Not at all strong.
By shivamjassal7, 86 months ago
I had recently purchased this smartphone and it was working awesome, but yesterday it has fallen down from a height of 1 feet. There were cracks on the screen. First, I thought that the screen guard has been broken but when I removed the screen guard, I found that the screen was broken.

HTC Desire 820s is made for budget segment. ...
By 7494832, 87 months ago
HTC Desire 820s is the upcoming HTC device made for the budget segment. It will be priced at under RS 19000 hopefully. Instead of the monotonous phones made by HTC, this is slightly unique and different from others. One can see how- 1) Display- It comes with a huge a 5.5" 720p screen giving a poor 267 ppi pixel density. So, you might see colours turning on screen while auto rotation is on. The text is not that crisp and clear and it may be worse while browsing. The viewing angles are not that bad but still it is a disappointment for the HTC fans. You get the same design with dual speakers at the front and a soft, rugged polycarbonate body at the back which is prone to catch fingerprints. 2) Performance- It is supposed to boast a MT6752 chipset, which seems more powerful than the Snapdragon 615. It is going to have a 1.7 Ghz Octa Core processor clubbed with 2 GB RAM. This processor provides real life visuals, very smooth gaming and a fluid video playback. 2 GB of RAM sounds sufficient to handle multiple apps and games without any stutters. It will enhance the user experience by performing so well. You will love the blazing sharp rendering speeds for seamless web browsing. The GPU is unique too – Mali-T760, instead of Adreno. However, while comparing benchmark scores, it beated the Adreno 405. So you can play heavy games like Asphalt 8 with ease. Hence, its a plus point. 3) Software- It must come with the latest and the greatest Android Kitkat 4.4.4 which is obviously upgradable to Lollipop. HTC Sense UI 6.0. will run the interface. It is a killer combination if you see carefully. With Lollipop, better optimization of apps, cool animations, better notifications come into play while with the UI 6.0, you get the Zoe app, better customization of Blinkfeed and much more. Hence, it is a phone for the people and by the people. Customize it anyway you like. Hence, it is a winner.(You will get Lollipop after some time-90 days from release of official Lollipop) 4) Storage- It will have a 16GB internal storage which is expandable using microSD cards. Therefore, you can store almost everything and anything without any worry. 5) Camera- A 13 MP main camera and 8MP selfie camera is surely going to win hearts of millions of people. Keeping the interest of selfie lovers and photographers in mind, HTC has improved a lot. The main camera captures very crisp and clear photographs even in the dark, thanks to the dual LED flash. So, camera is damn good. 6) Battery- The new HTC Desire 820s will come with a Non removable 2600 maH battery which will last a day at least. However, still I do not think it is sufficient at such price. Due to a larger screen and a resource hungry system software, battery will drain faster. So, if you want a phone with a more battery life, decide carefully. Verdict- With a very thin design and dual sim capability, you also get more performance from it. It will deliver a wonderful user experience. However, there are a few cons which you must consider before buying- 1) It has a very big screen size which may or may not suit your requirement. 2) Battery life is very poor and may get exhausted in a day after heavy usage. 3) The resolution is very bad-267 ppi pixel density. So, I would not comment whether you should go for it or not. It is priced at under Rs 20000/- and you should decide whether to go for it or not. If these cons do not matter a lot to you, then go for it, otherwise drop it. Overall, personally I like it but it is priced a bit more. I give it 4.2 stars.(read more)
