Please do not buy this phone.
Bought one in may 2015, and with my first hand experience recommend you not to buy this phone.
the limitations of this phone-
1- battery drains out quickly. as soon as you plug off the charger after full charge, the battery % drops to 98-96, probably because of the 5.5 full hd screen.
2- full battery charging takes 4 hours.
3- the after sale support is deplorable. The service centre keeps your phone for more than one month or so, even for a minute defect.
4- the phone's touch screen stops functioning after 30-40 days of purchase. Have got my phone replaced twice, and now it is the third time the same problem has occurred. Added to it, the service centre takes 25-30 days to give a certifiacte fir relacement.
5- the camera quality is not at all appreciable. inspite of 13mp, a 5mp camera of other phones seem better than this 13mp.
6- the sound, ringtone , overall sound if the phone is too low. You can hardly hear the ringtone in the streets, even when your phone is in your pocket.
So i strongly recommend you not to purchase this phone at all.
Ravi88, 15 Jan 2016Lets first get 5.1 update and later decide about 6.0Sadly it is not going to receive the 5.1 update. Htc has skipped the 5.1 update on this phone.

The 615 does and will heat up every now and then. But do check the amount of background running applications in your phone. For a heavy user it is advisable to restart your phone atleast once a day.

Sony C4 for sure. I purchased this phone a while ago. The camera on this phone is not good at all. Sony C4 is considerable better phone as well.
Not worth for money. Battery life and phone heating up are major issues

MdFIA, 13 Jan 2016Which camera performs better? Samsung j7 or htc 826 ?? Please urgently reply...Well, this phone has a better selfie cam but the j7 probably has the edge over this one. Not sure though, but the difference wont be big. If you're looking for what phone to buy: Get the 826.
