It has a 5 inches super LCD display , Octa-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A7 and a 8 MP camera, the HTC Desire 616 is doubtlessly not going to frighten off the contradicting armed forces on its own, yet who knows, it may end up being truly valuable in the more astonishing plan of things.

Design And Display

In the event that you have a tendency to delight in that rubbery delicate touch covering that HTC utilizes on some of its standard cell phones, you'll adore the Desire 616, on the grounds that it'll provide for you simply that. It's, delicate touch.  We figure it’s simply a matter of particular inclination. Size-wise, the Desire 616 feels truly 5.59 x 2.83 x 0.36 inches is extremely tight and might be effortlessly held and utilized with one hand.

 A pleasantly measured 5" screen is the thing that the Desire 616 possesses, so it is none, of these little, nor too enormous. The resolution of the board is only 720 x 1280 pixels, which has lead to the so-so pixel thickness of 294 ppi. Decipherability will scarcely be an issue with this showcase, yet it beyond any doubt is to some degree pixelized. The viewing edges of this IPS LCD screen are additionally conventional.

Interface and Functionality

It would appear that HTC truly revels in the Sense  UI that appeared on the One, as its been utilized on practically every cell phone the organization has prepared from that point forward, including the Desire 616. Here, Sense is running on top of Android 4.2.2, so you have a generally cutting-edge adaptation of Android.

To the leftmost end of the screen, you'll discover the purported Blinkfeed, which totals different sorts of substance like news, your schedule arrangements, social overhauls, and so on. It's a fine characteristic, yet tragically, there's no alternative to turn it off in the event that you need a more stockish experience. Other than Blinkfeed, whatever is left of the home screen interface is your standard undertaking. You can have various pages utilized for application alternate ways and widgets.

As you likely know, HTC Sense is a really broad UI, changing the look and practicality of most implicit provisions, including the dialer, informing and coordinator instruments. With everything taken into account, we like HTC's custom client interface and feel that it’s around the most cleaned and one of kind ones out there. There are some little hinders.

Processor and Memory

The Desire 616 is powered by the Octa-center 1.7 GHz Cortex-A7 processor. Appreciatively, there's the sufficient for such a telephone 1 GB of RAM, while inner memory comes in at 8 GB. While this sort of storage room sounds OK generally, the Desire 616 games a microsd card opening, which will permit you to introduce extra storage room on the telephone up to 64 GB extendable.

HTC Desire 616


The Desire 616 may have an 8 MP, which is more than the One's 6 MP camera; this is the fundamental 8 MP snapper with a moderately wide opening of sensor.

Unfortunately, HTC is yet to transform its camera application interface, which meets expectations, yet isn't especially agreeable to utilize. That is so in light of the fact that the greater part of the settings are full inside a little pop-up window on the screen and you normally need to do a considerable measure of scrolling all over so as to discover what you require. Other than that, it’s an adaptable application, which gives you a chance to exploit distinction scene modes, HDR, hostile to shake choice et cetera. There is no ceaseless self-adjust, however; rather, you can utilize the tap-to-center motion to change the center while shooting a feature.


Equipped with a standard  Li-Ion but unfortunately we don’t have any confirm information regarding the battery and the talk time and stand by time till yet might be the battery confirmation comes after the arrival of set but hopefully HTC  will give the sufficient battery talk time and stand by time to the users as always they provide.

Early Verdict

The HTC Desire 616 is an OK mid-range Smartphone. It doesn't fascinate us in any area, including the design, the internals and the software.

Hopefully, HTC will price this one reasonably, but just in case you're put off by its price or something else, you might want to take a look at the HTC One mini, if you're ready to spend a bit more on a new Smartphone. Another option is the HTC ONE M8, which is a bit more higher-end in every respect. Finally, if you're looking for something a bit more 'Samsung', the Galaxy S5 might be all that you're looking for - it sports a slightly smaller screen, but also a better camera.
