The midrange beast...
proud owner of a Desire 816 4G..awesome performance battery runs up to 2 days as a heavy surfer I'm loving it, standard camera but most important thing the device runs smooth even when using more than 10 apps simultaneously just a couple of lags though, main thing no inbuilt file manager (hoping for an update) NFC optional (doesn't work on my device).... keep up the good work, and make sure to work on the improvements...
Doesn't upload photos in Facebook.due to low memory.
This device has good camera, speaker, display but it lacks many great features which are scene in other HTC phone
Double tap to awake
file manager( 3rd party apps will not work in 4.4)
updates to latest apps ie., no update 4 camera, lock screen,and soo on
And the most hated thing is that HTC didn't provide lollipop update for this device in India, when HTC provided for rest of the countries
As my 9 months experience I recommend this device 4 it's performance,and not for software support from HTC ( meant for Indian users )
I had made a very big mistake in my life that i had buyed a htc desire 816 dual sim, I am waiting from january for Android lollipop but still there is no update for htc desire 816 ( 19 April 2015 ), All the brands like samsung, sony get this lollipop update in there handset in the last week of the month of feb. In the future i will not buy.
Phone is Great
-Very great phone
-Nice Screen Size
-Runs Fast& Smooth
the HTC 816 is great it plays most games and films look good also the colour and lighting is again great . One drawback is it get so hot when on charge and watching films . Let's hope lollipop comes soon...
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 .
