    Although my S4 is still a great phone, I feel like getting something new. The M8 definitely interests me. Another phone I'm waiting to see is the LG G3.

    If I had the extra cash laying around I'd definitely get it.

    I'd rather spend my extra cash on another techy thing. . Lol

    I'm sure it's a great phone plenty of good reviews to come ..I'm not sold on no battery swap ever ...and pics seems to be a downgrade to S4 ..N3 ..ya da ya da ..haha
    G3 will be worth a look see

    I like the looks of the M8 myself but am also interested in the LG G3 when it drops...the one drawback to the M8 is that I saw where it takes a nano sim which makes it harder to swap devices since my Note 3 uses a micro sim...

    Going from my xt926 maxx to the HTC m8 would be a huge downgrade(battery wise).
    This is the only thung stopping me from getting a new phone.
    Getting an average 15 hours of battery a day is just awesome

    I ran quadrant standard at a corporate store on the m8. Come to find out it puts the device in hyperdrive. But the phone actually has a user setting to enable this.

    I wish the droid maxx had it.

    Did you guys know that the phone includes a free back cover? AND headphones! Why can't more manufacturers do this? I think it's a great gesture.

    I must say the lite brite dot cover is pretty cool. It is reminiscent of motorola active notifications in that it sums up what you need to see. And you can use the phone without opening the cover. Only on speaker tho right?

    I don't think the VZW device comes with the free case in the box...

    Go freaking figure

    Verizon steps in again.

    They did this with the otterbox commuter cases on the Droid Maxx. They had them not include a screen protector because they felt customers would prefer to choose from their selection... Haha

    Are you coming from a note !? The best battery ever !? Can't wait to read updates as one of my two phones is a note now and I'm really stuck on s5 vs m8 (if I swap at all) and the sticking point is the non removable battery for the m8 .

    Yeah I'm a Note 3 fan.. Not giving it up... Spoiled with battery . M8 is solid love the feel in hand... But if you don't use a case like me.. It can feel a bit slippery at times.. Radios seem a little stronger in certain spots I've tested.. Camera is probably what most will complain about.. I've gotten some good and some not so good.. I'm running Nova Launcher.. Don't see Blinkfeed as much for my taste.. But Sense is really stripped down... I also wish they didn't waste a little space with the nav buttons.. Overall solid and speakers and headphones sound great..

    I need aosp and that may be the reason I go back to the LG g2. I really wanted to like this phone too but I got used to the customizations I had set on the g2 and I can't do that without perm root
