Got it on Saturday, works great, great display great build quality, great sound.
This morning i put my SIM back in my Iphone 5S, its all about software and size
i could not get used to the size and Android. Android is still not as intuitive as IOS
for the rest : great phone (oh : and also great battery life!!!!!!)

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.
Ronnie 4, 13 Jul 2014even i planned to buy htc 816 first ! now im gng to buy E8 becuz it has high end specs almost ... moreHi
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.

And plz inform clearly whether 4g will work in this phone & the price will be whether come little down.Good phone with high specs whom r searching fr high specs phone.And what about service
[deleted post]Higher prices are usually associated with higher costs to do business in a particular country (ie. import taxes, legal, approval, licensing , and corporate tax costs to sell in the country). Obviously India these costs are higher for foreign firms because the government probably wants to give a home turf advantage to local manufacturers like Micromax, who I absolutely despise.
Because HTC's are manufactured in China, they're probably getting a tax break from the Chinese government to sell them in China. And oil rich Dubai has some of the lowest taxes in the world. India simply cannot compete with these incentives.
The fault lies with your government's import/corporate tax policies, not HTC.

I heard about d... moreBro like you many were waiting for high end E8 with cheap build quality and at cheap price.No doubt 816 is worth buying but its not a future proof phone and i dont think htc will be doing much hard work in providing updates for 816.but E8 no doubt highly priced is definitely a future proof smartphone obviously you cant get Snap 801 and LTE(expected as M8 having 2300 mhz for India) at this price from any major smartphone manufacturer.My advice is just wait for more 30 days only and online price is much cheaper than showroom price so my expectation for online price is 31K-32k.

I personaly like those mobile which have better featured. Stoke android is good, but by adding feature they become better than stoke android. For eg. google want to make android l so mobile will get btter battery life, but htc and sony's changed android version after jelly bean are already less battery consuming device as compared to nexus

HTC One E8 is an Awesome Smartphone it look very Luxurious on hand on more info infoforever
SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME! I've been thinking to buy a new phone since February. I heard about desire 816 and waited for it. Then when it was finally available I came to know about HTC one e8. Everyone said it's gonna be a midrange phone so I again waited. But now looking at its price its not at all a mid range phone. Should I just buy desire 816 now? Or is it worth buying e8? I really adore e8 because of its specs but its price is too much. Please tell me what I should do? :( Honest opinions please.
