Damn, I'm really overdue for an upgrade. My Samsung S1 broke and I'm back to using my Nokia 6300 from 7~8 Years ago... Nice video :) (My Favorite thing about this is probably the speakers, I spend a lot of time on YouTube using my phone. )

I have HTC Sense 6.0 on my M7 with the help of a custom ROM.

 

I really like HTC sense. Blinkfeed has become genuinely useful, their mail, message, gallery, camera and calendar apps are all excellent, I actually miss them when I'm on a different Rom.

Finally got to use the M8 for a few minutes. My god the build quality is just superior to everything else.

Why is this phone not flying of the shelf?

My favorite thing about the M8 is the design and overall vision HTC has for this phone. Few Android manufacturers value build quality and simplicity like HTC does. It's not too simple, though. Just a sweet spot.


My build:


CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4.0GHz Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 RAM: 12GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 Storage: Samsung 120GB 840 SSD Cooling: Corsair H100 with Noctuas Case: Fractal Arc Midi R2

My favorite thing about the HTC M8 is the second camera that gathers more depth information. I could find great uses of this for other thank taking cat pictures. 

 

However, more cat videos please,

wow. that is one beast phone. im actually having second thoughts about my note 3, too bad i already bought it :( (no regrets). linus you make a really good salesman btw. ;)

- my favorite thing has to be that they perfected the build quality and added a micro sd card. removable battery didn't even matter i mean come on guys who actually carries around a spare battery and as along as it got me through the day like linus said i'd be happy with the amazing looking phone. goddamn its beautiful plus that cupping thing is true even on a note 3 :P


In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only a GTX 1080, just a single 1080, where my glorious PC once stood....

My favorite thing about the M8 is the body. The M7 was great, but this generation is a huge improvement. The silver variant looks the best in my opinion.
