HTC Desire Eye vs HTC One (M8) Spec Shootout

by Sean P. Aune | October 8, 2014October 8, 2014 3:00 pm PDT

The new HTC Desire Eye borrows heavily from the HTC One (M8) when it comes to design, but there are a lot of differences once you get past there.

The Desire Eye is not about being a flagship phone in the traditional sense, but more about being a leader in smartphone photography. A 13MP camera on both the front and the rear should make sure there is no confusion there. These phones will both serve very different users, but should be a great choice no matter which one you pick up.

Check out the galleries and specs below and let us know what you think.
