Leading up to announcement day, HTC One M8 leaks typically showed off the Gunmetal Gray version of the device. This version has also held much of the spotlight since. But this darker, streaked variant isn't inherently an improvement (these things are subjective, after all), and there are many people who would probably prefer the shiny, silver look of the original. Well, said version of the HTC One M8 is now available from AT&T.

Before now, AT&T only offered the HTC One M8 in Gunmetal Gray, though it did say on launch day that the Glacial Silver version was coming soon. Apparently, soon means today. Either way you go, the device will cost $639.99 without a contract or $199.99 with one. Just put on some gloves beforehand, because glacial or not, that metal body gets cold.

    I got this one from VZW, but truthfully...if you're going to have a case on it, it doesn't really matter. And without one the phone is extremely slick to hold, so be careful.

      I personally got a wrap from slickwraps and that added a ton of texture and scratch resistance to the phone. Won't help if I drop it, but I'll take my chances. I got the white carbon fiber, looks awesome.

        I got a cheap case from Amazon, but that's my point...if you can't see the phone itself, other than the top and bottom where the speakers are, why worry about which color phone to get? :P

          Im more of a naked guy myself, so how a phone looks is a big factor to me. Which is why I am a fan of wraps, doesn't add size, but matches any personal style. After having an M7 in the silver, and now an M8 in Gunmetal, I feel the gunmetal is a much nicer color.

            Let's leave your dressing habits out of this, shall we?

            After getting a case for my GNex that had a built-in kickstand, and using the CRAP out of it, I can't go back to no kickstand anymore. So, a full case is necessary for me. :( The M8 looks great without anything on it, and I would love to use it "naked", but between the no kickstand issue, and the slickness of the phone itself, I just can't. But hey, that's just my opinion, and opinion's are like buttholes, everyone's got one.

      I am agree with you Steve Freeman as you are right in some extent but there are lots of others things that should be taken into consideration while looking for a high-end device. I went through a post http://www.cheapmonthlymobile.co.uk/htc-mobile-phones/htconem8silvermobilephone.asp#reviews and came to know about stunning features enabled device called HTC One M8.
