The latest member of the this family comes in two variants – an HTC Desire 820 powered with the Snapdragon 615 processor Octa-core CPU with a 64 bit processing capability; and a HTC Desire 820q, powered by the potent 64-bit quad -core Snapdragon 410 processor.

We did like the HTC Desire 816, and to be frank it was the awesome device with same HTC one experience at the lower cost. Even if the build was of plastic it was sturdy and beautiful which use to stand out of the crowd. At specification it looks low also screen resolution it looks low but when we reviewed the device it has the best 720p display which extremely looks like 1080p display, no other android phone has ever did this.
