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.

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'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.

    • Sprint can't afford to go private, they can't afford to buy back shares from stockholders, going private won't happen.  Either the merger will pass (60/40 chance at this point), if not Son will find a buyer for Sprint and take a loss (hello WeWork) and as a trader the way Sprint's shares are trading its almost as if market makers are already pricing in a merger failure.  Sprint would have to do some serious trimming off its balance sheet, sale portions of its network and subs, or even file Chapter 11.  I don't really see Sprint filing bankruptcy I've seen companies with worse earnings and survive.  Son just wants out of the U.S. wireless market and merging with T-Mobile is the fastest way to do so all while pitching this "5G for all" bs <--- I don't even have faith in T-Mobile post merger if it happens.  Sprint needs someone with deep pockets like Altice or another large cable company (and most certainly not Dish). 
    • Yes, some of you disagree with me.  That's to be expected.  Sprint sucks in some places.  But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best.  And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable.  But guess what?  T-mobile sucks in many places.  And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier.  Verizon also stinks in places too.  I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go.  But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks.  Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves.  And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone.  I've seen many go over the years.  And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard.  But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread.  You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless.  Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings.  Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted.  Frankly, the drama is not true.  Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better.  And on the whole, it's better than its ever been.  So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it.  They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger.  Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert 
    • Boost founder has already said he would pay $2b for the brand back. 
    • Hi, Robert While I see your points, I respectfully disagree with some of them.  Properly managed, Sprint does have the resources to compete successfully.  But the key phrase is "properly managed", and that's where Sprint has shown critical weakness time and time again. Since Dan Hesse was screwed over in the Metro PCS debacle, and then dumped after Softbank took over, Sprint hasn't shown any signs of intelligent strategic management.  Tactically, they have tried hard to succeed, and have kept up with technology, and have tried to keep up with deployments.  But Softbank's refusal to provide capital (either directly or through 3rd parties), Claure's ham-handed cost cutting,  and Masa's tunnel-vision focus on merger have all combined to put Sprint in a desperate situation. So I agree with you that Sprint could compete in the future, but I think it is unrealistic to expect Masayoshi and Softbank to actually try to compete.  If the merger fails, I think that it is far more likely that Masa will basically dump Sprint just like he dumped Hesse, and loyal Sprint employees and the few remaining independent stockholders will be left swinging in the wind.  Sprint customers (I've been with Sprint for 20+ years) will also be hung out to dry.  I hope that I am wrong.  Actually, I hope the merger goes through, but if it doesn't, then I hope that I am wrong.  But I'm not counting on it.
