    I'm planning on getting a new phone for uni and I'm stuck between HTC One M8 or waiting for the iPhone 6 to be released. I prefer the HTC One M8 in nearly every way, but I have a feeling that an iPhone would work better with a Mac. Would I have an issue with compatibility for example, syncing music, documents etc. with an iPhone? I generally love the idea of all devices working together e.g. with an iCloud platform built into both OS etc. and with their new features like being able to answer phone calls on your Mac if you have an iPhone would be quite useful.

    I'm really stuck on this decision and was wondering which phone people would recommend if you have a mac!

    iPhone works really well with a Mac. If you use Safari, you can share favourites and tabs between the two.
    I'm not sure if you can answer calls on your mac, but I think they're updating this so you can? I think you should research this first!

    PS I think it would be the iPhone 5s this year and then 6 next, so you might be waiting 2 years.
