82% HTC Desire 830 Review – 3GB Device
Source: Phone World English
HTC Desire 830 is fully equipped with the all best possible features because it is LTE enabled smartphone with the fast octa-core processor. Moreover it can record 1080p videos from front camera. Overall the device can fulfill user need in every aspect either it is camera section, game section or any other. Only one thing which it lacks is bigger battery otherwise it has performed really well in every section.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
