They priced it at 34.9k in India,which is absolutely foolish from part of HTC. Even though the tax rates in India is higher HTC could have launched it at 30k and still had profits.The only reason people were excited and looking forward for this phone was because this was gonna be half the price of M8.At 35k we could get galaxy s5.The price will be cut off when sales are low.We will see
Pathetic... first they say metal bodies cannot have removeable backs. After switching to plastic (which is a more suitable material for portable consumer electronics for durability, strength-to-weight ratios, reception & wireless charging issues etc.). They still cannot change the batteries.
What's worse... 2600mAh battery only!!!
Well that is not the case. Htc launched the desire 816 for 23,990. It was the online retailers sellling it for 27,000. Now it is selling for 23,000.So e8 will be selling for 33 to 34k. Not less than that.
deema, 14 Jul 2014How much is the continuous web browsing time for e8 at full battery. don't know but i compared it to my iphone 5s 64 which i must charge twice a day, this thing will last a day for sure

bala, 14 Jul 2014This doesn't have 4G support in Indian Version..?Supported. But locked by os. Will be unlocked after August by update.
In HTC Phones you have to scroll down to see the apps on your mobile instead of swyping left to right. Is there any settings using which this problem of HTC can be sorted out and the apps can be swyped from left to right likw in all others Android phones.

As per the gsmarena specs, this phone doesn't have corning gorilla glass, is that right
sanju, 12 Jul 2014another use and through product after m8.Both devices are very very tough to repaire.Sanju plz checkout my earlier comments on repair of HTC ONE M8. If at all you handover these premium phones to a local guy, they will simply shatter you. But once you give it to the authorized service center, they will return your stuff in fully working condition with all cosmetics retained.
Trust HTC they are simply excellent workmen.
