HTC Desire 816 Review

Highlights of the Phone:

HTC Desire 816 is a less costly alternative to the company’s more premium “One” series. The mid range flagship smartphone flaunts a gigantic 5.5 inch screen and brings the pleasures of LTE connectivity. In addition, its 13 MP shooter, 1.6 GHz quad core processor, 8 GB in-house memory and a lightweight body are other highlights which have earned the device a respectable place among countless contenders. The world still waits for HTC Desire 816 price to be revealed although the phone itself is expected to come out shortly in March 2014.

HTC Goes Colorful:

Perhaps, the company has been inspired by Apple’s colorful iPhone 5C or the much brighter Nokia Lumia as now users will be able to pick some bold colors apart from the usual sophisticated range. Among white, grey and black, red and green have also been introduced. However, these shades are not too loud or tacky. Instead, the tones have been kept moderately bright with a hint of pastel shades to make them appear less sharp to the eyes.

Well-Balanced Design:

Unlike the popular “One” family, this gadget has not been designed with metal. Instead, the manufacturers have chosen more lightweight and affordable plastic. The polycarbonate covering is glossy with a well-balanced blend of matt. The outcome is really appreciated as the device does not give off a cheap look. Apart from appearance, the handling is also favored as users will have a very satisfying grip owing to the phone’s matte sides. Moreover, the 165 grams device is 0.31 inches thick—perfect weight and dimensions for portability. So, as you show off the large smartphone, there will be no issues about gripping and carrying it.

The Screen Payoff:

Of course, the screen cannot be compared to the perfect display of One Max. However, the size, resolution and sharpness contribute to pretty high levels of satisfaction. Clarity is determined by pixel density and resolution of 267 PPI and 720 X 1280, respectively. In addition, 16M colors ensure the most desirable brightness and contrast. The screen’s technology has not been revealed yet, but early analysis shows that the screen performs a lot like IPS screens. As the gadget is expected to be sold at an affordable HTC Desire 816 price in Pakistan, these display specs seem very reasonable.

Luxurious Shooters:

The phone has been bestowed with a premium 13 MP camera at the back and a commendable 5 MP shooter at the front. This means the clarity of all your photos—whether taken from the primary or the secondary cam—will be taken care of. For improved photo quality, users can make use of LED flash, face detection, touch focus, and different shooting modes. The cameras also enable simultaneous video and image recording in High Definition format.

Memory, Power and Performance:

The phone houses pretty decent memory with 8GB on-board along with 1.5 GB RAM. The plastic cover at the back of the phone’s body pops open to reveal the slot for extra memory. This micro-SD card slot can accommodate up to 64 GB.

As far as power and performance are concerned, once again the phone possesses decent enough specs. Cortex A7 processor combines its power with Snapdragon 400 for a very satisfying performance. Moreover, it is expected that Android’s KitKat will be under the hood with the company’s Sense UI.

The Bottom-Line:

As the market fills up with cheap smartphones, here is a mid-range device which keeps the company’s head high with its uncompromised quality. There is luxury, style as well as performance worthy of appreciation. Therefore, as the model comes out in March/April, it will be one of the most attractive new devices out there.
