on my Icon to see if it is as stable.

    Keep in mind 95% of people posting are complaining about something. I am sure the vast majority of M8s run without issue. I love mine and have no problems.

    No random reboots but, the dot case freezes up my screen from time to time; I just double tap the power button to resolve that issue. Once in awhile my user interface will zoom in and I am unable to zoom out, the double tap usually fixes this issue but, I did have to power it down once to resolve the issue.

    I have had no problems with mine. Had it for about 2 weeks now. The only reboot it has done is the ones I do manually. Last time I rebooted though was about 5 days ago. Runs so smooth.

    To echo what everyone else is saying, no reboots or any other issues. I haven't done anything to the phone except use the hell out of it and still get almost 18 hours of battery life. I plug it in at night with about 28% left on it. Did I mention I use the hell out of it, on ships where it is straining to get a signal.

    Only reboots I've had are from random app crashes that restart the device. Tweetium is the biggest offender but its still vary rare for me. No random reboots otherwise. Switched from an Icon and the battery is awesome. Biggest complaint I have is that I can't see the screen with polarized sunglasses on... other than that, awesome hardware.

    Man, as a former icon owner I am loving the crap not only outta this phone but the battery is phenomenal. I can't recall going all day and then some on a phone battery that wasn't one of those bulging extended Mugen's from back in the day. I really think that 8.1 does battery well. Not so on my former icon experience running the 8.1 DP. Definitely a better experience here.

    Idk why people post stuff like that. This thing has great battery yes but posting 4 days with no charge just tells everyone you don't use your phone that much.

    Sounds like an uptime app, not an off charger app.

    Does that really look like its been off the charger 5, almost 6 days?

    Wow! How did I manage 4 days off the charger and nearly a full battery bar at the top? So weird! Maybe its because its not measuring time off the charger?


    Title of thread: Do you have an HTC One M8 for windows that doesn't have a problem?

    Quote snippet from first post:
    ... but am concerned about all the postings I see about self-rebooting problems.
    So now you know why people post stuff like that. To answer questions asked.

    Hope I was able to clear that up for ya.

    Just in case it wasn't clear though, it isn't measuring battery life, and I use my phone everyday syncing 5 email accounts, 3 calendars, and I use it to listen to music while at work.

    I had a reboot today but I got a good look at the conditions it was under. It is a signal issue and probably a windows phone specific thing. When the phone is borderline LTE and 3G, it will sometimes cause a reboot switching back and forth constantly. This causes power fluctuations in the device as well.

    This isn't uncommon,as Android phones used to do the same thing.

    Still happy I've had no spontaneous reboots as yet. This after coming back from a trip to the Oregon coast and going thru some spotty signal areas, loosing signal, dropping back to 3G and 1X several times and still no reboots. Maybe I just got lucky with this M8, but I have yet to notice any reboots I don't initiate myself. I leave it on overnight while charging to use the night clock app and any reboots would kill that app. Hasn't happened yet. I'll continue as always my morning self initiated reboot. Works wonders IMO.
    FWIW, My ICON was the same, no reboots ever except self initiated morning reboot. And this on 8.1 DP

    I've had the phone for 3 days now and zero issues. It gets amazing battery life, dot view case is amazing, so far best phone I've ever owned. Puts the Icon to shame (for me!)
