Editor Notes

HTC Desire 816 was a popular model in 2014 and the HTC Desire 816G is a variant to this popular smartphone. One would be happy to notice that the newer variant is cheaper than the older one. There has been cost cutting in one or two essential elements like the number the cores have been doubled to eight but HTC has switched to a cheaper MediaTek processor as compared to a Snapdragon processor in the older variant, but this shouldn’t be a matter of concern. One more area where the newer model disappoints is that RAM has been reduced to 1GB. In the modern era of smartphones, 1GB RAM is the bare minimum for device to function appropriately. HTC Desire 816 has 1.5GB RAM whereas Samsung Galaxy E7 offers 2GB for roughly the same price. Lack of NFC (Near Field Communication) is another sign of cost cutting in the “G” variant. The good thing about the successor is that it comes with 16GB internal storage, which will help the device run smoothly even with a large number apps installed.

Both these devices have a 5.5 inch HD Display with a screen resolution of 1280x720 pixels, as a result of which it delivers a pixel density of 267PPI, which is average for a phone of this price range. For photography, both these smartphones are embedded with a 13 Megapixel camera sensor supported by flash. The 5 Megapixel front snapper is capable of taking good selfies. The phone is capable of recording Full HD videos from back as well as front camera. Both these beasts support Dual-SIM (two Nano SIMs). On the battery front, each of them is powered by 2600mAh battery which should be suffice to last for a day on a moderate usage, Desire 816 is expected to last longer since it has fewer number of cores. These devices run on Sense UI on top of Android KitKat out of the box and may receive the Lollipop update soon. Other common things that these include are Boom Sound Speakers, HTC BlinkFeed etc.
