HTC Desire 816G REVIEW:


HTC is becoming a familiar player in India and launched great looking smart phones in the recent past with its devices ranging across all the categories for people belonging to all walks of life. India seems to be home to quite many brands and quite a lot of competition. The entry level as well as the mid-budget segment has taken a strong liking by the Indian customers. HTC has launched three new smart phones in the Desire series, the Desire 820, Desire 820Q as well as the Desire 816G. As an extension to the Desire 816, the company has launched a cheaper (mid budget) version known as the 816G Dual-SIM.

The Desire 816G is available in India at the price tag of Rs. 18,990*/-. Let’s find out if the HTC Desire 816G will make it or break the deal in India?

The Desire 816G comes with the latest version of the Android Operating System, the 4.4 KitKat. HTC has given this device a decent hardware that includes a 1.3 GHz MediaTek quad core processor that comes along with 1GB of RAM. The device has Java support and the browser supports flash. The device comes with HTC’s home brewed Sense (6) User Interface.  The device has a Compass/ Magnetometer along with Proximity sensor, Accelerometer sensor as well as the Ambient light sensor but lacks Gyroscope, Barometer or even a Temperature sensor.  The Android platform has HTC BlinkFeed™ and has HTC Apps support. The Sense User Interface looks quite classy on the HTC devices and the device has a fair share of features and specifications.

Design and Display:

The Desire 816G measures 156.60 x 78.70 x 7.90 mm which is slim enough as smart phones go. The device weighs 158 grams and looks pretty good. The design is shared from its older cousin, the Desire 816. Most HTC devices have always shared a unique design and a touch of sophistication with them, no wonder why this brand is gaining all the reputation it deserves.

In terms of the Screen, the Desire 816G has a huge 5.5 inch LCD capacitive touch screen with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution as well as 16 Million colors integration with Multi touch capability. You might also like the Dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers on this device named HTC Boom Sound that sound very good. HTC has done a tremendous job with the speakers mated on to most of their prominent smart phones. There are volume rockers on the left hand side of the device along with the power button. The placement of the primary camera on the rear end side of the device shares a similarity with the iPhone. There is an LED Flash that resides just behind the primary rear facing camera; there is a Micro USB provision along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack provision on this device.

If you are looking to buy this smart phone then you might like the color range these handsets come in. You might like Black, White, Red, Green or the Purple color.

Network and Connectivity:

The Dual SIM enabled device has 2G as well as 3G connectivity, the device connects with 2G networks through 2.5G-GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900MHz bands on both Sim1 and Sim2 as well as 3G networks along with WCDMA on Sim 1: 900/2100MHz bands along with HSPA+ up to 21Mbps speed. As far as connectivity goes this device has a good share of connectivity features that include Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz) Bluetooth (Bluetooth® 4.0 with aptX™ enabled) GPS (A GPS) HTC Connect™, 3.5 mm stereo audio jack along with a Micro-USB 2.0 (5-pin) port that allows charging but, there isn’t a Proprietary charging connector or even a Proprietary data connector with this device. The smart phone has Near Field Communication (NFC) and supports Nano SIM cards (2 slots) but lacks Infrared, DLNA, Wi-FI Direct, MHL Out and HDMI port.


The HTC Desire 816G has an Embedded rechargeable (non removable) Lithium-Polymer Li-Po 2600 mAh battery that offers a Talk time of Up to 10 hours for 3G connectivity as well as a Stand by time of up to 460 hours.  There are really good smart phone rivals that offer more features than this device and seem quite interesting. But, when it comes to offering a good battery that lasts long, well, most devices fail. Thankfully, this smart phone has a decent battery with a decent back up. So, it surely feels a lot friendlier in the users hand than plugged into the charging socket.

Camera and Multimedia:

Another reason for you to like this device is the fact that there is an amazing primary rear facing camera that has a 13 Megapixel BSI (Back illuminated sensor) sensor that shoots stunning pictures and videos. If you like shooting videos, the device offers 1080 p video HD recording with LED flash and Auto Focus along with an f/2.2 aperture. In case you are wondering about the front facing shooter, this device has a very classy 5 Megapixel BSI ((Back illuminated sensor) sensor enabled front facing shooter that shoots beautiful selfies and makes good quality video calls. It can also record 1080 p videos.

There is more to this device than just the camera; the 8GB of internal memory is accompanied by 1GB of RAM that comes with an expansion card slot that supports Micro SD memory cards for up to 32GB additional storage (card not included) The device has HTC Boom Sound along with Dual frontal stereo speakers that support MP3 / eAAc+ / WAV / Flac supporting audio player and an X vid / MP4 / H.263 / H. 264 supporting video player.

Bottom Line:

Quite a pleasing device in the mid budget range with decent offerings and the right amount of bells and whistles. If you are looking for a mid budget companion, this might be it.
