It has well thought designed and curvatures are well worked out. Its look pretty good while holding it in hand and using it with style. Considering the size of the display it is a big size handset having 5 inches large display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolutions for given the best display quality to the users. The handset has a Super LCD3 instead of the simple LCD screen. It is capacitive touch screen with easy commands and convenient in handling. The handset measures 146.4 x 70.7 x 9.9 mm dimension having 145 grams weight which is quite light and reasonable as compared to the HTC ONE M8. HTC ONE M8 weighs 160 Grams which is quite heavy and cannot be carried  easily. The major difference between the two is the E8 comes in plastic body instead of metal. The E8 made up with super fine plastic having the variety of colors as plastic emulsion. The emulsion colors give the elegant and stylish look to the handset.

The rear camera is equipped with autofocus and  LED flash light for capturing prefect images of the moving objects in dim lights as well. The E8 has a better camera than the HTC ONE M8 there is no doubt that the HTC ONE M8 has a dual camera but the camera is low in configuration. As we stated above HTC E8 has a 13 mega pixels rear camera, HTC ONE M8 has a dual but only 4 mega pixel and when we see the secondary camera HTC E8 equipped with 5 mega pixels and HTC ONE M8 has only 2.1 mega pixel camera in this account we can say HTC E8 has a better and efficient camera instead of HTC ONE M8.

The both handsets have a common negative point, the battery is non removable and at this point users think before buying this handset because in case of damage to the battery the handset needs to be replaced completely instead of battery alone.
