This model has several issues , I went to service center to repair with in 40days .
Major problems in this model is
1. Signal very weak
2. While Charging Mobile heats like anything
3. 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

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.

So, I bought this phone on 12th Oct. way before it was available on flipkart and got it at Rs.16000 from the local market. I was stuck at Moto G, previously but due to it was out of stock I placed my money on this. After a week of extensive usage I am writting a review for the prospective buyers.
This is the best part of the phone, the vivid display is awesome to look at. Colour reproduction is great, also the display is easily and shockingly readable in direct sunlight even at the lowest brightness setting. So you don't need to tinker with the brigthness slidder every time you walk out in the sun.
Camera is becoming the foremost aspect for buyers to choose a phone, and this phone just aces in this department. This phone has a 13MP rear and a 5MP front camera. Both the camera have excellent quality, with some precision and some good editing apps like snapseed, you can easily compete with some p&s cameras. The rear camera also offers full HD video recording. Great camera with a great display makes this phone total drool worthy
Well, moving inside the body, the phone has 1.3 Ghz Mediayek processor with Adreno 302 graphics processor, 1GB of useable RAM and 4 GB of internal memory with an expandable memory slot of 32GB. I have heard many people comparing 816G 's processor with that of 816. I don't know why people do this but, for them I would say that the 816G has a smaller processor as compared to 816, but it is also 3 - 4 thousand cheaper than its counterpart. While it still has the great front and rear cameras and dual frontal speakers and same screen size. So how would one expect HTC making money off this phone without having a smaller processor.
So leaving this aside, the processor is awesome. My previous phone was Sony Xperia Miro with 800 Mhz processor, its a great jump for me. I have played games like GTA Vice City, Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2, N.O.V.A. 3, Subway surfers, Ducati Challenge, ROC, with absolutely no lag whatsoever. (Unlimited wi-fi with 2mbps speed makes you do this)
I even got 58 fps in Nenamark 2 and a score of 20k plus in Antutu benchmark. So, for me its very good considering the price.
The phone packs up a 2600 mAh battery, which gives decent backup for a phone having a huge 5.5 inch display. While playing heavy games the battery drains quickly, but still much better than the battery backup offered by samsung phones.
The dual fontal speakers with HTC boomsound technology can easily put some portable small fm radios to shame. The sound is crystal clear even at full volume.
The HTC blinkfeed UI is a very clean and easy to use UI, with added blinkfeed technology.
The headphone provided are non in-ear type but are very good.
Lets sum up the Pros and Cons.
1. 13MP and 5 MP cameras with BSI sensors are awesome for photography.
2. 5.5 inch display with easy direct sunlight visibility.
3. Dual frontal speakers.
4. Perfect price.
5. Dual GSM sim, unlike GSM + CDMA of 816.
1. Battery could have been a slight bigger.
2. Qualcomm Snapdragon processor would have attracted more customers.

I am using 816g since past one week.
At first I saw HTC 816 and I became a big fan of it..such a brilliant mobile it is but my budget is less so I fixed for moto g (2nd gen)....almost went for the check out....at the same time my darling enters i.e., 816g at the mid-range phones....thats it I lost my heart on it without any second thought I ordered this mobile....I bought this mobile from www.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.in as at that time flipkart didn't listed it in its site...i bought it for 18990/- on the very first day of release.
K coming to the working of the mobile....
2.Camera (both front and rear)
3.Boom stereo speakers
1.Display: superb disolay those who wanna go for HD big display I will simply recommend this rather than very high-end phones because HD 5.5 inch of this beauty like a mirror
2. camera: good than most of the Dedicated Cameras..its 13Mp rear will give u cool pis and 5Mp front cam will take clear selfies for u....Skype calling is also crystal clear.
3. HTC boom sound stereo speakers gives u a very clear sound so with out head set also u can hear every minute sound
-HTC brand Headset
-Well Crafted slilm Design
Battery:- Yes,its battery obviously a small back drop of this phone.its 2600 mah battery though it gives a decent backup with such a huge display its some what less for a smart phone..
So finally I'll recomend this phone as the features and pros are pretty high compare to the price and cons....As I'am fully satisfied.
