[deleted post]yes saw it although its abt 1000Rs more will be out in the market by the weekend.
I own a mobile shop....price of HTC One E8 is 34900 in local stores...if shopkeeper is known to you...he might give you 2-3% disc.
And in flipkart you may see...seller is not WS Retail Pvt. Ltd. Who are actual online sellers....the price what you are seeing is from other sellers which is placed between 35.8-39k....it's because they are taking advantage of monopoly as its not available anywhere in Indian online market
[deleted post]Yippy, I have ordered for one getting tmrw evening.
pk, 05 Aug 2014thank you for your opinion. my budget is INR Rs. 35k which is the price of this phone here. ho... moreFor 35k you won't find any other phones which assure all what you want too, if you did you will buy it. :)
Camera is not good when compared to other flagships, otherwise it's decent enough for normal pics. 4G is barely present in any phones that cost, its mostly there on flagships. There is a Micro SD slot it you want to expand memory, so no otg is not really much of a bummer!
surya, 05 Aug 2014whether there is dot view case for htc one e8????Yes you will get a dot view for the One E8 soon in the markets soon!
guys which is the best color? I like white/red but reviews say its scratch prone. the matt grey one looks pretty dull. any idea when the phone will be availbale in stores? on flipkart its selling at 1k more than the mrp.
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.

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.

kaushik, 05 Aug 2014Whoever want to buy HTC One E8... Tomorrow its coming in market I.e, 06th august How do you know???
Whoever want to buy HTC One E8...
Tomorrow its coming in market I.e, 06th august
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.
