Best Mid Range Android experience

HTC desire 816 ticks all the boxes [at least for me!] when it comes to owning a Mid range Android phone and IMO trumps the competitors out of the water in most of the areas:
1. Performance: For an average user like me with productivity/work related apps running during weekdays and casual gaming during weekends [aka Asphalt 8] the desire 816 gives a zero lag experience. I guess the 1.5GB RAM does the trick. On the video front, it plays 1080p videos without any lag.
2. Screen quality: Most of the PPI advertised [greater than 250] is very difficult to discern on such a small screen. I think it is more of a marketing gimmick to make specs stand out. I find the screen in HTC 816 [PPI of 267] to be excellent for viewing webpages, reading books on Play books app or the Kindle app, or viewing images. Viewing angles are also very good. But visibility in the broad day light under sun is bit difficult, and you will need to crank up the brightness. Indoors brightness at 30% itself is very bright for my requirement.
3. Camera: The rear 13MP camera clicks pretty good pics indoor and outdoors. While taking brightly lit subjects outdoor, it tends to get overexposed at times, but the same can be corrected by taking multiple shots or manually changing exposure value. Front 5MP also click very good pics and excellent for Video calls/Hangouts.
4. Audio Output: Desire 816 has stereo speakers with Boomsound which can give a very pleasurable listening experience and we can avoid going for head phone always as in other phones. The sound is definitely not tinny like other phones in the price range. The Audio DAC used by HTC also is very good and with a good App like Poweramp and set of nice headphones you can really feel the difference. Those using this as an audio player will like this. The stock headphones that come with this are ordinary ones, nothing spectacular, can be used for voice chat/casual music etc. For serious listening consider an upgrade.
5. Memory: The 8GB internal storage is very less since the usable memory is around 3.95GB only. This is one major drawback for anyone trying to install multiple heavy games [like FIFA/Asphalt]. For media storage etc, you can install up to 128GB via Micro SD card. I have a 64GB Sandisk MicroSD card installed and it works without any issues. Moving apps to memory card won't work for all apps and those which can be moved, will move only partial data to SD card. So memory is a limitation for heavy users. For the rest of the folks like me, this is more than sufficient
6. Battery: With moderate usage I'm getting around 1.5 to 2 day from full charge to 15%. Again it depends on the settings and what Apps you allow to Sync, but overall pretty good. An improvement compared to Nexus 5 I used before
7. Build: Battery is non user replaceable and the build quality is very solid, like the Lumia range Windows devices. Volume button quality is not good though
8. Call quality: I would say it is good and clarity is also great
9. Others: Has DLNA, so you will be able to stream content to compatible devices and can be used as Media server. India version of the Desire 816 is a 3G model with Dual SIM, no 4G variant available. I'm using the white model, since the black had a glossy back which was attracting lot of fingerprints. I haven't tested USB OTG, so can't comment on it. Comes with Android Kitkat out of the box with HTC Sense 6 version. I found the Sense 6 to be superior to the stock Android in Nexus 5 in many areas, any case that is subjective!

I would recommend this phone to any Android user over Samsung/Sony/LG offerings in the same price bracket. It is a definite VFM option out there!

HTC desire truly heart desire,,......

i am giving this review after using this phone for over a month.....
1. performance: with 1.6 ghz processor and 1.5 gb of ram this phone is a performance monster.. within my i month of usage this phone haven't lag or hang for a single occasion.. even with heavy multitasking...
2. display: it has got 720p hd display..but with htc's amazing brigthness i assure it is really hard to differentiate from full hd 1080p screen.... it is truly vibrant...AND.... with super LCD 2 screen it has amazing viewing angle..
3.sound: now i have listen to samsung, sony, nokia.... what i can say is htc BOOM sound is the best... period...u want loud music ... i assure you.. with head phones you can't listen to music at max volume.. u want deep bass.... rocking treble....crisp and clear music with every detail.... yeah this is the phone for without headphone.... yeah this is loud... definitely loud... but not only that... quality and details of the music well preserved... plus the widely placed FRONT SPEAKERS produces good stereo effect..
4.gaming: yeah compatible with high end games... i have played THE DARK KNIGT RISES, FIFA 2014,, temple run oz, gta series,, front line commander,, asphalt air bourne.... no lag... no problem... runs smoothly....
5. battery life: very good... ok.. i have played fifa 2014 for constant 6 hours with max setting.... with 10% remaining... thats good enough for me.... and yes.. it has got EXTREME BATTERY SAVING MODE... dont know what thas is?/ well if u have left 10% battery remaining and u enable this mode... the battery will last for more 90 to 120 mins... obviously if u r not using it...
6.touch: touch response is very good... sentivity is amazing but not finger nail sensitive though... 10 multi touch point... quality: good .. haven't face any problem yet..
8. camera: best in this price range.. period.... there are many videos in you tube regarding its camera quality ..check those out...
CONS: sreen protection... yeah no gorrila glass or anything... nfc in asian models
3.screen being this large, option for single handed control would have been good...
4. fluctuating and variable price.... BUT THAT IS NOT THE PHONE'S FAULT IT'S SELLERS
VERDICT: this is a amazing in this price bracket till date.. use it to know it,.. u will not be dissapointed...
