    I didn't see much hate unless it crops up later. The main issue you have here is carrier exclusive. That's it. I would seriously consider it at the right price. However I won't be buying it next year if that's when it makes its way here. To late by then.
    I did on the verge website :/

    Hopefully by then something better will have arrived. I do think that the 830 including its pricing/carrier strategy will help MSFT make or break WP. There is enough pent up demand - low end WP folks want to upgrade but I don't think the 930 and the W8 are delivering...pretty big load for the 830 to carry, IMO.

    M8 for Windows looks awesome. Hope they release it in India. It will be a hit here as WP is the second most used OS. 😊

    Just curious, What is the cost difference between a locked and unlocked phone? Is the total cost you pay over two years for a locked phone greater than buying a phone unlocked? In India, all phones are sold unlocked. I just didn't understand why people prefer locked over unlocked phones in the US.

    its the mentality of thinking you are paying less. here in the US the carries pay the phone upfront so we get them cheaper like around 1cent, 50$,99$ 200$ stuff like that. the bad thing is that in the long run its more expensive and the phone is locked to that carrier and you cant use it on other carriers.

    The camera is still not as on point. While good enough, it won't win any awards. My question is that will HTC support their new hardware going forward? We all know that it the 8X and 8S are all but dead to HTC.

    If they update their core apps often enough, then I cannot argue with them. No one expects lumia frequency, but...

    The 830 won't carry the day. Lol. MSFT has such a ****ty relationship with the carriers it has always had to go through OEMs. Until MSFT can produce either hardware or OS good enough, it cannot sell cross carrier in the US.

    They have actually done quite a lot in terms of extra apps for M8 WP, I just hope this isn't the only WP phone they will release but new HTC devices will be coming at constant rate.
