    Default HTC One M8

    Ordered! Specs look awesome, HTC One M7 owner sits opposite me at work, he loves it.

    Will report when it arrives.

    From HUKD.

    Spoiler:
    "So lets summarise this as a new 'Refresher' - I am checking the below is correct not stating it is.

    1) Buy phone at £19.99 on £28 airtime balance (referred to as monthly cost of £48)
    2) Wait for topcashback (shows as £121 for me)
    3) Cancel phone element when TCB pays out (about a month), this will then be £480 (24 months x £20), plus I guess one month for the contract £28. So this then means you have spent:-

    £19.99 initial
    £480 to pay off phone (which also then cancels the contract)
    £28 for month you had an active contract

    £528 total

    You then get

    £100 HOF vouchers
    £121 Topcashback

    so -£221 which makes the new total £307 if you take the HOF vouchers at face value.

    What have I missed?"

    So you pay one months rental, after receiving cashback call and cancel, clear the 24 month phone element of the contract phone in one hit.

    This assumes cashback is paid from TopCashback etc but worth a punt.


    Samsung S5 is coming soon, might push the prices lower but honestly after Samsung fucked up my phone (S3) an OS push and took a month to rectify they can do one.

    They LG G3 is in the distance, but too far away for me.

    Nexus 6 is nearly 6 months away, this handset is here and now.

    It does look good. The extra camera is a nice gimic but the quality is a bit of a let down. Having an M7 I was hoping the camera would be better. The dot case looks amazing though and an essential add on. For me already having a M7 i can't justify the upgrade so I'm holding out for the Nexus 6

    Dot case - looking now!!

    I agree that the next Nexus will be nice (and well priced) but I can't wait that long.

    Nexus 5 would also be cool, but it's long in the tooth for a Nexus device if you see what I mean and clearly will soon be replaced.

    Fuck me that's cool.

    Ordered, had a cheeky 5 quid promo credit with Amazon, dearest case I've ever bought, however I'd have a want want want fever for the phone based on the case - it's rocking!

    This is a good video that shows off the case really well but can't do it. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Phone has arrived, they posted it through the door - no signature or anything!

    Will have time to play later.

    I am happy with my M7, big bastard but good to use, sure the M8 will be a corker.

    Initial thoughts are I'd expected it to be bigger, coming from an S3 there isn't much in it.

    Google is patching me up right now with all my apps.

    Can I put forums in my Blink Feed? Facebook is best avoided at most times!!

    Speakers are great, headphones are okay as well.

    Just flicked a YouTube selection onto my big TV - although I think you can do this with most smart devices now?
