Until now that the phone had not released everybody was cursing it for its late arrival. Now that it has released people are cursing it for its drawbacks. C'MON people .. Every phone has got its drawbacks . Nothing is perfect. If the phone lacks in any feature then you should move to other alternatives but cursing it all the time is such a wastage of time.
Believe it or not.. Htc has really tried giving us a lotions in the range 23-24 k .. Now you can't have everything.
You can't expect it to have features of a 40 k phone.
Plus for those who are comparing it with Grand 2 , I must say that here desire 816 is a clean winner.
I guess with Moto x too as apart from the voice control feature and the gorilla glasses I do not find anything worth appreciating there.
Other than this of those who have bought htc desire 816, can somebody please tell me which colour looks the classiest?

AnonD-270418, 04 Jun 2014i have been using this htc 816 desire since one week.
1. awesome looks WITH BLACK GRE... moreI am afriad that u have got a defected model.
1) I played high graphics game for more than a hour but didnt feel any heating up!!!
2) I played, browsed in internet in 3G as well as wifi, blinkfeed always on, average talktime, downloaded many apps,etc..overall with heavy usage after 17 hrs in battery is showed me 14% battery!! well its far away from "POOR BATTERY performance"!!!
5) Fingerprints is catchy thats why I opted for WHITE color which looks very premium.
4) Ringtone sound is acceptable. maybe with flip cover it might sound bit low. Its normal with any mobile dude!!
I have used it for 5 days and m just loving it!! hats off to htc for making this awesome beast!!!

4. super smooth functioning
5. gsm / cdma compatible dual sim
6. expandable memory

2. very POOR BATTERY performance - even with average use i have to charge battery thrice a day!!..m fed up of carrying a charger and plugging it all the time...plus its non removable!

4. RINGER TONE IS VERY LOW ..even with full volume.
all in all if u increase the batttery life this phone is the best in class...
