Im noticing there's a 700Mhz LTE 'Asian' version. Could this be the first 700Mhz FDD enabled phone?

Micro SD expansion is a definite plus, love that metallic body, very cool.

There are two versions, one with 2.3GHz for Europe, Africa and Americas and 2.5GHz for Asia which is a bit of a surprise, I wonder which one is NZ getting?

I am not too concerned with the camera personally, so it would not be a reason for me not to get it.

$1100 for the 16GB version? The fkc. That's Apple pricing.

HTC blowing their foot off.

That has to be a joke, 32GB should be the minimum in 2014.

I can't give up my 64gb 4S for a 16gb HTC One/Samsung S5.
Hopefully carriers do release a 32gb version.

I'll be upgrading for the extra screen size (without being too over the top like the Note) and for the SD card slot.

I personally don't have any problems with the 4MP Ultra Pixel camera. I've had the M7 for nearly a year now and haven't found any issues with it coming from a Note with 8MP camera.

I currently have M7 and I don't think I will be getting the M8. It does look nice, however I want to skip a generation because every year I buy a new phone and there is nothing wrong with my M7.

It does look nice and shiny though...

Haha, I think I am feeling the same way - although cost is the main issue and the fact that they didn't really improve the camera at all. I do find my battery life quite lacking on my HTC One and I get frustrated with the limited storage quite frequently.

Have had a bit of a look and on the face of it I think its a great phone, certainly gives me the option of migrating from Samsung that wasn't there prior to having Ext SD card.

Don't like the capacitive buttons as it takes up screen real estate but something to get used to, the camera wouldn't be too much of an issue as long as it takes good outside pics, the  galaxy range takes rubbish inside pics but great outside.

The rest looks all good, looking forward to seeing it in the flesh so's to speak.

At this stage I will fight the urge to upgrade the M7, the camera improvements and mSD support fall into the wants not needs category for me at present so no real reason to change other than having something new and shiny! ironically, being a one eyed GPe supporter with no previous interest in Sense I am interested in having a play on 6th Sense, it might have matured in such a way that it might actually appeal to me

Not sure if anyone has already mentioned but Google Play version apparently went on sale today for USD700

160grams! Wowey! I might need to go to the gym just so I can lift this monster. Might be less weighty to carry around a telecom phone box
