HTC is too late to launch E1 because Samsung Galaxy Grand is already in the market offering everything which is offered by HTC E1 and that too at the comparable price. The specifications are of HTC E1 doesn’t seem to be much appealing specially when we already have Samsung Galaxy Grand which offer bigger screen size and better camera. Let us take on the hardware specs of this phone.
Specifications and Key Feature
First of all the looks, which is always better than Samsung phones because of the metallic feel of the body and then design at the back which circumferences the camera. Coming on to the screen then HTC E-1 has 4.3 inches of screen with WVGA display and Samsung Galaxy Grand also has the same quality of display but the screen size is bigger (5 inches). The battery backup in both the phones is same 2100mAh and I expect HTC E-1 to offer better battery backup due to the smaller screen used for the display.
