HTC One E8 Smartphone Review

 

Now in plastic as well. The One M8 was a very successful high-end device for HTC. Now, the Android device with a curved metal chassis is also available with a plastic case and high-resolution camera. We look at the changes and tell you if the One E8 is...

A lot of performance, Good build quality, Grippy case, Good display, Camera takes pictures with many details, Great speakers, Comprehensive software, Energy-saving mode, Precise touchscreen

Case can be pushed in, Keyboard crowded ..., ... and no other languages other than English, Picture app "Zoe" not yet working

More performance for less money – the One E8 is definitely an interesting alternative if you like the plastic case. It inherited many good features from the One M8 as well as the smaller HTC One Mini 2, which was actually better than the One M8 in some...

HTC One E8 (Sprint)

 

The HTC One E8 for Sprint doesn't wow with its plastic design, but it delivers flagship features and performance at a midrange price.

Excellent 1080p LCD. Fast Snapdragon 801 processor. Top-notch front-facing speakers.

Camera struggles in low light. Plastic build.

Camera and Conclusions HTC loses the 4-megapixel, or UltraPixel, camera in favor of a more traditional 13-megapixel sensor for the E8. I understand the advantages of having a larger sensor, but compared with every other flagship phone, the M8 fell...

HTC One E8 ( white)

 

With an off-contract price of S$698 in Singapore -- which converts to roughly $560, £330, or AU$600 -- the E8 isn't cheap. For its price, however, bear in mind the phone has the performance chops to compete with blockbuster devices such as the Samsung...

The HTC One E8 packs top-end hardware with a bright and vibrant display. It also runs the latest version of HTC's Sense UI and has most of the features of the flagship One M8.

The phone lacks what made the One M8 unique -- its dual-camera system -- and doesn't really outshine cheaper devices in the features department.

The One E8 offers the high-end HTC experience in glossy colors and a plastic case, but without a unique selling point, there's little reason to buy this expensive device.

HTC One E8 review

 

Very similar in design to this year's HTC One M8 , the One E8 is a plastic version of the flagship metallic phone. Originally destined for China, the E8 has started to pop up in other Asian countries like India, Singapore and Taiwan. HTC has yet to...

HTC One (E8) review: Android’s iPhone 5C is here

 

The HTC One (M8) is one of the better Android handsets available. For many, it's the aluminum shell that takes the cake. What happens when you strip it away and add plastic, though? Is the device still a winner? The HTC One (E8) is trying to answer...

HTC took a page from Apple’s playbook — they just changed it up a bit. The plastic build is going to cost less, and offer a touch less as well. The camera is dated, but the rest of the spec sheet is copied from the newer One. HTC is basically taking...

HTC One (E8) review: Traveling light

 

What if you stripped the HTC One (M8) of the metal armor it's so proud of. Imagine replacing it for plastic. Sounds like the worst thing that could happen to the top model of a struggling company. The HTC One (E8) will heartily disagree. If anything is...

The HTC One series has at least one feature it can hang its hat on - premium design. This became absolutely critical with the M8, as the scorching hot flagship was outclassed by its competitors in many other areas - performance and camera being the...

HTC One E8 Review

 

With the One E8 – a One M8 re-imagined in plastic – HTC is ready to reign war on its competitors by offering flagship specs at a mid-tier price point...

This is a very attractive device ; The screen is visible even under direct sunlight ; Minimalist, stylish, and lag-free interface ; The front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers are excellent

Color versions with glossy finish are a fingerprint magnet ; The camera isn't rock-solid with its performance ; Call quality leaves something to be desired ; Screen is blueish

Love the HTC One M8's style, but can't quite afford its price tag? The One E8 is probably what you're looking for. With the exception of its polycarbonate shell, the One E8 is every bit the device we've all come to appreciate and respect.

Review: HTC One (E8) for Sprint

 

The plastic version of HTC's venerable One handset is almost as good as the metal version. Almost, but not quite. Here is Phone Scoop's full report about this Android smartphone for Sprint.

HTC One E8 review

 

The HTC One M8 is a beauty, but what happens when you try to take this flagship smartphone and remove its metal housing? Enter the HTC One E8!

Still great build quality ; Bright, punchy and clear display ; Fast & responsive

Camera still not there ; Battery life is below industry best ; no IR blaster
