Angry Mobile Nerd, 19 Jun 2014Chinese unboxings and benchmarks starting to coming out. Fresh out of the box 37796 in Antu... morePlease note that the Asian version of HTC E8 has a 2.5 GHZ processor , while in other continents has the same processor but its downclocked to 2.3 GHZ...Same goes for M8...!
Hmm. I guess the metal/aluminium design isn't really that important to most people.
Chinese unboxings and benchmarks starting to coming out.
Fresh out of the box 37796 in Antutu, a little higher than the M8.
Would be a shame if it didn't come to the US and Europe. It would be a OnePlus killer!
Are they really wrong or just thinking about get the same smartphone for almost half the price?
I have HTC ONE M8 and it's beautiful, but If I knew HTC would launch such cheap high-end phone, I would have buy it. Not for plastic design, but metal case doesn't worth U$250
Most folks put cases on their phones for protection so metal case or plastic case really make not much difference. I do have to admit that I put a clear case on my M8 as it is a shame to hire that case. If the E8 were available I would have considered buying it instead and saving me some money.

Samsung suffered from a few things which caused its poor reception: Poor materials, which felt cheap (Lumia by comparison feels sturdier), ugly design (Design chief was sacked), and simply most people feeling that it was boring and lacking any innovation.
HTC please do some help with this in india...Atleast announce the date..or else have to compromise with T2 or T3 ...please announce the release date/ launch date in india..
and make sure that like HTC desire 816 it's not blackmarketed.....
Choose any site which will exclusively give dis cell....

And this is why Samsung make plastic smart phones. Samsung are a Korean company and they try to tailor their phones for the western and eastern markets. You can see this in the 'bloop' sounds, they are included because they are popular in eastern markets

waiting for this htc E8 to launch in my country sure will beat sales of gs5 and z2 and m8
goooo htc you diserve the glory
Love you htc... Just want htc to be on top.. and it will be no 1 one day..
Where are all the premium aluminum fans? Where are all the zombies that want premium feel like diamonds in the hand? This proves that the world loves cheap plastic, just nerds and crazy geeks in tech sites complain about plastic. Thanks HTC for prove their wrong.
I believe to HTC all my life..
I didn't complete satisfy of one x but one m7 was incredible..
Now I'v one max with up sense 6 and only I must tell HTC going to top of android devices with light speed.
E8 will be my next phone sure and HTC will back to pick of sales soon cuz people know everything isn't advertise..
Htc's brand itself is the best advertise for unique products.
I think sales are great because of the camera and the low price.....most people wouldnt spend heeps of money for a 4MP camera...its good but just cant compete with higher amount of megapixels..Ithink dispite the price,M8 would sell alot if it wasnt the 4MP camera....And E8 doesnt have the look of the Premium M8....I love M8 and mini 2 as well...peace :)
