I have a feeling that the M8 will see lots of attention. It's HTC's flagship for 2014 Just like the One for 2013. They are striving to keep their share of the market and if not... to increase it. I think they will be all over taking care that they are creating and keeping their customers. Updates.. support... I think this phone will be on top of their list.

Going from an EVO4g to an iphone 5. I'm excited to go back to HTC with this. I hope the camera is sufficient, this iphone does spoil you on that department.

I like my HTC One now and nothing wrong with it.

Now I feel I need something bigger. I want a removable battery also. I like the idea of s-pen.

I am going to get the Note 4 in Oct. It will be my first ever Samsung phone.

HTC's new One smartphone to go on sale 'just minutes after it is officially announced'

If this is true we might be able to get it next week!

With the metal body dose not look like it will have wireless charging built in. The DNA has me spoiled there. If I wanted a phone that I have to fuss with a cable I'd go back to a landline as primary. So likely passing on this one too. May have to abandon HTC for 2015 if they stay with old tech.

I read somewhere that the M8 was rumored to be capable of inductive charging. I'm like you in that I don't see how that's possible. Not a deal breaker for me but I was pretty spoiled to wireless charging with my Rezound. It quit working about a month back so I've adapted. Not the end of the world. I do like wireless though.

Yea I have just been spoiled by the DNA. A year and a half and no issues with wireless charging at all. Love it.

Going back to having to mess with using a cord to charge would be like going back to a corded home phone. Going backwards in my humble opinion.

I look forward to the day they charge via energy from the air. I know they are working on such tech. That would be awesome not to even have to worry about it.

I've had 5 HTC phone's in succession, currently have a One. I'm not a fan of Samsung due to the build quality and feel of their S devices. So for me it's either the new One or Sony Z2. Either way it will be a sim free device. One reservation I have about going with Sony is they're not the quickest at updating to the latest software, esp with the device being sim free I'd want the latest updates asap. Both have a SD card slot which is good. Wireless charging would probably sway my if one or both are capable of it...

I have no idea what's gone South with my inductive charging. The first problem I had was noticed after the the major OTA the Rezound got. From that point on, it would not charge via the usb / data charge cable unless you removed the back. Being as it was a rare time that I needed to bump charge from my truck.. it wasn't a big deal. Then one day about two months ago it just quit charging. I replaced the battery but that didn't fix a thing. I took the back off and tried charging with the cable and it charged.. no problem. I then tried the wireless again but it just wouldn't charge. The phone was hot and if anything it drained instead of charging. Cleaned all connections between back and phone.. nothing worked. Perhaps a factory reset would fix it. I'm ready for a new phone. If I'm going to hassle with setting up my phone again, it's going to be the M8

Maybe I need to check out those bigger screens. Past 6 months or so I have to use my reading glasses to make out some stuff I read. And if I make the text size bigger it just looks goofy to me.

Looks like a few options over the next couple months. So we shall see.

They're not that bad actually, the Z1, Compact & Ultra are getting KitKat at the moment and their older handsets are set to get it soon.

I'd seen today that the new One actually has a 5.2" screen as opposed to the rumoured 5.0" screen....

As long as it's at least five inch I'll be happy. More is better! Just five days until we know for sure. I hope the release is right behind it's announcement.

With the new leak of a case showing up to Verizon stores today, looks as though Verizon could grab this phone on March 25th. That would be unheard for Verizon, and I hope they do. I wouldn't mind picking this phone up.

Looks as though the March 25th release date for Verizon is real.

Apparently it's a 16 megapixel and 4 ultrapixel setup on the phone.

Also there have been leaks of a dummy phone next to other handsets and the only phone bigger than it was the note 3 :/

Dont forget about the sony Z1, but yeah the phone itself is a lot bigger than it probably should be.

Hmm, nothing about what Sprint is up to.....

My upgrade is in June anyway, unless I can finagle something.

At least it will be out and I can get a chance to take a look at it, see reviews before I decide to get it.

I've seen other rumors that Verizon will be one of the first to have the phone.
That makes my day lol. They are usually among the last.

There will be a number of us here putting it though it's paces before June.. or at least I hope we are. You should be able to weigh what's posted against your needs/desires before you make a decision. My contract was up early Nov. last. I've been waiting for the 2014 HTC offering since then.

ill be picking one up for sure,but that prolly doesnt surprise anyone

there are rumors htc will make a nexus tablet later this year,ill prolly have to have one of them as well

ill be waiting for a t mobile variant,or until i learn that there will not be one. hopefully by that point an s off method will be confirmed working

i was really disapointed with the ones 4.7 inch screen size,so the bigger screen im looking forward to,along with having a real sd card again.

the cm phone is really tempting,but im prolly too much of an htc finatic

More and more I am thinking what the hell and go for this anyway with the battery I should be good to go all day and then just charge over night.

With the DNA I have gotten so use to just putting it on the charging pad when at home and snatching it up on the way out the door. Nice being able to just grab it in a dark room too not fumbling with unplugging from a cord. Yes it has spoiled me. I have a watch that charges that way too.

Wireless charging is so very handy... agreed. I hate the wires and the mess of plugging the phone in etc. Still not a deal breaker but I do like wireless. I think the battery will be fine. I'm accustomed to limping by on a 1620mAh stock battery with my Rezound. Anything would be an improvement lol.

Yeah, kinda sucks, but on the flip side Sprint had the HTC One right away so I guess it's Verizon's turn. I'll be waiting with you lol... Mind if we share a corner?

In title and article it talks of retail exclusive. I wonder if AT&T will be selling it online. They seem to be gearing up for a March 25th launch of some sort too.

Verizon is always dead last to get a release. Don't hate on them. Naturally I'm doing back flips being I'm with big red. I get the feeling that HTC is all about getting this phone out in the public's hand. If they struck a special deal with big red I bet it isn't for any length of time. To announce and release on the same day is uncommon for HTC. To announce both in Europe and USA the same time is not common. I think they are after shock and awe. ... and why not. It's going to be their 2014 flagship. And if it's going to influence users of the One to upgrade... it's going to be special.

Default Tire Kicking...........

Dropping by the local BEST BUY on Tuesday anyway to check out the working demo of the SAMSUNG GS5,so,should the reports of availability on 3/25/14 hold up,might as well take a look @ the latest incarnation of the ONE.

Quite pleased w/what I'm using ATM,but,I do have a "JUMP" coming up on 3/31 ,burning a hole in my pocket,so..........

Had the ONE for 6 months & liked everything but a nasty B/T-Call quality issue (which affected a small percentage of T-Mobile handsets) & couldn't get any satisfaction w/HTC at the time.
I'd definitely give 'em another shot,& buy/try in-store 1st vs on-line purchase.

We'll see how it goes.....

I'm in a similar predicament. I love my current handset, but I miss HTC. I'll hold off a bit though, probably until it's S-OFF'd.

I just need to sell the idea to Mrs Presidente....

Yeah,I've developed quite a nasty NEW PHONE Habit in the past year (six devices in the last 11 months,seven counting the tablet).Been a grand total of 46 DAYS since the last "SLIP" (G-FLEX).

Would be cool to hear of solid plans on a MAX version from the get-go.
Just as marctronixx,I've become a fan of the larger-screened phones.

Unless you're a fan of the NEXUS/total stock ANDROID experience,I'd skip the GPE variety.I had,for a brief time,the GPE variant of the MOTO G & became bored w/it almost immediately.
Also,depending on which carrier you're with,the radios may not be fully compatible w/a GPE phone.Just something to look into before opting for any GPE phone.

I like the simplicity of the notifications menu on stock. I hate what Samsung does and HTC from what I remember wasn't much better (I had the one for a bit around its launch).

I ordered a Nexus today too just in case.

I guess my phone habit isn't much better. :-)

^^^^
Was gonna mention this,but,I figured you were eyeing it anyway.
For the stock experience,the NEXUS 5 is the best bang-for-the buck,unless you're just a fan of the HTC hardware.
If that's the case,then holding out for the GPE version is the way to go,even though it'll take a bigger bite out of the wallet.

Only time will tell if they even release a GPE for this, I just want to see the darn thing period. :P

Only 2 days left, I will absolutely be going into a Verizon store Tuesday afternoon to take a look at one of these. Starting to get butterflies in my stomach, and I know I won't be able to get one for a while.

Should BEST BUY not have any on-hand on 3/25,I won't have to look any further than across the street to a VZW store to get a look.

The GOOGLE PLAY STORE has quite a few devices to choose from already,definitely anyone's guess when/if a GPE will see the light of day,other than a tweet from evleaks mentioning it a while back.
