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.
The htc one E8 dual sim phone what i have bought in december 2014 at coimbatore updated with lollypop is only having gsm/3g/ CDMA options. i had chat with htc centre online ,they said no 4g for for my phone after confirming my phone imei(code number).regarding update it is under process. i am upset by HTC for not providing 4g version and cheating with cdma version for 35000 rupees phone. i conveyed my anger to them.what is the point in expecting mm android 6 now.whereas htc m8 got all features.. initially everybody including gsm arena said except the cover and infrared connectivity both are same.official website for htc one e8 dual sim shows only 2g and 3g..the 4g bands for htc one e8 dualsim/cdma are 25(1900)26(850)and 41 (2500). truly no lte or 4g in my phone..thank you

Posting it here was very much misleading. What's the point of posting what the HTC USA has to say about their update plans, when the discussion was predominantly about the Indian model.
And any kind of rumor, whether real Or fake, is very frustrating since everyone here is waiting for the update.
PS:No offense to either of you.

Coming to your post on no updates for E8, it's only after I hit out to you, you came up saying it's true for phones in US. When the discussion here has been for India and people have been asking the same for India, you make a generic statement like as of the "no update" is true for every region, so who's the kid here? For some odd reason, your primary aim is to falsify info and get people agitated. Do something productive instead of this nonsense.

And if u find some spelling mistake than correct them because I don't have time for correcting those mistake.

He's here just to spread rumors and make you hate the OEM. I did have a chat with HTC India representatives and they said, the update is in pipeline and apologized for the wrong info HTC USA tweeted. You will get the update soon :)

You are again back to spreading rumors. It would be constructive if you could first read all theosts and then comment. The rollout is still in pipeline!

Everyone can still wait but according to htc USA the plane of launching android m on HTC one e8 has been dropped and only security updates will be provided to htc one e8.

As I have mentioned earlier , HTC E8 will be 480$ feature phone if HTC is not giving 3G in 900 MHz or LTE in 1800/2300 MHz in India . As we can see that it is enabled in other areas of world .
It will bad future for HTC , if they don't understand the need for customers atleast now .
How many of you have noticed these two bugs with sense 6?
1. The phone does not vibrate when a call is answered even though vibration feedback for calls is enabled.
2. WhatsApp still gives notification when priority mode is set though priority is not enabled for WhatsApp.
I hope they've fixed this in the M update.
Since lollipop was a major update, it was stupid of HTC to retain the same sense skin on 5.0.2 for 2014 devices.
I have also come to know that they've improved the search on the dialer in sense 7. In sense 6 and below if you dial a number (1234567890 for eg) and of you have stored the contact of this number with the country code, then the contact does not show up when you dial the number. Smart dial works though seemlessly.
The feature HTC has still left out in sense 7 is heads up notification for calls while using an app which was introduced in 5.0. The call notification still shows up full screen irrespective of what you are doing at the moment.
Ppb, 06 Apr 2016Ya but those desire where 816 and desire eye ...both have been updated in India ...I guess the... moreE9, E9+ and M9+ are also yet to receive the update and given that the update has already been rolled out for E8 in other parts of the world, it should rollout in another weeks time.
