A phone that was vital in bringing HTC back into the limelight last year was the HTC Desire 816 (Review | Pictures). This mid-range phone had a large screen, ran the latest version of Android, packed HTC's trademark BoomSound speakers, and boasted of a camera that could capture some stunning photographs in the right lighting conditions.

HTC Desire 820 Summary

HTC Desire 820 is an upgrade to the popular Desire 816. It boasts of an 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, better front camera and an improved design. The camera is still a great performer and we managed to capture some really stunning photographs in our tests. However, the battery life is not too great. The addition of Desire 820 to the mid-range segment makes it more difficult to choose the right smartphone in this price range.

  • Great phone for under 25k! Big screen and fast!
    Joseph CJ (Jan 19, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    This is great phone at this price point. Very fast at tasks, very light and sleek. Good screen resolution, excellent for those who like big screens. Camera and Battery performance is reasonably good. Battery lasts for 14 to 16 hours with moderate to high usage on 3G. Camera is not the best, but gets the job done. Screen resolution looks excellent by itself, only looks lower spec when directly looking at this and flagships like the One M8, iPhones and S5's of the world. Memory is expandable to 128GB, so you'll never run out of space.

  • Amazing phone with a non satisfactor camera
    Adarsh Sodani (Nov 18, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Trust me this phone is amazing but but but the camera is really not upto the mark. The 13 Mp Camera also gives a grainy image. I got the problem checked at the service station too but they said that the problem is in its manufacturing. So I would rate it 3 out of five just due to camera coz it really has to be good when u pay 22000 bucks.

  • Screen is too delicate.
    Kitty Emerson (May 27, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    My LCD cracked after a week of having my phone. I didn't drop it or bump it, I tapped the screen and it shattered under the protective layer.
