M8 still remain the best Android phone when it comes to performance. I own the the M8 and note 4 Octa and I'm thinking to sell it cause M8 beats note 4 in every single task except the keyboard and camera way better on note 4.
I have both iphones and m8. If you are in a hurry, switching apps using the multitask touch button and the glance all tiles is much faster than apple's retarded home button and limited view. Its really frustrating as double clicking home button can end up voice control and i cant switch it off quickly. This is my true life experience.
I have the M8.. but damn, never noticed it before.. but there are basically no eye pleasing animations at all when opening apps on the M8 🙁 Not that it matters.. but sometimes, for example for twitter.. that animation is great. Might slow down the phone though..
I big appreciation for HTC the company has seen profit first time in many years thanks to HTC m8 a device which not ony looks good but performs better and it has been launched 6 months before iphone 6 and still beating in almost every tasks. The M8 comes by default with Dalvik mode in developer settings if you change to ART(android runtime ) mode it will open apps even more quicker and also web browser. still iphone 6 is a good phone but M8 is a powerful beast.
