    "The HTC Desire 816 might just be the dual-SIM phablet you’re looking for"There used to be a time, not too long ago, when our digital lives used to centre around three different screens – our televisions, our laptops or PCs, and our phones. Not anymore. Tablets landed bang in the middle of the laptops and phones and changed things significantly. Don’t forget that some of the laptops available these days can be flipped around or detached fro...

    Pros: Stylish looks; Smooth performance; Supports CDMA on the primary slot; Capable snapper; Very good battery life ;

    Cons: Large size could be unwieldy for some; Glossy plastic back could be prone to scratches; No killer feature;

    Verdict: A smartphone is supposed to be a Swiss Army knife, serving up a multitude of functionalities rather than just being a communications device. And when it comes to versatility, the HTC Desire 816 manages to differentiate itself well amongst the crowd, ...

    Pros: 13 MP + 5 MP cameras,
    Good Processor, Latest android version, decent size,
    Good quality plastic.

    Cons: No Gorilla Glass
    Non removable battery

    Overall: This range of Phone (Phablet) should come with Corning Gorilla Glass Protection. The Screen replacement would cost atleast 7500/-. Please ask company to change to Gorilla glass immediately.

    Pros: ?????

    Cons: Pathetic after sales warranty & service

    Overall: After long standing Nokia I turned to Android phone & thinking HTC as the best ( Going away from samsung, Moto, LG & Sony) ,I purchased HTC Dual 600 for INR 27K last year. The blunder in my life to see that the device needed mother board replacement within 5 months and second time after 07 months !!!! Reason given :HTC doesnt replace part which are mounted on motherboard but need to replace the motherboard itself. Very funny to learn that the replaced motherboard has warranty of 03 months only . Whereas the entire device is warranted for one year!!! Sincere request that do not waste your HARD EARNED money on such company devices whatever publicity they have...
