Using this phone for almost a month now and it works perfect.
Did hang once. Good battery. Decent response time. Awesome display. Hardly any isiissues.
But to mention the photography in night in low light might appear yellow and phone might get a lil warm wen u use it for llong
else thumbs up for this.. Best choice in this price range.
The look of this phone is class apart. Apart from features appearance is also an important factor and desire wins this hands down. Gionee or other brands may provide more or less features but htc quality and service + htc interface is the one that cannot be matched by Chinese brands. Note : I'm not against these brands.
Had an opportunity to see this phone in a store and now buying it this weekend.
its been 15 days that i'm using dark grey htc desire 816. phone is very good but indian version doesnt support 4G, even maximum data speed limit is 14.4Mbps and 42Mbps. htc desire 516 has limit upto 21Mbps ( dont know why). You should get H+ with 14.4Mbps also but I am not getting any H+ data connection. i am getting H only.
rest of the spec like camera sound etc etc are excellent.
Tbone., 14 Jul 2014Just coz of 3000 mAh battery m choosing T2 ultra over HTC 816..... My 1st priority is good ba... moreWell but t2 ultra is way too big and not feasible to use friendly. U can ask any dealer or mobile store keeper.he'll definitely say 816 is much better.
Got this phone a week before. I have installed all apps and purchased 32 gb SD card. There have been almost 30 people who asked me about this phone after noticing in my hand. Looks awesome. Graphics are mind blowing. Better than my previous iPhone 4S. As fas as the battery life is concerned it's not upto the mark. It should have been 3000 mAh battery. Then too with a moderate usage it lasts for a day. Camera is mind boggling. Sound is a miracle in this phone. Wow! If you're addicted to browsing and using internet all day then you need to carry a portable charger along. So excluding the battery part this phone is awesome.
I am abouy to buy a new phone. I am confused which one to buy. htc desire 816 or Samsung galaxy note 3 neo. please suggest./
i have installed common apps like facebook, whatsapp, linkedin, outlook, skype etc. with these apps battery comes for 1 - 2 days
very good for composing emails as it is 5.5" screen. sound quality is good with stereo speakers.
the power and volume buttons are at left handside. i'm not happy with this. but overall, very good phone
I want 2 buy the smartphone but i'm confused between following phones which r -
1)Galaxy note 3 neo
2)htc desire 816
3)sony xperia T2 ultra
4) & Grand 2...
suggest u r experienced opinions....!
which should i buy?????
manojpatil, 15 Jul 2014Prakash, sorry to know about this unfortunate incident. But based on the response to this phon... moreYa it is a very nice phablet except the build quality of power button n volume rocker, I hope they will replace handset with a new one, but I m little bit scared about company warranty Conditions, I aware about "physical damage" but I didn't damage my phone.
HTCM7owner, 14 Jul 2014I suggest u go for white colour...
With other colours, u will notice a lot of finger print ... moreI'd go for the black one for three reasons:
1. Dunno why but it seems like *everyone* has the white model.
2. I've seen the white model in some 2nd hand mobile markets already, and they're not looking so white anymore! Maybe their owners didn't take good enough care, but the white had "aged", difficult to describe but it had gotten a tint darker/dirtier?.
3. Because the phone also has a black bezel around the screen, all-black just looks better and will hide the bezels more.
kumar prakash, 15 Jul 2014Purchased from croma at mega mall Mumbai (it's not my native place) on 11 July, on 12 July pow... morePrakash, sorry to know about this unfortunate incident. But based on the response to this phone, i don't think this would be common issue.
HTC will give new piece in your case, i believe.
...BTW i am desperately waiting for my 816 and should receive the delivery tomorrow!
