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.
Indian Version of HTC desire 816 is releasing this month with dual sim. Model no "D816D". SIM1=(GSM/CDMA)both support 3G upto 42mbps & SIM2=(GSM)2G upto EDGE

My point now is whether the device will maintain 23k price point even for a month. I guess it will settle around 20k.
Anyway - Guys please help me out in understanding whether this phone will have a strong glass equivalent to Gorilla Glass. Cuz I have seen non-gorilla glasses breaking too often.
P.S. - Earlier Gorilla glass listed this device on website. When I reached out to them, they blocked the content. Link - http://www.corninggorillaglass.com/products-with-gorilla/HTC/HTC-Desire-816

Shibi, 17 May 2014Xperia t2 ultra or htc desire 816?? Which 1 to buy?Buy Samsung galaxy grand 2 :P
Ya off course u have been waiting for a long time but I think there is a smart thinking by HTC. When there come changes that means something new must come. In India 16th May is important bcz ......
Simple yaar Modi is back n d whole India celebrates. So its a festive season for India nd same thing is also applied for HTC. Good luck HTC desire 816 must heat.
I ordered the HTC Desire 816 last week, can't wait to get it. I feel very optimistic about it, I will keep you posted.

The battery life of desire 816 is getting positive reviews.. but real user experiences are yet not there as people have not got phones in India..
Its not necessary that 50% margin is high (I dont mean it is low).. it also the amount of actual money margin thats required... So prices wud definitely lower down later.. This is not the best spec phone anyways..
private member, 17 May 2014What about battery , I listened htc battery is bad ?based on my experience..HTC and Sony got the best battery life..ive been using alot of phones..and i totally dont recommend samsung..total junk..
does this phone has any protection like gorilla glass or something?if yes im definitely buying..
kenny jay, 17 May 2014is the screen scratch resistant??is there any alternate used for gorilla glass to protect the screenSame question is bothering me!! Anyone please suggest about glass protection.
Btw ~50% margin is steep...HTC is playing smart here.
It is possible that after couple of months online stores will give good discounts..Need patience.
TEJASSS, 17 May 2014Finally prebooked white.. At mobile store...Is it dual sim?
