Detailed review
I purchased the HTC One when it first came out and immediately noticed some limitations. There was no SD Card slot and that was my major issue. Now, with the HTC One M8, that concern is gone. The M8 feels great in your hand, but it can be slippery if you don't have a good grip on the phone. The interface is clean and easy to work with. It feels really comfortable to navigate and rarely hesitates. The notification area is way more efficient than my Galaxy S 4. The camera seems fine, but I have had an issue where the camera will crash every time I open it in portrait mode. It works fine in landscape mode, but as soon as I rotate the phone it crashes. This just happened today, and I am sure it would be fixed with a software reset. Overall, I really love this phone and I couldn't be paid to take another galaxy, even the 5. HTC has figured out what users want, especially with the six month guarantee that they will fix a cracked screen.

I have an update on the Camera situation! Last Pass was installed and that caused the issue! Weird, but true. HTC Live Chat solved the issue rapidly.
