HTC Desire 816 Description


HTC has every person's attention in the smartphone world with its flagship device One M8. But it knows that it will still have to achieve certain market share and the One M8 alone won't do much good in that respect. So HTC went back to updating its Desire lineup and the first update came in the form of Desire 816. It sports a similar look as the One Max which was introduced back in 2013.


HTC Desire 816 comes with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB RAM. The phone breaches the phablet territory, but just, with its 5.5-inch screen which has display resolution of 720x1280 pixels. The phone comes packed with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and since its is 4G-ready, it should survive at least two more major OS updates before needing a replacement. The phone comes with 8GB internal storage with microSD slot expansion option, and can boost storage space up to 64GB. There is a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front of Desire 816. A 2600mAh battery has been tasked with powering the device and all its hardware and peripherals.


The HTC Desire 816 is a promising device which packs a lot of punch for the price it charges. HTC has also emphasised on improving the form factor of all its devices and it shows on Desire 816 at least. But it faces in-house competition from the One M7, which incidentally was declared Phone of the Year by almost every critic on this planet in 2013. The One M7 still costs a pretty buck and more premium over what this device charges, but look at what you get - a world-beating phone which is just as good at performing as it is at showing off. At this price point, muster few more bucks and you can get a Google Nexus 5, which is still a hot property.
