Awesome phone for a good price.
This is the second HTC phone I've owned and it won't be the last. It's fast enough to do everything you need. I've never had any bugs. The screen is great. It's light and the battery lasts me at least 2 days on a charge but generally I'll get 3 days out of it if I let it run right down. HTC does the best speakers on phones and it's not even close.
The only negative is the camera isn't very good. At all. It struggles in low light and the focus is very touchy. It's still way better than my friends HTC One M7 camera, though.
best mid range phone
Fabulous looks , excellent both front and rear cameras , good battery life awesome performance . Only con is internal memory available just 3.9 gb out of 8 bt overall awesome ....
It's good, can be better!
The Desire 816 definitely has a terrific display screen, a nice upgrade coming from a 4.7 screen. The phone does take good pictures, both indoors and out, have not experienced bad performance as others has stated. Even when looking at the pics from the gallery, the pics are really sharp. All other aspects of the phone performs well. But there are a couple of dislikes...
The brightness of the display leaves much to be desired. At its highest setting, it is difficult to see things outdoors, whether it's sunny or cloudy. Indoors, the display is nice to look at. The battery life is another drawback since it depletes rather quickly when surfing the net or playing card games. What helps a little is turning off the WiFi and GPS functions when they aren't needed.
All in all, for the price, the HTC Desire 816 is a worthy investment and performs well to my expectations.
Camera and battery backup is not good .
I am using this phone since last 2 months and everything seems to be fine except for camera shutter speed which needs little improvement. If use wisely battery may last for 24 hours, else a must charge after 12 hours.
Very Good Smartphone.... working excellent.. But there is no file manager which is a main application for a smartphone. Other high end htc mobiles are getting updates for their apps like camera, lock screen etc. but HTC ignoring this for D816. I have purchased this phone @Rs.25,600/- but there is no dot view facility in this smartphone.
The camera quality is SO POOR. My last phone was 8mp and it takes better pictures than this phone. My indoor pictures are SO grainy and not at all clear and a huge disappointment, nothing like a 13mp. Very disappointed with that because the camera is the deal breaker and after buying I regret it. Also the battery isn't that great.
Worst Phone with the worst battery life
The battery does not last even for 2 hrs and even on standby with power saver on I am lucky that it may last for the whole day.
Camera is woefully bad.
battery life ad sensor
