There goes the One (E8) - one that has to make do with its seemingly biggest advantage taken away, the aluminum unibody and its slick finish and chamfered edges replaced by polycarbonate. Now, isn't that a recipe for disaster? Especially for a company that's been struggling to regain lost market share, you'd think that moving away from your strongest suit would be a mistake. The HTC One (E8), however, has proven to be anything but.

The HTC One (E8) solves both of those problems, and solves them handily.
HTC One (E8) key test findings:
- Build quality is solid and functional, although understandably inferior to a metal unibody
- The 5-inch 1080p display of the E8 shows the same great contrast and sunlight legibility as the M8's
- Battery life is excellent, with better standby and browsing times, but lower 3G calling than the M8
- The benchmarks are among the best we've seen from an HTC device, handily outperforming the M8
- The still camera performs well and is similar to the ones found on the HTC One mini 2 and the Desire 816
- Video quality is good, too. It has a 1080p@60fps mode, but doesn't go as high as 2160p
- Audio quality is excellent
- The speakers have average loudness
- Sub-par video decoder support, and the video player does not support subtitles
Now, the E8 won't go for as little as half the price of an M8 - far from it. But with a superior battery life, slick Sense 6 interface, and vastly improved camera and processing speed, it has all the makings of a sleeper hit for a company that desperately needs one.
