  • Conclusion: The HTC Desire 816 is a good mid-range phone that competes squarely against others in the market from the likes of Nokia or Lenovo. It’s certainly not as flashy as the HTC One, but that’s to be expected in order to keep it affordable.
  • Pros: + Great speakers, + Fuss-free design, + Decent camera
  • Cons: - Awkward to use with one hand, - Screen brightness can be disappointing at times, - Average battery life

One At Heart: HTC Desire 816 review

  • 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.

Review: HTC Desire 816

  • 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.

  • 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...
  • Pros: Colorful design, Android software, decent camera and processor.
  • Cons: Physically large.
