HTC Desire 816

Mid-ranger that feels like a flagship.
Released summer 2014, the Desire 816 from HTC is the perfect device for those who want a midrange phablet with great camera capabilities. The handset is often compared to the Lumia 1320 and the OnePlus One.

With a 5.5-inch 720p display, the HTC Desire 816 is firmly in the phablet camp. Unlike the HTC 2014 flagship, the HTC One M8, which is made from metal, the Desire 816 is made from plastic. However, it feels sturdy and looks great. The matte finish and rounded corners stop the device from looking cheap and make it comfortable to hold. We especially like the detail of the speaker holes on the front of the device. In addition, this cellphone is available in 6 great shades: black, white, green, gray, dark blue and red.

The HTC Desire 816 is powered by Android KitKat and is overlaid with HTC’s Sense 6 user interface. The main advantage of the Sense UI is BlinkFeed. BlinkFeed is a content aggregator which streamlines all of your feeds into one, making it even easier to find out what’s going on in your circles. The phone runs smoothly thanks to its hardy 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 and 1.5GB of RAM.

The Desire 816 is fitted with a 2,600mAh battery. Although it is by no means the most capacious battery out there, it can store enough power to get you through the day. In addition, should you find that you are running low on power, you can simply activate the Extreme Power Saving mode which turns off all but the necessary functions and can give you up to an extra day of power.

As mentioned in the introduction, one of the major attractions of the HTC Desire 816 is its awesome photography capabilities. On the back of the phone there is a 13MP camera which is perfect for both taking photographs and shooting video. Indeed, the Desire 816 shoots video is amazing 1080p HD. On the front of the phone there is an impressive 5MP camera which is great for high-quality front-facing shots and making video calls.

Working alongside the camera and gallery application is Video Highlights. This allows you to quickly make a short video of a collection of images. You can choose the background music and a theme that you feel complements it. Once you have put your perfect video together Video Highlights give you to option to share it with contacts or social media.
