HTC Desire EYE (2GB,16GB)
That’s not to knock it, though. HTC’s found a way of creating two tones of plastic from a single piece. The Desire EYE comes with a crisp line distinguishing the unibody back from its sides. It’s seamless and gives the EYE a fresh and funky look. The polycarbonate feels premium, too. A slight soft-touch finish gives the back some grip and warmth without feeling in any way tacky and means it’s also hard wearing. In the weeks we’ve had the Desire EYE in our pocket with other, metal, phones it hasn’t gotten marked one bit.
As with all soft-touch plastic plastic, the HTC does show up greasy finger marks more than a metal phone does. Because the plastic is a bit harder than the likes of the Nexus 5’s, it does so to a lesser degree.
The button positions are less of a success. The power, volume rocker and dedicated camera buttons feel flimsy and almost flush with the body. Pressing them doesn’t inspire confidence and they’re tricky to use by feel alone. We found ourselves checking the screen to make sure a button press had the desired effect. It’s a shame and the only build quality issue we discovered on what is otherwise a well-made phone.
The nano-SIM and microSD trays on the left edge feel more solid, are easy to access and stay closed thanks to a small rubber seal.
There’s a reason for these seals, and perhaps why the buttons are so vague. The HTC Desire EYE is water resistant for 30 minutes in up to 1m of the wet stuff, making this a phone you can enjoy with your rubber ducky come bath time.
