HTC One M8 User Thread

So far yes, now of course the n5 is still king of lte connectivity but I was pretty impressed with my One Max.  That was a lot better than the One(m7) but the Max was still about 5db or so worse than the n5.  The M8 seems to be similar to the max, maybe even slightly better which is great.  

 

Don't be a tease, give us more!

 

I really depend on the n5 reception. Would love to know how LTE does vs. The n5.

The n5,is just a monster when it comes to lte performance. So far from what I can tell the m8 is ever so slightly better than the one max but it ain't no n5,but it gets the job done. As far as the device itself though, I am loving it. It's definitely worth a look if you are even remotely interested.

So basically what I collected out of the impressions of the m8.

•It has good rf performance, similar to the g2/one max but not like the n5.

•It is probably the highest quality/best built phone to date.

•Its super loud(maybe the loudest mobile device yet?).

 

Did I miss anything important, or is there something else you'd tell someone to persuade them to buy it?

Holy cow the speakers are amazing. You cannot tell it's coming from a phone.

 

Cousin came over to show it off. I'm officially jealous.

Got to play with the gold One tonight. Mostly just played around with the camera so far. It is definitely a fun camera. Looking forward to spending tomorrow with it.

Nope. The dates keep getting moved. As of now it looks like Sprint will not be available in store until 4/10. I would not be surprised if that changed again.

Does the phone out of the box have the tri-band support or does it have to be updated like the Nexus 5 cause I am still waiting for this update!

It's ready to go. Every phone released this year, and here on out, will be Spark enabled. The n5 is the only device that is capable, but not officially supported without the upgrade. It's like the black sheep of Sprint's phone family.

Yes, The "Black Sheep" with the best RF LTE  performance.

I was only referring to it being released 5 months ago and still not being spark supported. It's a great phone that is basically on the back burner.

I see. But, If I understand correctly, it can still connect to all of Sprint's bands, and better than most.

Yes, it does.  I had the Spark/Wal-Mart icon in the notification bar the first time I booted it up.  Strangely, there is no LTE here at my office.

I transferred everything from our 2 EVO LTE phones to the New Ones using HTC software.  Looks like everything transferred okay for contacts, apps, photos, etc. except some Game Data on the wife's phone.  Anyone know how to get the data for a game transferred?  She does not want to start over and loose her 2 years worth the progress.

Does the debug or data menu allow you to switch LTE band priorities and have the LTE timeout period to edit?

I'm curious as well. This will likely be my first tri-band device and I would love that kind of granular control over its connectivity. Is it something easily selectable from the engineering screen, or do you have to edit the priorities in the PRL like you do on the G2 (from what I understand)?

 

Hopefully, I'll have one in a couple weeks when I'm satisfied that there are no build quality issues. I'm right by a cluster of 800MHz LTE towers by Chicago so I can't wait to try those out!

If he is using the htc software to transfer everything then more than likely he and his wife's phone isn't rooted.

You are correct theMuffinman our phones new or old are not rooted.

Since you are not rooted there is an app on the playstore called hellium.  Give that a shot and see if it works for you.

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
