  • Even the camera doesnt work well . I mean the picture quality is not good . I seriously hate my phone now!!!!!😭😭😭 uhhh the emojis

  • Hi, thanks for the article. It would be great if HTC could incorporate a row of numbers above the top row of the keyboard like the Samsung s6. It would eliminate the annoying need to go back and forth between the different key pad screens constantly. Thanks.

  • My HTC M8 downloaded the new update then started installing but, when the phone restarted it always goes to recovery mode and says no cw file found. I contacted HTC support and they said to wait 7-10 days for a solution if they can solve then il have to send my phone to the company which is about $100USD plus pay approximatel $250 USD which is what they charge for repairs. When i asked why should i pay for sometihing i did not do. they said its because my phone is not on warranty????????????? like wtf?

    I updated my M8 a few days ago and since that day, when I plus music with the music app, it stops automatically every 2min and 27 seconds or so... with every single tracks. Does anyone have the same problem?
    Thanks

  • I contacted htc support they told me do this and it works

    From the home screen, press and hold the Power and Volume up buttons for approximately 10 seconds until the device turns off.
    Release the Power and Volume up buttons and wait for the device to turn back on again.

    they dont know how it happened though

  • I have the exact same problem as listed below so I copied this verbatim "After having updated to 6.0 there was an update available for the lockscreen. As is standard I had a dialogue box asking if I wanted to restart my phone to finish the lockscreen update. However, after it restarted the screen doesn't work properly. There are two small horizontal bars at the very top and bottom of the screen which are lighter in colour that recognise touch inputs, however, the rest of the screen doesn't work at all. I can't do anything apart from pull the quick settings menu down from the top of the screen or swipe up to unlock the phone, bringing me to the password input "bit", to which I can't do anything because the screen doesn't recognise any input"

    Seriously has anyone been able to fix this yet I cannot use my phone at all and I have just recharged it. Did I also mention that there is no way to switch the phone off either?!

    Has anybody else had this problem/know how to fix it?

  • I have to agree with a previous comment, HTC seem to roll out the updates without putting much thought into them.
    To mention just two of the issues,
    1. The emojicons are very childlike and bear no resemblance to what appears when selected.
    2. The notification volume is now linked with the ringtone volume and this is very annoying and the symbols have changed for them 😬 oh great I found d right one 😂

    HTC admin, please revert to previous update.

    Ps If it ain't broke...

    My girlfriend owns the M8, we're in the Netherlands. We cannot get the update installed. It downloads, checks the zip, unzips it, restarts and then...we land in the boot menu where we find the following: "E: failed to verify whole-file signature" "E: signature verification failed" "installation aborted". After this we can only reboot. Any tips on getting the update working would be great. HTC is of no help so far.

    Sup guys, anyone have an issue with their IR blaster on a HTC M8?

  • This needs sorting out immediately. I can't use the internet app because the writing and the background are both white. The buttons for seeing all tabs and the one with the three vertical dots are also white so I basically have to guess where they are on the screen.

    Other minor problems are that the keyboard is white and the keys are enormous and I can't see what's on the rest of the screen. In addition, the Google emoticons are awful and childish looking, and have no bearing on what actually appears on screen.

  • HTC one M8. Just got android 6 update. Emoticons are rubbish. Also when you get an email or have something open in top bar. You used to be able to clear by pressing the x. Now you have to read email before it goes. Havnt worked out how to get rid of an open music player yet. Keyboard is rubbish.
    2 out of 10

  • HTC One M8 latest update as of 28th Jan 2016 issues:- Phone calls are very quiet and my volume is on full blast.
    The Weather and Time now look shit.
    When you go into phone it shows last called instead of call history.
    Keyboard is now white which again looks crap and cheap.
    I'm still looking to see what else is crap in this so called better version.
    What I would like to see improved is the bar you swipe along made bigger.
    I love my HTC and love the sound from it but the updates make it crap, why can't someone with common sense and lots of tests release updates when everything works?

  • My htc M8 updated last night, then this morning it updated again. now it says that it has no battery (even tho its charging) and it has a red triangle with a ! in the middle and will not do anything, wont let me restart it or anything. It occasionally restarts itself but then still has the red triangle and wont let me do anything. I have no idea what to do. Has this happened to anyone else?

    • Exactly the same is happening to my HTC M8. It is going through a cycle of turning on/off showing the start up/power off screen and then showing a red triangle with an exclamation mark through it. My phone has now been doing this for hours! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to fix it :)

  • Since updating Android system I now get persistent, numerous google services crash pop ups. Cannot get it to stop - frustrating
