Since the update is 1008.9 MB, a rather large file, make sure you have enough battery life and that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network to avoid incurring heavy data charges.
To recap, the HTC Desire Eye runs Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) out of the box. Specs include a Corning Gorilla Glass 3-protected 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (pixel density of 424 ppi), a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash, a 13-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera with dual-LED flash, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 128 GB), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with each core clocked at 2.3 GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2,400 mAh battery.
