    What a load of bull****. There's nothing wrong with the HTC name. Just a bunch of fanboys who think they know what they are talking about. Before there was nokia there was HTC for MS OS devices.
    And you need to stay current. Windows mobile and windows phone are two separate entities.

    Oh a d there's nothing wrong with the HTC name? You must not have used android much in the past. Lmao. Phones get released and go unupdated and stuck in outdated versions.

    Hmm where in earth does that sound familiar? HTC went from being the number 1 in android over Samsung to third or fourth and same for windows.

    But there is nothing wrong with HTC name at all. And people dont equate bad things with HTC at all. We are just silly fanboys lmfao

    You're probably right.
    Of course if it was released by them it wwouldnot have that sub par camera.

    The m8 is a great phone that unfortunately is made by HTC. If anything, HTC name hurt it. As seen in this thread many have had bad experiences and likely won't try HTC again.
    Look the camera thing was something new they wanted to try if they would have went with a 20 mp duo camera set up the hump would be bigger than on the 1020 and that would hurt the phones sleekness. They wanted to try something different in order to set themselves apart it may not work in your eyes but its nice they tried

    Yes. Yes you are. And btw, the HTC M8 is still one of the top rated flagship devices on the market today.

    Top rated...good for them. And still not besting Samsung, moto, and LG these days. Or Lumia.

    It is your ridiculous ranting that usually results in these threads being closed. Everyone has an opinion, why continue to express the same opinion over and over and over again. It is not productive and proves nothing.

    II'm not going to get into the whole fanboy thing, but you're way off base with your unsubstantiated criticism of HTC. In fact, I'd say you're out there like Pluto. I keep a Titan II in my drawer just to remind me of how nice WP used to be and that was an amazing phone. You also seem to forget about the phone that made flashing ROMs a pastime - HD2. Name one other phone that can run 3 different OSes. Shoot, name one that can run 2.

    I have the M8, the 1520, the 920 and I had a 925 until very recently... They all took excellent photos, but honestly, for sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, it didn't matter. The M8 is faster than all of them in action, but that doesn't make it better. I will say this, for social sharing, the M8 is a great camera with a better dynamic range than the Nokia's - top to bottom. Unfortunately, that's where it ends for the M8's superiority. The Lumia PureView line was designed to be the best camera on the market in a phone. I'll pull the 1020 out since it was really a camera with a phone attached to it, but going against the 1520, 920, 925 and 830... The PureView system is amazing.

    When you look at the original topic though, Nokia/MS users don't understand what's going on in the market today. It's an all out war between Apple and Android. MS is cleaning up the mess that is left behind from Symbian, BlackBerry and a few others. There's not much in the way of 'good news' to be had in the world of Windows Phone right now. Major providers are pulling Apps (Chase Bank, Bank of America), the OS is going through another 'revamp' where your carrier might or might not give you the update, and people spend more time bickering about what device is better than what they have instead of just feeling great about the device they have. It's not a good place to be.

    Microsoft has new flagship devices in the pipe, but they are months away from launch. The Store is still a mess and UA's haven't caught on in the slightest. All the great features of Win 10 are starting to disappear just like they never happened with Win 7... Three screens, one experience... It's just not going to be a reality. If Lumia fans would start embracing others, like HTC, Blu, heck, even Yazz, then maybe Windows Phone will have a chance. Until then, Microsoft is creating a rift in their own OS group and it is going to lead to MS going Android for devices and services. It's cheaper to develop software for a platform that everyone already uses and sell the services (see the Office 365 earnings from last quarter) than it is to sell hardware that nobody wants.

    Anyways, to round this out, NO, the camera on the M8 isn't "as good" as the Lumia PureView camera, but then again, the Lumia PureView camera is only on 2 current models right now if I'm not mistaken...

    Nokia usually has more advantages with their software and camera and the camera button. Internally, the M8's the best WP, but it doesn't have all the perks of a Nokia phone. At the end of the day, the M8 was just designed for Android and should at least have added a shutter button to acknowledge it was running WP.

    Microsoft removed the shutter button requirement with 8.1. So even MS doesn't find it to be a necessity.

    To get more OEMs onboard, yes, it was very much a necessity.

    Thanks for that level headed response. My question to you is why do Lumia fans need to embrace HTC for HTC to have success exactly?

    Of course, the 930 is simply a recycled Icon. Why do we have to look down on HTC for repurposing hardware? Microsoft allowed for repurposing on purpose, to entice OEMs.
    Well, I disagree here, When the Icon/929 was announced, it was said then, that this phone would be released as a GSM version in 6 months, because of the exclusive agreement Verizon had with Nokia. This was a planned device from the birth of the ICON, not really "Recycled parts" as you put it.

    The HTC one, was out for a long time before a WP version hit, yea, the M8 was a year old or so but, IF anything this was a Recycled phone. Not being innovative at all.

    Is there a problem with that android has some really good hardware just crappy software
    Not going to comment on that in detail as we will turn it into a OS war but, HTC or not, that LG G3 with Windows Phone....man, that would be epic, that is a cool phone...

    The m8 late release is exactly why the phone isn't selling. Most people went se and icon. Those on att are awaiting 1520 and 1020 successors. The 920 owners are awaiting a proper successor to that. Apparently the 930 isn't it.....

    Had this phone been released earlier or at least without the Verizon exclusive and this phone could've been better. By the time it was released ot was old and irrelevant, no matter its 801 processor lol.

    I'm not a fan of the LG g3. But Id be curious about xperia.

    OP, my only reason to not get an HTC is the aluminum case...perfect example, HTC Titan (which I had) loved the hardware, feel etc., but when I touched the back case, the signal dropped by about 2 bars...HTC wasn't helpful with fixing it, so I ended up going to Nokia...that being said, I am not 100% against HTC because my new L920 has issues and Nokia isn't helpful in fixing it either.

    I got the HTC One M8 Windows Phone recently. As noted in another thread I made, I was sorely disappointed with the audio-out quality in this phone, both headphones or on the car stereo. That aside, I think this phone is fantastic.I think this phone beats Lumias at display sharpness and the phone seems faster than a Lumia. I also think the colors on the display look great. HTC knows how to make a good physical design because the phone feels good in the hand, and it doesn't feel cheap like a Samsung. To me though, the audio quality is a major deal-breaker, although most people would probably never notice with their earbud headphones.

    Here is a fact: The HTC One M8 for Windows is the most current offering in regards to a Windows Phone Flagship device.

    Here is my opinion: The HTC One M8 for Windows is not irrelevant or outdated. I had the pleasure of having the Lumia Icon prior to the M8 and have been more than happy with my switch to the M8. The M8 is superior in every way that counts, for me, with the exception of the camera. I am perfectly fine with this as I am not doing a lot of photography. The speed is great, the form factor of the phone is great, fit and finish are great, etc. It runs the most current released version of Windows 8.1 out of the box and does so in a buttery smooth kind of way. I have enjoyed the Lumia phones that I have had, for myself, and purchased for my son. These have included the L928, Icon, and L630. I am not sure why anybody would spread "hate" or "fud" about any phone out there, Windows or otherwise. It reeks of immaturity and an over inflated sense of self.

    Those are my final comments on this thread.

    I just dislike HTC because of the crappy quality (and support) of the HTC 8X... damn rubber coating made the beautiful blue look like garbage after a day or 2.

    the M8 looks amazing BUT after the 8X and HTC I just can't support HTC


    lol I also have an ATIV not a Nokia

    I'm not really sure why but as I can only speak for myself, the HTC One M8 is by far the best device I have owned. All 3 of my last lumias had many problems, problems that made those devices unusable. When the M8 was introduced, it felt like a breath of fresh air. A chance to try something new instead the problematic Lumias I had been using. The camera is great, I've noticed better results on it than on my 925, but apparently not a pureview=crap. Don't get me wrong- I love and appreciate everything Nokia/Microsoft are doing & have done for windows phone and I'm definitely not done using their devices, I'm excited for the next high end Lumia! But as of right now , my love for Nokia is pretty shaken. I hope the M9 is windows flavored.

    In my case, it's because I gave it a shot for a few days. Everything worked great, except for speakerphone. Two units in a row couldn't use speakerphone consistently. Speakerphone is how I run about 75% of my conversations, so that was unforgivable. Verizon was no help, and I ended up having to pay a restocking fee to go back to my Lumia 822.

    Basically, I've had three HTC phones (one of them an Android Rezound), and not one has ever turned out well. I sorta regard them the same way I regard Acer: they make pretty stuff at a reasonable price, and some people swear by them, but I've had way too many bad experiences to consider it again.

    I don't hate. That is a very strong word. Can't remember the last time I used it in a conversation.
    I actually feel sorry for HTC owners. They don't get the firmware features offered to Lumia users.

    My own reason: the camera, and there are actually two reasons: OIS is nixed (the M7 does have that), and everybody knows 4MP output is way too low. I don't take a lot of photos or videos, but when I do, OIS always makes an enormous difference.
