Rahul, 18 May 2014Just wait for one or two day
Gsmarena is doing battery test for this
we will get the resultsThe endurance rating for HTC one M8 is 71 hrs which is damn good althought I havent seen real world performance..
HTc desire 816 has same battery as one m8 and similar software setup.. Plus it has low res screen and slower processor.. so battery should be better...
Now here is a catch,.. It is a dual sim.. Dual sim phones are notorious in sucking battery as two sims constantly search for networks and similar things..
I have a nokia asha 210 which has battery life of 3 days on standby in real performance.. But lets say when i am travelling, and both simcards are searching for netwrks, the battery may even drain in a single night.. So be careful in analyzing ur HTC desire 816 battery performance..

Alim, 18 May 2014Hi, I have been using this phone for last 3 days. i bought it from Dhaka Bangladesh at 29000 T... moreHey! Its too early to judge the battery life in 3 days. At least test your phone for 14 days. Also try to maintain healthy charging cycles. Your phone is new, so initially battery will take some time to settle in..Give it some time rather than screwing it!
I don't feel like spending 45k on One m8..Seems too damn senseless..It seems to be a style statement only these days to have expensive phones. I have been using HTC Sensation from last 2 years. Have Vipers 5 ROM on it (Sense 5, Jelly been, etc.). I can manage with 2 years old specs without sweat..! My question is what different can you do with M8 by paying double price?? :o
On other hand: Moto E at 7k has Gorilla glass 3...Why no Gorilla glass on HTC at 23k?!! HTC whats wrong with you!!
Anonymous, 18 May 2014Is it cdma+gsm or gsm+gsm???Both,
SIM1- CDMA/GSM HSPA upto 42mbps and EVDO upto 3.1 mbps
SIM2- GSM only, EDGE upto 236kbps
So you can use the handset as CDMA+GSM or GSM+GSM
Retailers in Bangalore say that it will be available within next weekend for sure.
Mohitx7, 17 May 2014The battery life of desire 816 is getting positive reviews.. but real user experiences are yet... moreHi, I have been using this phone for last 3 days. i bought it from Dhaka Bangladesh at 29000 Taka.Everything else is ok for me within this price range but the battery backup is very poor I must say.I have lost 40% in 8hours just for normal use-few photos taken,hardly 1 hour web browsing in 3G,no song movie,apps downloaded,power saving mode was on, No GPS used but still battery drains very fast.So please dont buy this phone if you dont want to charge this phone twice a day...I will be happy if any real usercan prove me wrong
Best phone i use it from all phones i had used it note 3 htc one lg g2 the beast this is the best active dual sim phone in this world impressive rear camera in high light & low light amazing front came decent battery give me 1 day with hard use 3g all the time and take alot photos browsing it can lasting about 27 h with this hard using it have amazing stereo speakers with very loud sound and best design specialy white one i'm from egypt & i have it from two days now ican say best phone in this world compare to his lowest price between all phones
Annoying delay is reducing appeal Waiting for oppo find 7 as well
I dont think that price will fall easily. As htc is in loss and this handset is last hope to them. If there will be poor sales of this phone then price will fall. Otherwise htc wants to get maximum profits from this.
Which is the better smartphone....in looks and in display clarity?. the htc desire 816 or the Sony t2 ultra
HTCSennyuser, 17 May 2014They are making around 30% on m8. 50% is what apple is making on iPhone 5S. My point now is wh... moreYou are right... I just meant that percentage is not crucial .. but the margin money...
Will price fall?..Its purely based on demand ... Again this model is exclusive becoz of dual sim... moment u compare it with single sim variants it gets tricky whether its price is justified. So i am not sure what demand it will attract.
Mobiles store is giving for 23000 now.. It shud settle around 21-22000 for next month .. not further I guess. Given its specs, it has to be slightly higher than samsung grand 2
Cool info on the model name dor dual sim. d816d..
That link confuses whther it will have gorilla glass.. i hope it does... but my best guess is that glas has to be strong as it is a large screen even if it is not a corning glass.
