    Interest can sometimes mean buying. And it's funny you are saying HTC has bad support on WPs, when they were the first to get GDR3, only stopped on 8.1.1 (they were allowed to, it's past 18 months), yet the 810 had the crappiest support ever. :P
    In my case, interest is tantamount to buying.

    Getting a hundred people who never considered looking at WP before, and getting at least one of them to buy the One M8 for Windows is a huge accomplishment.

    It's crazy. Here we are with hardware that can potential sway the tide in WP's favor, and there go people who try and tear that chance apart.

    Sad, really.

    When we think we aren't sheep 🐑 with our WP partners, instead, we put them down, and want them to fail and only buy Lumias. If HTC sells well, Lumia fanboys will realize that WP is growing, right?

    To be honest, I think a user first trying Windows Phone would get the W8 over the 930, for example, as it has a look that screams something else, and iPhone users like that design too.

    Well that sucks :/ already its getting out down after it was named the fastest WP in the market
    I'm sorry, but what does "getting out down" mean?

    By the way, that obvious fact was obvious. The current-gen high-end Lumia devices have Qualcomm 800 chipsets. The HTC One M8 for Windows Phone has a Qualcomm 801.

    While you're correct, I think HTC now has Microsoft to really assist them in updating their phones. Besides, it should get the same support cycle as One M8 for Android.

    Companies make promises and guarantee one day but change another. HTC can say oh yeah we will update it but another come out " oh since we are financially constraint we can't update the WP version "

    That's my reason not to buy it

    I want to know that too.

    And people think the 801 is a minor difference. They should note it isn't just speed, but also efficiency and camera processing.

    Not really.

    The Lumia fanboys, for the lack of a better word, simply Nokia sheep. That's me being extremely blunt about it.

    They'll probably end up taking HTC down no matter what.

    That would kill any demand for a One M8 for Windows Phone.

    It's like the Saturn and the Dreamcast again.

    So true. And I'm not a Nokia hater, I am typing this on my 920, but I'm not ignorant towards others.

    Which is why I love these new monthly plans where you can upgrade earlier instead of contracts. :)

    "Update past Threshold"

    Even if they follow the support cycle for the 8S, you'll most likely get to Threshold.

    An 18-month support cycle (which is fairly common among HTC devices) is going to take you past Threshold quite handily.

    A 36-month support cycle (Microsoft is aiming for this) will put Windows Phone 9.x in the equation.

    I know it doesn't make sense for you, but here in the Philippines, all carriers suck.

    Which is why I'm avoiding them as much as possible. Besides, mid-range > high-end. Deal with it.

    Don't they allow you to buy your phones at full price or just tack them on as an extra cost on your uncontract?

    I don't know why everyone keeps saying this. HTC seems VERY committed to this device. It even has HTC Advantage, an amazing FREE service!
    They seemed committed to the 8S and 8X at the time of launch...HTC's strength is they do their best to make the device work well out of the box...and that's it.

    But you won't, lol. Heck, the only thing the 8X has had bad press for is this Update 1 for 8.1. The 810 didn't even get GDR2 and Black.

    Plus, Microsoft said the OEMs had to reach at least 18 months of support. The 810 broke that rule, the 8X didn't.
    You surely must have not heard of t-mo 8X, which only officially got Portico.
