In what could be considered a comeback of sorts, thanks to good sales of the Desire 816 and the One (M8), HTC is following Samsung's footsteps by announcing new phones left, right and centre. Recently, the company announced the HTC Desire 816G, which is supposedly a 3G-only variant of the Desire 816 with watered-down specifications. We loved the Desire 816 for its great 13-megapixel camera and its media playback capabilities. Let's hope that the Taiwanese smartphone company can recreate the same magic with the new Desire 816G.

HTC Desire 816G Summary

HTC tried to capitalise on the success of the HTC Desire 816 by creating a low-cost variant of the phone in the form of the HTC Desire 816G. However, it only managed to botch up the effort by creating a product we weren’t ultimately too enthusiastic about. The phone doesn’t have the same stellar camera nor the reliable performance we experienced in its elder brother.

SIM card slot has issue , automatically ejects the SIM (for this issue entire mother board need to change in mobile so it will took 20days to order and get the mobile from Hyderabad Service center ) 4.All over State has 1 service center is the major issue Hyderabad Service center has very poor man power and even they didn't mention proper ETA , the way they responds is worse. (you need to wait for 3 to 4 hours to submit a request) Submitted my mobile in Hyderabad HTC service Center on 16th December 2014 , the same day, I saw the others with the same mobile almost 7 issues found in the same model HTC 816G Model. All are having Charging issues and Signal & SIM Slot issue This ticket number given for your reference 14IND510005068

  • Very Worst Model
    Pravin Srinivasan (Nov 8, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    My mobile network showing as ROAMING even in home network. Tried everything through HTC Call center/assistance, but no use. I had one BIG PROBLEM also, when Switched ON for very FIRST time, the display screen went BLANK & DARK. I given it to Service center for HARD RESET & Software Update. I took Half day leave TWICE & traveled 35kms to give & get back the mobile from service center. Now again, HTC wants me to handover the set to service center to check this ROAMING NETWORK problem. THIS IS A LESSON FOR ALL, DON'T GET CHEATED BY HTC. HTC 816G IS VERY BAD MODEL. My comment is genuine.
