Default HTC One 2 (M8)

I just ordered two of these through Verizon. They have an awesome buy one get one free deal with $100 account credit to boot.

I had to use my free upgrade, but that means I get 2 of these beauties for about 160 bucks total.

Anyone else getting one (or two)?

Had these phones for a few days now. I'm really impressed with their speed and features. The camera is great for low light, even if only 4 ultra pixels. The foreground focus option is insanely cool.

Not worth 700 bucks, but the 80 I paid is a steal. It's an iPhone with a 5 inch screen and way sexier.

For my wifey. After a month with these babies, I can say the only competition for it is the new Samsung. The iPhone is garbage next to these. Postage stamp screen. The new iPhone is 3+ months away and will still have a smaller screen. Apple needs a new innovation to stay in the game.

My contract comes up next month and this is one of the phones I've been thinking about getting. It's between this and the Samsung Galaxy S5. I've gone to the store to test both of them out and just can't decide. I have an older model HTC that I've been really happy with, so that might be the deciding factor.

I got the HTC one m8 on March 28th, after testing out an iPhone 5 for 2 weeks.. The m8 is amazing and head and tails better than the iPhone. Only gripe is the camera isn't as great when zooming in, but for everyday pictures and low light it is incredible. Swiping thru screens is much smooter than even a galaxy s5. I enjoy the screen gestures to turn the phone on, and the screen itself is beautiful.

Agree with all that. I'm surprised there wasn't more fanfare for the rollout.

I got the otter box case which makes it uglier but really protects.

The s5 throttles itself under moderate/heavy use because of the waterproofing and plastic casing. The One's metal case dissipates heat much better and lets it run at high speed under load. The speakers on the One are soo much better too. I flashed the Skyfall rom on mine last night, it's beyond fast.

Ya I looked at that one too. The screen is a little large for my tastes and will probably negate most of the extra battery size. The speakers on the One are amazing and its the same 801 snapdragon in both. The extra gig of ram will probably help but I've yet to run anything that eats up my 2GB. I do really like the fact that its running CM Mod out of the box and seems really modder friendly. Hard to beat the price if you don't want a contact.

Just upgraded to this phone today. Got everything set up and I'm really liking it so far.

Wife got the Galaxy S5 so it will be interesting to compare the two as we use them.

Default Re: HTC One 2 (M8)

I have a serious question. How the heck do people afford phones and a data plan these days? I mean seriously. For my wife and I to have a data plan and two smart phones, it's close to 200/mth. We pay less than 70/mth now for our two phones and unlimited calling and texting. I just cannot reason within myself to spend nearly 200 dollars a month to be able to access the internet on my stinking phone.....I had to freaking cut my DirecTV off just to have the 35/mth to join a gym! I want to "get with the times" as much as anyone, and I'd love to able to get a smart phone....but dang, I just can't bring myself to do it. Most will probably consider me old, I'm not, I'm 30.

go with AIO get the phones and the sim cards and you monthly unlimited all data 2.5 gb at 4glte sped before a throttle back and unlimited call, text as well 50 per line per month and right now save an additional 10 off ... one thing to note with AIO all Taxes and fees are included in the monthly so for $90 tax and all you could have the smartphone and unlimited everything for just$90.. a pretty good deal if you have a third line you would be at $120 for three lines or $40 per line..

You sound like a reasonable man. More people should be getting rid of their overpriced garbage cable plans and joining gyms, or at least jogging outside in the mornings.

I have survived just fine the last 6 years, using only netflix streaming (8 bucks), pirated streaming for sports, and a free over the air HD antenna for the network channels. For big games I head to a friends house for ESPN.

As for my smartphones, it took me a while to break down and get a real one, as I enjoyed being disconnected. Now that I have kids, and travel in the car a decent amount, I find them more useful (maps and Yelp etc.). I only pay 113 a month for two HTC ones on Verizon. This includes a 15% discount on main line for being state employee, and a data ceiling of only 2GB combined. This seems restrictive, but if you just remember to not stream video to your phone except when you're using wireless, it's easy. I even listen to a decent amount of Pandora at work, and it doesn't use that much. My comcast highspeed internet bill is only 40/month.

So for about 161 dollars, my TV, phone and internet are covered. I feel pretty good about that. A family gym membership with childcare included is easy to afford with those savings. #lifehack

yeah but they are pretty cheap.. less than 50 bucks unless you go with something super new..you buy your own phone ebay or otherwise and then get a sim card from them..

They don't use Verizon or any of the major sellers. You can get unlimited talk text and 5GB high speed data (rest low speed but unlimited) without a contract for two lines at less that $90/month. You do have to provide the phone, but they are all over the place. I bought two Galaxy s3's right when the s4's came out for $150 each and put them on Wal-Mart Family mobile. Service is just fine. I do have a few coverage spots that aren't as god as Verizon, but for Less than half the price, I can deal with that.
