amazon HTC One E8 reviews
Design is the biggest difference between the One E8 and M8. One E8 use plastic for edging and back, including a volume rocker on the right side. White version using plastic balls, and black plastic on the smooth and less than fingerprints. Plastic material on the E8 does not create a sense of luxury as on the M8, but it’s not bad, commensurate with the price of the machine.
Plastic shell on the E8 feels more hand holding stick aluminum shell of the M8. It also sports a little thicker, but lighter than the M8. Given the size of the machine, the user can easily hold in one hand, but when the operation using the two hands will be more comfortable.
The most striking detail on this front is still BoomSound dual speakers, which are arranged on either side of the screen when holding the camera horizontally. The navigation buttons of the phone is inserted into the screen, just as on the M8. At the back, there is no secondary camera E8 and M8 dual flash, but only a single flash.
E8 volume buttons of black, colored borders coincide with the machine should be slightly difficult to see from the beginning. At the right edge of the tray MicroSD card, plug the left edge is the Nano SIM tray, both must open by rods poke. The Power button is located at the center top of the machine, but somewhat difficult due to long press machine when holding the phone with one hand. E8 is not the first integrated infrared transmitter to control electronic devices such as M7, M8.
Design aspects HTC phones usually do well, and HTC E8 also did not disappoint. While the use of plastic can make it less impressive than the One series phones aluminum shell, but the overall design, materials and layout of the machine is still very well done.
Screen and speakers
Parameter screen identical M8 E8: 5 inch computer screen, a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, pixel density is 441PPI. With this resolution, the display is always sharp, by definition has exceeded the normal level of awareness of the human eye.
This definition has exceeded the normal level of awareness of the human eye, so that the image displayed is always sharp. The screen has a high maximum brightness (492 nits according to our measurements), not much shade should display well when used outdoors. E8 screen viewing angles are also very good, colors and contrast are virtually unchanged when rotating the screen at different angles.
E8 IPS screen display of colors in the direction of honesty, not brilliant as AMOLED screen. When compared to the screen M8 E8 yellow blaze over, so when using the evening, the more subdued.
E8 is equipped with dual speaker system features HTC BoomSound capital appreciation. External computer speakers with high volume, the sound separating the two sides, is placed in front of the sound directly to the ears when watching movies, listening to music. Overall this was the most impressive speaker system on the mobile phone.
This is the biggest difference between HTC One E8 and M8. One E8 unused UltraPixel 4MP camera appeared on the One series phones, instead 13MP camera. The frame rate of the sensor on the E8 is 4: 3 instead of 16: 9 as the M8. E8 is no dual cameras (to measure distances) and a dual flash white balance better, two features appear on the M8. The front camera of the two machines have the same resolution, but the angle of the M8 is much broader.
In terms of software, interfaces and modes of E8 photographed almost identical on the M8 (with the exception of the HDR movie mode, the E8 does not have). E8 does not have the editing features after shooting involving as M8 depth of field, while the other features are similar. Photography software allows adjustment of the machine a lot of detailed parameters when taking pictures.
E8 shutter speed of very fast, like on the M8. Sharp snapshots of the machine, due to its higher resolution photos M8 marginally better in terms of details. Like M8 metering machine very fast, if you select the location when shooting carefully metering the images are bright. The color of a little dazzling shots a little more realistic.
E8 proved to be overridden when shooting at night. Focus slower machines, for bright scenes the difference, sometimes small details are incorrect definition. Image sharpness is worse, prone to vibration. In return, the machine automatically take pretty standard colors, and users can also adjust if necessary with manual mode. E8 can be adjusted to image exposure, but like most other phones, images acceptable only at speeds below 1/8 seconds.
Maximum resolution when filming on E8 is Full HD (1920 x 1080). Video recording capability of E8 is not really impressive, sharpness and ability to catch the M8 inferior light. HP also supports slow motion recording mode (slow motion), but this time the resolution is reduced to 1280 x 720 pixels, there is no sound and the sharpness will be much lower.
Performance and battery time
One E8 is equipped with advanced configuration system 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. With such hardware, One E8 responsive, agile all applications and games on Android operating system. When using the application performance evaluation, achieved scores that E8 is equivalent to M8.
Another drawback of the One M8 and many other smartphones aluminum casing is hot when gaming machine using a 3G connection or after a period of time. E8 have overcome this drawback. After nearly half an hour of continuous game play, I noticed the machine to warm up only slightly on the back, not hot as the M8.
Battery capacity is 2600 mAh of E8, with the M8. When we use the machine under normal intensity, including 30 minutes of gaming, web surfing via Wi-Fi for 30 minutes (70% brightness), 30 minutes to watch movies stored on your computer (70% brightness, external speakers 70%) and 30-minute call, the machine took a total of 36% of the battery. Specifically, the machine takes 15% after the game, 10% after the surf, 8% after the cinema and 3% after the call.
