Spec showdown: HTC One (E8) versus the HTC One (M8)

Spec showdown: HTC One (E8) versus the HTC One (M8)

The HTC M8 Ace rumors turned into reality this week when HTC revealed the HTC One (E8). For all intents and purposes, the HTC One (E8) is a polycarbonate-clad, more affordable version of the HTC One (M8). But there are a few other minor tweaks to the spec sheet which set the two phones apart. For starters, the HTC One (E8) only comes with 16GB of storage, but its Qualcomm 801 chip is clocked at 2.5GHz, making it slightly more powerful than HTC’s true flagship.

On the imaging side, the HTC One (E8) and One (M8) share the same 5 megapixel front-facing camera, but the One (E8) trades in the UltraPixel DuoCamera setup of the One (M8) for a standard 13 megapixel auto-focus BSI sensor. The HTC One (E8) lacks the IR blaster that the One (M8) features in its power button, but we doubt too many people will even notice.

Check out the table below to see how similar the HTC One (E8 and HTC One (M8) actually are.

    Many errors in this article as you said the e8 is the 805 processor in the original text and wrote 801 in the specsheet.
    Also, in the original text you mentioned the missing IR blaster on the e8 but still wrote that its included in the special feature in the spec sheet.

      E8 will be 801, it’s the same specs as the One, but with plastic. But I don’t know about the IR blaster, I think it doesn’t have.
