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

Jul 01 2014 By Deepak Dhingra
  • Stylish looks
  • Smooth performance
  • Supports CDMA on the primary slot
  • Capable snapper
  • Very good battery life
  • Large size could be unwieldy for some
  • Glossy plastic back could be prone to scratches
  • No killer feature

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, standing out thanks to a good blend of looks and performance.One of our gripes with the device is that it doesn’t really have that one killer feature that would make it extremely flaunt-worthy. It’s also quite large for a device with a 5.5-inch display. However, it racks up brownie points on most other fronts. In case you need a phablet with CDMA support, the Desire 816 should be at the very top of your list. If you don’t need CDMA however, you have loads of choice in the same price bracket. While the Gionee Elife E7  (review) trumps over the Desire 816 in terms of specs, do note that it’s not dual-SIM and runs an older version of Android. In terms of dual-SIM support, the Micromax Canvas Gold looks quite worthy and features loaded specs, though we can’t comment on its real-life performance yet. Sony’s Xperia T2 Ultra Dual (review) is also a strong competitor, but we think the Desire 816 is a better choice.  The HTC Desire 816 has quite a few things in its favour. Its standout design makes it quite covetable, but it scores on quite a few other parameters, offering a lovely screen, smooth performance, a decent camera and very good battery life. And for most, this combination should be more than enough.

Please explain Flipkart!
30 May 2014 By abhishek goswami On

I did a google search of the product and i saw the results show flipkart sell this product for Rs.23,999! when i clicked on it it shows 26k+.nnplease explain this flipkart and why is it so overpriced in here...whereas every other e-commerce website is selling it for 23,999 to 24,799 at max!nnplease either you sell at a believable price or give a cash back for the difference or do anything to make up for the price gap! probably the vendors your dealing with are taking every effort to put your name down! please have a look!

Do not buy Desire 816 for 26900, already in stores at 23500 or less
28 May 2014 By R S On

Cons:n--Good for the price but i think no gorilla glass so handle your cell with care.n--Power and volume keys are at left so choose before buying.n--LCD 2 which is last year technology.n--Battery drains fast when you play games.nnPROS: For the price with 5.5 inch its great to have one go for it and flaunt.nnDo not buy this cell for 26900 as it is already in stores of mumbai for 23500.nnWait for 4-5 days more .nn1 star for the seller and flipkart for choosing such seller to enter who charge above the market rate price.nnMy impression for flipkart changed.
