Hi guys i bought this device and it's great but I face some problems
I think my phone for China because i found some Chinese apps
Also the device name is different
( HTC desire d816w)
Also the software update option not there
The device come with htc sense 5.5
Please help me how can I update it?
It depends on ur requirement. i saw every comment. If u want bigger display then forget about powerful cpu and gpu. Bcoz in hardware display is most expensive part of mobile.
Xperia zr has powerful cpu and gpu but display size is 4.6Inch on other hand 816 has bigger display but u have comprmise with cpu and gpu.
If u want powerfu cpu,gpu plus bigger display with 274 ppi then even samsung cannot help you(i m nt talking about local brand). So think about what is ur requirement then buy mobile
Those who want bigger display with best cpu and gpu then spend atleast 30k

It's a policy they need to follow. If you ever heard about custom rom then it's the best solution. Great new device will soon get their own custom rom cooked by our huge devs community.
I am using desire 816 since week.
when i connect my phone to my lappy it does show only internal storage not able to access my SD card please help me out.
I bought the phone to understand later that it's Dual sim active. In other words when you are talking on SIM 1 the other phone gives switch off and vice versa. this defies the whole purpose of Dual Sim.
i was thinking to buy this phone, currently i'm using a xperia C. well i've few questions i hope you guys will answer them.
1)how is the camera quality in low light situations?
2)how is the sound output form the speakers? is it louder than the other phones in the same category?
3)this is the most important question,i know this phone supports "apps 2 sd card" by default but i guess it does not transfer much data of any application to the sd card like my xperia c(it has just 1gb AVAILABLE storage for apps but it transfers almost 90% data of almost every app to the sd card)i guess the desire 816 just transfers a small part of any app may be because of kit kat
so guys can anyone of you tell that how much data is on sd card and how much is on the internal memory after moving them to sd card, in case of following apps and games
2)dead trigger 2
4)subway surf and temple run
7)any other big app or game
please help me,i hope someone will answer my questions
AnonD-283232, 17 Jul 2014Great publicity of zr. Nothing against this Sony phone but it's an 1 year old device with jus... moreWell i was just telling d ppl that don't spend too much for these cortex a7 based CPUs.. These CPUs and their poor gpu will get outdated in less than a yr.. Desire 816 is available at flipkart at 26k! Just add 2-3k more n u will get phones like s4, nexus 5, g2 etc.. Flipkart price of xperia z is 24k. Which is also a better phone than desire 816! I also like desire 816 allot bt giving 26k for a phone Which is having adrino 305 gpu is total madness!! And 4.6 is very convenient.. 5.5 plus front speakers means massive dimensions..
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2014ya if u wnt bigger display and dual-sim than go for 816 bt keep in mind that it has cortex a7 ... moreGreat publicity of zr. Nothing against this Sony phone but it's an 1 year old device with just 4.6 inch screen also in terms of design zr stands no where close to desire 816.
Desire Qualcomm processor with 305 gpu is decent enough to play most of the games. If some body interested in heavy gaming then definitely that person should search for other phones.
I would like to correct you that s4 is still expensive then 816.
k, 17 Jul 2014HTC has a larger screen and is dual sim too.Check the camera too.ya if u wnt bigger display and dual-sim than go for 816 bt keep in mind that it has cortex a7 cores and adrino 305 gpu. CPU seems ok bt gpu is dealbreaker.. forget adrino 330, even adrino 320 is twice more powerful than adrino 305 of htc desire 816.. and look at the price too.. 25-26k for adrino 305??? no way!.. u can get way better phones with this budget.. even xperia z and galaxy s4 is cheaper than this 816 at sm places.. and camera of zr is more than enough..
Hi Friends..can you please let me know how is the camera quality of HTC desire 816?
Camera is my first preference so I am more concerned about it.Please reply asap.
Sony xperia zr is available on flipkart @ 19990/- with twice more powerful hardware and 2gb ram.. zr is waterproof device with very convenient size. this offer is for limited period.. guys plz don't spend 25-26k for 816 which is having cortex a7 cores and poor adrino 305.. its no where near krait cores and adrino 320 of zr.. and zr is upgradable to 4.4. hv a smart buy. thank you!
Phone is Gr8 if you don't care about the pic quality of camera...
NO sound equalizer in music player..
Battery backup is good.
processing speed is good.
