HTC Desire Eye Description

  • High internal storage expansion limit
  • Cameras
  • Powerful hardware
  • Needs to lose the plastics
  • Could use a price cut
  • Sketchy battery life

A lot is talked about the kind of camera put up on a smartphone and how good is it when it comes to clicking photos or videos. Till now, the rear camera took all the centre stage in this war of optics but no more. HTC aimed at changing the entire realm of mobile optics by introducing a big camera not just at the back but at the front. What is the smartphone called? HTC prefers to call it the Desire EYE.


The HTC Desire EYE runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and has been geared up for the next big Android OS upgrade as well. There is 16GB internal storage available on the Desire EYE and it can be expanded further up to 128GB using a microSD card. A 2.3GHz quad-core processor has been put up on the Desire EYE, along with 2GB RAM. There is a 5.2-inch screen on Desire EYE which puts out display resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. A 2400mAH battery powers the HTC Desire EYE and has been rated to deliver up to 20 hours of talktime. A 13-megapixel camera has been put on the back and a 13-megapixel camera (yes, you read it right) can be found on the front of Desire EYE.


HTC has taken a different way to make its smartphones stand out from the rest of the crowd. A 13-megapixel front camera is unheard of, no matter how many times it is mentioned. On top of that, every technical spec mentioned about the Desire EYE is enough for us to consider this smartphone as the next flagship device from HTC, though the smartphone maker my surprise us yet again, like it did with the One M7. At least we know what we would ask for from a flagship device when we go shopping for one. The HTC One M7 gave us a ton of reasons why we should ask for better things from smartphone makers and the Desire EYE continues the trend. We would recommend this device hands down.
