GalaxyS3toOneE8, 28 Oct 2014I've been using this phone for 2 months and it really brings awesome experience. Coming from S... moresir where you brought handset?cos i saw in all websites except reliance saying only gsm+gsm, did you brought the mobile from reliance or from open market?cos i want to use cdma+gsm,pl tell me will it support or not if i purchase from open market...
hello guyz. i am using this mobile around 3 months. so first let me tell you all that in india its the only high end premium mobile that support dual sim functionality with 2g/3g/cdma support in 1st sim slot and only 2g network on 2nd sim slot. let me clear all asking about dual sim functionality. i am using relience cdma truly unlimited plan on sim slot 1 and airtel sim on sim slot 2. cdma is working perfectly fine on slot 1. you can get evdo network where it supported or else u will get 1x network speed. where evdo support i am getting around 170 kb/sec download speed which is roughly 1.5mbps. another thing everyone is asking about wether we can recieve call on another sim when we are calling on another sim. so answer is yes. when i was on my relince sim on slot 1, i got the call during dat call from my airtel sim and when i recieved the call from airtel it put hold to the 1 slot sim on relince network and after disconnecting my airtel call, i was automatically resumed to my previous call on slot 1. so whoever is saying that we cannot get calls from another sim slot during a call is totally false.
Now about the phone battery performance. look guyz its very difficult to say about battery backup bcoz everyone usage and pattern is different. i was geetin around 1.5 days of battery backup whith 30 percent brightness some calls and always or can say mostly connected to my home wifi. but when i switch to my mobile relience evdo network which was very fluctuating at my location. so it can suck ur battery very high and i've got around 12 hours battery backup. so here i want to say that battery backup solely depend on your usage pattern. so yes its an high end set with full hd disply and dual sim supported phone so in my opinion battery backup is good not best but its good.
now the camera part . yes i am agree with most of ppl here that its not as great as samsung s5 or another brand high end set. but its good enough for those like me who click snaps on several occasions and can do decent vedio recording. so camera is good again not best but it serve its purpose very well.
now the reason for which i bought this phone- i am music lover and in this part this phone will definately not disappoint you all. boomsound speakers quality is very good not loudest but loud enough with exceptional clarity and beats. now the most important part is headphone music. i use soundmagic E10 earphone with this. and let me tell you guyz this combo is exceptional. the clarity the beats are perfect and volume levels are as much high as you can imagine. yes htc one e8 comes with htc earphones but i will recommend all music lovers to buy soundmagic e10 earphones for this music monster. and yes remember dont turn on the boomsound during lestening with the earphones bcoz it will spoil the clarity of music. boomsound is design by htc to give best of the speakers of the phone not in earphone part bcoz without boomsound u will get exceptional audio quality in earphones so no need to turn on the boomsound in earphones.
call quality is very loud during calls so no need to worry about that also.
so finally after using my samsung galaxy s2 for more than 3 years. i switch to htc and chose the perfect phone for me. and believe me guyz after using htc one e8 u will not want to go back to another samsung phone bcoz the premium quality of htc and sense UI and yes the dot view support and i m using dot view case with my htc one e8. its just perfect.
At last if anyone wants high end phone with dual sim support and premium quality with great music experience go for htc one e8.

SMYG, 27 Dec 2014does both sim work simultaneously when receiving messages?? It is dual active. I can call from SIM 1 to SIM 2.I m from India.
Abhi, 25 Dec 2014hello everyone..i am looking to buy this device..i have few questions.. 1. is dual sim works ... morehtc e8 dual sim not work at same time i mean its not active both sims, this is stand by only, for example if some one cal sim 1 and other person call to sim2 it will not work at the same time if both numbers are free you can recieve phone call in any numbers otherwise you have to divert both sims to sim one to sim 2 sim 2 to sim 1 some of the countyrs call divert network providers charging

Abhi, 25 Dec 2014hello everyone..i am looking to buy this device..i have few questions.. 1. is dual sim works ... moreE8 is the best premium Dual SIM smartphone right now in the market and is better than Note 3 Neo.It has good battery back up as I'm getting almost 2 days to a day with normal to heavy usage respectively. According to trusted leaks E8 will get Lollipop in between January and March.But E8's camera is not the best. Daylight shots are good but night shots are decent but not great. Overall I had great experience with this phone. I'd definitely recommend E8 over Note 3 Neo
