Bullshit.. they didn't even give 2 major updates to the phone in 2 years.. damn screw htc..
I feel samsung is way better than HTC.. at least they give updates to phones.. buying 34k phone and getting no updates.. HTC desire 816 was 20k phone got android M already.. bullshit..
I bought this phone in December 2014 knowing that hopefully i will get lollipop + MM update, I was happy at first when i got the lollipop update but still 5.0.2 and not 5.1.1 made me sad again.
Then i hoped for MM update i was excited but again there is no information about the update for Indian model phones.
I am wondering in India which smartphone manufacturer gives best android updates because i am sick of phones not getting update because its a Indian model.
I am planning on getting new phone selling this good for nothing E8 which has no 4G(2300hz for my airtel 4g) or MM update which makes me have no interest in keeping this phone any longer than I have to.
Dixitakarsh, 01 Apr 2016Select reboot options instead of reboot to boot loader.Ok !?! But this will not help to update ? How to update then if locked and how to unlock ? Do you recommend ? It's not logic to stay with the same software ?
Thanks for the help

I got my hands burnt last year by making changes in radio band, where my phone lost signal and HTC service certer could not fix the issue and finally I got replacement.
So, anybody who is sure can help us.
In *#*#4636#*#* phone info menu I find options like 'turn on lte ram dump' and under 'select preferred network type' I find many choices of which LTE was not the default option. If that is changed will we be able to use 4G...

Dixitakarsh, 08 Apr 2016Don't loose hope wait for marshmallow,it is possible that marshmallow will provide 4g support ... moreYes, i did buy this phone in Oct 2014, i was in dire need of a new phone as my old xperia x8 was busted, i wanted to buy One Plus One but it was not available in India at that point of time, so I went for 2 more options I had left with within my budget which were Xperia Z2 and HTC one e8. I found e8 better and than Z2 at that point of time...! But, now i regret, that I should have waited 2 more months as OPO launched in India in Dec 2014!!
I think that HTC would not provide any software tweaks to implement 4G support for 1800MHz band in India as its more of a hardware related issue than something which can be fixed by updates..!
Anyways, thanks for all the support Bro..! It was nice talking to you.... Good Luck!

I read about the band 1800MHz here and other websites for this phone, while I was buying this phone and knew eventually 1800MHz band would be released in India. Never I had thought that once again I am only buying a 3G device that too with INR 35k! I feel ridiculously duped by HTC now!

Dixitakarsh, 06 Apr 2016HTC one e8 support 4g for 1800 band.HI again.. I am using m8sd model and on 5.0.2 Lollipop. I am currently using 4G sim card provided by Vodafone Store in Calcutta few days ago. I am not getting access to 4G or LTE, its only showing H in the notification bar and in settings menu when I go to 'Mobile data'>Slot 1 network>Preferred Network> I am getting only 3 options: (1)Global mode (2)CDMA mode (3)GSM/UMTS mode and under GSM/UMTS mode> again 3 more options: (a)GSM/UMTS Dual (b)GSM only (c)UMTS only. So, there is no option of 4G or LTE in those menus.
I know that Vodafone in Calcutta is providing 1800MHz band for 4G LTE FDD, because I confirmed it from the Vodafone Store Supervisor.
Is it that somehow 4G not activated on my phone but its working for you?
DRajpal, 07 Apr 2016It is nowhere written in Device specs that it is for Sprint.It is port of m8 Rom by black Victor for all HTC one e8 dual SIM.
