Looks like a good device, but today's gadget spam has gotten out of control. Thanks Samsung.

Staff has been aware of this device for the last several weeks.  Its authorizations hit the FCC OET in late July.  We just were unsure what it would be named.

Yeah, it is an m8 shaped like an m7 and in plastic but internals are all the same as the m8. I don't even think this device will be coming to the US though.

The htc device that passed through the FCC I think might be a different device, more along the lines of the "desire" series of htc phones which is a slight step down from this. I don't think the E8 is coming to the US.

 

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I guess it would have helped if I had actually watched the video. I stand corrected.

That is a Sprint video on YouTube featuring the E8. So yes, it is coming to the states.

The plastic on that thing looks too glossy and slippery to me.  I tend to use my devices without a case.  I haven't dropped a phone of mine in many years (*knock on wood*).

 

This device looks like the backplate will resemble the G2's in how slick it is.  But...  The M8 in a plastic shell with the same internals?  Could be a RF beast seeing how the M8 holds its own...

I know the desire series of htc phones will be coming to the US but I didn't think the E8 would have made it. If this is priced just right they should be able to move quite a few of these.

A dark matte finish is also supposed to be available -- at least, it is on international HTC One E8 variants.

I guess that wasn't meant to be seen by the public took them long enough to figure it out that it was uploaded publicly

Yeah...  I am sure it will be "officially" announced on Tuesday at the event.

Anyone picking one of these up? I am thinking about it. Would appreciate some help if someone can interpret the FCC RF data to see how it stacks up.

Wow, very little response to this phone so far. I thought everyone one was itching for a M8 with a higher megapixel camera without a duo camera. Interesting...

It's pretty much the same as the M8, only plastic and has a higher Mp camera. Only thing I can think of as far as the adoption of this phone is that everyone had already( who wants htc phones) has bought a M8 and dose not see spending money to buy a phone that's just like the one they have. Just my opinion, I loved my M8 and if the E8 was out at the time I may have reconsidered witch I would have gotten. I would recommend this to someone looking for a good phone though.

Mega Pixels means nothing when it comes to the quality of the photo.  In every comparison, the camera on the m8 kills the camera on the E8.  Most just refuse to give the camera on the M8 any credit.  It takes fantastic photos, its only when you feel the need to crop is when you run into quality issues.

The M8 takes great pictures, like you said the only way you get into trouble is zooming in. When I went and bout tires for my MX-5 I took a picture of them to send to my dad, then when I had to get his tires for his truck I took a picture with my S5 at the time. And to be honest the M8 looked more sharp, but when needing to take a picture and zoom it on it the S5 wins every time, other than that the M8 wins imo.

So, if I read this correctly, the E8 is a plastic version of the M8, but it's the size of the M7? Does that mean M7 accessories would fit it?

It is not the same size as the M7. It is nearly identical to the M8.

 

HTC One E8 146.42 x 70.67 x 9.85 mm

HTC One M8 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35 mm

Oh!  Interesting.  I was at a Sprint store yesterday and wanted to check it out but they didn't have one on display.

The shape is slightly different. The back of the E8 is sloped down at the top and bottom in addition to the sides (M8 is only the sides).

I wonder how that affects the way it rests on a flat surface

It will wobble slightly like the m7 and m8 on flat surfaces.

      I know it is a bit early, but since there have been some pretty strong rumors already regarding this device, I figured I'd start a thread for it, just as I did for the LG V20.
       
      I had the LG V20 for a short time last year, and while I anxiously awaited several months for the smartphone, I only had it for a short amount of time after purchasing it when it became available. While I really liked the device for most of its features, one glaring issue I noticed on the few units I tried, was some bad grey uniformity of its LCD screen. Some people didn't notice this issue on theirs, while others did, including me.
       
      That seems to be changing this year though, with the LG V30 heavily rumored to be featuring an OLED screen. As this will be LG manufacturing the OLED screens, rather than Samsung, its quite likely not to be the Pentile variety. The only reason I prefer LCD to OLED, is in my dislike only for the Pentile variety of OLED that has been present on a majority of OLED smartphone displays.
       
      Not having Pentile means I finally will be able to say I prefer OLED to LCD. All except for the image retention and burn-in risks I've been reading may soon become a thing of the past, at least in regards to LG's OLED technology. Personally, despite the investment Samsung has made in AMOLED, I believe there is a possibility Samsung may end up switching to QLED for smartphone displays once they become the emissive-style technology, without the LCD panel involved.
       
      In the meantime, it'll be interesting to pay attention regarding the LG OLED vs Samsung AMOLED feud in smartphones coming up later this year. Oh, and besides the LG V30 showcasing OLED in a single display format, rumors are there will be two OLED displays involved. One for the main screen, and another for the quick launch controls. I'll make another post in this thread with links here soon.

      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.

      hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !
    • By Nrbelex
      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?
