HTC 828 3GB/32GB one month usgae update..
I would say its a decent device for its price..
1) very light for its size, sometimes its feels like device is battery less
2) No lag even after opening half a dozen apps
3)Loud speaker are quite gud...at full volume some distortion might come but quit clear while watching videos/movies
4)Screen is splendid having natural colours and crispness.
5)Earphone quality is decent too. Thought my previous device 826 sounded better via earphone in my opinion
6)Call quality is superb at both ends
7)Battery life seems to be at par HTC 816 if not better. it easily lasts me day with few hours of calling and watching videos, surfing net on wifi
8)I havent faced any overheating.with this device. its perfectly normal . I have made several calls with this device ranging 30-45 mins. While charging, wifi surfing or video watching it was okay too. Yes it did heat up more while i am browsing on 3G/4G .
9) Havent played any game so cant on that except that everything has been a breeze
10)No fast charging , with bundled charger it takes around 2:30 -2:45 hours for a full charge from 0-100% Didnt try hight Amp charger.
11)Usabe ram is around 1.3-1:5 GB
12)Rear Camera is blazing fast. it exceeded my expectations. i got a chance to compare with iphone 6s . Result were quite comparble quality wise. Iphone was definately better with more natural colour. iOS definately helps in low lighting.
13) Selfie camera is superb. it capture so much light in every situation.
This pretty much sums up my experience with htc 828
htc desire 828 is a waste mobile.it has a heating problem & no battery back up.there are no features compare to other mobile. it`s waste of money
LLL, 21 May 2016Every company has produced a bad device once in a while. Does that mean we avoid the other mod... moreIt's really a worst phone.I don't know about other HTC phones, but this is really a big bug. Please please please I request everyone not to buy this phone and unnecessarily dont keep yourself suffering like me. Only camera is good in this phone, remaining everything is worse. No battery backup and phone gets heated up very badly for every half an hour. Also it lags very badly if u have any back running applications.
Camera Quality is good. Do not buy this phone htc desire 828. it is a furnace, heating problem is biggest problem. Speed of internet is much slower than other sets. A poor model of htc.

Does that mean we avoid the other models of that company? Because if that's the case I must not buy any phone. Oh no!
LLL, 16 May 2016Thanks for the review. How about battery life from your experience? :)dont buy this mobile even all htc because it is very bed mobile heating problem in 828 mobile .dont buy and save your money
Please do not buy any device from HTC, HTC is one big dabba...
I just got HTC Desire 828 3G Variant... not able to here the ring.. caller is able to here but there no display.. no ring... not even able to switch-off or switch on.... and it is having heating issues as well...
I have replaced HTC one A9 with Desire 828, since HTC one A9 is having issues with sim card detection... now this is also having some or other sort of issue...
Please don't even look at HTC :(
My reviews after using 3 months:
+ Good build, light weight, classy display, premium look, good speaker sound and pretty much clear voice, head/earphone input is good.
+ Impressive camera, both front and read. Front specifically is awesome if you are selfie freak.
+ comes with gyroscope so ANT VR can be used via google cardboard
- Don't buy if you are gamer. All big games run very slow and practically impossible to play.
- It certainly heats up even if you play subway surfer.
- switching between open apps is very slow, this is pretty annoying.
- Heats up almost with mild usage. If your call getting extended beyond 10 min you will start feeling heat.
In short if you are heavy user it's a waste of money. Users with who don't play games or do not use phone heavily can go for it!

In India 828 3gb ram 32 gb model costs inr 20000 (it has no dual 4g support)
Then 830 will be inr 25000 825 will be inr 16000
The real problem of HTC is it's specs & price are not matching

Between 828 and 830, depending on your needs you could pick the 830 because it sports a much better chipset (Helio X10) than 828's one (MT6753), however you would need to spend a little bit more.
One thing, the 830 is currently Taiwan-only.
