Quick Specs:


Nobody takes more pride in their mid range phones than HTC and some other mid-range phones don't really look like mid-range so today we are taking a look at their latest and probably the most power mid range phone ever made this is HTC Desire 820s


HTC Desire 820s is a 5.5inch  LCD display. It is sleek in design. The body is built of plastic but like all other mobiles, it doesn't look cheaper as we know etc is the best in design and it is proved again. It has sleek dual tone design with white and the respective panel color. The front facing speakers are at the top and bottom of the display which provides clear sound. The etc branding comes on the backside and the front side of the lower panel.


The volume rockers and the power button are located on the right side of the mobile which comes very handy.

The 3.5mm headphone jack at the top side. The power slot comes at the bottom. The three capacitive navigation keys are on the display. Its dimensions are 157.7 x 78.7 x 7.7 mm and weigh around 155grams which are very light and easy to hold.

If the design of the 820s looks familiar to that is because its spiritual successor to the 816 that came out earlier but it's been improved pretty much. The design looks bit slippery but overall it is okay. It is  a thin phone with pretty hefty bezels. The front facing speakers are very loud and very clear and deliver a very clean and rich sound. The display is very good with accurate colors with a nice amount of brightness, solid viewing angles and outdoor visibility may not be the highest but it is still very good. Especially gaming and watching videos is very good. Asphalt 8 runs pretty awesomely with clear graphic details. High-end games are playing ok but not too fast.

There is not much to complain about with display inside the desire. It is powered by a snapdragon 615 powered by a 64-bit processor. Your phone is now running a 32-bit software it is always ready to take a software update like a lollipop. The performance is very snappy and responsive even though this is technically a mid-range phone the experience feels very high end. You can take a photo with the rear camera and front camera and it stitches them together.

Overall it has many camera features which are nice. Antutu benchmark score is 26850 which is pretty good may be the highest in mid range phones and Vellamo score is 2011 Nena mark score is 59.9fps.


HTC Desire 820s is the best mid range phone available in the market, its performance is really very impressive with all the benchmark scores seen. The only problem comes with the lower battery backup which gets drained faster than remaining android devices. You can buy this at a price of Rs24,000/-
