HTC Desire 616 REVIEW:


HTC has been launching several low end devices to attract customers in the segment and thereby gain a huge market. The Desire 616 is one of such devices with a decent spec sheet and competes in the sub 20k segment. Though there are several devices from other manufacturers with similar specs and performance, the HTC device should have something special to be on the sweet spot. Let us see whether it really has an edge over other devices.


Design & Display:
First of all the device looks elegant. It looks identical to Desire 816, but a bit smaller in size. The device sports a 5 inch 720p display with onscreen navigation keys instead of capacitive buttons. The viewing angles are wide and colors are decent and doesn’t show the impression of fading out. The strange issue with the device is polycarbonate back with a glossy finish. Yes, this doesn’t really look good and attracts fingerprints and smudges too easily. May be HTC decided for this to reduce the cost but could have given a matte texture on the back instead of picking up glossy.


User Interface:
The device has Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean onboard but hasn’t been given the latest Sense 6 UI and instead it runs on Sense 5.5. We get BlinkFeed app like other HTC devices. Other than that everything looks decent, the UI is more fluid and there weren’t any lags.


Camera, Audio:
The phone comes up with 8MP camera with 1080p video recording and also a front facing camera of 2MP capable of 720p recording. The camera UI is basically stock, along with a bunch of options for tweaking. The image quality of the 8MP camera is really good and produces sharper pictures. The noise is little, the color reproduction is good and moreover, we didn’t face any shutter lag while taking pictures. The same image quality is not found when it comes to low light and the pictures tend to lose the sharpness and appear grainy. Overall, the camera is quite good in the segment.
There is a grill above the display but it is not actually a loudspeaker grill, it is for the earpiece. The loudspeaker grill is at the back and though the audio quality is good, it is not so loud enough.


Connectivity & Additional features:
The device comes with dual sim support for GSM connectivity. Once you remove the back panel you can see two sim slots, but one is a regular sim slot and the other is a mini sim slot. We get Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0 along with 3G capability. Though the internal storage is limited to 4GB, the device also supports external memory cards upto 32GB so there shouldn’t be any issue with storage.


Performance & Battery:
This is one of the first HTC’s smartphones with an octa core chip. The device is fitted with Mediatek 6592 processor downclocked to 1.4GHz along with 1GB RAM. The performance of the device is a bit surprising with Antutu Score of 23k. This is even better than Galaxy Grand 2 and Moto X. The battery is of 2000mAh but it doesn’t look like the device has a proper battery optimization and battery drains quicker than we expected. The device also seems to heat up occasionally while playing intense games. But don’t worry, the battery backup is still okay, it only doesn’t live upto expectations.


Octa Core processor
Decent looks
Good Camera


No KitKat onboard
Glossy back
Loudspeakers are not loud enough
Battery backup could have been better


So far the Desire 616 is looks decent enough for such a price tag. The phone looks good, camera is decent and it’s a mid-range phone with an octa core processor. The device seems definitely better than Moto G and has even better performance than Moto X and Grand 2. Ofcourse the battery backup seems unimpressive and occasional heating might worry you. So we have a mixed verdict and whether or not to choose the device, depends on the user and don’t worry, it doesn’t disappoint you at all.


Compare HTC Desire 616 with Gionee Elife E7 Mini, Panasonic P81, Karbonn Titanium Octane, Xiaomi Redmi Note, WickedLeak Wammy Passion X, WickedLeak Wammy Titan 3 Octa, Intex Aqua Octa, Micromax A350 Canvas Knight and Gionee Elife S5.5.
