HTC One E8 review - Pocket-lint

 

-

Powerful handset, battery life is good, display is great, sound quality unsurpassed, refined software experience

Camera performance is average, tactile finish rubbing off is disappointing, lacks the M8's wow factor and premium feel

There are a number of areas where the HTC One E8 fails to live up to the M8 experience. But given the reduced price that is to be expected, so it's difficult to see the E8 as doing anything but delivering on its aims.

HTC One E8 review

 

The plastic twin to the all-conquering M8

UI still impressive ; Powerful innards

Slippy as can be ; Camera too generic ; Too light compared to impressive M8

The HTC One E8 is the phone I never thought I'd see. Given HTC's big push into making design the most important element of its flagship One M8 phone, why lose it?

M8 vs E8: You're wasting your money on the HTC One M8

 

Until we have an exact UK price for the HTC One E8 it's a little difficult to make any firm conclusions. However, if we are to believe that it will come in with a mid-range price tag - say, no more than £300 - it's very difficult to justify the extra...

Обзор смартфона HTC One E8

 

Бюджетная версия HTС One M8 в пластиковом корпусе, но с 13 МП камерой.

К качеству передачи речи нет никаких претензий, вы и ваш собеседник отлично друг друга слышите. Кстати, благодаря тому, что «разговорная» SIM-карта обычно установлена в слот 2G Only, вы значительно реже теряете сеть, чем обычно.

If you like the One (M8) but have found the price a bit too unattractive, the more affordable One (E8) may be what y0u're looking for.

No release date has been announced for HTC One E8 in the UK, but if you import the E8 in single or dual-SIM versions from abroad, you will be getting a great smartphone at a little bit of a knock-down price.

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 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...

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 ( 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...

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...
