I am one of the initial buyers of this phone. It started throwing screen blackouts merely after 2 weeks of purchase.
Pros: Decent touch. Decent speed if compared in same range.
Cons - It has a very poor camera quality, you can compare it to be a better version of Blackberry Curve camera (Don't believe it.. check camera reviews on youtube!). Touch sensor is good but after sales services are very bad. Very negligent after sales services too. If you are just an interface lover.. Go for it.
Best Use : To play games. Phone heats up a lot but bigger screen is a benefit. Always keep your charger with you. Battery is a little weak.
Over all: A decent buy for a college student. Professionals might face huge looses due to data loss and phone hangs. Average issue resolving time is 20 - 25 days if it is a software problem. Hardware takes a little more time.
Please go for Nexus adding 1k extra. Never had any complaints using Nexus.
I am huge fan of HTC. Many people suggested me to go for Moto X, Nexus, etc., but having used HTC for last couple of years I decided to buy HTC'S latest version Desire 820. Its been 3 months I purchased HTC Desire 820.
Within 10 days of purchase the mobile had a speaker issue and I went to the shop where I purchased and they directed me to nearest service center. Guy in service center verified and told it has some issue and they will replace a new mobile. I did get a new mobile replacement.
It was not even 2 weeks I got the replacement, the mobile turned of suddenly. It was neither turning on nor charging. Again service center. HTC took nearly a month's time to fix the issue. I finally got my mobile after multiple follow-ups.
My bad again :( the mobile has a serious issue with battery. The fully charged battery doesn't last not even for an hour and it heats up like anything. Donth know what the issue is. Called the HTC Customer Service they are asking me to close all the unwanted applications and not to download any games, music etc.,
Please help !! How do I get this fixed ??
AnonD-196881, 25 Feb 2015I have D820 single sim and every things are good and ok.i agree with eidbest about heating.all... moreThank you ISCorp for your comment, I am glad to see people like you come forward and tell things differently. As you rightly pointed out, the temperatures for such high specked phones is normal and no way above that. The 820 may be priced as a mid-ranger but certainly puts to shame many more expensive phones. Speaking for myself at least, I am mighty glad I bought this Phablet, no regrets whatsoever. Cheers.
Hea guys i got Desire 820, n m loving the experience of using it. Its an awesome phone.
Can anyone tell me how do i move my Apps to SD card.

I have D820 single sim and every things are good and ok.i agree with eidbest about heating.all smartphone get hot and D820 temp is natural.display is very high quality,the phone speed is awesome and amazing in this range.sound bass is great and.....
D820 is the best midrange I've ever worked till now.
I've now completed 3 weeks of ownership of the Desire 820 single sim version. Brief specs: Octa Core 1.5, 2 GB rams, 16GB storage, Android 4.4.4. Unlike the negative posts reflected on this forum, I've not experienced any kind of overheating, be it playing heavy games, or surfing the net, or anything, just normal temperatures and nothing more. Furthermore, the battery is now truly good, beating all expectations so let's call it decent in all areas, even with 3G on. The screen has now proven itself very well under all kinds of usage, the sound system is a revelation, except the cam, this is the only area where I am not very happy as I expected more. However having said that, both cams manage fairly good pictures. All in all, the 820 is a fabulous phablet, being a joy to use everyday. It has the feel of premium phones, looks great, handles great, feels truly solid and very well built. Although I am not here to question anyone's negative sentiments, just to voice mine which are totally different thankfully. Based on my experience I will not hesitate to recommend this anytime
