Has anyone had a warranty repair on local HTC one m8 before? I wonder if they repair or replace the phone these days. My depth sensing lens is collecting small amount of dust specks, and hopefully if it does get worse I want to get this sorted out. I have a Vodafone version purchased from Noel leeming. Anyone with experience please let me know!

Hoping someone can help?

I can't seem to post/share pictures from the camera or the photo gallery to Facebook - It keeps saying "Unfortunately Facebook has stopped"

I tried doing a search in Google...but not having much luck finding the cause and fix.

A cheaper model which was a temporary one (which i never ended up replacing for like a year and half) Desire C.

Yep, for sure but cheaper than if you had got it straight after launch. 

You'd be getting the update to Lollipop 5.0 in due course and according to rumours Sense 7 sometime between May and July next year, which would be up to date with whatever HTC releases for 2015 flagship, albeit slightly outdated hardware specs.

MKBHD says its the phone of the year so why not. Is the camera as bad as they say it is?

Comparing against family members S5, i prefer the photos from the M8.

Got it I love everything about it. But one question. How do I hide the nav bar at the bottom while typing and browsing and stuff ?

Well so in the last few days I have heard from a staff member and a customer both with m8's that complain that the phone unlocks in their pocket. One them has already tried turning off tap to unlock etc, and still the same. 

Anyone else having this issue or know if it's a fixable issue?

i had this issue when i first got mine.

always in the habit of power button up screen facing out now, never get the problem.


M8 is large enough that i have it out of pocket more than in it however, can be a bit of a pain when driving and such otherwise.
