Poll: How are your speaker grills on the HTC One M8?

HTC One M8 Grill alignmentWe’ve had a few people writing to us with tales of misaligned speaker grills on HTC’s new flagship product, the HTC One M8. With enough people complaining about it, this appears to not be an isolated incident, and we’re interested in knowing how your grills are lining up. Is this is a problem for you?

So far, we’ve heard from HTC that this is normal and doesn’t have any impact on performance, but the grills on some appear to be clogged and it looks strange if you’re looking at it closely – and this phone was designed to be looked at because it’s beautiful, not stared at because of a very odd looking grill placement.

Pocketables reader Howard M. took a good photo of his grill misalignment, which is the enlargeable clickable picture you see here.

So, Pocketables readers, take a good look at your grills on the HTC One M8 and let us know how yours are. We’ll post results in a week or so when we’ve got a definitive answer evident.
