    Who wants a video comparison to see what is the best phone in terms of OS? This will show what operating system is better running in the same phone: battery life, performance, etc

    Please wpcentral make a video

    Not a fair take. Of course Android will win easy because of the PlayStore dev's support.

    But this is a huge step forward for Windows Phone. Hopefully this device will increase market shares. Thus attracting more dev's to Develop apps for the Windows Phones store.

    Interesting - just read this on wmpower user (sorry can't post the link), re the HTC one

    "During usage (the important bit really) the Windows Phone has 21 hours usage time vs 12 on Android, thats 75% more."

    I'd like to see a side by side boot speed comparison, followed by apps that are available on both OS' to see how they stack up on each variant

    It looks better with Windows Phone on it but still not interested in anything but Lumia.

    Am I correct in saying that this is the first time that Android & WP are on the exact same device? It will be interesting indeed!

    $750? It's $600 off-contract from Verizon.

    The M8 (with android) has very, very stellar battery life. Take a look around and that's pretty much the case with most users and reviewers.

    If WP variant has better battery life, that's at least one feather in that cap over android

    They must have updated that number, when I first looked it said $750, but that was also when it said $199 on contract. This just made my decision much harder....

    The Android version will win !
    The Windows version does not have a notification-led and no glance feature so you will miss important calls/sms/emails !
    Flawed design...

    My question here is why HTC didn't add the camera button.
