    I just upgraded from the DNA to the m8. The overall size is very similar but the build quality is amazing. I cannot imagine going back to a phone without front facing speakers. I have noticed the signal strength is a little bit weaker than the DNA.

    I just upgraded about a month ago from the DNA too. Loved my DNA, but 16GB and no sd slot was killing me.

    Now I got a 64GB micro dedicated strictly to music and the on board 32Gb is for apps and photos. The M8 is the best android phone I've owned yet.

    I picked one up yesterday and I am pleased with the device. I do have a minor complaint about the overall length of the phone though. I run and use a sportsband to hold my phone in place and unfortunately this unit is too long for my current band. I'll just have to find another. With that minor issue aside my purchase of this phone came with a warning from the sales rep. She started off saying this phone was completely designed for the highest quality playback of music. Then she decided to inform me that the dual front-facing speakers have been known to be blown out if the volume was turned to max level. I don't see HTC letting a design flaw like this slip through so my question to the forum is: "Has anyone had an issue with the speakers messing up yet?"

    I picked mine up on the 4th, coming from the Bionic. So far so good, now thinking about root although I don't really need it for anything yet.

    Gee, not a lot of activity here. Anyway, finally took the plunge and did S-off, rooted, and TWRP for recovery. I haven't installed a custom ROM yet but have done a nandroid of stock and Viper on the external SD ready to flash. It looks like a pretty nice ROM! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2705292

    Purchased one on July 12, upgraded from a Razr Maxx (previous from that was the HTC Droid Incredible). I take the phone off the charger in the morning and put it back on the charger the next night. I have between 15% to 20% battery left after 38 hours without charging. I tend to keep mobile data turned off and I only turn on wi-fi when I need it.

    Purchased an Incipio case and a tempered glass screen protector, I've never purchased a protection plan on any of my previous phones.

    I was on the fence with getting the Galaxy S5, but I felt the quality of the HTC One M8 was better.

    I've never rooted a phone and not sure what the big benefits are in doing so with this phone. If I did I would go with trying out the Viper ROM.

    So far I've been pretty impressed with the phone and happy with everything it does.

    If you don't have a specific need to root it's sometimes better to leave it alone, but some of us just have to tinker! :)

    Congrats Jax on the phone ...and I can tell y'all Viper One ROM is worth the root and all ..I've not left the ROM even with so many other options in development...really great job on it by developer ...first thing I use root is to freeze bloat from carrier and no ads with ad blocker ...

    That's good to know. If a reason occurs, is it possible to return a rooted phone back to it's original condition and would anyone be able to tell the phone had been rooted?
