HTC Desire Eye Review

Desire Eye—Tough Time for Samsung:

Apple, Nokia and HTC are the staunch rivals of Samsung and giving it a tough time in the global smartphone market. It is because of the availability of these alternative gadgets that Samsung is going to lose over half of its profit in 2014. Once again, HTC has emerged with a challenge in the form of new HTC Desire Eye that features an amazingly large 5.2 inches display, a wide range of bands for the 4the generation LTE technology, quad core processing power, nano-SIM support and 13 MP primary as well as secondary camera. Available in red, blue and white body shades, it is packed with high capacity 2400 mAh battery for 538 hours of standby and 20 hours of talk time. Meanwhile, the 16 gigabyte built-in storage capacity can be supplemented with additional 128 gigabyte via the microSD card. Now let’s have a closer look at the pros and cons of the gadget which will be helpful while making a decision whether to buy HTC Desire Eye or not.

5.2" High Pixel Display Supported on a Slim Body:

The beauty of its slim & catchy body gets manifold when it is found to be accompanied by a 5.2 inches large capacitive touchscreen, supporting 16M colors and the amazing pixel density of 424 ppi (pixels per inch). There are also gadgets from the popular brands that support the pixel density of roughly over 100 for their supposedly large and attractive display. Turning to the body thickness, it measures merely 8.5 mm, thus giving a look of elegance and sophistication. At the same time, it is not only dust proof but also water resistant—capable of resisting damage for half an hour at the depth of 1 meter. Adding to the ease of portability, the smartphone measures just 154 grams in overall body weight. You will also be enjoying the awesome HTC Sense 6 user interface which aptly responds to multitouch gestures.

Output of Improved Android OS and Quad Core CPU:

Purchased against reasonable HTC Desire Eye price in Pakistan, the smartphone offers the combined brilliance of Android’s latest KitKat platform and quad core Krait 400 processor, running at the speed of 2.3 GHz. Obviously, complex multitasking would be totally hassle free and prove to be a great fun. Owing to the fleeting speeds, you will be able to save a lot of your precious time, which in turn can be utilized for other fruitful activities. For improving the graphics quality, there is a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) with advanced Adreno 330 technology. The GLONASS A-GPS accomplishment is meant to bring high precision in the results about your location anywhere on the globe.

13MP & Dual LED Flash—For Both Primary and Secondary:

Here lies the real amazement for the potential buyers in the form of 13MP secondary camera. It must have been in your observation that even the most expensive Apple gadgets have a shooter on the front with resolution not more than 2 megapixels. In HTC’s reasonably priced latest release, you will be overjoyed to find that both the front and back cameras bring you the potential of 13MP and also support the other modern features of autofocus and dual LED flash. As a consequence, your experience of video calling would be far better than ever before.

Summing Up:

Though every single feature of the HTC Desire Eye is just superb, the boosting of the secondary camera up to unprecedented 13MP is particularly outstanding. So, the experience of video calling would bring your loved ones further closer to you. The memory support of up to 144 gigabytes would provide you with more than just enough storage space for the accommodation of all of your personal and professional data, including the HD videos of the precious moments of your life. The assistance of the 2.3 GHz quad core CPU by 2 GB of RAM is also something very promising regarding performance. It is also worth noticing that the smartphone has high quality stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers, so that you may have an improved entertainment. The band range for the 4G LTE mobile communication technology is much wider than that of other rival phones. Regarding cellular services, you would have to get satisfied only with the single nano-SIM as dual SIM support is absent. Having gone through all the pluses and negatives of the gadget, you would be in a better position to make a decision regarding its purchase. Wishing you the best of luck!
