Initially HTC faced some serios challenges in the smartphone making, along with the heavy losses of approx $100 million in Q4 2013 alone.India being one of the biggest smartphone growth markets in the world, the company really needs its new batch of devices to do well.
The company has been planning to concentrate on the mid-range segment (Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000 priced smartphones) and the premium segment.
As already stated,the HTC One E8 is basically a cheaper version of the One M8. Although it’s the polycarbonate equivalent to the metal-bodied One M8, there’s no denying that this is a good looking device and the polycarbonate doesn’t seem to have a very ‘plasticky’ feel.

The BlackBerry Z3, being the most affordable BlackBerry 10 device. It has aided the Canadian company to revive the success of the Curve 8520 which exactlymade the once top management phone a household name.
Price: Rs 15,900
The Z3 resembles the Z10, which is leading from last year. Z10 also is larger and thicker. But they are same in context to design language. The phone is also handy weighing around 164 gms. The textured back and all-black finish gives the phone a buisness choice. There is a slim flap on the right which reveals the SIM and SD card slot , while four buttons on the left.
Due to its 5-inch qHD display,the Z3 is a fabulous phone . difference cannot be made out in resolution with at least 720p although the qHD display is obviously not as good as HD or Full HD. The present screen is not going to affect your experience in anyway. And that is what matters. If better resolution is needed, there is Miracast to beam content to a larger screen.
Considering the way it is meant to be used, performance is not an issue with this phone. With easy multi tasking a maximum of four apps can be worked at the same time.Performance does not degrade a bit even with four apps frozen. The phone also stays cool most of the time, which is a big help these days.
The Z3 has 8GB internal storage with extra storage with the SD card. The phone is also preloaded with BoX, DropBox and Evernote, which add a few engagements between them.
Its a legacy with all blackberry phones, connectivity is never a problem.
The Z3 has the 10.2.1 version of the BB10 OS. There are lot of new features in the OS, now notifications appear can be acted upon on top of the app you are on. There is a pull down settings panel and quick sharing from anywhere, inspired by android. But what really matters is its ability to accept most Android apps. The next version of the OS, scheduled to come out in a few months, includes full access to the Amazon app store too.
Blackberry cameras are always modest. It performs well in low light and is superb in daylight. Picture can be clicked by just touching the screen, which is always suitable for a selfie.
The full charged battery lasts for a working day.The power would last longer for few more hours, for those who don’t use data all the time.
The Z3 definitely has enough features and it also prevents its loyal users from moving out to other brands. However, it can’t be assured that the platform offers enough incentives for those using other brands to takejumpfor blackberry. At a lower price point, BlackBerry may have started pursuing a lot of people looking to buy their first Android powered smartphones.
