Here is the full retail price of the all new HTC One (M8)
The all new HTC One (M8) has been hyped to a level usually not seen for a smartphone that doesn't have an Apple on its back plate. Even the annual unveiling of Samsung's flagship phone never reached the manic level we've seen for the HTC One sequel. What is it about the all new HTC One (M8) that has everyone reacting like this? Could it be the dual-cameras on the back of the device? The dual LED flash? Or is it that HTC listened to its customers and added a microSD slot. And this time, instead of opting for the Snapdragon 600, HTC is powering the M8 with a Snapdragon 801.

Whatever the reason, if all of this pre-unveiling excitement is turned into orders, HTC could have the hottest Android phone on the market this year. And it is not as though the competition is sitting still. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to ring up some pretty big numbers despite the fairly tepid response to its unveiling. Unlike the HTC handset, the Galaxy S5 will include a heart rate monitor, fingerprint sensor and IP67 certification. LG will eventually introduce the LG G3, and Sony has the Sony Xperia Z2, both of which are also challengers to HTC's new model. And if Oppo can ever work out a U.S. carrier distribution deal for its Oppo Find 7, all bets are off.

If you've already decided on the all new HTC One (M8), we have some important information for you this morning. A tweet from master leaker evleaks reveals that the M8 will be priced at $600 sans contract. That matches the pricing for the all old HTC One (M7). And the tweet goes on to add that the gold colored M8 is a Best Buy only SKU.

Tuesday is right around the corner, and all of the hype will culminate in the unveiling of the all new HTC One (M8). After Tuesday, we will see if HTC has really learned how to market a phone.

Subjunctive to opinion. I was going to get the S5 but want to switch it up a bit now. Next OEM in sight is Apple.

I'm possibly ditching Samsung also. Maybe to Z2, I've always loved Sony products, but display has been dealbreaker. Really tempted by iPhone 6 and new One, too.

Not trying to start an argument, but how can you be tempted by a phone that is only rumors, has no confirmed specs or features?

sami disappoint me every year with cheap design and crap plastic...
We talk about high-range device and samsung dont undrstand it..
I even prefer desire 816 every time over $5.

How do you know which is better, when neither phones been released yet? You then say its "much better". Please explain to us how?

86. Taters (Posts: 2648; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


I am not him so I can't answer for him in particular but I know the S5 is better already based on a few premises.

1. HTC sucks and Samsung doesn't

2. The HTC One is much fatter, taller, and heavier and the GS5 is already too big itself so that makes the HTC One 2014 way way too big.

3. It has on screen buttons and the double tap to wake on the HTC probably isn't going to be as reliable as pressing a physical home button.

4. The power button is and on screen buttons are in really stupid places and it seems like HTC hasn't learned how to achieve proper ergonomics yet.

That is just off the top of my head. And I am sure there will be a lot more in favor of the GS5 once the reviews trickle in. Such as better battery life, better gps signal, way faster charging etc. of course you will have the usual websites saying ooh but HTC is the metal and Samsung is cheap plastic but that still doesn't change that the GS5 will most likely be the superior phone in the areas that count.

Really the all thing you say just is you're opinion
I think Samsung sucks and HTC rocks
I think Samsung is to ugly and HTC is so much beautiful
I think Samsung is cheap plastic and sure HTC not
I think Samsung ui is like a cartoon and sense 6 is great

That is fine and all but when all you can come up with against the GS5 is looks while I come up with serious ergonomics, pocket ability, and quality control issues, then you know there is something wrong here. This isn't just opinion.

Sure I might like something like this is the end better than a movie like Captain Phillips like how you like the One better than the GS5. However, technically, we all know which is the better movie regardless of my preferences.

In this case, the facts show the GS5 is the much better device. Just wait until the google play editions get release. The GS5 will soundly outperform the HTC one and you won't be able to hide behind sense >>>>touch wiz.

Probably because he's basing his knowledge (opinion) on that it's just HTC and historically based on all the quality control issues they've had with all their devices, the most recent HTC One device included.

When the date hits I may jump on the black aluminum one myself. Sense looks far enough away from standard android for me to enjoy it.

The Galaxy S5 is $750 off contract for the 16 GB version, so this should give HTC some leverage. They would have an even better advantage if they lowered the carrier subsidized cost as well, but that's asking a bit too much. Can't wait for this device to come out, it's supposed to release on launch day for Verizon, which makes me happy. 3 more days!

750 for 16 gigs, that's as bad as apples 16 gig. Wait a while, and it'll be on Craigslist for $450. I buy and sell so many devices there. Saves money bro. ;)

The 16 GB 5S is only $650, so Apple actually has them beat in price. That's an odd thing to say lol

Take a look at Total Hits (people who enter to view the phone specs)in GSMARENA, ....its funny...

HTC One 2014 Total hits: 444,925
S5 Total hits: 3,448,386

You really think that this is going to sell like the S5?
it's a really nice phone, but heavier and thicker without waterproof and that is all that we know until a comparison . We have to wait for camera , screen and battery life.

You talk about the S5 ugly design, i thought that making a phone thinner and lighter was a design property too...

Where HTC miss the ball is with that black bezel and on screen buttons, so that 5.2 is wasted

But sure, it's a really nice phone. For me S5 > Z2 > M8

61. ngo2dd (Posts: 781; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)


And point of is what? We all know HTC is not as popular as Samsung. BTW the S5 is water resistant not water proof there is a huge different if you font know what the IPS ranking mean then you will be in for a bad day. No other android phone still like Samsung and not other companies spend 10 billion on marketing like them either.

67. cai4651 (Posts: 26; Member since: 09 Mar 2014)


No , i am telling why i think that s5 is better than New one . it's just my opinion.

And yes, my mistake , is water resistant,

A russian guy made a review of the new Galaxy S5 , and the camera and Display looks much better than S4 .

BTW , i have an S3 but i skip the S4 cause i don't like it . So i am not a fanboy... but i think that the only thing better in the new one it's the design, but like I say before. I don[t want a phone larger, heavier and thicker only for the design if i end putting a case in it.

That's all .

You sounds like a disappointed sammy fanboy via s5...maybe s5 will sell more than this coz samsung already have solid fanbase like you..but you cannot change the fact that this phone is beautiful and s5 is ugly.just sayin

This phone is not beautiful. Maybe if it was smaller but it's a huge and heavy super brick and this phone will definitely have a lot of people returning it.

68. cai4651 (Posts: 26; Member since: 09 Mar 2014)


I'm not dissapointed. A russian guy made a review (Eldar Murtazin) about the S5 , so i talk of what i see.

So i think it's going to be hard for Htc to beat the new S5 .

You guys think that the S5 use the same display as S4, but now the AMOLED display have the same bright of LCD panels ...best of both worlds , for example. To name one upgrade...and the camera is killer
