    Just got mine in today. Everything works great (noticeably faster like everyone else said) although I am noticing I'm getting lesser bars in my own house than I was on my 925. I haven't had any dropped calls or anything yet, but it is something I'm going to be paying attention to, especially with this phone's lack of Wi-Fi calling.
    I noticed getting one bar less on signal strength compared to my 925 in my apartment. But my download/upload speeds are spot on the same as my 925. Maybe it's because of the HTC having CAT4 LTE as opposed to the CAT3 LTE in the 925?

    That might possibly be it. I didn't think of that before.

    Curiosity got the best of me and I was bored lol. This morning I spent some time testing download/upload speeds on my tmo925, 830, and tmoHTC One M8(W). I ran 4 tests on each starting with the 925. I discovered that the HTC and 830 consistently had slightly better download/upload LTE than the 925. Biggest difference was in upload (some upload speeds were almost double that of the 925). During the tests the 925 showed full 5 bars of LTE whereas both the 830 and HTC showed full 4 bars of LTE.

    Update 12/28/2014: Same tests. This time around the 925 and 830 pretty much even. HTC consistently had higher download speeds tho. (I need to get out more)

    This is my "ME TOO!!!" post. Much lighter than I was expecting, speakers and display are really nice as well. Very pleased with this phone.

    Hi Everyone,

    I was hoping to leverage the power of the forum to put some pressure on T-Mobile to release the Softcard app that has been available on AT&T and Verizon since November. Would you please voice your support in the following thread in the T-Mobile forums?

    Thanks!

    Wait, what? you mean Windows Phone apps are restricted by carrier too? WTF? Not that I use SoftCard, but WTH is the deal restricting an app to a carrier?

    I understand carrier specific apps, but something as universal as SoftCard not available on the TMO network. Come on now.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why this is the case. AT&T and Verizon got the WP Softcard app last November. Softcard is available on several android devices on T-Mobile.
