Editor Notes

The HTC Desire 820 and the Samsung Galaxy A7 have similar specifications with minor differences. Each of them have a 5.5 inch display but they sport different screen resolutions. Desire 820 has a resolution 1280x720 pixels with a pixel density of 267PPI, while the Galaxy A7 flaunts a Super AMOLED Display with a screen resolution of 1920x1080 pixels (Full HD) and translates into a whopping pixel density of 401PPI. Thus the screen on the Galaxy A7 is crisper and better. These beasts are powered by the same 64 Bit Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. There is 2GB RAM on board for smooth multi-tasking and gaming on the two devices. For internal memory the devices have 16GB of storage which can be expanded using a microSD card . Both of them are Dual-SIM phones.

For photography, the duo sport a 13 Megapixel camera which should be capable of stunning shots. The 5 Megapixel front snapper is good enough for selfies and video calling. Although the camera resolution is same in both these devices, there might be a difference in image quality considering the fact that these belong to different brands and hence there might be some variation. On the connectivity front, both these devices support 4G connectivity but HTC Desire lacks NFC (Near Field Communication) which Samsung Galaxy A7 has. Desire 820 also lacks FM radio but it has Beats Audio and Front facing stereo speakers for music enthusiasts. The 2600mAh battery in both these devices is sufficient to power them for a day.

The main decisive factor is software. Although both of them are Android devices, the software and appearance is way different. So if you are used to using HTC BlinkFeed and other such exclusive HTC services then obviously Desire 820 is a better option. But if want better after-sales service then Samsung can be slightly better pick since it has a larger number if service centres across the subcontinent.
