We here are the Product Ambassador have been telling you how great the One E8 is for a few weeks now, but you don't have to just take our word for it.
PC Magazine has recently bestowed it's coveted Editor's Choice designation for the E8 in it's review, giving the handset an "excellent" rating. The publication sites various reasons for this honor, and much of it falls along the same lines of what the PAs have been reporting all along. Sleek design, excellent display, great audio, killer feature set and above all, value and quality for a low price point.
Notable quotes that we like:
"The HTC One E8 is proof that you can cut costs without cutting quality. Though it trades luxurious aluminum for pedestrian plastic, the E8 is neither cheap nor watered down."
"The E8 is worthy of the Editors' Choice distinction bestowed upon its metal-clad counterpart."
"Performance is blazing fast, the display is crisp and bright, and call quality is strong overall."
"HTC's design heritage shines through with the One E8, which harkens back to the original One X, another beautifully designed plastic phone. It's a compromise, no doubt, compared with the premium feel of the M8, but nearly every other feature that made that phone great remains here, just at a discounted price. The E8 is the One for pragmatists, and thus earns our Editors' Choice award."
Not bad at all we'd say!
Sure there a couple of trade offs vs the M8, but overall, you are getting a ridiculously good device with much of what the M8 has to offer but at half the price. And these days, when every dollar counts, that's nothing to sneeze at.
Until next time,
