I had mine for 2months now. I was waiting for it to be released here and when it finally came out, I was so excited to get one. Btw, I do my own researches before buying something so I would know what to expect once I have it. So For a week of having the phone, I started to get disturbed.
-Does it heats up? Yes. It heats up even I was only playing casual games like "benjie bananas" for about 10-20mins. It does heats up even more once I turn the wi-fi on and browse for 30mins or more. Or when I took photos of something without the flash on, it heats up too!
-Battery life? Oh no! The first time I turned it on, I used it until it drained out to 1%. Then I let it charged for 4hrs to 100%. (I never use it while charging) then I turned it on and browse settings or gallery for abt 20mins, from 100% it went down to 75-80%. All setting that might consume battery, I disabled all. Still, it wont last 8hrs of continous usage. It might last 5-6hrs of heavy usage. I texted the store where I bought it from cause I was really dissatisfied with it. They didnt replied back. Good thing, I am a technical support so what I did was, I reformatted the unit back to factory. It only took 30mins I guess. I also did battery calibration. It really improved the battery life and reduced heating issue. I also did my own research about it, and I found ouut that this phone really heats up alot but not to the extent that its gonna burn something, still manageable. See this link: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=o0QsRBw0ZO0. it might help. The battery life, well, always do battery calibration, it definitely fixes battery issues. However, it really really performs good and smooth. No lags. Quicker to open/close apps. It boots up faster. Sound quality is amazing! Camera quality is good enough. Well, Im loving my phone so much now. :)))
Please help!! I am facing audio distortion in speakers as well as headsets. The disturbance sound keeps coming frequently. I got the phone replaced three times with a new one from 22/1/2015. Still facing the same problem in all the devices. The service centre just hands me a DOA without letting me know the issue. Please if someone is facing the same problem do le me know what is the solution to this. I am very disturbed:( Today again when I called the service centre they asked me visit htc care and get it replaced and ask the retailer to give a phone from new stock.
I am using desire 820 for past 2 months.excellent battery backup and also I am not facing any heating problem even I use with WiFi connection continuously. Regarding charging allow the level to fall below 15% and charge till 100% u can use for next 48 hrs. Don't use while charging

i have been using device for 5 weeks now..yet not experienced a problem ...battery backup is also decent...in my opinion people who are confused with the overheating problem...i suggest you buy the phone from the latest as possible batch ..htc may have ironed out the issues for the latest batches...so ask the salesman for the latest batch of the phone
1.the htc desire 820 phone gets very heated near the camera, when you play high graphic game or watch videos for a long time.
2. the battery life on this phone(desire 820) gets very low very fast while browsing, watching some youtube videos, playing games for 30 mints.Charging the phone also takes long time.
3. out of 16gb only 7gb is free on internal memory, which gets full very quickly after installing some apps and games.
4. the performance of htc desire 820 is very good and very fast with no lag, hd games play very good.
5. Sound quality on this mobile is very good.
6. Display is good and viewing angles is good. Outdoor visibility good.
So only three good reasons performance, sound, display. I think there is a problem in the octa core Snapdragon 615 processor.

I have also desire 820 from last 2 months. And also latest A5 of Samsung just a week I buy. But clearly mentioned you that 820 is much better than any smartphone in this price range. Both handset r heating problem bcoz of fixed battery.
But performance wise 820 is better bcoz of 64 bit snapdragon 615 octa core processor. I never faced any lag or hanging problem. So, chose 820.
Battery Before you turn on minimum how many hours want to charge?????

I wanted to buy it. Checked its reviews from many sites and it seemed a good looking, nice shooting, fast processing smartphone, althoug a poor battery life. But by looking at your opinions, it is clear that this phone have a high heat up issue and I hate that. It looks like I have to search for another phone. Can anyone suggest me under the budget of 20k.
