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 Apart from this, the looks are similar to HTC One, just that the aluminum body has been replaced by a plastic one but the dual frontal speakers have been retained.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.

The life of the phone is decent. I've been using it for more than 3 yrs now. It's durable, quite resistant to breakage from falling. The price hasn't dropped much from the time I bought it. Overall it's good, but causes a lot of problems now. It has become slow, lags, and the pre-installed apps leaves you with very less internal memory to rely on.
The Good
  • Good Camera
  • Decent interface
  • Durable
The Bad
  • It's an old launch and may not compete with the new devices that have come now. A few extra thousands could get you a better device.

HTC desire 816 is a good phone with an impressive sound output that is a plus point. Dedicated microSD card slot is a feature that is generally missing nowadays with hybrid sim slot. Battery backup on the other hand is average.
The Good
  • Glossy body
  • Sound output
The Bad
  • Average battery life
  • No 4G connectivity

This phone comes with an attractive premium design body with curved edges to give an exceptional feel in hands, but the back of the phone is glossy and gets easily scratched. Camera is good even in low lighting conditions.
The Good
  • Good camera in low light conditions
  • Both earphone and speakers deliver powerful sound with bass
  • Supports OTG cable
The Bad
  • No screen protection
  • Video calling not supported
  • No 4G slot
