HTC Desire 826 REVIEW:

HTC Desire 826: Comes with Full HD Screen and Octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset 

Introduction: HTC Desire 826 is the latest addition to the HTC’s popular mid-range portfolio. HTC’s recent efforts to add more phones with varying features and affordability are being rewarded by the increasing number of customers. The Desire 826 is one such phone which can entice Indian customers withits features and pricing.

Features: The HTC Desire 826 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor which is an Octa-core 64 bit version. It is an upgrade from the quad-core version found in Desire 820. This is an ideal strategy to use the 64-bit Android 5.0.1 Lollipop that it runs. The device has an Adreno 405 GPU that handles the graphic-intensive activities quite well. Additionally, there is 2 GB of RAM that should perform your tasks like a breeze. On the hardware front, the device comes with 16 GB of on-board storage, further expandable by up to 128 GB, and a suite of connectivity options. The 826 comes with Android Lollipop OS out of the box. It also has HTC’s Sense UI interlaced with the OS. The Sense UI makes any Lollipop related designs and add-ons look pretty neat. It also features recent apps screen, the notification dropdown, and lock screen, along with minor changes across the board. The Sense UI has been evolving over the years and it handles the Android OS with smooth precision.

The device features a Compass / magnetometer, a Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient Light Sensor. It lacks a Gyroscope, barometer and a Temperature Sensor. It has the HTML enabled browser with Java support. The Browser supports Flash too. Its advantage of supporting 3G connectivity is a cherry on the topping for various smart phone users. As far as messaging goes, the Desire 826 features SMS (threaded view) MMS, Email as well as Push Email support.

Display and Design: The Desire 826 is the successor of Desire 820. That being said, it borrows its design language majorly from the Desire Eye. The device uses dual-tone colour elements and has front-facing Boom Sound speakers. It has Dolby Digital enhancement, which provides an even more immersive experience. Albeit a few errors, one cannot deny the excellent sound quality the HTC smart phones have. The device has HTC’s signature placed in a small and convenient gap between the display and the top and bottom bezels. The Desire 826 features an IPS LCD display with 1080p resolution. The 5.5 inch screen has 67.2% screen-to-body-ratio. The display has 401 ppi pixel density and with the HTC Sense at task, the display seems quite vibrant. The phone weighs 155 grams. The Desire 826 has quite an attractive front display that is quite neatly packed. On the top panel of this device is a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Towards the left side of the device is a flap under which, there are 3 different slots for memory cards, USB port and such. The right side of the device holds the power button as well as the volume keys.

The device carries a duo-tone rubbery matte appearance. Its front facing camera is placed on the center with the hidden pair of Boom Sound Stereo Speakers. The rear side has a very elegant look with the rear camera placed towards the top right-end corner. The flash is placed beneath the camera. The rear center placement of the HTC logo makes it appear like a high-end smart phone. The rear-lower side has the design pattern of the model number. Overall, the HTC Desire 826 is quite an attractive looking smart phone.

Battery: The HTC Desire 826 packs a 2600 mAh battery pack. This is a removable battery and the overall backup is pretty decent. Talktime available is up to 15 hours.

Camera and Multimedia: HTC has been victorious when it comes to the smart phone camera department. Most of the HTC mid range and flagship devices have had excellent photo-savvy cameras. The Desire 826 is no exception. It has a 4 MP Ultrapixel front Camera that is also found in the HTC One (M8) and One (M7). The Ultrapixel camera allows better lowlight photography. The device is an excellent companion for taking self portraits.

The primary 13 Megapixel camera on this device can take pictures up to 4160 x 3120 pixels. It also has Auto Focus and LED Flash. The camera features Geo-Tagging, Touch Focus, Face Detection, Simultaneous HD Video and Image recording as well as High Dynamic Range. The Desire 826 has stereo speakers with built in amplifiers.
