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.
Far superior than the Indian Galaxy S5 version.
Exynos processor comes no where against Snapdragon 801.
Thats why Samsung dont sell the Exynos version in Europe and American market.
Believing the specifications shown by GSMArena are true, what is HTC thinking by giving a - Dual-SIM, Full HD Display with 441 PPI, with 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera - a 2600mAp battery.... How can HTC believe this device will be on for a full day even with moderate usage. Today, almost all web related works (at least small to medium usage) are being done on mobiles only and with a power house like HTC-E8, how can we get a better battery life with just a meager 2600mAp battery???

Your not concentrating what exactly customer needs, even i agree that company should earn profit but keeping in mind about what exactly people needs
what amount should be for the mid range?
35k is pretty close to top range
platnium rule: treat your customer, that how you would like to be treated as customer
golden rule: give what customer exactly what they needs
so profit margin should be reasonable

no comparison btwen e8 nd s5. samsung is selling s5 in india with its exynos chip whch stands nowhere infront of sd 801. and s5 is also not a 4g phone.if u go for practical usage e8 is much better.

Mayukh2014, 11 Jul 2014Yeah price is not at all par :/ Yes you are very right.... they also the opportunity to dent some sales of samsung and other players ....
the price is too high, very disappointing!
I will go for apple instead of HTC.
One fan has been reduced from htc sectors.
Very High Price for these Specs...Samsung Galxy S5 is available @ 34000/- in india. so not any chance of buying HTC E8 @ 34000/-.
First , Htc should research indian market pricing of cometitive phones...
htc is rising up a set of specification which they r offering is pretty decent nd no offens to samsung fans it worth buying remember the GS5 was launched in india at the price of 50k+ with its shitty exynos chipset but htc one e8 is carring the flagship spec which the m8 carries but costs just 35k .the one m8 performence was super just hope that htc optimezes the e8 too then it will kick samsung's ass cz htc provides good polycarbonate plastic body rather than ssamsung's shitty cheap plastic shells and on top of that its look way more beautifull than samsung's soap like structure
