Searched it heaven and hell finally bought it from Mobiliti World Pune at 23499 best price in market.
In terms of performance and features still exploring but till now no dissatisfaction from any angle.
Camera best with many added features of editing photos.
Blink is the HATKE feature from other smartphone.
Best smartphone to buy in mid range segment !!!!!!

Today i finally bought a 816 with my friend. We got it for 23500 at Allahabad, UP after bargaining a lot with the seller. The phone is well built,feels solid in hand, attractive, huge, clear display with no pixelation visible to naked eye, fluid, good overall but i personally didnt like the rear camera quality.It didn't seem to stood well for a 13 mp rear camera and many pics came out to be blurry on auto mode and even on HDR mode in well lit conditions, though front 5 mp camera is good for a 5 mp camera and even it captured the spots on our face and we have to use the inbuilt softening tool to hide them. Cannot comment on the battery backup as its too soon to comment. Yes it provides a earphone in box. Contacts can be very easily transferred from any phone as ours was a nokia 5800 xpress music and it went copying so easily and fast. It reads a pendrive using a OTG cable but since file manager cannot be used on htc 816 so we were unable to access data stored on pendrive. The news is that HTC has adopted the policy of pushing the other less sold models along with htc 816 as the many retailers told us that on placing a order for 5 other htc models we are getting 1 htc 816 with it. HTC is trying to encash maximum benefits from htc 816.Very unfair htc as users are suffering due to it. Will update with more details soon.

I'm using HTC 816 it's jst an amazing phone....!!

  • A joshi

I really liked the specs of HTC desire 816. But I have certain concerns:
1) It has an in built battery . Does this pose a problem? that is if the battery conks off, you may have to replace the entire phone.
2)HTC does not have many service centres as samsung has. Do I have to worry about this?
3) In terms of longevity or durability of HTC phones
4)Various sellers of phone shops say that htc has compatibilty issues. All parts within it do not belong to the company and hence may be incompatible.
5) That the phone gets heated up

All these negative points have been raised by the salesmen in various mobile shops. Are they dissuading me from buying HTC for their own ulterior motives or is it really so.
Pl do reply to my queries
Thank you

Hi to everyone. It has been close to 5 days since i bought this beauty and it definitely needs an appreciation. (Btw i got this phone from sangeetha mobiles in chennai for 23k. OMG, the store guy gave me an power bank free of cost which has a battery of 2600Mah i.e the same power as that of the phone. He also gave one year extended warranty free of cost which also covered defect due to water logging which is generally not covered in the manufacturer warranty. This is awesome :)....

I went for the white color and one word to say abt it - ITS SEXY.... But sadly i had a lil scratch on the rear paner besides the camera....

The phone is not at all bulky and infact i was surprised by its weight and it fits perfectly in the jeans pocket or shorts....

The processor is simply awesome.... I am a heavy user and an avid gamer. I have used micromax canvas 2 previously and before that used xperia neo V. After using such laggy phones for quite some time, every time when i press the home button or when i make a call or when i open any apps, it opens within blink of an eye. I am yet to face any lag issue (and hope not to find any further)....

The camera does its job decently. I used the free flip cover that was given with the phone. When i took photos with flash, i found the photos to be too exposed to flash. I tried to use all the settings in the phone but was unable to find an solution to the over flash exposure. Then all of a suddent thought of removing the flipcover and took a phot with the flash and VIOLA the picture was perfect. So my piece of advise would be to remove the phone from the flipcover if u want to take photos especially with flash....

The battery is really good. I am just using a single sim with 3g fully on and i am getting close to 18-20 hrs of life....

Hence to sum up, this phone really met all my expectations of owning a decent phone without any lag and decent camera. Kudos to HTC for bringing out such a gem....
