Welcome to the Refreshed XDA Portal!
A new year, a new Portal Admin, and now a new look to our Portal to round it all out! This refresh, several months in the making, is tuned for speed. It integrates more white space than the previous design as to provide a cleaner, more open feel. We now have better control over filtering content categories and features. Best of all, the Portal acts as a true portal by letting you login to the widget on the right and see your subscribed forums, threads, plus a PM preview box, without having to go into the forums. Brilliant! If it doesn’t work right away for you, make sure you log out of the forums and log back in, then go back to the Portal. Hopefully this new widget encourages you to make the Portal a hub of your XDA activity.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be making the new design even better with more features and further increases in performance. And of course, bugs do happen despite our testing. If you find any bugs, make us aware of them in the Portal Refresh Bug Report and Feature Request thread.

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.

So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
