I bought it 2010 and i've been using it since then. I didn't have any problems with it and i've been using it for almost all of my tasks. Nowdays i'm using it as a wifi modem.
terrible, terrible phone. The only reason I got stuck with it was that my old, reliable Samsung got smashed to bits and I needed a new phone for work ASAP. HTC Desire was the only one I could walk away with for free on my plan. That was in Oct. 2015. First issue: my cheek switches the phone onto airplane mode when I'm in a call. Unforgivable behaviour for a phone. And since Dec I've been having battery life problems (some days it drains in about four hours even with the phone on airplane mode and me not using it AT ALL, other days it's fine despite me browsing for hours) and now it has switched itself off (despite 70% battery power) and refuses to reboot. I'm told this is a common software issue. If I had the money for a new phone I would run this one over with my car.
I bought Htc Desire cellphn worth Rs. 24k.. it worked well for first 8 mnths. Aftr that It started showing me camera error..n later systm error.. it strtd switching off.. ultimately it was cmpltly dead.. i contcted the sellr.. he sent me to servic cntr.. n my phn was sent to the compny.. compny took all its intrnal parts as well as screen and gav me an invc of repairs worth rs 20k.. it was undr warranty.. n now my phn is nothn bt a garbage.. most most worst phn n worst company ever.. do no purchase these cellphones othrwise u will regret..
well there if you have problems with this model, most likely it is a hardware bug. mine had it and I send it htc and they repaired it without cost. of course this was four years ago and since then no problems.
very capable phone after 5 years. Is there any reasons for me to replace my desire?
I had bought HTC desire 620 model , it was worked fine 1st 5month after that it was hanging,and getting switched off, and here I observed without (data)network it is working , once we opening net or data on , it suddenly getting hanging or switched off , phone dialer not working when is net on , once switched off net or data , then it takes time 10 to 15minutes for phone recover, I went service center they did software change , then it was worked fine one week, then again same problem repeat so kindly suggest what Will do, it was 7months old,
I bought mine at the end of the march 2010 and I am still using it :D I ve accidentaly dropped it many times, but mobile still holds together. I must admint that the construction is really solid. So far without any covers, the screen is as good as new, almost no scratches. Battery is relatively in a good shape. It can power the phone for about 20h with wifi and a day and half without. I have custom rom with app2sd (it was the only way how to overcome phones small internal memory) and about 100 apps installed. No lags noticed =D
I am using htc derise 500,i bought it in jan 2014 ..........this phone offers a lot of issues both software and hardward, .........its a costly non functioning phone, ..........i suggest new buyers never to buy htc phones
I found the build quality good. It is a reliable, responsive & all round great phone for a 3g smart phone of it's era
The product quality of HTC 820G+ is poor. The mobile phone resets every 4 to 6 weeks.
The Service from HTC is awfully poor. It is better not to buy HTC products.
The worst experience of life.bought htc desire 626G plus 4 months back.withon 3 months of purchase developed charging issues.swutches off on its own and then doesnot restart for next 10-12 hrs.wrote to chairman,ceo,coo.noresult.really shameless company.lodging complaint in consumer court.ll not let them make customers look like hapless fools.
Never ever buy htc smart phones. I was using Samsung S4 then some of my frnz asked me to use htc Ii bought new desire phone 820G plus one of the worst phone I have ever used in my life. Even I can say Nokia's old phones were much much better then htc. Samsung is also the best smart phone. htc company is horrible and its smart phones sucks. Guys dont ever use htc if u want to use android then go for samsung or even i can say u can buy any cheap andrpid phone you will never regret. BUT HTC IS ONE OF THE WORST COMPANY.
Sarathi, 03 Jan 2016Hi friends I have a HTC desire 816 g. Cost is Rs. 18000. Specifications are not worth... moreIt's because you're using it in 2016 & it's outdated. All the apps nowadays using new Android version. Go buy a new updated phone & stop saying it's not worth it just to save your money.
I have a HTC desire 816 g.
Cost is Rs. 18000.
Specifications are not worth and mobile get very slow and hanging problem also
But stylish look and super design
Some problems here
So think and buy an other models
The Staff and the Technician not trained. in spite of me giving my phone for 5 time they where not able to find out the actual problem. HTC 820 S
The phone are kept inside for three days and returned to the customer saying that the work is done.
But the truth is They don't even touch the phone.
Will never buy any HTC product and will recommend the same to all my friend.
