AnonD-334421, 24 Nov 2014Could you verify this by pulling the mobile out of your pocket during incoming call and hearin... moreThat's probably the pocket mode. Ringtone is louder when in pocket but decreases when you take it out. You can turn it off from the settings.
I am using htc desire 820 for last one week. My previous mobiles are galaxy grand, nokia xl , asus zenphone 5 and moto g 2nd.
Display is very good :crisp and clear although low ppi
charger is 1A .So to charge 2.6 A battery it takes 2.6 hours.
Call quality is very good as compared to all my previous mobiles.
Build quality is solid.
UI is very smooth.
I find battery backup slightly better than asus and moto g2.
I think for htc desire 820 wifi is draining more battery than 3 G.
I find camera at par with galaxy grand.
I did not observe much heating . Heating near camera is as same as asus and moto g2.
For me this mobile is value for money at 25000.
If anyone has doubt you are welcome to ask.
I have milky way gray color (made in taiwan).
I think htc will optimize 64-bit chip for android L which will give significant battery life.
Gsmarena battery endurance test results are
moto g2 50 hrs, moto x2 48 hrs and desire 816- 64 hrs.
so, we can expect 64 hrs or more for 820.
j, 23 Nov 2014No..its just if d phone is in pockt thn only rigtone wil comw frm both d speakrs i use d same setCould you verify this by pulling the mobile out of your pocket during incoming call and hearing ringtone through top and bottom speaker? When i checked this i found that the ringtone sounds on full volume when the phone in the your pocket but there is no sound from top speaker. Please share your observation
The pictures taken in this mobile are awesome. they come out with vibrant colors. but this is the case when we view the pictures in the mobile Gallery. The moment we transfer it to the system or any other mobile or when we upload it on FB the pics look totally different. They show very dull colors and have less details and resolution. I have seen the same prob with LG G2. Is this the case with every mobile or is there any settings that we can do to retain the colors and resolution of the pics even after transferring to the system or any other mobile.
j, 23 Nov 2014No..its just if d phone is in pockt thn only rigtone wil comw frm both d speakrs i use d same setI have tried putting it in my pocket and then drawing it out during incoming call but the ringtone sounds only from the bottom speaker during call
I Bought HTC 820 Last Week And Its Running Great And No Heating And No Laging Problem Yet. Everything Is Working Great. Camera Is Also Great Both Primary And Secondary. Processing Is Also Fine.... Battery Backup Is Good. In Short It Is A Great Phone Under 25K .
This phones battery life is worst I have two sets 1 st one was grand even after 2 yrs the battery is running batter than desire 820
Second thing is that this phone doesn't allowed you for 3g video calling through network
So front camera is only for selfi no use other than this
[deleted post]My desire 820 takes 2.5 hrs to charge completely ..i use display at 50 % brightness and power saving mode .3 G on ....in 1 hr discharges by 15 %. .. in power saving mode there is no heating at all

AnonD-334510, 24 Nov 2014You bought it from online shopping site ?i bought it from mobile store in Cochin, its not good to buy from online in my opinion, stocks are limited in shops ,so please be hurry (camera is not up to the mark but rest everything is best)

AK, 24 Nov 2014I have seen the boxes of both white & grey colour handset. On grey colour's box it is writ... moreI m changed my s white colour phone twice from the dealer by claiming DOA certification bt both three phones having same heating issue
Dial *#*#4636#*#* and check the battery temperature.
Please tell the battery temperature when your phone is heating.
The gRey one is definitely from Taiwan.asked one of the dealer and according to him the grey one has been manufactured in Taiwan but only the first or so lot.now they have outsourced the outsourced the manufacturing to their China plant. So may be when the first lot is consumed the upcoming units will all be from China. Btw I had no option other than to buy gray one as this one was only available. Irrespective of color or origin country I am really enjoying this phone which I got on 22 November after exchanging my note 2. Till now no heating issues and camera is just fine. I had my phone on wi fi for about 2 hours straight and the battery level dipped quite quickly.only that is alarming in comparison to my old note 2.otherwise I think no other down issues.
I have seen the boxes of both white & grey colour handset. On grey colour's box it is written that it is Taiwan make & on white colour's box it is written that it is China make. I want to buy this phone , Kindly tell me whether the heating issue is in white one or the grey one or in both the phone.
