HTC Desire 816 Features

HTC Desire 816 is essentially a phablet featuring a 5.5 inches screen (1280x720 pixels) with a pixel density of 267PPI, which should deliver reasonable sharpness. Under the hood there is a 1.6GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1.5 GB of RAM (it’s the same chip as the Moto G). The inbuilt 8GB memory can be expanded up to 128GB via high-capacity microSD cards.

In terms of camera, there is a 13 megapixel rear camera with flash while a 5 megapixel front camera for video calling and selfies. Since this is a mid-range device, HTC has not used the UltraPixel technology which is used in other flagship devices like the One. The camera is capable of recording Full HD videos at a resolution of 1080p. Apart from this, the looks are similar to HTC One, just that the aluminum body has been replaced by a plastic one but the dual frontal speakers have been retained. BlinkFeed and BoomSound are also available on this device, which adds to its utility.

The phone runs on the latest Android v4.4 KitKat, wrapped under the HTC's Sense User Interface. There is a non-removable 2600mAh battery which should juice this device for a day. The HTC Desire 816 is available in White, Grey & Orange colour.
