The Desire Eye smartphone comes with not one but two 13MP cameras. The rear camera comes with an F2.0 aperture and 28mm equivalent focal length while the front module captures its images with a marginally slower F2.2 aperture but wider 22mm focal length. Both cameras have a dual-LED flash and are capable of shooting HDR images and 1080p video.

Cameras and polycarbonate body aside the specification is very similar to the aluminum-made flagship phone HTC One M8. The screen measures 5.2 inches and offers a 1080p resolution, and the device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor that is clocked at 2.3 GHz. In terms of memory there are 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which can be expanded via a microSD-slot.

On the software side of things Android 4.4.4 is running the show and the new “Eye experience” software suite adds new features to the camera. This includes an auto selfie feature, which automatically captures an image once the device has been held steady for a couple seconds, and voice commands. “Say Cheese” will take a picture and “Action” start recording video. The double camera feature shoots both front and back images at the same time and puts them side-by-side to compose a single image. There is also a function to cut out the photographer from a front camera shot and insert them into the image that has been captured with the rear camera.
