The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with HTC’s beautiful Sense UI. The Sense UI has clean, and attractive looks with its beautifully crafted icons, wallpapers, and especially system sound. The device is expected to receive the newer version of Android, but HTC has not yet revealed any plans for it. The device is packed with an outdated Snapdragon 400 chipset which is rather disappointing, as almost all the other devices that are cheaper than Desire 825 are packed with the 64-bit processor. The chipset contains four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1.6GHz and Adreno 305 GPU for graphics performance. The multitasking is handled by 2GB of RAM
while the storage is handled by 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded with the help of a dedicated microSD card slot.
