I had HTC one x,my father has s3 and my brother opted for note 3 after using iphone 4.After much thinking I went for desire 816.I use my Phone for hardcore gaming and music.And please do not believe some so called reputed sites declaring that this phone is just adequate for gaming,it is more than adequate for ANY GAME.I installed fifa14,shadowgun dead zone and asphalt 8 and had no problem whatsoever.And do not go by benchmarks this phone spent lag at all and handles game without hiccups.I am literally fuc**** everyone in shadowgun.
AND DO NOT JUST BUY THIS PHONE on my
recommendation.GO AND TRY FOR YOURSELF.
I was going for iPhone5s or m8 before buying this but my friend(who owns desire 816) recommended this.I was ignorant and thought that only top end phones are good for gaming and music.I was most certainly wrong.Ofcourse m8,s5,z2,iPhone 5s are all good but they do nothing that this Phone doesn't .In my opinion they are equal but just beacue they are charged at a premium price we think they are superior(thats what I thought).Even my brother says that his note3 is good but not superior to desire 816 and asks me to swap phones.
Briefing it up(BUY IT BUT DO TRY FOR YOURSELF BEFORE BUYING)
1)Excellent music.(speakers are great but with earphones its best .period.one x 's music was loud but not clean,iphone's music is clean and loud but is a bit cold (lacks emotion),samsung's music is no match for HTC or apple.
2)Great camera.(note 3's camera is 10% better than this).I am satisfied with it.Amazing daylight pics but low light is not good.Frankly be it note 3 or iphone low light performance is muddy.Both note 3 and iPhone tops desire 816 in video quality but stills are equally good in all of them).
3)Gaming- Fuck benchmarks.This Phone and note3 both plays above mentioned games exactly the same.Maybe two years down the line its processor shows signs of aging but who keeps a Phone for more than 2 years.
4)This Phone looks great.I like the looks of one x,LG g3,nexus 5,iPhones,Samsung but I must say that this phone looks and feels more premium than LG and Samsung.(one advise ,use mat lamination on back panel,it will look like leather and looks great)
1)bad stock earphones.Horrible.
Better buy a good pair of earplugs.I use jbl j33 and Sony mdr.Both sound amazing.This phone's audio quality is my favorite part.
2)Less storage space but I had a 16gb card already:)
I am grateful to my friend for recommending this phone as I was going for rs.40000-50000 phone but saved quite a lot(Got mine for rs. 23600).And the thing is this Phone is no less than top ends and I don't want gimmicky features that I don't use.
Highly recommended but do try for yourself before buying.
what is the different between "Optional Dual SIM" & "Dual SIM (dual stand-by)"...example "HTC Desire 816" & "HTC Desire 516"...???

Finally got mine white desire after a month of waiting from MGF mall in Gurgaon.The only thing disappoints me is the internal memory which is filled 4.69/8.00 GB.HTC should give atleast 4GB.but its ok cause I'm not a heavy gamer,just play small size games like temple run and angry birds,not like Asphalt,GTA,dead trigger.so I hope its not gonna bother Me in future.

Hey guys Im using this mobile from 23 days. I bought gray color. nt from flipkart, I will not re write specs again here.
Body = by look its sexy, slim. looking pretty n giving rich look but, back plastic body is not so good. attract fingerprints n scratches. I have suggestion u can buy full body guard, its same like screen guard it covers full phone body. cost upto 600Rs.
Screen = very good, sharp. best to watch videos, gaming . but little dull in direct sunlight. no problem at all.
Performance = excellent, no any lag, no any hanging problem. switching between apps is fast. no any loading or waiting. gaming is best no any lags.
Audio = best audio experience. loud & clear. the headphone quality is also gr8. but headphones are not ear pack. its regular. :(
Camera = Gr8 camera. frnt camera is v. good for selfies. rear 13mp gr8. HDR mode is also gr8.
Memory = 8GB internal, who worries it have expandable 128GB. RAM 1.5GB , I love it still my mostly ram is empty.
Battery = i think 2600mah is little small for this giant. if ur heavy user u need to find charging point after 10hrs. but if ur moderate user its usefull for full day.
Overall very nice phone. U can prefer this than sony t2 ultra, samsung grand2.
Go For It!!!
