I don't get this, it has the same specs as the one m8, has a better camera than the one m8, has one more sim card than the one m8, they switch to polycarbonate so the people can afford a flagship spec device, the price for a cheaper build material with a much better camera and an extra sim slot is 10k cheaper! Why the hate? The s5 exynos is a cheap processor and for 35k it doesn't last long either... Htc seems better, my honest opinion

to all who say samsung galaxy s5 is a lot better option at 35k. those online websites sells defective peices rejected from the company.they just repair it and sell it. so if you are thinking to buy form such a website, you all are idiots.

Never expected that the price would cross 30K. All mobile gadget websites were showing 27k as the expected price. Highly disappointed.

Its too high for this phone. Even-though, it has some high end specs Rs. 34,900/- is not correct for this model. HTC may compare it with Samsung Galaxy S5 don't forget that it has finger print sensor, heart rate sensor, 16 MP iso-cell lens and also USB 3.0 and other few better options. When it was released in China it was priced at 2999 Yuan which translates to Rs. 29,000/-. If it is for Rs. 29,999/- then it would be a nice price, I hope so. Think once again HTC.

The only minor complaint that I have with MI3 is non-removable battery and non-expandable memory but they are nothing compared to the specs being offered at the price it sells

I thought E8 would be around 30k. 35k is too much for this one. what kind of strategy is this ?. if taxes are high you should have think an alternative like selling the mobile through e-commerce site. so that it will reduce branding cost and store maintainance cost etc. I don't know where HTC is heading to.
you can't teach old dogs new tricks. better learn from motorola
