Reviews for the HTC One M8 Eye

80% HTC One (M8 Eye) Review: The Better Flagship Contender
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The HTC One (M8 Eye) is available for a shade under Rs. 35,000, which is a good Rs. 5,000 less than its predecessor. The main differentiating factor is its camera, and after using it extensively we are convinced that it performs equally well, if not better than the UltraPixel camera, at least in normal light conditions. But note that this new model doesn't have infrared, which might or might not be a big deal-breaker for users.

The HTC One M8 Eye doesn't offer anything new apart from the new 13MP dual-lens camera. However it still comes with the elegant metal body, a great touchscreen display and a powerful performance package. The updated camera doesn't impress as the overall quality is the same apart from the resolution. A worthy update? Nope. However, this was probably what HTC should have launched as the original One M8.
