Some are calling it HTC’s iPhone 5C. No knock on the company’s mid-tier device, but that’s exactly what it is, only with a little more flare. The Desire 816’s vibrant plastic shell retains the build quality and premium detailing showcased on HTC’s recent models, while tackling a solid spec sheet consisting of 5.5-inch (1280x720) panel, 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, and dual-SIM support. HTC also made the right call of ditching its unpleasant Ultrapixel camera in exchange for a 13MP rear shooter and 5MP front-facing snapper with HD video recording for high-quality selfies.
