HTC has introduced many interesting smartphones in the market.
Most of these gadgets have quite a few exciting features when compared to those offered by smartphone manufacturers. Sometimes, HTC even goes out of the way to make sure that each of its smartphones outdoes its previous releases in as many ways as possible. The HTC One Remix and the HTC One M8 Eye are two such attention-grabbing smartphones that are worth making a comparison. Ironically a cursory glance at these two smartphones makes you feel that these devices are identical in every way. However, they do have their fair share of differences. While the HTC One Remix came into the market in July 2014, the HTC One M8 Eye made its appearance a few months later. The HTC One Remix is not as expensive as the HTC One M8 Eye although both of them can definitely not be classified under the budget smartphones category.
Dimensions, Weight and Design
The HTC One Remix is a little smaller than the HTC One M8 Eye in terms of length and width, but is the thicker of the two smartphones. The Remix smartphone is also lighter than the M8 Eye smartphone when held in the hand, with a weight difference of 20 grams or slightly more. The two smartphones sport the typical rectangular candy bar design with slightly rounded corners.
Verdict: If what you want is a smartphone that is easy to operate when you hold it, HTC’s Remix smartphone is likely to be the better choice because of its more compact size and less weight.
While the HTC One Remix smartphone has a 4.5-inch screen with the Super LCD2 display technology, the HTC One M8 Eye smartphone features a Super LCD3 display 5-inch screen. The Remix smartphone encompasses a pixel resolution and pixel density of 720 x 1280 and 326ppi, respectively, as against the 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and 441ppi pixel density offered by the M8 Eye smartphone. Additionally, the display screens of the HTC smartphones house a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 scratch-resistant glass and provide 16 million colors.
Verdict: As far as the display clarity and sharpness are concerned, the two smartphones even out. This is because although the pixel resolution and pixel density in the HTC One Remix are lesser than that of the HTC One M8 Eye, its screen size is also proportionately smaller. However, for a better viewing experience such as for viewing web pages, the big size screen of the HTC One M8 Eye proves to be more beneficial.
The rear primary camera in HTC’s Remix smartphone is a 13MP camera with single LED flash and 4128 x 3096 pixel resolution. While the M8 Eye depicts the same pixel resolution, the rear camera is a duo 13MP camera with a dual-tone dual LED flash. The rear cameras also showcase identical features that comprise autofocus, HDR, geo-tagging, smile and face detection and panorama. While the Remix camera records 1080p@60fps and 720p@120fps videos, the M8 Eye camera records 1080p@30fps, 720p@60fps and HDR videos. The front secondary 5MP camera in HTC’s smartphones can record 1080p@30fps videos.
Verdict: Although the HTC One M8 Eye matches the HTC One Remix in every aspect, it can prove to be a superior option in terms of camera functionality. This is because the rear camera can additionally record images and videos at the same time. Moreover, the front camera can also record HDR videos.
Hardware & Software
The HTC One Remix smartphone includes 1.5GB RAM with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, clocking at 1.2GHz and an Adreno 305 graphics processor. In comparison, the HTC One M8 Eye smartphone is equipped with 2GB RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz and an Adreno 330 graphics processor. The two smartphones carry 16GB of internal storage and allow 128GB of external storage.
With respect to the software, both smartphones function on Android’s latest KitKat powered by the HTC Sense 6 UI.
Verdict: With enhanced hardware configuration, the HTC One M8 Eye, without doubt, renders smoother and faster experience than the HTC One Remix.
