Finally got a new phone. Ended up going with the HTC One M8. It is such a nice phone, definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a new phone

Yep it came down to those two phones for me. Both are equally good and it just depends on what you need in a phone. I would be equally as happy if I had gotten the S5 from what I read about it

M7 looks/feels better than the M8 and they didn't improve the camera or resolution. I don't think its worth twice the price. Keeping my M7 for a couple more years.

I feel the same about my SG3. Even the 5 is great but I still love my phone. My next upgrade though will be the Note......unless something else blows me away.

Same.

Just curious. Are you having any issues with taking night time photos with your M7? I'm getting a purple blurr in dark shots.

Yea I am not going to upgrade till this contract is done. That is the same thing I did with my last phone, I might as well buy the "top" of the line phone now so it can last me the 3 years

Haha! iphones are going big now, seems like a desperate atempt to regain the crown of the best smartphone. Unless they come up with something ground breaking i think they are in big trouble.

One plus looks, awesome! I'm thinking of selling my G2 and buying oneplus, on the other hand I do love my phone. Plus you need an invite to be able to buy it.

It's pretty decent for the price. Not anywhere as good as Galaxy/HTC androids but pretty good.

I don't know if I agree, it seems to be just as good if not better than the expensive phones. If oneplus gets more popular, Samsungs, Iphones, HTC's etc. will have to lower their prices too.

I don't see Oneplus getting more popular. That being said, I think it'll do well.

I bought my mother the Newest Nexus this summer for her birthday, supposed to be a good phone. I used it and set it up for her and I have to say I wasn't that impressed. IMO my Galaxy 3 which is a couple years old now is better.

I wentfrom a nexus 4 to an S5. Honestly you can't go wrong with either the nexus or S5. Each offers different things. I loved the nexus for its simplicity and clean software. Then again the S5 offers a lot of perks that do sometimes come in handy; not all of them, but some of them for sure. It really depends on what tickles your fancy, and how much cash you got to burn.

It's weird, something small that I really like about the Galaxy phones are the continuous screens when swiping. I hate going on other phones, having less screens and having to the scroll back when you get to the last screen. It's small in the grand scheme of things but I like it, seems more fluid. I also like the SD card slot and the replaceable battery. I have two spare batteries on me at all times at work in case my battery dies, comes in very handy. Like you said, it depends on what you want I guess.
