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. Understandably many One (M8) customers grumbled, but perhaps they will not now – the One (E8) will cost just S$658.
It’s about bloody time. While non-Asians have been gallivanting around with their games, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan citizens have been stuck on the Xbox 360. But not anymore – the Xbox One will be dropping in Singapore on September 23.
Not the best move HTC, I must say. Exactly two months ago, HTC launched their brilliant HTC One (M8) with a 90% metal body, the faster processor, superb UI and dazzling display. 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.
Just under a month after the launch of the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, LG is ready to follow suit. They have just confirmed with us that the successor to the highly acclaimed LG G2 will be launching worldwide at the end of next month, which means a competition free release window.
The main program will be taking place in London on May 27 with simultaneous events scheduled in New York and San Francisco. On May 28, unveiling events will also be held in Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul as well.
A year on from the HTC One M7, HTC seems to be learning from their gravest mistake with the device – poor marketing. Holding a huge bash with accompanying act Scarlet Avenue yesterday night for their launch event, HTC seems to have got off on the right footing with the M8. Read on to know what we think of it.
