    Get rid of the ultra pixel camera and I'd be interested.

    The rumor is they have. It will have an 18mp shooter.

    I think companies need to stop releasing such awesome phones, very bad for my wallet. I am very interested in this and the S5 Prime. I just wonder when they will be released. I can't see either being released before August, but that would be strange for the S5 Prime since the Note 4 will be right around the corner. Maybe the S5 Prime will come sooner, but I suspect the M8 Prime will be closer to September.

    Fixing the weak camera would go a long way.

    I personally am not a huge fan of the screen either. Looks a bit hazy and washed out. A different supplier would be nice.

    Other than that, very nice device.

    Sounds like the material finish will be interesting.

    The only thing the Phone needs is a better camera, the rest is prime enough for me.

    Yeah, to be honest I really like the screen size of the M8, its easy to use one handed for me and sits nicely in my pockets.

    I just want that 18mp camera :)

    Feel the same way....if the M8 had the same shooter as the S5...it would be my daily driver, IMHO the camera was the only think holding the M8 back. I can get used to the button placement and the logo on the screen. If this is true the M8 Prime will give the new LG G3 a run at being a true beast phone!

    Waterproof and a real camera? :eek: Even with my preference for smaller phones, you can sign me up for one of these. Finally, what sounds like a phone without compromises.

    Likely no ... I think I'm done with Samsung phones for at least this year (but hey don't rule it out - you know me lol).

    will see ha

    There's always something special around the corner. Do love the HTC one design. I would ever be tempted by big phones. Honestly this m8 prime would tempt me.. Even though I'm Note mad.

    I would have upgraded from my M7 if the M8 had a better camera.

    As everyone else is saying, HTC makes a great phone and if they got rid of that awful camera it would have been a grand slam the last two iterations. Sure they could always improve the screen and such but for most that camera was and Is the real deal breaker.

    I read rumors saying the two cameras on the back will be 13MP and 5MP = 18MP. If so, I'd be fine with that.

    I view the large size as a compromise too, but it does sure look great!
    I want htc to succeed, they are doing well lately imo

    I don't understand why they can't slim down the bezels at the top and bottom of the screens.. at 5.5", phones going to be huge.
