HTC's Desire 616 looks good, but doesn't have the performance to match

 

This budget-friendly dual-SIM smartphone has the looks but is sluggish to use, marring the overall experience.

The Desire 616 blends the familiar good-looking HTC design aesthetic with dual-SIM capabilities in a 5-inch display.

The phone's performance is often sluggish and is a tad more expensive than the competition.

The Desire 616 isn't one of the better HTC products we've seen this year, and you may want to give this a miss. There are cheaper and better alternatives such as the Asus ZenFone 5 or the Redmi Note.

HTC Desire 616 dual sim: Managing expectations

 

The HTC Desire 616 dual sim seems specifically designed for Asian markets - it's affordable but with a large screen, an impressive sounding chipset and that all important dual-SIM connectivity. However, "budget-conscious" is not usually in HTC's...

Dual SIM phone ; 5" 720p TFT LCD, 294 pixels per inch, ambient light sensor ; Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.5 ; MediaTek MT6592 chipset with octa-core 1.4GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Mali-450MP4 GPU and 1GB of RAM ; 8MP camera, single LED...

Battery is on the small side ; Non-IPS screen with no scratch protection ; No BoomSound speakers and poor audio quality ; Plastic build and finish ; Old software with many Sense apps replaced by stock Android

The HTC Desire 616 dual sim failed to create the same excitement as other HTC phones have in the past. It feels like too many things were compromised - small things here and there adding to a few bigger ones and the end result is something that barely...

HTC Desire 616 review

 

HTC's entry-level Desire 616, in theory, should have been a great budget phone for the masses.

The Desire 616 blends the familiar good-looking HTC design aesthetic with dual-SIM capabilities in a 5-inch display.

The phone's performance is often sluggish and is a tad more expensive than the competition.

The Desire 616 isn't one of the better HTC products we've seen this year, and you may want to give this a miss. There are cheaper and better alternatives such as the Asus ZenFone 5 or the Redmi Note.

HTC Desire 616 Review: Waste of Beauty is a Flaw Forever

 

HTC Desire 616 comes out to be an average Joe in performance, it bases its survival on big screen and borrowed looks which makes the design look redundant. It is priced at Rs 15,959.

• Looks high-end ; • Big bright screen ; • BlinkFeed loaded

• Mediocre built quality ; • Muffled speakers ; • Low internal storage

While HTC Desire 616 comes out to be an average Joe in performance, it bases its survival on big screen and borrowed looks; the latter rather makes the design look redundant. The build quality too doesn't match with HTC's track record of producing...

HTC Desire 616 Dual SIM Review

 

The Desire 616 is a good looking handset, and with an octa-core processor it sounds impressive as well. But would you really consider something that provides a similar performance experience which is available on other devices in the same price range?...

Smooth and stable UI performance ; Octa-core processor at an affordable price ; Camera quality is quite good in its class

Glossy back panel ; Low internal memory ; Battery backup could have been better
