HTC One E8 review

The Good The HTC One E8 is equipped with top-end hardware with a brilliant and vibrant display . On top of that it runs the latest version of HTC's Sense UI and also has most of the features of the flagship One M8. 

The Bad The phone lacks exactly what made the One M8 unique -- its dual-camera system -- and also doesn't really outshine cheaper devices in the characteristics department . 

The Most Important Consideration The One E8 offers the high-end HTC experience in shiny colors and a plastic case , but without an original selling point , there's small reason to buy this highly-priced device . 

Comparable in design to this year's HTC One M8 , the One E8 is a plastic version of the flagship metallic phone . Originally destined for China , the E8 has announced to pop up in other Asian countries like India , Singapore and also Taiwan . HTC has yet to announce accessibility for other regions , though . 

With an off-contract price of S$698 in Singapore -- which converts to roughly $560 , £330 , or AU$600 -- the E8 isn't cheap . For its price , nevertheless , bear in mind the phone has the overall performance chops to compete with smash hit devices for example the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3 . 

Even though it is a good phone , the E8 lacks a standout characteristic to make it a must-have . At the best , it offers great specifications for a slightly lower price than additional top-notch phones . You don't obtain the cool refocusing capabilities from the One M8's dual camera , however it does come with some of its software program features , such as the capability to quickly take a photograph when the screen is off . 

Think of the One M8 with a plastic material shell and that's basically the E8 . Should you be already a fan of HTC's recent designs , you should similar to the E8 too , since it doesn't include much new . The mobile phone comes in three colors : white , red and gray .

Unlike the One M8 , with its own black bands wrapping around the back , the E8 goes for a more cleaner , shiny look . That's simply because the phone consists of plastic instead of being almost all metal and also needing an area for the radio antennas . 

The E8 possesses the same front-facing "BoomSound" speakers , gentle curves that fit comfily in your own palm and a 5-inch Full HD ( 1 ,920x1 ,080-pixel ) display . Determined by the country where it's sold , the telephone may come with dual-SIM slots , however this is at the cost of having the capacity to connect to 4G LTE . 

Like the M8 , the E8 is well-constructed and also solid . I absolutely adore how the phone feels inside my hand , though I can't quite get on board with the slick oily feeling which comes from prolonged use , due to the plastic chassis . Holding the mobile phone feels all natural even in landscape mode , as the curves make holding it easy . This indicates that playing games pretty comfortable , too . 

Placed right on the top at the center of the telephone is the power button . It's quite a stretch to reach normally , however these finger gymnastics are a minor concern as you'll only need to hit this button to turn off the phone , simply because you can double-tap the screen to turn it on . 

Software and also features 
HTC has one of the better custom skins for Android in the market , along with the E8 runs the latest Sense 6 UI -- much like the one found on the M8 and Desire 616 . It's based on the Android 4 .4 .2 KitKat operating-system , that could be the very latest type of Google's mobile software . 

Sense 6 has a clean look with color-coded applications . Supposedly , this will help you immediately identify what you're doing -- though I think this could be pretty obvious . Apart from that , BlinkFeed , the information aggregator introduced a year ago , is onboard , though you could choose to ignore and turn off it if you don't need its functions .
