HTC One (E8) available from 26 July at S$658

I wasn’t very happy with HTC’s decision to launch the One (E8) over a month ago. Using the brilliant HTC One (M8) with a 90% metal body, the faster processor, superb UI and dazzling display as a baseline, they re-launched it in plastic but with a better camera.

Problem is, it took the 4 MP UltraPixel gamble again, and failed. Again. Now HTC has released the One (E8), with a polycarbonate body, but a 13 MP camera.

Sony Xperia Z2 Review – Third time's the charm

OVERVIEW

Welcome to Twenty First Tech’s review of the Sony Xperia Z2. Third in the flagship Z line from Sony, the extremely short time between this and the Z1 has caused the resale value of the Z1 to take a large hit. Still, the Z1 is a very capable device, and the Z2 looks to build upon that legacy.
