Salient features of HTC Eye Experience include:

Split Capture: This feature lets users snap simultaneous photos/videos from both front and rear-side camera at same time.

Voice Selfie/Auto Selfie: As the name suggests, users can take selfies just by voice-command or in case of auto-mode, they just have to make a smile gesture to activate the camera. There is no need to use finger on the phone, just a smile gesture is enough to take a selfie.

Face Tracking: It gives closer views of up to four faces individually, so that users can see everyone more clearly. As long as the users' subject's face stays in frame, they will get a zoomed-in view as the subject moves around and another option, Screen Share allows the user to share the phone screen in real-time with others on a call. They can send files, photos and even videos on user's screen.

Live Make Up: This camera tool helps users make some skin tone adjustments without affecting the natural look to get a perfect selfie.

Face Fusion: This is photo editing tool, which lets users merge two people's face with hilarious results.

Photo Booth: This helps users capture 4 consecutive photos on a single image.

Crop Me In: This tool helps users to take a selfie and merge them with other scenic picture in the background.
