One At Heart: HTC Desire 816 review

mobility.com.ng
12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The HTC Desire 816 is an interesting device. It is clearly a “One” in heart and soul, but branded and marketed differently, and targeted instead at the mid-range market. In my opinion, it is even better value for money than the M8. You will want to find out why, so do come along. Instead of a metallic body, it has a very nice polycarbonate shell that speaks class just as well. Instead of a 4 megapixel UltraPixel camera, it packs a 13 megapixel camera.

HTC Desire 816 Review: Powerful, Plastic, and Not So Pricey

Brighthand
30 July 2014
  • Summary: The HTC Desire 816 is a midrange phablet which, despite several obvious shortcomings, leaves the impression of an above-average product. It is an instant leader in the rather barren midrange phablet market, largely due to its harmonious mixture of dependable design and powerful performance, which no other phablet in its price range can match at the moment. Its 13-megapixel rear-facing camera is an equally welcome surprise.
  • Pros: Dependable performance, Well-built, smooth plastic body, Above-average main camera
  • Cons: Low pixel density, Poor battery life, Misplaced capacitive keys

Review: HTC Desire 816

yooip.com
12 July 2014
  • Summary: It's a relaxed cellphone to keep, but it's definitely on the big part and will be large for some. It's fairly thin at 8mm, but it is 156.6mm high and 78.7mm across. It is also fairly large at 165g. Glossy nasty does not get much sophisticated than this, but it's still shiny nasty. The components, construction, and colors emphasize me of Lumia line-up. The  HTC Desire 816 is clearly no leading style, but to be reasonable it does not bring a leading cost tag either.

  • Summary: Sin perder la perspectiva de que nos encontramos ante un gama media, y sin encontrar puntos débiles de gran relevancia –más allá de su tamaño en función del tamaño de la pantalla– el HTC Desire 816 cuenta con más inconvenientes que ventajas, lo que unido a un precio no excesivamente competitivo, hacen que quede en una posición poco ventajosa frente a otras alte​rnativas como el Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 , LG Optimus G Pro o, incluso, el One Max de la propia HTC.
  • Pros: Cámara principal, Calidad de sonido
  • Cons: Tamaño, Diseño, Nivel de brillo máximo

HTC Desire 816

  • Summary: A lot of people are comparing this phone to the iPhone 5C and I can see why. It has a colorful sleek design and a lot of the perks of having a high-end phone, be it the camera, processor or Android’s latest software so it all depends now on the pricing of the device, anything in the range of 3000 EGP will be money well spent.
  • Pros: Colorful design, Android software, decent camera and processor.
  • Cons: Physically large.

HTC Desire 816 ( grey)

CNET
10 July 2014
  • Summary: The HTC Desire 816's combination of solid design and quality performance strikes all the right chords to make it a compelling phone for its price.
  • Pros: The HTC Desire 816's plastic body is well built. The brilliant 5.5-inch HD display has excellent viewing angles, and the quad-core processor runs smoothly, with hardly any lag.
  • Cons: The glossy plastic rear is a fingerprint magnet, which is especially noticeable on the darker models. The lack of a removable battery is disappointing, given its relatively small capacity.

HTC Desire 816 Review

TechSpot
7 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Since the launch of the first successful large-screened smartphone back in 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Note, there has been a growing demand for devices with larger-than-normal displays. Samsung’s line of Notes has been a big seller for the Korean giant, but other companies such as Nokia, LG, Sony, Huawei, Asus and even HTC have also been jumping in on the party.

HTC Desire 816 Review: the mid-range phablet that makes sense

gearburn.com
1 July 2014
  • Conclusion: It has a good display, attractive design, excellent camera, dual SIM connectivity and performs daily tasks very well. Priced at around US$389 , the Desire 816 steals the show from its competitors, namely the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. The HTC Desire 816 is one of those mid-range phablets in the market which I can recommend to anyone.
