Trying to debate whether I want to get an HTC One M8, or pay to have the charger port on my 2 week old S4 (eBay, I can return it but within a week so not much time to decide!) fixed for about $40. I paid $313 for it new in box. What would you do? Any experience w/ the HTC One M8? Verizon has it on sale for $99 w/ 2 yr contract, I am currently on T mobile pre-paid, but have been having issues w/ coverage for a LONG time, we are in a very small town, & word on the street is that Verizon has better coverage here.
TIA

Coverage is more important than cost. Go with Verizon or ATT.

I have heard good things about the HTC

I would, but Verizon told me I can't use my "unlocked" S4 on their network. Guess I am returning the S4.

T-Mobile and ATT use GSM technology. Verizon uses CDMA. So if your phone is unlocked and works on t-Moble it won't work on the Verizon network. It should work on ATT.

I would recommend HTC M8 because eventually that s4 is going to stop working, and you will have to get a new phone. Yes, I am aware that you just got the phone not too long, but s4 is really bad with the battery drainage.

M8 hands down over the S4. If it were M8 vs S5, they are pretty much equal.

Galaxy S 6 and HTC M9 are being announced this Sunday! nerdgasm

Amazon has LG 3G and HTC One M8 for a penny. AT&T though.
