Hi guys I have got HTC desire 816 today in Chandigarh, India. For me it's very good phone till now. Earlier I was confused between desire and grand 2. And finally I got this and I'm very happy with my choice. Screen is fantastic, nice build quality. Touch is very nice and fast. Lock button must be at right side. Sound quality is good. Camera is fantastic. I recorded fast hd video at 60 fps and slow motion video at 120 fps. Audio recorded is stereo. Pictures taken are sharp and contain details. It is dual SIM and requires nano SIM. Till now it has performed very well. Some apps are not compatible with android 4.4.2. Some apps can be transferred to sd card. It's a very nice phone. I haven't checked battery yet but I think battery backup will be good. This device don't have builtin file manager. The problem is that you cannot delete data from sd card using any other downloaded file manager. This is due to the security feature of android 4.4.2. But still I like this device very much. The fact is that no other device has features like HTC desire 816 at this price.

HTC Desire is really better and cheep in the present market. But not a gorilla glass protection.

The HTC Desire 816 phablet has been warmly received in China where over a million people registered their interest to buy one. Those registrations are slowly turning into actual sales - slowly, because there were only 50,000 units available and they flew off the shelves in 10 minutes.
Anonymous, 31 May 2014Hi Guys, I checked this phone. But the display brightness is very low compared to other phones... moreYeah thats the first thing i too noticed bro. i thought something problem with my eyes only (cos soon after completing my CA exams i rushed to the nearby croma to checkout the phone) Checked the mobile in Croma. I found the brightness to be lil dull. Rest all is damn good barring the rear cover of the phone. I had a grey colour to test and beleive me u just need to appoint a separate helper to clean the rear panel of the phone all the time :p (no puns intended). But nevertheless liked the phone overall.
Sam, 30 May 2014Hey Guys , im about to get a new smartphone so i'm so confused between Galaxy note 2 or HTC de... moreHi,
In my opinion, HTC Desire 816 will suit your needs..
1) 5.5 inches large & nice IPS LCD screen
2) 2 front stereo speakers with amplifiers
(Boomsound! - Amazing sound that no other brands can match, trust me..)
3) 13 mp rear & 5 mp front camera
The only downside is the 2600mAh battery might not enough for you.. just get a portable power bank & problem solved! no worries..
