@Jatin, There is so much scarcity of this particular mobile across the country! I can't find it easily in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Only 1 shopkeeper has got 2 pieces of it, and he is asking 24500 for it!!
Why is it still scarce? Even flipkart is pricing it at 24-26000. Will i be able to buy it for around 22000 anywhere?
I am not on a budget, but i don't wanna end up paying 2000 more because of artificial scarcity, which i think is a clever marketing tactic! People have posted in the reviews of flipkart, that desire 816 is available in delhi and agra for around 21000!
Please comment in detail.
What about it's battery which isn't detachable... that is worrying!
I've Galaxy S Advance, and it's battery inflated in less than a year. I spent about a month to get another one.What about HTC then.
Any way I wnt this mob.

For people to get more battery life by 10-15% ...disable blinkfeed...remove it if not needed..and kill unnecessary running apps or games if the phone is ideal...

I love this beast but having few more doubts:

Amazing phone for me it's a best android phone available in the market at present.
extreme power save mode is yet another feature of HTC desire 816 which is worth mentioning....if you have 10% of battery remaining on your htc 816 and are travelling to some place and don't have power source handy then you can switch it to extreme power save mode which will make your phone to function with basic features only and will let you call, message, mail for 5-7 hours on that remaining 10% battery power.... this feature is found only in expensive high end phones only and htc 816 is providing us the same in a budget phone
