Almost five months after releasing the Android-based One (M8), HTC is seemingly getting ready to introduce a Windows Phone version of the handset. Allegedly called HTC One (M8) for Windows, the smartphone could be announced on August 19, and Verizon might be the first carrier to offer it. Apart from running Windows Phone 8.1, the new handset doesn’t seem to be too different from the Android model, having a similar design, and probably similar hardware specs, too.Not long after we saw the first render showing the One (M8) for Windows, we ran a poll asking you to choose between it and the One (M8) that runs Android. The exact question was: which of the two HTC smartphones do you think is better? We’re not sure how this happened, but the Windows Phone version received 3,156 votes (54.98%), while the Android variant only got 2,584 votes (45.02%). So it looks like a lot of people really like the idea of a Microsoft-endorsed M8. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that … [Read more...] about Poll results: Would you prefer an HTC One (M8) running Android, or Windows Phone 8.1?

Never knew how many Window fans are on PA lol, anyways I doubt the Windows version will have more sales than the Android one. posted on 06 Aug 2014, 00:01 18 2.

Busyboy (unregistered) I doubt MS would really waste their time on a small phone website to vote for the Windows version. I'm sure they have more important things to with their time. 7. AfterShock (Posts: 3698; Member since: 02 Nov 2012) True, but I wouldn't doubt a WP forum posting a sticky telling mbrs to vote in this poll. 8. GreekGeek (Posts: 1276; Member since: 22 Mar 2014) Dude, where have you been? 12. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3576; Member since: 06 Jul 2013) I agree!!! iOS users do tend to have good taste, if … [Read more...] about Comments for : Poll results: Would you prefer an HTC One (M8) running Android, or Windows Phone 8.1?

I don't know how can you compare beauty like M8 to plastic Dustbin like s5. Grow up get a life . 149. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10457; Member since: 14 May 2012) I actually prefer the S5 in the hand over the M8. Easier to hold and never had a fear of the S5 dropping like I have with my M8. 151. pulkit1 (Posts: 354; Member since: 03 Jul 2014) lol. i am sorry i had to stoop to his level i don't have any thing against plastic phones or s5 i just hate when he refers m8 as tin can . I know plastic is more comfortable to hold but the feel of metal almost justifies the high cost of todays flagships . And if … [Read more...] about Comments for : Poll: Would you prefer an HTC One (M8) running Android, or Windows Phone 8.1?
Yesterday, Verizon inadvertently posted a render that showed HTC’s very first Windows Phone 8.1 handset. Expected to be called "One (M8) for Windows", the device obviously resembles the Android-based HTC One (M8). In fact, it looks like it’s offering pretty much the same hardware. Thus, this Microsoft-endorsed smartphone seems to come with the same specs that we can find on the One (M8) with Android: a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, BoomSound speakers, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a Duo camera on the back. HTC might announce the "One (M8) for Windows" later this month, on August 19. The handset will probably not be exclusive to Verizon, and should be released in Europe, too.The One (M8) that runs Android currently costs around $600 off-contract. We are expecting the Windows Phone 8.1 model to have a similar price, and we’re curious to know which of the two One (M8) variants appeal most to our readers. … [Read more...] about Poll: Would you prefer an HTC One (M8) running Android, or Windows Phone 8.1?
