True Windows Upgrade

Coming from a Nokia Windows phone, I was surprised at the differences. The brightness of the screen stood out right away. On my way to Seattle, I took pictures of Mt. Rainier from the plane and the zoom on the M8 got a much closer picture than the Nokia. My Nokia did not have 8.1 yet so that added a new addition to the experience thanks to Cortana, Notification window, and alot more customizations. Boomsound really makes a huge difference when sharing videos with friends, the sound is rich and loud. The Dot view case adds alot of cool functions when the case is closed, but for me as a lefty made holding the phone ackward since the flap trys to close unless it is wrapped around and held in place behind the phone. If you wanna truely wanna feel the difference going to a Windows Phone, this is the phone to bring that experience to you!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Phone has bugs
hfielding has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Had this phone for almost 2 weeks, I really like it, but there is some type of bug. Not sure if its Hardware or software but it has issues. The phone began rebooting a number of time throughout the day for no apparent reason, Called Verizon and called HTC, both claimed they have not hear of this, but searching through the forums, there seems to be a number of people having the same issue. I had the phone exchanged only to have the same problem on the second phone.
I would not suggest buying this phone right now. See the link below.

I bought this phone cause I wanted something to work well with my widows 8.1 laptop and desktop computers. This phone is a dream and so easy to sync all devices. It also has office installed so I can view my documents and even edit them. My previous phone was an iPhone 5 and it was impossible to open secure documents that require a password.
Now to the phone, Battery life is really really great. I haven't had a phone that was this easy on the battery since before smart phones. Call Quality and reception is also great, Just as good as my iPhone I had previous to this. Internet is fast and responds right now. Camera is also good but its a feature I will not use a lot, I am a photographer and use my dslr for my photography. I was able to import all my iTunes music very easy with the app that installed once hooked up to my desktop. I listen to music daily and a lot, I think this phone does a better job then apple. It also has a micro sd card, I use this card for all my music storage so my phone is clear for anything I really need more space for. The display is great, I have NO complaints on this phone so far, It didn't take long for me to fall in love with this phone. I think if your a office user and want a very good, fast, and reliable phone this is one you should probably get.
I have had this for over 2 weeks now. I retired my bose earbuds and purchased some Bluetooth Jaybird Bluebuds x, OMG these ear buds are so good, nice and crisp music with just the right amount of...Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- Battery life, syncs with laptop and desktop computers easy, call quality is great, no dropped calles, love the camera with 2 lenses to refocus after the shot. Opens Office documents with out getting and paying for additional software or apps.
- Excellent Bluetooth for music with Jaybird bluebuds X
- Runs smooth without haveing to reboot very often.
