HTC’s mid-range phablet, Desire 816 got a decent reaction from Indian shoppers with its great gimmick to value proportion (when it dispatched in June). Presently, the Taiwanese organization has dispatched the telephone’s successor that packs in an all the more effective processor, a superior front cam and Gorilla Glass 3 screen security, in addition to different changes. Other than these, the telephone is fundamentally the same to Desire 816. It is safe to say that it is a decent purchase? We attempt to figure out in our survey…

Fabricate & plan

HTC Desire 820 looks fundamentally the same to the organization’s mid-range phablet Desire 816, complete with the unibody plastic shell, adjusted corners and front double stereo speakers.

Since the telephone wears a huge, 5.5-inch show, the general foot shaped impression is likewise extensive. That said, it doesn’t look inconvenient.

Not at all like the Desire 816, the 820 games double tone colors with the second color making its vicinity felt in type of stresses encompassing the front board, volume rocker and force keys, micro-USB jack, cam lens and LED blaze and the HTC logo.

The telephone doesn’t don physical keys at the front and uses onscreen keys for route. Dissimilar to the Desire 816, the Power/Screen lock and the volume rocker keys are placed at the right edge of the telephone and offer great material criticism. The left side games a plastic fold that shrouds the two nano-sim card spaces and a microsd card space. Other than that, there’s no significant contrast between the two telephones as far as configuration. Indeed the measurements are very nearly indistinguishable.

The showcase is flanked by double stereo Boomsound speakers on both sides. The speaker barbecue fits in a solitary line, with greater openings not at all like the HTC One’s flame broil that is spread in excess of four lines.

The 8mp front-confronting cam lens sits over the presentation and is conspicuously obvious. The 3.5mm headset jack sits at the top while the micro-USB port is put at the base edge.

The again of the telephone offers the 13mp back cam and a LED glimmer. It dons a gleaming complete and gets effortlessly smirched.

Albeit made of plastic with a polished completion, the assemble nature of the Desire 820 is really great and oozes a premium vibe


HTC Desire 820 accompanies Android 4.4.4 Kitkat with Sense 6, the most recent rendition of HTC’s custom UI, running on top.

Not at all like HTC One (M8), Desire 820 does not offer help for signals like ‘twofold tap to open’ and ‘swipe to open’ to a home screen/Blinkfeed. The motions would have boded well on 820 provided for its greater structure element and the ungainly position of the Power/Unlock key.

While the UI looks altogether different from stock Android, we very like the Sense 6 interface. It doesn’t look altogether different from that of the past adaptation of Sense.

It brandishes the on-screen route keys which shroud while playing diversions and utilizing applications that make utilization of Android’s new immersive mode. For all the more on the client interface, you can look at our HTC One (M8) survey.


Much the same as the Desire 816, Desire 820 doesn’t emphasize a Ultrapixel cam. Rather, it incorporates a 13mp BSI sensor with f/2.2 gap and a 28mm lens.

Wish 820 likewise doesn’t accompany HTC Imagechip. This implies that gimmicks like the Zoe mode are excluded and the cam takes additional time to process the picture in the wake of catching it.

Pictures shot with the telephone in ideal light looked extraordinary. Shade proliferation, presentation and difference were simply right and pictures looked common. We had a few issues catching macro pictures as the center lock was not exceptionally responsive. We contrasted it and the Desire 816 and found that peculiarly center lock was quicker and responsive on the 816. This could be a product issue.

Low-light photographs (without the utilization of night mode) looked uproarious and needed subtle element. The cam additionally offers Panorama and HDR modes.

The telephone is equipped for catching 1080p features and did not disillusion us regarding sound and feature quality.

Craving 820’s front-cam has a 8mp sensor with f2.0 wide point lens for taking selfies. It additionally incorporates a clock switch and touchup characteristic for improved selfies. The telephone clicks great quality selfies and offers various choices to dispense with flaws, fix red eye and whiten skin tone. The 8mp front cam is the highlight of the telephone and will satisfy all self sweethearts.


HTC Desire 820 is fueled by a 1.5ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-center processor and 2gb RAM. Despite the fact that it is a mid-range gadget, the 820 never felt underpowered with the fittings being equipped for supporting multitasking and gaming without hiccups.

It’s justified even despite indicating out that the 64-bit building design is not upheld by Android 4.4. Likewise, telephones still need more memory to completely influence 64-bit capacities (better memory administration) and 2gb would not by any stretch of the imagination suffice.

In our utilization, we didn’t perceive any slack while propelling and exchanging between applications, altering photographs, scanning the web, clicking pictures, viewing superior quality features, or playing representation substantial diversions on Desire 820.


We had the capacity play diversions like Looney Tunes Dash, Leo’s Fortune, Riptide Gp2 and Asphalt 8 (with Visual Quality set to High and Engine at 100%) without experiencing casing drops or stops. The telephone has a tendency to get somewhat warm after long gaming sessions.
