With a large, 5-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution IPS display, the One E8 is well-positioned to deliver a great user experience, as image reproduction is crisp thanks to those excellent 441 pixels per inch.

Our daylight images would benefit from a tad more brightness and contrast for example, as would our interior still life shot likewise benefit from an application of the HTC's built-in filter in the Google Play version.
