7)Heavy games run without lag on max settings (Tested - Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 & Real Racing 3)
8)Boom Sound – Best speakers on the market on any Mobile till date.
10)DLNA works Awesome. (Connected to LG smart LED TV worked flawlessly) I was able to share my mobile screen with ZERO lag. Played games on mobile but watching on TV.
11)Comes with android 4.4.2 and with promised updates from HTC till 2 years from product launch. (Expected Lollipop update in Q2 2015.)
12)It’s A Premium phone with Dual Sim. (no other phone in this category comes with Dual Sim)
13)Smart gestures works fine. No problems encountered.
14)Camera has option to save custom camera settings and Manual mode which works really great.
15)Slow-motion videos comes out awesome.
16)Very good photo editing settings built in with good set of filters and customizations.
17)Supports USB OTG fine, checked with 4GB pen drive with OTG cable, also connected 8GB dual pen drive which worked fine. (Needs File manager App)
18)Good SAR ratings.
19)Headphones comes with phone are of good quality, Sounds excellent with Poweramp with little tweaking.
20)New charger will be available soon with Quick Charge 2.0 technology (Charging 60% in 30 minutes)
The Bad -
1)No file manager to transfer data from SD card to phone memory or to USB OTG. (Will have to install third party File manager apps from play store.)
2)No Equalizer in HTC Music App.
3)Lollipop update shall come with M8 but now looks like it will come in Q2 2015.
4)Less LTE Spectrum bands supported for Indian version compared to competition.
5)Non removable battery.
6)Slow charger, 1 mAH which takes three hours to charge battery from 5% to 100%.
7)Wi-Fi hotspot doesn't work properly for file transfer (Works well with Xender, C share app). Data Network Sharing (3G/2G) works fine on other devices.
8)Due to Glossy finish phone attracts lot of Dust & Fingerprints also gets scratched easily.
9)Only two colored notification LED, not multi colored like Nexus devices.
10)The ear-buds (Red colored) comes with headset doesn't give good fit. I have tried all sizes. Now I have put Sony earbuds.
1)Camera Auto white balance sucks big times & it’s not that wide.
2)No optical image stabilizer nor the 2k or 4k video recording.
3)Front 5mp camera is not wide enough for selphys.
4)The black strip with HTC logo at the end of screen which unnecessary increases height of the phone.
5)Awkwardly placed screen on off/power button.
6)I have inserted 32GB class 10 SanDisk micro SD card. Sometimes unexpectedly card gets unreadable & then immediately phone reads it again, in between this lot of applications gets crashed (apps which we move on memory card). Sometimes it doesn't read the card again once crashed. So will have to restart the phone.
7)Not all 4G LTE spectrum bands supported. Supported are 1800 / 2100 / 2500
E8 is released in June 2014 worldwide & got available in India in around July-August 2014. As of March 2015 E8 faces some serious Competition. One plus one & Mi4 are available via online retailers for much lesser price. One plus one will be good deal then Mi4 if you are on budget. Moto X 2nd generation 32 GB is also good deal if you don’t mind the non-expandable slot and want to get Vanilla Android experience. Z2 & Z3 are waterproof options, Z3 is good phone but Sony is planning to sell their mobile business because of losses, also Z3 cost lot more and Z4 is around the corner. If you have high budget then look for Flagships, like M9, M8, Nexus 6, S6, Note 4. If you have Budget of 30-32k then you will have to choose from S5, Moto X 2nd generation & E8. (Not considered other phones from Chinese manufactures) All have their pluses & minuses. E8 holds its own ground with Boom Sound, Dual Sim, 128 GB expandable option, better battery & screen. Moto X biggest merits will be 4k recording and fast android updates. S5 has better camera, more sensors but doesn’t have 801soc and have heavy Touch wiz UI. I think E8 is a good deal for 30-31k and you can get it in shops as some people not comfortable with online transactions. I am totally satisfied with my purchase and ya the phone totally is worth it.
@ Amazer Pudding Case- I also bought Amazer Case from Amazon for 549/-. It’s a light case, comes in black color with precision cutouts. Protects phone well, as I dropped phone 2-3 times from 3-4 feet. Made up of TPU material. Totally worth it.
Thanks for your time and Patience.
