HTC produces series of videos about its Eye Experience
Besides introducing its HTC Desire EYE "selfie" phone, and the HTC RE action camera, last week the manufacturer also introduced a new series of features that together is called the Eye Experience. These features not only come out of the box with the Desire EYE, they will be sent out as an update to some of HTC's most recent phones. In fact, the international HTC One (M8) is already receiving the update as part of a bump to Android 4.4.4.

HTC has produced a series of tutorial videos, showing how to use the Eye Experience features on your HTC device. For example, with Face Tracking enabled in the middle of a video chat, the person you are in a conversation with will see a more focused view of you. If more people come into the view of the camera on the other end of the conversation, you will see the screen split into equal size boxes so that you can view as many as four people at the same time. And the focus will remain on the face of any of those four if they move. With Screen Share, you can show someone on the other end of a video chat, exactly what is on your screen. This comes in handy when you want to show someone some recent photos you've taken of your precious cat. It can also be used when you want to teach someone how to use their phone.

With Auto Selfie, you can now set up the front-facing camera to take a selfie when you smile, keep your face still until the white focus box turns green, or when you say "cheese" or "capture". And if you're shooting a selfie video, just say "action" to get the camera going. Split Capture allows you to create a split screen image. You can even set this up for you to comment using the front camera, about something being captured on the rear camera.

With Live Makeup, you can adjust how smooth your skin looks before taking a selfie. Once your are satisfied with your look, smile and the picture will be snapped. And with Face Fusion, you merge your face with someone else to see what you would look like with a kisser blended with the features of another.
The devices receiving the Eye Experience suite include the HTC One (M8), HTC One (M7), HTC One (E8), HTC One mini, HTC One mini 2, HTC One max, HTC Desire 816, HTC Desire 820 and the HTC Butterfly 2. You can get a head start on learning how to work the new features by viewing the video tutorials embedded in the slideshow below!

At least these videos are much better and more informative than Htc's previous attempts at new product launch Ads like the 'Blah Blah' one for m8.

I think this phone will sell well, the good iSight camera can be useful to many girls that take selfies photos for Facebook, Instead of standing in front of a mirror now they have the HTC eye... For the rest of us the company will go bankrupt if they keep making such BS phones ..

yeah.. buying phone just for a camera is not worthy... there should be other standing out features as well... note 4 for me, for having great multi tasking capabilities, removable battery and super accurate super amoled

So I am guessing all of you bashing HTC to death for its not amazing M8 back camera was pointless since people dont care that much? Open your Facebook and let me know how many freaking selfies you see, snapchat and other platforms. You got your answer why this is a good idea.

I find it stupid and amusing how HTC never listened (to consumers and critics) after the M7 camera took them 2 years to finally realize their mistake??? The original M8 could've been a killer! now it's a tad late again

I agree. I would have considered HTC if it wasn't for that pathetic attempt of with the UltraPixel nonsense. In fact, they were so stupid doing it TWICE and putting it in the M8...WHY HTC??????!!!!!!

Or just HTC NPD for short: Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and to others in the process. It is estimated that this condition affects one percent of the population. (Wikipedia) At least HTC has a real market for this device -- 1% of the population! Lol!

With some snazzy marketing they might even make that 2%.
