HTC Desire Eye vs Apple iPhone 6 vs LG G3: specs comparison

HTC Desire Eye vs Apple iPhone 6 vs LG G3: specs comparison
There's only one thing the HTC Desire Eye, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, and LG G3 all have in common - they are some of this year's most interesting smartphones. Otherwise, they are pretty different. Here's the HTC Desire Eye - if you look at it as a souped-up HTC One (M8) with a larger screen and much better cameras, it makes plenty of sense. But describing it this way would be so prosaic! This is the first all-out "selfie phone" - one that captures your smiling mug in the glory of a full 13MP resolution photo taken through its front camera. You can print a full-size billboard with your face on it!

The Apple iPhone 6 is still the aluminum-clad charmer the iPhone has been since its fourth generation. Only this time, it's grown bigger and meaner - it has a 64-bit processor and a 4.7-inch display which doesn't seem much compared to Desire Eye's 5.2-inch, or the LG G3's 5.5-inch diagonals, but it's still enough screen real estate to excite every iPhone 5/5s upgrader out there.

And what about the LG G3? The South Korean spec monster won't stop rearing its head anytime soon, thanks to its combination of fast hardware, mind-blowingly sharp 5.5-inch QHD display, and efficient, palm-friendly design. Once you see it, you cannot not remember it. It's one of the best Android phones to have come out this year, and a well-deserved breakout success for LG.
