HTC Desire 816 review: Heart's desire

The Desire 816 is only HTC's second attempt at a phablet - a bit unusual considering the segment has been expanding rapidly. So why is HTC hesitant to enter it with both feet the way other companies have?

It couldn't have been doubt in its own abilities, HTC makes some of the best-built devices on the market. The Desire 816 was a bit of a letdown in that respect - it's a beautiful device for sure, but the plastic on the back and the side buttons cheapen the feel of the device.

  • 5.5" with 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 13MP autofocus camera, 5MP front-facing camera
  • Front-facing stereo speakers
  • 2,600mAh battery; Extreme Power Saving Mode
  • Power key is on top, hard to reach on a big phone
  • Side buttons are poorly positioned and feel cheap
  • Small battery for a phablet
  • Underwhelming stereo speaker loudness

HTC Desire 816 review: A mid-range M8 let down by sluggish cameras

HTC deserves some credit for finding a niche space to compete in, and it's done so with some success. In general, the Desire 816 came out as the most ideal choice among similarly specced Android phablets: It has better camera specs, front-facing speakers and a slick UI. It's even a better deal than the One mini 2, which is essentially a slower Desire 816 with a smaller screen, plus a smaller battery, in a metallic chassis -- the part that HTC's charging you the premium for, yet it's not quite the same smooth finish as the M8's. read more →

  • Nice big screen
  • Slick Android UI
  • Loud front-facing speakers
  • Attractive design
  • Cameras can be sluggish
  • Poor HDR images
  • Not as good a value as certain other devices, namely the OnePlus One

HTC Desire 816 Review

HTC Desire 816 is an admirable mid-range smartphone, especially knowing that it can be bought for under 25k in markets where it is available. We don't find anything wrong with it given its price range, so guys, if you're on the looks for an inexpensive phablet, this here is one you should check out. The HTC Desire 816 strikes a good value for money ratio with its solid build quality, large 720p display, and its snappy UI performance. read more →

  • Very large display, Snappy UI performance
  • Stylish Sense 6.0 interface
  • Front-facing stereo speakers
  • Good value for money
  • Above average battery life
  • Heavy video games may be choppy
  • A bit large given the screen size
  • Earpiece quality could have been better
  • Only 4.2GB of user-available built-in storage makes using a microSD card mandatory

HTC Desire 816 review: Classic HTC style with plenty of power

Packed with just enough features and power, the HTC Desire 816 is a great deal. Yes, its skin is plastic, but like Apple's much more expensive iPhone 5C, it's a well-made phone that will impress you with its build quality. And while it's no One M8, the Desire 816 comes with the slick Sense 6 UI and a 13-megapixel camera for those who prefer a higher-resolution image. Sure, you miss out on a few of the M8's goodies, but you get everything that really matters.

The Desire 816 feels like the right phone to spearhead HTC's effort to win more customers who can't afford its steely flagship. read more →

  • Well built Plastic Body.
  • Display has excellent viewing angles.
  • Quad-core processor runs smoothly, with hardly any lag
  • Solid design and quality performance.
  • glossy plastic rear is a fingerprint magnet.
  • Lack of a removable battery is disappointing.

HTC Desire 816 review

The HTC Desire 816 is big phone that’s offers some of the best qualities of the One M8 in a cheaper but still attractive plastic body. It lacks a standout feature, but it's a good phone that won't let you down. read more →

  • Great sounding speakers
  • Decent 720p HD screen
  • Smooth overall performance
  • Buttons a stretch to reach
  • Camera slow to focus in low-light
  • Lacks a standout feature

    Good Phone in the price range

    HTC desire 816 is a nice phone in the price range of 20000 to 25000. There are two speakers in the front side of the phone and the sound from the speaker is awesome.  The display is good as its the new SLCD2 screen how ever its not HD.

    The things that make the desire 816 to look down is the memory, storage and the camera. The camera is nice when its used outside. However when we take pictures inside, the pictures look yellowish. The memory is stated as 1.5 Gb however it shows only as 1.3 gb in the phone. Also it has only 8 gb internal storage in which nearly 4 Gb is used by the Phone software itself.

    If HTC has focussed on these things, then HTC desire 816 will have the ratings 10/10 in all the web reviews.

    • Speakers
    • SLCD2 Screen
    • HTC Sense
    • Camera
    • Memory (1.5)
    • Internal Storage
