HTC Desire 816 Review

 

Introduction:
The HTC Desire 816 is the company’s offering in the mid-range phablet segment. The device shares similar features with HTC One mini 2 having the same chipset and camera. Since the maker is HTC, we do expect a decent design and HTC tries to impress in this category. For this price, the device directly competes with Moto X, Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 and Sony Xperia T2 Ultra. Let us see how it tries to excel in the competition.

 

Design & Display:
As stated earlier, the device falls under phablet segment sporting a 5.5 inch SLCD 2 display with 267ppi. The device’s design seems to be mainly inspired from the One Series. The device is decently thin at 7.9mm and also feels a bit lighter. Though the device is mainly made of plastic, the device looks absolutely stunning. This time, the power button comes on the side instead of being at the top. Colors look good on the display and there’s not much fading and viewing angles are also wide. Here the strange downside is the surface on the back. It looks glossy, doesn’t have any pattern or texture and looks a bit cheaper. The back surface also seems to be fingerprint magnet and prone to scratches.

 

User Interface:
The device comes up with Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 6 UI on top which we have seen in One M8. Most of the features and apps are similar but this phablet doesn’t support lockscreen gestures which we see in One M8. We also get the other HTC featured apps like BlinkFeed, Kid mode and Zoe. Overall Sense UI runs smoothly on this device and we hardly noticed any lag.

 

Camera, Audio:
The device comes with 13MP rear camera. This time, instead of troubling us with the Ultra Pixel Camera, HTC has given the usual BSI sensor. The front facing camera is of 1080p capable 5MP. The camera UI seems to be similar to One M8 and we get a bunch of camera modes for tweaking. The image quality is excellent with very little noise and distortion. The same impression is not observed in low light photography. Video recording is also surprisingly nice and allows 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps. Overall the image quality is really impressive. Regarding Audio, we have dual stereo speakers in the front. Though this is a mid-range device, this is one of the outstanding audio qualities we have ever seen.

Connectivity & Additional features:
The phone supports dual sim – dual standby functionality. The device supports Wi-Fi b/g/n, DLNA and Bluetooth 4.0 but lacks NFC (NFC is available for only few countries). There is also active noise cancellation with a secondary microphone. Infrared is also missing so you cannot use it as a remote control for various devices.

 

Performance & Battery:
The device is powered by Snapdragon 400 quadcore processor at 1.6GHz with 1.5GB RAM. The GPU provided is Adreno 305. With these specs we expected a good performance and the device is impressive in this category as well. In Antutu, it scored around 21k, and in Geekbench it scored 1510 which is higher Galaxy Grand 2 and Xperia T2 Ultra. Overall, the device has managed to live upto the expectations. The device comes with 2600mAh battery which is quite decent and should last for a day easily. There is an extreme power saving mode where you can squeeze the most out of the battery.

 

Pros:
Impressive design
Excellent camera in the segment
Good overall performance for multitasking and gaming
Good audio quality

 

Cons:
Plastic build – backpanel surface is glossy and feels cheap
Though audio quality is very good, loudness is not upto the same levels.
No NFC, Infrared.

 

Verdict:
Overall, HTC should be appreciated for bringing up such an excellent device for such a price. The performance is good, camera quality is impressive, audio and video capabilities are stunning along with a handsome looking design. What else do you expect in a device for such a price? We highly recommend the HTC Desire 816 and presently it seems a very reliable option in the segment.
