I bought this phone 3 weeks back the POWER BUTTON is not working now. And I'm unable to play IRON MAN 3 also from the first day I bought the phone. WRONG CHOICE!!!
I bought this phone two months ago no issues at all for 23 grands its a good phone.
Issue started a week ago
First my headphones now dont work for calling purpose ,even when music played i can only hear the music ,no voice.
Second the phone Screen started flickring .
To check if its a software issue which is making the screen flicker, i have backed up all my data on SD CARD transferred all contacts,music n photo.
Once the backup was done my SD CARD stopped getting detected.
I have done the reset full system restore.
Even after that my SD CARD not getting detected and still unable to hear properly from my headphones.
I have contaced Support they can only suggest to visit the service center.
I am writing this for you all,if anyone experienced same issue please suggest solutions.
I will also recommend HTC to dobsome research and provide fix to all such issues.
Its a beautiful phone and i dont want to brick it or explore it for hardware upgrades.which will void my warranty,so please HTC take some initiatives and suggest RESOLUTION.
i am using this device from a month. i have gone through all opinions. people have few issues:
1. battery: guys battery last 1 day with normal use and remember you are using android not nokia 1100. do charge 100% in morning and when it reaches 30% it automatically ask you to activate power saving mode.
2. speakers: guys front speakers matters a lot. u dont need to cup your hand to rear speakers to listen loud and yea it is crispy and nyc.
3. performance: awsome performance, thanks to cortex a7 clocked at 1.6ghz. gpu performs well.
4. camera: best i have used yet on device. need more then buy canon, but for a phone its more than enough.
5. heating: ya it do heat but wont burn your hands.
i am satisfied guys. do buy it if you hav to pay 23k. and htc provides nice service. and ya do get your device insured its better option. good luck :)

I have been using smartphones, but this particular HTC 816 DUAL SIM is something completely different. Summary, it's ALL IN ONE smartphone.
I'm so excited since June,I got this hi-tech phone. I could not desire a better one than this smartphone.
Guys I am going to buy a mobile but confused between desire 816 & note 3 neo.. Guys plz tell me which should I buy and why....
Don't Buy this Phone, Its having a serious Issue and according to the HTC Support this issue is in most of the Devices in the Market.
Bought my phone on 5 July and got it Replaced 3 Times till now, Each time I received a new phone and a new problem and since the last 2 devices the issue faced is similar and still HTC does not have any answer to this..
I Have contacted them a number of times on call, on chat direct visit to service center .. Actually the phone is Awesome but the feeling you will have on getting this phone is worst .. Thought this may be an software issue updated the System all apps but no solution.. If u do have this phone kindly observe that whenever u receive a call does both the speakers make sound the Problem is out of 10 Times 2 Times the upper speaker does not ring only the lower speaker Rings.. This issue is only when u receive calls not when u play any media..
If u have Faced this issue or have any solution for this kindly reply as HTC Guys don't Reply.. !!
Bro don't install any sort of antivirus paid/free, and truecaller in any of ur HTC devices and believe me there will be no lagging, no battery draining issues.
Just do it for a test and feel the difference.
Rocky, 04 Aug 2014Its been around 4 days i am using da phone...Battery is draining like hell...It reduces by 8-1... moreSame with me bro.. Battery is my issue too, I let it stand by overnight fully charged and when I checked in the morning, (after 6hrs) it went down to 80%. This phone sucks! Grrrr
Rocky, 04 Aug 2014Its been around 4 days i am using da phone...Battery is draining like hell...It reduces by 8-1... moreBro this is not ur normal usage. U r playing game on snapdragon 400 chipset and andreno 305 gpu which overclocked while playing heavy games. Bcoz of that battery is draining.
Rocky, 04 Aug 2014Its been around 4 days i am using da phone...Battery is draining like hell...It reduces by 8-1... moreNot played game. But I do watch movies on phone. Can watch 2 hour movie with less than 20% battery
Rocky RJ, 03 Aug 2014I'm thinking to pick htc desire 816 dual sim before aug last..
but have some confusion
1- gp... more1. Andreno 305 is sufficient for 720p display
2. This phone cost arount 22.5k to 24k depending on where r u buying. In delhi this phone cost 22.5K( not sure)
3. Htc's service centers are in india
4.I agree zr is better than d816 but when zr was launched at that time phone was priced 30k. I think u understood what i want to say
5.To remove battery u dont have option other than service center
6. Sim 1 is only 3g enabled
7. Camera is averaged and if u want camera then buy slr dont buy phone
8. Mobile will last for 1 day with normal usage. If u want good battery life then go for t2 ultra.
9. Support 1 sim at a time while calling only.
10. I think this is good phone at price 23k. bro u cant get everything in this price if want good camera , battery life, bid screen and best gpu then u hav to invest atlest 33k
sid, 04 Aug 2014hey guys plz confirm how is the hand set & dual sim r gsm or gsm & cdma
First sim slot accept 3g gsm and 3g cdma sim simultaneously
Second one supports only 2g gsm
Its been around 4 days i am using da phone...Battery is draining like hell...It reduces by 8-10% in 15-20 mins while playing games or even in normal use...Does it happen with anyone of u or is my battery defective...
Pls need urgnt hlp...
lucky, 03 Aug 2014is dis device a 4g enabled...and does it support on the go (OTG)Supports OTG
No 4G. It seems it depends the network bandwith of a particular country
