Would you get the Samsung Galaxy S5 or HTC One (M8)?

The HTC One (M8) has made a big splash today, but would you pick one up instead of a Samsung Galaxy S5?

We've spent a week with the HTC One (M8), and have a few preliminary thoughts in our review, but what do you guys make from what you've seen? In a real purchasing scenario, what's the bottom line: would you pick up the new M8, or would the Samsung Galaxy S5 win you over? Odds are this is a real decision a lot of folks are going to have to make over the next year or so, and we want to see what the popular opinion is. No, "eh, I don't think I'll get either," or "can't I have both lol?" Pick your side, and let's see how this epic battle pans out.

We'll follow up in a couple of days summing up the results, but in the meantime, feel free to work out all your thoughts in the comments. We're eager to hear which factors weigh most heavily on your decisions. Maybe that camera on the M8 is a dealbreaker, but ooh, dat build quality. Discuss!
