    I've finally had enough, I put up with no upgrade from 7.5, the big app gap with 8.0 and 8.1, upgraded to Windows 10 insider on my M8 and loved it, and now they are saying I will not be getting anymore updates and no Redstone. Time to move on, Microsoft you have let me down for the last time, Android or Apple, here I come.

    If updates are what you're worried about them I suggest am iPhone because they are supported way longer than any other phone. And iOS is great

    Exactly this. Even though the M8 was one of the first phones to receive the Insider builds and HTC said they would support the phone for 2 full years, MS and HTC both went back on their promise.
    And don't tell me the experience would be bad on the M8, because it's still a flagship-grade device.

    it's a bit early to worry. It's going to come. Just live with the insider builds until it officially drops.

    The problem is that the Update Advisor doesn't say "Your phone is eligible but no update yet, wait for your carrier"
    It simply says that "Your phone is not eligible for the update".

    This is what is worrying...

    I still like M8. It isn't my primary device, but it is a device i do like using. I wish it could more updates, but I'm not surprised that as a carrier branded phone, the M8 got left behind.

    Wouldn't it be logic dictating that possibility? Why would they go and add the M8 for insider preview of it wasn't gonna get it?

    The only way the M8 might not receive the update is if HTC told Microsoft to stop "tampering" with their hardware (dot view case compatibility) and/or software (firmware).

    The HTC One M8 has better specs than all the Lumias except for the 950's. 2.3ghz Quad core, 2gb ram, 32 gb system memory and micro sd card slot. The 1520 and 930 are the only others similar, too bad, I'm bummed now.

    Yes it does, just get used to microsoft giving up. They would rather continue to **** of their loyal customers in hopes of getting new ones which never come.

    Microsoft just never learns their lesson. Time to switch is all I can say. When windows 11 comes out they will just cost them selves more customers

    I am glad I upgraded through th Insider program. Hoping they don't require me to go back to 8.1 now. I am going to switch in November, but have not decided whether it will be iOs or Android that gets my vote.

    Well, as I said, the .164 update seems decent on my M8, so if that's the last one I'll get, I'll leave it there.

    My first Windows Mobile device was a Dell Axim X50. My first Windows Mobile phone device was a HTC Touch. Been around long enough to see this sort of leaving people behind from as far back as the Windows Mobile 2003 SE days.

    Folks just don't buy windows phones as much it seems. Complicated reasons behind it, but that's where we are. Cannot blame an OEM, especially a struggling one like HTC to drop support for a phone with low sales numbers. Problem is that the phones on the platform have low sales numbers by units overall and the real star in that group - Lumia 520 - won't see Windows 10. Problem is, other phones have been left behind unceremoniously before. T-Mobile as a carrier is one of the worst offenders here...Lumia 810, HTC 8X, HTC One M8, slow update roll outs to the 925 and 521...shall I continue?

    Guess as consumers better off showing your displeasure with your wallet by changing OSes...but all isn't rosy in either iOS ville or the Android camp...

    good luck fighting viruses on android, using clean master to free u p ram every once in a while again android. and yes get prepared to experience your phone hanging . oh yes again its android. IOS well theres nothing more ugly that the home screen on IOS.

    my suggestion to you buy a flagship 950\xl and be a part of something new. windows 10 :)

    Exactly what MS wants. You to buy a new windows phone, to use Windows 10. All about sales. I'm getting rid of my M8 tomorrow for an S7. I'm always let down by MS. Then they wonder why they don't sell.

    ....of course MS would like it if people bought a new W10 phone. They are a business, it's what they do. You say youre picking up a S7. Good for you, it looks nice...very expensive too. Will you complain when Samsung stop supporting updates? This is usually around 2 years on android flagships. So, let's recap...you don't want to have to buy a new Windows phone but you can spring for one of the most expensive android handsets just like that? Okay....

    My biggest reason for wanting to switch is not OS upgrades for my phone, as the insiders ring took care of that, but the lack of business-related apps that would make my life easier. Unfortunately, many devs are only interested in the sales that go with IOS or Android. There have been some great Windows phones, but they have not kept up with the advances in the OS, nor have the devs been able to keep up with OS and hardware changes that have been too dramatic for their original code. So, it's a choice between limited apps/slow OS updates and ugly interface/etc. OR viruses and need to do regular maintenance to keep things running smoothly for the life of the phone. I think that makes my choice much clearer, unless there are leaps forward between now and upgrade time.

    That's why i use Android as my daily driver. While I'm not a heavy app user, there are certain apps i use that aren't on Windows. I could get away with a Windows phone and my Z3 Tablet Compact, but nothing out there really fits my needs hardware wise. I like the M8, but i want a better camera after compromising on cameras since i left the 925/1520/930.

    Maybe I'll come back, maybe i won't. I'll still keep my M8 for a while though...

    I have never had a smartphone that wasn't some flavor of Windows/Microsoft. I used my TMobile Jump upgrade to move from the HTC M8 to the iPhone 6s+. The OS is boring, and in many ways it's a step backward. I hate the keyboard. All of that being said, the apps are top notch, and that has more than made up for the deficiencies of iOS. I've got two years with this phone, and then I'll see what MS is offering, if they are still in the mobile device market.
