Reviews for the HTC Desire 820s

74% Desirable but not desirable enough
Source: Digital Trends English
The HTC Desire 820s is not a performance beast nor the lazy non-performer, it settles itself for somewhere in between. It is a good combination of features which make it a considerable choice over a few but still lacks the overalls to be unequivocally recommended without an ‘if’ clause.

80% HTC Desire 820s Review: New Brains in the Same Body
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The HTC Desire 820s may not necessarily be the best smartphone in this price bracket, but it's still an impressive device that looks good, feels nice and performs great. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a mid-range smartphone, especially those who don't want to deal with the headaches of flash sales and invite-only purchase systems. It's a solid device that you can buy without any worries right now, and one that will serve you well.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
