HTC Desire 830 Review

HTC is ready for the release of a brand new mid-range device – HTC Desire 830. Succeeding the 2-year old Desire 820, the new smartphone houses a touchscreen with the same size but a slightly revamped resolution. The 5.5 inch screen now presents the clarity of 1080 x 1920 pixels instead of the previous 720 x 1280 resolution of its ancestor. In addition, the phone’s Super LCD capacitive display, a 13 MP primary snapper and Android’s 6.0 Marshmallow OS version are also latest additions.


The newbie consists of an all plastic body. Although it does not give a premium feel, the plastic exterior does contribute towards a pleasantly light weight. In addition, accent colors have been added along the sides, around the camera ring as well as the speakers to add some spice to the all-white body. At present, the available colors are red and blue. Overall, the appearance is quite eye-catching. The device measures 6.2 inches in length with 0.31 inches of thickness. These measurements are appropriate for a mid-range device which is suitably large and thin for convenient use.


The 13 MP lens at the back of the phone is teamed up with regular photography features including autofocus, face detection and LED flash. HDR and panorama modes add to the variety of ways for capturing memorable scenes and moments. On the other hand, the front facing camera of HTC Desire 830 offers 4 MP of resolution with 1/3 inches of sensor size. Although results will not be desirably clear and sharp, the front shooter turns out to be sufficient for video chatting and self-portraits with an in-built photo editor for bringing quality improvements and adding special effects.

BoomSound Speakers

The addition of BoomSound speakers is an exciting feature found in this mid-range smartphone. These are located at the top as well as the bottom of the device in order to lead to the best sound effect. This feature is most desirable for music lovers. BoomSound speakers yield the ultimate level of volume output which is up to 95 dB.

Processing Power

The performance of HTC Desire 830 is stimulated by its 1.5 GHz Octa-core processor. It is paired up with MediaTek MT6753 chipset. The result is a smooth performance which is sufficiently fast for loading up the operating system and running a plethora of apps.


The phone will be available with internal memory of 32 GB. Although it seems good enough at first, it is not sufficient for maintaining media libraries and supporting all the applications in the phone. However, the manufacturers have resolved this issue by adding a memory card slot for extra memory space. It can be added up to a whopping 128 GB. Therefore, users with large memory requirements can avail this useful feature.

The Verdict

With justifiable HTC Desire 830 price in Pakistan, the new smartphone turns out to be the right device for average users who do not require high-end features. It is equipped with hardware which fulfills all essential requirements. In addition, the BoomSound speakers add to the overall attraction of the phone.
