HTC One M8 is currently powered by full version of Sense 6 however the Sense 6 available for HTC One M7 is not exactly the same full version. Advanced DuoCamera effects and Motion Gestures are absent in the version of Sense 6 available for HTC One M7 and it’s because of the hardware limitations per HTC source.
