HTC Desire 826 is a premium looking device from HTC launched after mere 2 months after launching the HTC Desire 820. We would have called it a successor but HTC decided not to forfeit the Desire 820 for giving buyers a middle range phone between the Desire 816G and the 826. For about Rs. 4000 more you will be catered to a better 13 megapixels selfie camera, 1080p display with 400 PPI, different aesthetics and a slightly faster processor. Thats about it!
The changes in the display is not with respect to the size, but the resolution being bumped to 1080p on the Desire 826 means that it will give quality which will be much better than what the Desire 820 churns out at 720p. You will notice the quality if you watch lots of movies on the go. Desire 820 is not too bad for general usage like photo or web browsing.
The Desire 826 offers the same 13 megapixel camera like the Desire 820 . It too fetches large sized selfies that wont be affected much when you upload them on social media or give you freedom to crop out photobombers. In terms of software it brings us Sense UI on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Desire 826 has an upper hand here as it ships with a newer Sense UI 7 with Android 5.0 Lollipop whereas the Desire 820 will be running Android 4.4 with Sense UI 6 out of the box. There will be an update available soon, so no worries to the people looking to save some money by buying the Desire 820.
Going by the product photos of HTC Desire 826, if you are thinking that the signature BoomSound speakers are gone, then you are wrong. Desire 826 cleverly hides them above the top and bottom of the display. So neither of them will disappoint in the multimedia department. Both phones are running on a Snapdragon Octa-core chipset. The 820 is marginally slower at 1.5GHz whereas the 826 has a 1.7GHz clock speed. It wont make much of a difference as its only a few hertz apart. Both the phones have 2GB of RAM which will let users do multitasking. Internal storage remains the same at 16GB with 128GB expansion with a microSD slot. And the battery is the same as well - 2600 mAh , non-removable.
You can save a lot if you are not into pixel peeping, as the Desire 826 will only give you a bigger resolution in the similar screen size. Internals are almost the same and there wont be any performance difference, both are a stunning multimedia performers.
