HTC Desire Eye benchmark scores:

HTC Desire Eye is a 5.2-inches smartphone with quite a giant 13-megapixel front camera making the device best choice for selfie lovers. However, if you were wondering that just because there are two crazy good cameras, the device would lack something otherwise, you surely were at err or so tell the first HTC Desire Eye benchmark scores. Before we go forward the HTC Desire Eye benchmark results from GeekBench, AnTuTu and more, here are the detailed specs of the smartphone which, as you can notice, look a lot like those of HTC One M8, the flagship:

  • 5.2-inches 1080 x 1920 IPS LCD display
  • 151.7 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3 GHz quad core processing chip
  • 13-megapixel front camera
  • 13-megapixel rear shooter
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage along with microSD slot
  • 2,400 mAh battery
  • Front-facing BoomSound speakers
  • IPX7 water-resistant (the device can survive in up to 1 meter of water for as long as 30 minutes)
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 6 UI on top

As you can see, HTC Desire Eye is lacking nowhere when it comes to hardware specs. Not only is it debuting water-resistance for HTC, but also carries all the good SoC and memory powers of One M8. The battery of Eye is little smaller than the flagship, however, the device does good otherwise. While we will know better once the device is in market on how well does it exactly perform in real life, here are some preliminary HTC Desire Eye benchmark scores thanks to Phone Arena. The device surely scores some good results especially on the GeekBench where it has scored better than the high-end flagship Samsung Galaxy S5. In anyway, these benchmark can be a little tricky considering model devices are a little different than the end product, which might even be better for all we know. The device does a little bad at AnTuTu which could be thanks to unfinished software, as point the folks at PA.
