Editor Notes

Both these devices are mid-range smartphones. The design of both these devices are inspired from the flagships from their stable. The HTC Desire 816 has dual frontal speakers and the aluminium body has been replaced by a plastic one. Xperia M2 Dual has a design that resembles the Z series. The Desire 816 bears a bigger 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels, having a moderate pixel density of 267PPI, which should deliver fair sharpness and crispness. On the hand, Sony Xperia M2 Dual features a 4.8 inch qHD display with a resolution of 960x540 pixels, which translates into a lower pixel density of 230 PPI. Under the hood, there is a 1.6GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1.5 GB of RAM, which should smoothly run the Desire 816. Xperia M2 Dual sports a little slower 1.2GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and has 1GB RAM. On the memory front, Desire 816 flaunts an internal memory of 8GB which can be expanded upto 128GB by using high capacity microSD cards. The XPERIA M2 also has the same internal capacity but supports memory cards upto 32GB only.

Desire 816 has a higher-resolution 13 rear megapixel camera and a 5 megapixel secondary camera while Xperia M2 has a 8 megapixel rear camera and a VGA (0.3 MP) front facing camera. Both can record Full HD videos. The physically bigger HTC smartphone has a bigger 2600mAh battery whereas the relatively smaller XPERIA bears a 2300mAh battery. Connectivity options are the same, both have NFC and LTE support but Xperia M2 which has been released in India does not support 4G. Desire 816 has BoomSound and BlinkFeed which makes it more appealing.

Baba’ Pick — HTC Desire 816 is better on many counts to the XPERIA M2. Grand 2 and Moto X are good alternatives if you want a slightly smaller device.
