    I do like the HTC hardware and more importantly hoping for a better camera experience. I had the Nexus when it launched and wasn't totally impressed so that the camera. I may still get the HTC on Tuesday if it is available for AT&T somehow, but want to know the Nexus will be here if I can't get it. I use a Moto X mostly now but want a little bigger and a little more power.

    Cool that you're on AT&T,since all the GPE Devices to date have been 100% radio-friendly w/their network.

    Have we had any camera samples yet? I really want to give HTC a chance but I'm not sold by the dual 5MP camera.

    After the lack of detail I've seen on the old 4MP (ultrapixel) camera I hope this isn't more of the same.

    Ok he starts off by saying this is the new HTC One, not the original, and that is what he is going to be talking about..says front camera is 5 megapixels, 5" display, Full HD, 32 or 64 gb models will be released (this one is 32) external up to 128 GB.... Snapdragon 801 processor...rear cameras -- One is 4.1MP, the other is 2MP. The 2 flashes help with color accuracy... Comes with the double tap screen feature to turn it can also turn it on by swiping up the length of the screen...Using this feature you can control what app is started depending on the direction of the swipe.

    2MP camera helps you with depth of field, The 2 MP camera is used to measure the distance of objects and assists in focusing, and allows you to refocus on specific objects...

    Camera also does a "3D" effect... he was very specific that it was not a 3D camera, but looks cool.

    The phone also has a super power saving mode that will shut down everything on the phone, but can allow you to get almost 15 hours out of 5% of battery life if the phone is not used

    Overall summary: Phone is awesome and the snapdragon processor makes everything extremely smooth...Camera functions really well (he was impressed)

    -Everyone thank my awesome Fiancee Yvonne for this translation! (She is the girl in my profile pic!)

    No matter what he was saying, that's one good looking phone right there.

    Nobody is saying about the 3 button on the screen? You loose 1 row of text. :-(

    Hello everyone... new to the site!

    I'm not very up-to-date on the phones like I used to be. Lucky for me, I have put off my upgrade with Verizon for over a week now trying to figure out what I was going to do as far as upgrade.

    Saturday, I called to speak with Verizon about a bill situation and ended up talking about phones. My original thought was to go Droid Maxx because of the battery life. I have the Moto Razr and the battery will die in 4 hrs not being used. Not sure why but it gets drained while sitting on my desk at work. The app killer I have seems to not kill them.

    The lady started telling me about the HTC One/One Max and the mentioned the M8 was coming out soon. When researching I came across the LG G2.

    I know this is an M8 discussion and its a new phone so very little is known but....thoughts on how the M8 is to compare vs the others and if you have had the others...pros/coins would be great!

    Yup, I'm heading over to my Verizon store right after work tomorrow(or maybe take a long lunch), oh sh_t, guess lunch won't work, if it really won't be available until 1:00pm?? Oh well, after work will do.

    I already bought a case/holster from Amazon for $6.99, instead of the usual $19.99 one from Verizon. Figured at that price it was worth taking a risk on. It should be fine :)

    Similarly planning on picking one up tomorrow. Time to retire the 2 1/2 year old Rezound.

    So dose it look like they are actually keeping the HTC One M8 name on this? They so often change the name.

    I believe the name is "The All New HTC One".

    I have two phones on my plan, so, I have the discounted upgrade comes a around a little more often than once every two years, well, I guess it's twice every two years. But, depending on time, not necessarily one per year, I'm trying to get into a more annual rotation. But, I always get the newest one, and hand-me-down my current one to my girlfriend. But, at that rate, they're still pretty good hand-me-downs.

    I have an Iphone 5S as my daily driver, but I will be getting the M8 and add it to my share everything plan at Verizon. On the days I will be using it, I will forward my calls from the 5S to the M8. Looks awesome. Want black.

    Some are at Verizon stores right now. I'll check mines out tomorrow after morning classes. It's right behind my house. I guess I'll wait the extra two weeks, because I'm not with Big Red anymore. It's all good though.

    Looks like AT&T folks can order tomorrow. Verizon is only retail exclusive. Good news.
