[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.
garcha, 12 Jul 2014Why you are going for 816 when u can nexus 5 having 1080p screen and snapdragon 800 which is n... more I know note 2 is good divice but talking about nexus, nexu is for those who like stoke android. 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.
Can anyone tell me is there a FM Radio in E8. Also which one is better HTC ONE(M7) or the E8. How is the camera compared to 4 ultrapixel of M7
AM totally confused right now..i was waiting for E8 and wanted FM Radio but it seems missing even in the specs mentioned on HTC website. HELP PLEASE ...!!!...
4G LTE Dual Sim phone - Huawei Ascend P7 L00 is the best. Works beautifully. Quality aluminium body with glass back. Sleek n sexy. Priced correctly compared to E8.

P.S am using note 2 myslef and still stayng go with nexus.
another use and through product after m8.Both devices are very very tough to repaire.
Most advanced and fastest phone ever. 2.5 ghz give better performance, 2gb ram. Camera optimized with 13mp,HDR. But if your budget is low go for Desire 816.
I was waiting for this phones since one month. Expected to be priced at 27K, now the price is way over. I want to ask is it still worth buying ?
Also I want to ask about Xiaomi mi3, any suggestions i.e. worth buying or best ignored.
It is haired that HTC One E8 will be mid range phone, But it is not true. The price of M8 & E8 near about same. HTC not think about mid range customer. HTC should pay for this. I am waiting long time for E8, But it is not possible for me to purchase this one due to high price. So I am planning to buy LG G2 or Samsung S4. Good buy HTC...
