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' 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

    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.
