TechSpot: HTC Desire 816 Review

Since the launch of the first successful large-screened smartphone back in 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Note, there has been a growing demand for devices with larger-than-normal displays. While originally these were mostly in the upper echelon when it comes to smartphone pricing, we're now seeing more oversized handsets hit the market with mid-range specs and price tags.

This is exactly where HTC’s new product fits in. The Desire 816’s main feature is the large 5.5-inch HD display, and it also packs in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, a 13-megapixel camera, and design cues from HTC’s recent high-end products. All of this is available for just $325, placing it squarely in the affordable territory of the Nokia Lumia 1320 and Asus Zenfone 6.
