The mission of the HTC Desire series is to bring well designed, high quality mobile products to the mid-range market. Desire 816 was conceived as a celebration of the scalability of the HTC design language, meeting a moderate price point while still maintaining a feature-rich, high spec device. Desire is unmistakably HTC with its strong forehead and chin gestures, as well as a friendly ergonomic form reminiscent of HTC One 8M. 816’s construction is streamlined, and the number of housing components is optimized. Attention is focused on premium interface details such as anodized diamond cut buttons. Efficient construction allows the device to feature best components for the price point, including a 5.5” 720p display, 13 mp main camera, and HTC’s signature Boomsound speakers.
