Mr.crazyhawk flamez, 04 Aug 2014This is my opinion,go for it.its really a good phone.the HTC m8 is also good but depends with ... morethank you for your opinion. my budget is INR Rs. 35k which is the price of this phone here. however camera and lte are my priorities. also for a phone priced at this I expect usb on the go too! I dont understand why companies miss out on such important features! All this while I had been excitedly waiting for this phone, but now the reviews say that the cam is not par and no usb otg, unsurity of lte etc.
Working Element, 05 Aug 2014Seriously this phone priced at 35000 is not a best buy phone at that price point.It is offerin... moreWhich other phone at 35k gives you a dual led flash? Stop bashing this phone. It's very well priced. In China it's lesser because of less taxes. Currently at this price in Indian market, it's one of the best offerings.
Working Element, 05 Aug 2014Seriously this phone priced at 35000 is not a best buy phone at that price point.It is offerin... morePlease dont talk nonsense,i am an user of HTC butterfly from 2012 onwards and i paid over rs 36000 for this phone,but the quality,the power,the feel,the smoothness that HTC provides is still unmatched,no sony,samsung,or the miriad of indian brands or even Xiaomi is a match for the smoothness and fluency of sense even the 5.5 that i am using, y does 1 pay huge price for an i phone,some say they are nuts but use the i phone feel the quality the un paralleled smoothness then u know y some pay that much for i phone ,same way HTC is i phone of Androids so those who value that will buy HTC othera will buy some other set and will put it in olx or quickr within 1 to 2 years,if some1 wants an android set with i phone like stability,smoothness,precision,power etc choose HTC u will never ever regret

Seriously this phone priced at 35000 is not a best buy phone at that price point.It is offering the high end Snap 801 and remaining features are easily available at less price point.
+ Build quality is good(price drop is mainly due to dropping Metal)
+ Major features like Snap 801,2gb Ram,Fhd screen are good.
But Disappointing features are
- Camera which is same as like 816 not good and camera having only single Led flash after spending 35000 i should expect a better camera with Dual Led Flash but single led flash will be disappointing at night as said by all experts.
- No USB otg feature can't connect any usb devices
- No infrared port
- India Lte bands are unsure no confirmation from HTC have to wait till 15Aug.
# Conclusion: Htc have introduced a htc china E8 model in india without including more features(dual sim) but increase in price..Htc E8 china model features are doing more than a justice with their price(INR 27000)and thats why a hit in china but India htc E8 model is not Doing justice with their price(INR 35000).
I will recommend this phone only for those who are looking for Nexus 5(32gb) as it is better than Nexus 5 but Nexus 5 is going to be 1 year old.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2014For your info, it is expandable via micro sd card. Yes otg will be missed though!Bro i think you do not have any problem while reading and understanding.have i ever said in my comment this phone does not support microsd. Bro its better to read a comment thoroughly before throwing a comment.I said " USB on the go not only good only for non expandable phone but also for connecting various usb port devices.."Read again my previous comment
GOD DAMN HTC !! how many months more will you make us wait for the phone.
No sign of HTC One E8 in indian stores.I think before its available in India ,samsung s6 would have been available in stores.

Jhon998, 02 Aug 2014No USB OTG: Flash Drive/HDD. No USB Host Controller: Mouse and Keyboard. HELL DON'T BUY.How do you know that
before buy htc 616 at 16 or 17k's ... please go and compare the specs with xiaomi mi3 and asus zenfone 5.
focus on.... cpu, gpu, hsdpa, camera clarity, display and price. if you want just a brand name then htc is good. if u want a good spec for at the costlessly then find another taiwan product asus zenfone or even better spec and a great performance mi3 of xiaomi... i would say htc 616 is a waste of time....
Have been eagerly waiting to buy this device! But gsmarena review of it is slightly demotivating. Specially bcs of rear camera n usb. Guys do you think its worth a buy or Should I go for any alternatives ? budget 35k
