HTC has been experimenting a lot on designing their phones and came up with few of the many beautiful devices till date. Even the latest One M8, looks even better than its predecessor M7 - which was supposed to be a handsome phone that year. This time around, they came up with One E8 which looks similar to M8 in both specs and design, but the most noticeable this is the plastic clad body. It seems the main purpose of E8 is to provide the similar features on M8 but at a lower price. Do note, it is not a lower end phone, it’s a higher end phone with a difference in build quality with its bigger brother M8. Let us see how far this device is successful in establishing itself in the segment.


Design & Display:
AS earlier said, the One E8 looks exactly like M8. Instead of aluminium, E8 has the polycarbonate shell. There is not much noticeable difference between these two devices. Even though it is plastic, E8 still looks like a premium device. Ofcourse the only difference you can say is the feel it gives when held in hand. M8 feels pleasant to hold with its aluminium back while E8 gives somewhat of a dull plastic feel as the white and red colored E8’s have a glossy back. But behold the grey one has a matte finish and feels good.
The E8 sports a 5 inch 1080p display with 441ppi. That just feels so good on paper, but somehow the colors looks messed up when compared to the M8. But still this has a better display than most of the devices in the segment. Viewing angles are wide and sunlight legibility is too good with such a brightness.
Overall the E8 is has a wonderful design with a rigid build quality.


User Interface:
The device comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 6 running on top of it. The Sense UI has been improved over every release and similar to the M8, the UI runs very smooth and HTC has to be appreciated for maintaining the beauty of the UI without slowing the device. With the Sense 6, we can even change the theme – meaning changing the colors of UI.we also get BlinkFeed and Motion Launch features on this one too. Overall, everything looks the same like in M8.


Camera & Audio:
Thanks to HTC, instead of troubling us with the Ultra Pixel cam, which had a mixed acclaim, E8 has been given the traditional 13MP cam along with a 5MP cam in the front. Even though it has a powerful 13MP cam, the image quality is not upto the expectations. Images look a bit dull and ofcourse lack good detail. Eventhough with so many tweaks, and features like Zoe, somehow the image quality and video capture is not impressive and the rivals with the 13MP cam produce better image quality than this one.
Coming to Audio, we got the same BoomSound speakers and it just sounds awesome. The speakers provide excellent clarity both on loudspeaker as well as headphones. Audio-wise, we don’t find any issues with the E8 and it just impresses on this part.


Connectivity & Additional Features:
The E8 comes with dual-sim (Nano sim) dual-standby feature along with Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA, A-GPS and NFC. But for some of us, the lack of IR blaster might feel like a little disappointment. Call quality is decent enough but it feels not so loud when compared to the rivals.


Performance & Battery:
The device sports Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM. Internal memory is of 16GB and we also have microSD slot expandable upto 128GB. With such internals and Sense, the device runs smooth and is powerful enough to do most of the games and multitasking. The benchmarks also turn out to be impressive with Antutu score around 36k and Quadrant score around 23k. So performance matches with the rivals and is better than most of them.
The E8 comes with a battery capacity of 2600mAh and almost has the same battery life of M8. It easily runs for the whole day and with a bit of rigorous usage, it should atleast get you around 16hrs. The only issue would be that the battery is non-removable.


Beautiful design
Excellent audio quality
Impressive performance


Camera is not really upto the mark.
Non removable battery
Call clarity should have been better.


Overall the E8 has a lot to impress like its bigger brother M8. With a beautiful design, excellent speakers and solid performance to match the rivals, the phone is easily recommendable. The only weakpoint is the image quality, which is not really expected from a 13MP device. If you can adjust with it, you would be really happy with the E8.
