HTC One (E8) now available at Sprint as a cheaper One (M8) alternative

Essentially a cheaper version of the One (M8), the One (E8) has a body that’s made out of plastic, not metal - though it retains the overall design of the One (M8). Sprint is selling the new smartphone for $99.99 on contract, or $499.99 off contract. Customers can also choose Sprint’s Easy Pay plan ($0.00 down, and $20.84 monthly payments for two years). As you may know, the One (M8) is offered by Sprint for $199.99 on contract, or $649.99 sans any agreement, so getting the E8 will allow you to save precious bucks.
The One (E8) runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, and has a 13 MP rear camera instead of the Duo rear snapper of the One (M8). But the rest of its features have remained unchanged. If you’re interested in knowing more about the handset, you should read our HTC One (E8) review (the international version).

Looks like a pretty good lower end phone, good job.

It's not lower end. The specs are pretty much identical to the One M8. LOL.

No. Haha. "You're right" was about Birds' comment that the specs are pretty much identical to the One M8. But It still looks like a lower end. Look. I said look. xD I think it doesn't look as good as the M8, not because it's plastic, but because HTC seems to have cut back a lot in term of design on this E8. All the lines, rims, and the look around the camera of the M8, aren't here on the E8. It seems bland, at least in these photos.

The only reason I would ever get an HTC phone is the metal body...
