If you've been eyeing on the HTC One M8, but were put off with the premium price tag, the One E8 is for you. It carries all the features of the former in a non-metallic body, and arrives with a significantly low price tag. However, it trades off the One M8's UltraPixel camera for a more conventional 13-megapixel rear snapper.

Even in the shadows of its sibling, the One (E8) manages to have its own distinct style and offers flagship-level specs.Aug 29 2014 By Nitansh Rastogi
At first, the idea of doing away with the biggest USP of the HTC One (M8) – its 90 percent uber-premium metallic body – and replacing it with a polycarbonate shell felt absurd, but our experience with the E8 begs to differ. Even though it`s not as stylish as its sibling, it manages to have its own distinct identity and offers the same flagship-level specs that power the M8. Moreover, while HTC might have stolen a chapter from Samsung’s playbook, it has played its cards cleverly
Hi everyone ,This my first review ,nE8 is a phone I was very eager to get my hands on , I owned a nexus 5 before that and I loved stock android and not a fan of the skins that other manufactures put on top of it and make it slow ...nI read in many reviews that e8 has sense 6 which is a very nice skin , it is very fast , fluid , simple and absolutely zero lag ... And after using it for days I'm saying , yes it is all true ...nThe hardware ;The feel is really good , a bit tall but not An issue at all , I love it .nThe display is very good , good viewing angles and can be used under direct sunlight ..nThe boom sound speakers are the best , really the best , blows away all the rest .nIt's like the good old days when you crank up the volume , you really enjoy the loud music and unlike the modern phones where only one person can hear the music when it's next to him :D nCamera is not as good as you would expect , it is not bad either ,, it's average , but most people will be satisfied with the results if they don't expect spectacular photos ..the white balance seems to the problem area , hope it's a software issue and gets sorted out,.nOne thing all the smart phones these days lack is good battery life .. E8 has good battery life , can use for one whole day and in the night you'll have. 20% to spare ..nThe phone is very fast , and no heating issues at all...nAlthough I'm not a heavy gamer .nA very good all rounder , i got it for 33750 .. I must say its a very good deal .nThe fastest processor , dual sim , descent cam , very good battery life and solid build quality. Go ahead and buy , you will not regret it . The speakers are just awesome .nThe extreme power saving mode can really help your phone go for 15 hours at least , after it reaches 10 % battery , and really will help a lot of people :)
Let me start by saying that this is the HTC One M8 in a polycarbonate shell instead of Aluminium, with a better camera and superior battery performance. Why? Because the camera is plain better than the UltraPixel gimmick that HTC had gone with earlier and the battery performs better for reasons unknown. Only a fool would pass on this and buy a Moto X 2014 instead (18,000 to replace a broken screen on the Moto X 2014, really?). This phone blows the competition out of the water.nnI have been using it for 15 days now as a daily driver and this device has NOT disappointed. That being said, it isn't perfect and has some issues to iron out, which will be done one the Lollipop update comes out in Q1 2015. nAlso, the best part about this phone was that it supports CDMA and GSM (HSPA and LTE) in the first slot and GSM (2G) in the second. The CDMA capability isn't documented anywhere for some reason. Not even on HTC's website. The version they sell here in India is the M8sd, the other dual SIM model is a GSM only device and is exclusive to China. nnPros:n + Great cameran + All day long battery; I am getting 24 hours of standby including my sleep hours and it still remains with 20% juice. Oh and I talk on the phone for 6 hours daily.n + Support for ART. I think everyone should enable it in the "Developer" settings. This improved my battery tremendously.n + SDCard support; very few devices come with this nowadays and you need to pay crazy amounts for more storage. Not with this phone, though. It supports SDCards upto 128GB because of the exFAT filesystem compatibility.n + Great sound; HTC may have lost the BEATS branding which was lame anyway, but their sound is still kick-ass!n + Sense is probably the best Android customisation; way better than Xperia and TouchWiz.n + Dual SIM with CDMA support in Slot 1. This is truly a world phone.n + Feels great in the hand because of the design.n + Notification lights; I was using an iPhone before this, so I am excited about this. Sorry.n + Speed and performance; goes without saying but the performance is flawless and there is no lag in the device at all.n + Not prone to dents like its metallic brother, the M8; it is polycarbonate and doesn't dent at all. nnCons:n - SDcard not writable with Filemanagers right now; this is more of a KitKat limitation though but HTC has not supplied with a filemanager that can do it either. This will be sorted out in the Lollipop update that comes out in Q1 2015.n - Camera navigation is a little slow at times, very rarely but it happens, so I am putting it down as a con.n - Slower updates when compared to the M8.n - No developer love; No CyanogenMod, MIUI, Paranoid Android for this yet. Hardly any activity on XDA-Developers forum either.n - Lack of tools availability; Rom Update utilities aren't supplied by HTC to restore to factory if something goes seriously wrong. You need to visit the service centre.n - Bezel-less design seems prone to screen cracks on a falln - Lack of accessories; the M8 cases do not fit eithern - LTE options disabled as of now. Though they will be enabled in the Lollipop update.n - Too many versions globally to call it a flagship model. There's M8sw, M8ss, M8sd, M8sx, you''' go crazy.n - Very less information available on this device. Nowhere on the box or HTC's website, does it say that it supports CDMA as well as GSM, which is weird.n - Charger supplied sucks. 1A and slow as hell.n nSo, I have been using it with Reliance CDMA and it works perfectly. Even on EvDO, it gives me great battery life. I can say that I am satisfied with the device. Just hope the Lollipop update comes quickly.
