HTC Desire EYE Reviews


"The 5.2-inch display on the Desire EYE is both bright and colourful. It doesn’t have the prowess of the LG G3’s QHD screen, but the 1080p resolution is sharp enough for all but the most observant pixel peepers. Text looks crisp and clear – the big screen is a pleasure to use for browsing the web or ..."

"If you're looking for a device that takes amazing photos from either side - front or back - this is that device. If you want one of the most unique smartphones on the market today - you've got it here in the EYE."

"Both the front and the back camera of the HTC Desire Eye delivered stellar performance, which harks back to the days when the company was among the leaders in image quality. The Eye Experience suite by HTC on the other hand ensures that the capable imaging hardware is utilized well."

"Performance is smooth, with the One's Snapdragon 801 returning. Battery life is ... solid: it dropped 13 percent per hour in our video streaming test (with brightness set at 75 percent). That's a bit shorter than the One M8 lasted in the same test, but at least it has the One's Extreme Power Saving ..."

"After 10 hours of intermittent, but sometimes heavy use, downloading and installing apps, running benchmarks, taking photos, and playing a few rounds of Plants vs. Zombies 2, battery life was below 30 percent. If your days last longer than about 14 hours, you’re probably going to need to recharge at..."

"Using the HTC Desire Eye with just one hand is very tricky and I couldn't reach my thumb across to the other side of the screen while typing. The silver lining to that problem is that because the Desire Eye has a solid, waterproof chassis, I didn't feel any need to add extra bulk with a shell or cas..."

"This hardware combination plays out pretty good for the Desire EYE, which shows almost no signs of lag even when heavier tasks need to be processed at hand. The multitasking capabilities of the phone are adequate, too."

"HTC's signature BoomSound speakers are here, though audio isn't quite as powerful as what the M8 puts out. They're almost impossible to spot thanks to some pretty clever engineering work. "

"...the 5.2-inch screen is a Full HD beast, to match most flagship rivals. The 1080x1920 resolution gives 424 pixels-per-inch (ppi) so photos look crisp and clean and movies are just as gorgeous."

"Although its flash-equipped front camera is eye-catching, its image results aren't as impressive as I'd hoped. Still, the flash will illuminate your face where other phones can't, and the Desire Eye comes with fun software, is well-specced and waterproof too."

"The powerful front camera really makes all the difference when you're taking selfies. Colors looked bold and details sharp, and that goes for both the subject of the selfie and his or her background. I could use the Live Makeup tool to smooth out my complexion; my skin never looked better! "
