If the Sony z4 is the monster it's supposed to be, I will switch carriers because I know Verizon will screw it up.

htc's release vs samsung's release 

HTC wins, and this is why.

Samsung has NOT changed. HOWEVER, they made a radical APPLE'ish change by using their own processors and own equipment in their work.  This totally reduces their development costs, and they can roll software quite a bit faster.  One release, for their flagship.  

With that:
I still like the htc device.  It is a serious break from the norm what people have considered the norm, of which samsung has established itself well.  HTC has put a monster device together, killed by "small stuff" like the camera, a button or two. 
however --
The formula works for HTC.  the m8 is a very good device.

The M9
They did right with the camera, the button from the top to the side, that screen was really good, and I think they need to stick with really good.  People complain about the 'black bar' but would you rather have carrier logo on the front?

If I were in the business of buying another phone, I really would be after the HTC device vs. Samsung.  It's the NOT norm that makes people love android.

I still don't like the iPhone -- but I had to get one, despite my druthers...

I have my reasons -- 

1)  I realize that I've always compared apples to oranges with iPhone and Android...and the phone race is pretty much over.  Android won with Jelly Bean and KitKat.  EVERYONE is playing catchup.  Android is more capable than iPhone in every way from IR blasters to mini HDMI, it's a more capable platform in general.  iOS is catching up.

2) What kills android is Vendors AND Carriers.  Their software ALL is bad.  (I do like verzion messages.  It is really good software, it's a release or two from being great). When Carrier software is bad, it is bad, it goes the way of the droid turbo/Note 4 -- Random reboots and slow updates of a fabulous device.  The One M8 is flat awesome, and I didn't experience many problems with it that were carrier related, outside of 'ALL the SOFTWARE NOT THERE'! (WTF verizon, the file manager, really?)  With iPhone, the experience is controlled by apple, not opened but controlled by apple, and it is OK, not good, but OK.

3) The experience with a PC:  If you are a Mac User, you are SOL with Android.  The only interface really sucks. and HTC gave a good go with their software.  If they clean it up and allow people to manage the device with things going into weird places (music path MATCHES the music path on your computer).  Pictures (SAME thing), it can be vastly improved.  Don't eve try with a Samsung device and motorola just gave up. iTunes is horrible software.  Flat out horrible and Apple won't allow ANYTHING else to officially manage the device.  I mean really, to manage your iPhone, you have to use the SAME computer every time.  Open up the trust relationship within iPhone.  This could be worth it for iPhone users.

3) After messing with the iPhone 6 Plus for a bit, comparing it to other offerings from Android, There is still some stuff that will tick you right off:

The back button, there isn't one that's in a consistent place. if apple is complaining about the button on the Galaxy devices, The win for Samsung is 'it's a back button and menu button' -- really simple.  Where it's consistent on Android, it's like a lunchmeat day in elementary school, really don't know what you are gonna get.

'immersion' android did it right, Apple simply has to copy to avoid the atrocity they messed up here, where it's just inconsistent.
  
8.1.3 has a LOT of network drops. So does Android.  At least in Android you know, when you have a network hiccup, your signal drops and comes back and you can LOOK and See it.  You just can't with iPhone.

iMessage is cool -- however, if everyone does NOT have iMessage in a group message, it relegates to just plain ole MMS.  This is a bear for Verizon users as you have to have LTE voice and data on.  On Verizon, it is just NOT good.  REALLY dulls the experience.  While Hangouts is AWESOME on android and iOS, this VERY same thing can be done with Android.  Google Voice is preventing that.

if you turn on EVERYTHING that is network related, IPhone is HUNGRY for data.  To manage that, it is just as dumb as android.  and it isn't a simple interface on both platforms.  With both being totally different, they both are totally stupid.

 If every android vendor made their devices bare bones, then there would be no differences in devices...that wouldn't be fun.  But let us enable or disable the interfaces that are offered.  With iPhone, we know there is one interface.  After all it's still just a Phone.  With Android, it's a totally different platform.  THAT's where the difference is.  With Android, anyone can do most of their computing with just their phone.  With iPhone, having a computer makes the experience easier and you can do a lot more computing vs. previous releases of iOS.

Nuts and Bolts:
android vendors won't change their interfaces, that's why they exist --  HTC had a VERY good idea to not be to aggressive about the skin it put on, but it works.  Motorola did ABSOLUTELY RIGHT by minimally touching it and it's a very good experience.  If samsung gets off their high horse and does the same, Android would be good on their platform offering again.  Samsung will never do it.  ( The Note 4 is a wonderful device. period, point blank, end of story. there is some cleanup in the interface that needs to occur, but overall, a wonderful experience.)

As for android -- Verizon kills the experience.  Skipping the Note 4, the droid turbo is a VERY good device.  HOWEVER, because of it's existence, the Nexus 6 will be officially delayed so that they won't cannibalize the sales of their sponsored device.  THIS plus that thing just keeps restarting for no apparent reason, plus Verizon's REALLY long approval process and stringent device requirements will clearly drive you from Android and the lesser known, but BIG vendors (Huwaei, Xiaomi, TCL, Lenovo) all companies that are moving devices MUCH faster than the likes of LG and HTC.  Verizon makes so much money they won't change very much so opening the network up to OTHER vendors that are not a premier and partner -- but they sell this ellypsis 7 and other garbage.  

So i'll use this iPhone and won't buy a subsidized phone ever again.
