HTC One (M8) for Windows review: Tinker, Tailor

20 October 2014
What if you could pick a phone and then choose its operating system? What if you could get a popular flagship such as the HTC One (M8) and replace the Android OS with Windows Phone? Wonder no more - meet the HTC One (M8) for Windows - the only smartphone giving you the choice!

Coolmuster Android Assistant could backup almost all of your android phone contacts to computer, and we can also use it to manage android phone contacts on computer easily.

Yes, you can edit wrong numbers, add prefixes, etc. I've done that MANY times.

I'm a SATISFIED Nokia lumia 925 user since a year. Only one complaint. Nokia heats up....And not just a figure of speech. It actually literally HEATS UP.
I'm using m8 (android) for a week now. Love the handset.....but hate the OS (no offence to android). Contemplating whether to move to lumia 930 or m8 for wp.
Checked lumia 930 and noted the same problem of heating up like in 925.
M8 (android version) does not heat up at all.
Don't know the reason for heating up in lumias. Maybe hardwear related or maybe software related.
Can any m8 wp user advise if the set heats up on wp os on extensive use or not. M8 for wp is not available in pakistan. If I hear a positive reply, I will get an unlocked set from abroad.
Therefore, would request an honest opinion/feedback.

I've bought the htc 8x one year ago, was the flagship windows phone from HTC and was looking better than the nokia lumia's. But I'm very dissapoinetd because 8x is a great phone but I haven't received the windows phone 8.1 update, and probably never will. I was a fan of Microsoft, I used windows mobile 2003, 5.0, 6.0, 6.5, 7 and now 8 on my htc 8x. They always disappointed me, Microsoft always promised that the next windows platform will be a revelation, and all the windows phones will receive the latest updates because of the hardware requirments for all producers, but my htc 8x isn't receiving windows phone 8.1, and it's last year flagship. So after being fooled by Microsoft for so many years I will never buy another windows product and never a htc who can't update it's flagship!

As a Lumia user wp 8.1 is no faster than android (any android with 1GB ram) but it is smoother...

Windows User :(, 21 Oct 2014I have this phone, and I tell you it's amazing. But all my frien... moreImmediately download YouTube video downloader from store and tease them hey you don't have your own YouTube downloader and laugh on them.
2) show peopleshub and tell them how you see all twitter,fb at one place,
3) tease them how you can pin individual person separate and do message,twitter,facebook,Skype all linked to it.
4) take ur wp users contact numbers and create group in people hub and invite them.( this is exclusive for only for WP users). Here you can share photos,notes, photos, and even chat with them.

As an iphone 6 user, this is the only phone I will look as if I wanted a second device. Absolutely beautiful hardware and OS.

company phones are the way...too bad the procedures are not paying attention to them.

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2014Htc is better than nokia good one m8 :) first off, Nokia no longer builds mobile devices. second on, the history of Nokia begins somewhere around 1900 while teen HTC was established in 1997. just because you are not up to date with the facts, that doesn't mean Nokia did not build quality devices.
as the guy you replied to said, if anybody should be interested in Windows Phone, they would be better looking at Nokia and the simple answer is that those devices will receive most frequent and most particular software support :)

Nokia rulez :>

If it had the 20MP Pureview from 930, this would be the greatest phone!

Given the benchmarks, will this finally put to rest the claim that Windows phone OS leaner and faster than Android?
