Don't buy this phone, Customer service for HTC is poor in general. only one customer care in the whole city of chennai and everyday 100's of customer get frustrated. I used this phone for 18 months and now i am having problem with charging.
I hv a problem that I changed 2nd sim to 1st sim slot for 3g .but in dual mobile network when i choose slot 1 for preferred network it doesn't work . It works when i select 2nd sim as my preferred network but actually sim is on 1st slot.
Using this phone since 16 months, satisfied with its performance, especially camera is well performing. Nowadays facing only problem is battery backup. Sometimes it's 3-4 hours, and sometimes it's 10-11 years. With same use of applications. NO games installed on it.
amirhossein_em, 10 Aug 2015Hi guys , I've Desire eye but one of my friends has Desire 816, the 816's android ver is 4.4.... morei think that your phone isn't original because the lollipop update came to my device since april so i think that you should contact your htc company in your country and they will tell you what to do(contact them via email or phone)
internal memory is the worst thing in this mob it's almost 2 GB usable
Stupid phone..first 3 month after purchase got problem with motherboard..sent it to repair since it still under warranty, got super bad service from htc malaysia..get my phone back after repair almost 2 month..after using almost one year the same problem persists..i really dont know how this phone got their good reviews..now got problem to find people that can repair this phone.not every shop can repair this phone in kl..believe me, say no to htc..

8 GB internal memory is too low considering 4 GB are used by updates of bundled applications.
