HTC Desire Eye to get a surprising update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
It looks like the One M8 isn't the only HTC smartphone of 2014 that's getting an official update to Android Marshmallow. According to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, it's been "confirmed" that the Desire Eye would also get Marshmallow (Android 6.0.1) with Sense 7.0 UI. While there's no word on exactly when Desire Eye owners should expect to receive the update, it should happen "later this year."

Introduced in late 2014 with Android 4.4 KitKat on board, the Desire Eye currently runs Android Lollipop with Sense 6.0 UI, following an update released in the summer of 2015.

The HTC Desire Eye is available in many parts of the world, including in the US, where AT&T is selling it starting at $9.34 per month, or $279.99 outright.

As you may have heard until now, Android Marshmallow brings significant improvements over Lollipop, including longer battery life (thanks to what Google is calling Doze mode), Now on Tap (offering contextual information based on what's on your screen), individual app permissions, and so on. As for the HTC Desire Eye, you can find out more about the smartphone by reading our review of it.

It is not a bad phone. It is actually the same as the M8 minus metal and with better cameras and waterproofing.

I'm an owner of this phone and yes it's not a bad phone at all, just needs more storage (16gb but merely 8gb accessible) and no 4K recording or OIS, everything else is badass..

Not sure if you're an Apple fanboy, or just a hater who is trying to generate more Apple hate by trolling Android.
