- If you drop the screen of HTC M8 in the first six months of purchase, HTC will repair it (i hope it replaces that) for FREE. You heard me.
HTC guarantees to keep the phone up to date with the latest version of Android for 24 months after launch. This is more than what Google guarantees for the Nexus phones (18 months).
However these two alluding offering from HTC didn't seem to impress reviewers. And for some it was not even worth mentioning.

While the hardware is nice, it’s not a major leap over the original HTC One. It has a bigger screen and a faster processor, and its dual-lens camera is sometimes useful, but there isn’t single hardware advancement that will push the industry forward.
Kevin C. Tofel, writing for GigaOm seemed pretty impressed (not heavily) with HTC M8. He writes:
In just a day’s worth of general use, I’m pretty impressed by what HTC has here. The HTC One M8 is put together nicely and offers good computing and wireless performance.
What i am excited about the phone is that it is equipped with 802.11ac on both 2.4 and 5 GHz.
At the time of writing this post, HTC M8 (32GB) was available at eBay for Rs 55K. If you ask me i would rather not buy it. You know what i am hinting to.
