Vinititu, 28 Apr 2015I just bought the HTC desire 826 couple of days back after extensive research. I was consideri... moreHi, I do like your content about HTC d826, It's the only smartphone brand I've used, and still am, since 2012. But my current one is quite old as you very well understand, there are some issues with my model, HTC wildfire S, but in spite of all those I just love it and would want my next phone to be HTC only. But all the other reviews here are very mixed and confusing, so I don't know what to do. What I want to know is if this phone runs smoothly and without lags? Even after a period of usage? Is the space enough, cause it shows only 8/16gb is available. How bad is it when in direct sunlight? Totally dark? I'll be more than happy if the battery lasts 12 hrs. And nowhere does it say that the screen has gorilla glass. I used a model at the store a while and really liked it. But as it is 25k I don't want to be frivolous about spending it.
Not sure about whether it applies to 615 / octacore chipsets. But if you want to save battery life, there is one setting you could change which would significantly reduce batter usage (during idle times). I'm not sure if it applies to all other brands since I'm using One M8. Go to settings, select locations. Then for Mode, use Battery Saving. It says use WiFI and mobile networks to determine location. If you switch off WiFi most of the time (I use my 4G data package), then it pings only the mobile network for location. Did wonders for me. When I need to use Navigation apps, I just go back into settings and choose High Accuracy.
Hi... I bought HTC 826 Dual Sim Blue Lagoon on April 13 2015. This phone was amazing to use. I awaited for the phone for long time and brought it. I use to handle it carefully. Not even a Single scratches. Some times it heats up more. But due to plastic body I can't feel the heat much. on April 26th 2015 my display started Malfunctioning. I need to touch 4 -5 times to make it work. HTC service center in chennai is near to my office and I directly took it to service center. There was a long queue waited for two and half hours for their call. Then they asked to wait for 2 days to confirm with the issue whether it related to software or hardware(display). I waited for the call/ And on April 30th I went directly to service center to check the status of my mobile. But it was in pending status an they dint checked it for the 3 days. Then they asked me to wait for some times to check the mobile. And then they confirmed it is a defective piece. They cant identify the issue. They gave me a DOA certification to sent the mobile back to Amazon.
Only one service center in Chennai and no manpower to handle customers.
They can't identify the issue. But they gave me the DOA certificate for refund.
12 days of experience with this mobile is really good. But this issue really upset me. I am a great Fan of HTC. I'll surely once again buy HTC 826 a second chance. I hope I won't get the same issue again.
Padma, 02 May 2015I want to buy this phone..can anyone respond to its cons?I purchased this HTC826 Two days back.
Since today morning it's Camera not working.
I been to dealer to show him if he could solve the problem - he says go to HTC Service Centre. They will issue a note then only I will replace it.
So think twice 😩

So with prolong use even your processor heats up as much as desire 826 but considering better heat dissipation property of metal chassis the user doesn't feel it. Neither phones will feel the effect of heating on performance before an hour so, maybe a little longer on A7. Thus i consider it neither a merit nor a demerit for either phone aand that's what i wrote.

I said camera is better on d826 because it allows alot of manual controls along with appreciable hardware. As phone camera's are not as good as real cameras(u know what i mean), manual tweakings help alot to get a respectable shot.
About the build material, I usually find techradar a trustworthy source. It says as follows:
Quote:In the hand, the phone feels perfectly premium. The metal chassis doesn't extend to the back of the device, though, but I have a feeling that this is something that Samsung is holding back for the Galaxy S6.
And I don't intend to insult Galaxy A7, it was just for the sake of comparison. I dont expect the price to be 10k less, its a premium brand afterall, but so is HTC and if it provides better value for money, whats wrong with mentioning it?
Those with battery problem.. Disable blinkfeed if not used.. And remove it from the home screen..

There is no nfc. Xiaomi samsung sony lg are providing nfc at this price.
Yes this is my third review. I have used HTC 826 rigorously (since 27.04.15). Following are the true and hand on observation. Battery - you have to keep charger with you. With full functionality and 1 sim your mobile will work for 5-6 hours only. Display : Nothing outstanding Z ultra have better display with lesser PPI. Phone reception : exceptionally good. WiFi and 3 g : very very fast. Heat : Yes 826 generate lot of heat. I was simply using camera for recording my children school event - instrument becomes very hot within 15-20 minutes of usage. Camera : Nokia 730 camera with lesser MP is far better than this. Final conclusion : If you have not purchased this, please avoid. If you have purchased this - just try to enjoy with whatever you have. Be happy and enjoy. Life is more important than mobile. I have used XOLO q 3000, TAB 2, microma doodle 2, Nokia E7, Sony Z ultra, Nokia 730, Samsung Grand, HTC 826. Out of these I like Sony Z ultra, Nokia 730 the most.
