Before its appearance in the market the company’s press release did reveal that it would come loaded with Sense 5.5. However it was not disclosed that the company would use android and have its cover designed by the company of its own. However, it is understood that the new product of HTC, the mobile set “Android 4.4 Kitkat” will appear in the market by April 2014 and the Desire 816 will be made and marketed internationally.

Design  And Display

Stunning! We know feel are a subjective matter, yet we think that it hard to envision some person be happy with the looks of the Desire 816. It's like HTC took the best from the One, and strived for the most moderate configuration conceivable. What's more it brought about the ideal result!

Besides enormous screen at the front, there's fundamentally no ornamentation to talk about except for the two front-confronting HTC Boom sound stereo speakers. These have experienced a change from past models, and are presently a great deal more negligible in their presence and size. At the back, we have a basically unfilled gleaming shell be produced out of polycarbonate, with the back camera and glimmer  stacked on top of one another at top rightmost. The left side holds the volume button and force catches, both of which felt pleasant to the touch. On the right, we have a subtle fold that holds the openings for the microsd card and nano SIM.

Clearly, the materials utilized within the development of the Desire 816 are different from the aluminum-clad HTC One, yet we by and by appreciated the manufacture of the 816. It may not be the premium material, yet it felt durable and dependable, which is the thing that matters at last.

There's no fleeing from the way that the Desire 816's 5.5-inch presentation places it into the phablet association. With a resolution of 720x1280, or 267 pixels for every inch, its not set to be around the most itemized screens out there, however it may as well demonstrate sharp enough for a charming review experience.


Processor and memory

Qualcomm appears to have solidified its spot as the principle supplier of mid-extent chips starting late, for we've seen a few gadgets ship with a rendition of its quad-center Snapdragon 400 chip starting late. The Desire 816, as you've most likely conjectured, makes is no special case. It's fueled by four force productive, 1.6ghz ARM-A7 centers and an Adreno 305 GPU. Based on a 28nm methodology, we've seen the chip handle itself well previously, and it carries the included benefit of 4g LTE radio.

The HTC Desire 816 is no weakling as far as memory, either. The company has fitted a 1.5gb RAM unit inside, which may as well demonstrate more than sufficient for ordinary multitasking.


HTC's methodology to the camera on its lead One cell phone has been very disputable. As opposed to choosing the most astounding conceivable megapixel tally like its rivals, it went down the complete inverse route with its Ultra pixel innovation. A considerable lot of will inhale a sigh of help once they enlist this: the Desire 816 comes outfitted with a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 gap and a LED glimmer. The camera can shoot 1080p film, and we're wanting the regular programming goodies, such as HTC Zoe, to be ready for.

Up at the front, we have a 5-megapixel, f/2.8 wide plot lens unit, fit for 720p film catch. It goes without saying that the Desire 816 sounds like the ideal instrument for the selfies-fixated out there.


HTC made it completely clear that it is set to be wagering on the Desire 816 to recover the company on track to recovery. To such an extent, that the company devoted its whole occasion at the MWC 2014 to the handset, basically overlooking its other new mechanism - the Desire 610. We're advised to want a to a great degree focused, mid-reach value focus, however that is still honestly vague.

We expected to see this set in the later march in China and in April we are able to see this set rest of the world.
