htc is rising up a set of specification which they r offering is pretty decent nd no offens to samsung fans it worth buying remember the GS5 was launched in india at the price of 50k+ with its shitty exynos chipset but htc one e8 is carring the flagship spec which the m8 carries but costs just 35k .the one m8 performence was super just hope that htc optimezes the e8 too then it will kick samsung's ass cz htc provides good polycarbonate plastic body rather than ssamsung's shitty cheap plastic shells and on top of that its look way more beautifull than samsung's soap like structure
Very High Price for these Specs...Samsung Galxy S5 is available @ 34000/- in india. so not any chance of buying HTC E8 @ 34000/-.
First , Htc should research indian market pricing of cometitive phones...
Eagle Horn, 11 Jul 2014Fingerprint sensor, IP 67 Certification, Removable 200 mah extra battery, Better camera with i... morethough price of one e8 is quite high, still its better than galaxy s5 anytime!
S5's fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor are just of no actual use, they are just gimmicks, there is no Snapdragon 801, no stereo speakers and fake punchy colour reproducing Amoled, no LTE and Samsung phones lags due to its overbearing Touchwiz UI !
The only thing nice about S5 is that its waterproof. And though Removable battery is an added advantage, it hardly matters anymore.
Since price of both phones are same, anyone should go for E8 rather than S5. Though its a personal choice
After a long wait i wil go for htc desire 816 bczzz of its high price rate than expcted
Fingerprint sensor, IP 67 Certification, Removable 200 mah extra battery, Better camera with image stabilization and around 1K less than E8....that Your Samsung S-5 Guys....No need for E8 in this price range....better go for S-5
never get update like disease of htc..they never give update even its a flag ship phone but its not so what you except better go with s5 in same range...
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2014It's launched for 34.i don't think the price is on par. Yeah price is not at all par :/
Looks like LTE bands available in India (atleast airtel) are not supported in E8
E8 only supports bands 3 & 7 in FDD (as per HTC website)
Airtel 4g operates on Band 40 in TDD.
Finalay htc one e8 launch in India,
price is around 34900rs will be available upto end of july & it have protection of cornilla glass3.
avi.rr, 11 Jul 2014Htc launched e8 in india @34999..will be available in end of july.No one is going to Buy this mobile with this much price better to go for Desire 816.
avi.rr, 11 Jul 2014Htc launched e8 in india @34999..will be available in end of july.Comes with gorilla glass 3 too pricey at Rs.34900/- in India.
hTC is dumb. Launching this phone for ₹35,990 in India. It's going to lose out on customers because of this idiotic pricing. One would rather pay a few extra grands and get the Z2, M8 or pay 2k extra for the Find 7
vigeen, 10 Jul 2014Since this is not a global version this would of low quality in terms of built and performsnce.Like S5 LTE is a low quality product because it doesn't have global release, stupid.
