  • HTC Desire 816 review: the stylish dual-SIM phablet that leaves little to be desired

     "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 f...

    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; Photos and video by Pratik Vyas

    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, ...

    Best Features: NIl

    Pros: ????

    Cons: Many more

    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 doesnot replacepart 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 deivice is warranted for one year!!! Sincere request that nodonot waste your HARD EARNED money on such company devices whatever publicity they have...
