HTC desire 820 review was conducted after we saw it IFA 2014, The plastic body doesnot incites the feel of expensive and high end smartphone but it specs says its price as HTC desire 820 is a smartphone whose specs and features say is price. Apart from the body the Desire 820 seemed to be a very reasonable smartphone that has snapdragon 615 in it, No doubt its one of the high end smartphone of HTC series with mid-range price, Also to note is that its screen is of 720 pixels thats fine with a octa-core processor, Although the camera is of 13 pixels but most probably its better than the recent HTC smartphones with ultra-pixels, its good to see that HTC has moved back to Mega-pixels as ultra pixels were not showing the result that HTC claimed, HTC has experimented a lot with the cameras as recently they have released duo camera as well on their phablet.
