How is HTC Desire 820 to Look Like?

HTC desire 820 is giving a tough time to its competitor phones. Due to its unique dual color look it attracts the smart phone buyers to itself. This handset is available in the following colors i.e. Milk white, grey, white, saffron, blue and orange. As compared to its previous model HTC desire 816, the new HTC desire 820 is far better.

As you can see in the picture that two colors are mixed brilliantly. This fusion of two colors is giving unique look to this handset. The top corner camera style is quite impressing and attractive.

It has 16 GB internal storage with RAM memory of 2048 Mb (2GB). 16 GB internal storage is good and admirable but the capacity of RAM is little low. The RAM should be 4GB because we have seen many quadcore Smartphone having 2GB RAM that’s why I am little bit disappointed with the RAM memory. For 8 core handset the RAM should be of minimum 4GB.
  • As like every other Smartphone this handset contains both Primary and secondary camera. The primary camera is of 13 Mega pixels and secondary camera of 8 Mega pixels. 8 Megapixels secondary is something very attractive for users.

Trend in Asian market

When we talk about the taste of Asian Smartphone user, we have to keep following things in our mind because these are some important feature which every Asian Smartphone buyer wants in Asia i.e. Very fast processor, High memory RAM, high quality camera, HD format video support and a long battery time. HTC desire has every feature which an Asian Smartphone user always desired. Asian user always wants a handset with low price and advanced features. HTC desire 820 will reign Asian Smartphone market due to its middle range price and very much advanced features. This handset will definitely satisfy Asian Smartphone user because it offers very much advanced features in a normal price.


The combination of Octa core processor and 2GB RAM is not impressive. We have seen in the market that many dual cores Smartphone have 2GB built-in RAM. So in term of RAM selection this handset is not giving any tough competition to its competitor handsets. Minimum of 4GB built in RAM should be offered with Octa core handsets. HTC should consider this technical point in the launching of their next handset. 64 bit processor should have minimum 4GB RAM to show its real power but company has taken wrong decision in using only 2GB built in RAM. 64 bit processor is something new in android handsets and its processing speed needs high RAM memory.


Truly speaking, this handset is the best handset released ever in the section of middle priced android handsets. It will be priority of the Smartphone buyer in every market especially in Asian market.

HTC Desire 820 Rating

This handset deserves very good rating. I will give this handset a deserving 8/10.
