Wow. Big improvement. My phone silky and very fast. Be sure to have a fully charged battery and a lot time. It will take over an hour and about 40% of your battery.

I just turned on my M8 for the first time in months and I go the update to Marshmallow. I honestly forgot how good this phone is.

 

Question: Can I switch my SIM from my current phone to my M8 and use it or is there a while process. Just curious because I might want to switch phones occasionally.

I think you can use the SIM, you just have to type all the numbers in online when you do the swap. That's if it is the same kind of SIM. There are so many types I forget which ones belong to which devices.

Yeah, that's not exactly an uncommon thing I had a family member who had an M8 that I ended up having to replace the charging port on myself because I couldn't find anyone that would do it for any sort of reasonable amount. In the end it turned out not to be too bad of a process, the hardest part was making sure I was getting the part with the correct connections which ended up costing like $10 on Amazon.

I had to replace my charging port and my brothers. It's a pretty easy process and pretty cheap. I got the replacement part on eBay for like $7. Just look on eBay or Amazon for "htc one m8 charging port" and you'll find what you need.

I've had great luck with my HTC One M8 that I ordered when it was first released two years ago.

 

I've recently noticed a problem where the M8 shuts down like the battery is dead, even though the battery indicator is showing something like 20% charge remaining.  This has happened a few times recently, and every time the indicated battery level is 20-25%.

 

So, either the battery indicator is way off, or the battery is shot and is dead even when there is 20% charge remaining.

 

If it's just that the battery indicator is off, is there a way to reset it or otherwise make it more accurately reflect the true battery charge level?

 

Thank you!!

Battery is likely crapping out after two years or so. Mine began doing the same when it was approaching the two year mark. Usually a factory reset might help bit but otherwise the phone might be on its last legs.

Wow, really?  Batteries are only good for (barely) two years?  I believe you, but I'm just surprised that they puke that fast.  I thought these Lithium ion batteries were supposed to have longer life.

The sprint store can replace the batteries on these devices

I had the same thing happen a couple months ago. I tried everything. Clearing battery stats in recovery, new rom, new kernel, everything. I eventually replaced the battery with one I got on eBay and the new one worked perfectly. It's the battery crapping out unfortunately

Just follow any instructions for a screen replacement. It's the exact same, you just don't have to go as far as they do for the screen

Mine was doing it at 25%-30% depending on what I was doing. It would just die.

Did replacing the battery fix the problem?  I just want to make sure it's actually the battery and not something else before deciding to replace the battery.

    • I've had my Unlocked Coral Blue GS8+ since end of July and it's still going strong.  No software issues or weird shenanigans.  I attribute a lot of that to being on the Unlocked 955U1 firmware.  I still kept my 935U Galaxy S7 Edge and it too is going strong on the Unlocked firmware.   I think most of these issues are coming from Sprint messing with the ROM too much with their bloat and other crap. The only issue I've had so far was when Google updated their Google app, my battery began to drain a lot faster - ~5%/hr instead of the normal ~2%/hr.  A simple reboot took care of that.  Google is still my NUMBER ONE enemy for battery life.  I"m hoping Oreo will take care of Google.
    • FFS.      Now the power supply for our MB has seemingly failed.  When I first plugged it in, I thought the power supply seemed overly ‘noisy’ in that it made a constant hiss/buzz.  Woke up this morning to 2 bars of 1x, and the MB indicated it needed to be plugged in.  Receptacle tested fine.  Power Supply no longer makes any noise and smells a little suspect so Sprint is sending a replacement.  
    • you should get the phone! it has a amazing camera and the battery life ins phenominal!
    • I'm thinking they've closed off residential requests for now until they fill some of the orders. I know the link is around here somewhere, Google Sprint magic box, or try sprint.com/magicbox Currently, last I heard, it was business only...
