A Review Of The HTC Desire Eye


Water and dust proof phones are all the rage these days, you’d think humans are aquatic or live in sandstorms.  However, phone makers are spinning off this and creating their phones to cater to this water loving crowd. Don’t get me wrong, this water and dustproof feature helps you when you accidentally spill something on or drop your phone on a dusty path.

So HTC has the HTC Desire Eye, mainly for selfie lovers, which comes with a 13MP front camera! Previously we (I) could blame our (my) phone for the bad selfies, even daring to just flip the phone, set a timer and take a selfie with the better rear camera. Not anymore.
