HTC Desire 816 review: Heart's desire

21 May 2014
HTC has mostly stayed out of the phablet market but the segment is expanding so fast the Taiwanese canít afford to keep snubbing it. The HTC Desire 816 is only the company's second phablet and itís the first affordable one. It rides on the premium looks...

I love my HTC desire 816! From iPhone to Android and I will say I will never go back! Camera is great! 4g/3g is fast, battery life is great, I used my power save so it last me all day even on fb,games ect. I have no lag what so ever! And the boom sound well you just gotta try because this phone compared to iPhone 6 I still would pick this one. For a phonetablet, on a cheap network is worth it. Sad that VM disconnected the phone.

The update to Lollipop took about 20 minutes so be sure the battery is well charged. The phone works perfectly with no settings or contacts affected. Over the next few days I'll have to see what Lollipop can do.
Note: I have the Virgin Mobile version of this phone. I would guess that unlocked 816s would have similar update results but no guarantees.

This phone has very poor network reception, I go into the mall and the bars go to zero, I go into my house and the bars go to zero, this is a total waste of money and anyone wishing to buy it be prepared for the worst
