this is the first HTC device i got interested in. But in my country,they usually priced their phones quite high. So I'm town between this and Sony's T2 ultra.
Flipkart shows single sim...but htc site shows dual sim.....confused....i want dual sim only....
wow looks good, and has great camera. better than the 4mp ultra pants. thats one the current models.
AnonD-246723, 22 May 2014Totally cant agree with you . T2 ultra is alot better for the example . Its only decent mid ra... moresorry but 816 is better than t2 almost in every aspects..
plus it sony devices even flagships have too lags in use although in flagships less but its not comparable with sense even screen,speaker, performance...
especially 816 camera is great,
i have used this phone and its pretty good....especially sense 6...coupled with kitkat...good to see htc providing latestsoftware....the speakers are as good as ever...and camera is also very good....its a little big fot my hands...so i went for the m8...and battery is good...dont go with capacity. ......and comparing with t2 ultra....this phone wins hands down...htc desire816..has better ram..better speakers...better software...
Thanks for the Review gsmarena..........
it's good to know about the device before to buy and u really explained it good.....
I AM GOING TO BUY THIS DEVICE very soon it's ready to buy in market i have been waiting since the device launch in india........the device is gud and fast too so my vote for the device is 8/10 which is average for midrange device from a brand company like HTC
also if any could tell me when the device will be available......thnks in advance
thank you for the review I will buy this desire 816
better than the note 3 neo
camera is amazing and the phone is fast
You can rearrange the options in the notification menu, there's a button for it right there.
Seems like review is written by different person and some are keen to point out the shortcomings of this phone like inadequate processing power which they praised so much in moto g.and poor back plastic which is same as xperia t2 ultra.but in my opinion this is much better than t2 ultra as this has better ram front speakers ,LTE ,great quality sound and better skin with advance os version for same price.guys we need to cheer HTC for making more phones as value for money as this .please tell your opinions.

Samsung galaxy note 3 neo costs about Rs.30,000. When you compare the CPU/GPU, note 3 neo is far far superior and the price difference is more than worth it. Just my view on this.
in overall 816 is the best mid-range phablet with some high-end options like great and soft ui - beautifull and very good size for phablet - great camera - great speaker - nice screen..and most important adv in 816 is cost..
battery scores is very good too but not better than note series but its good.
