2014 has seen a change in HTC’s strategy. Instead of only focusing on the high-end segment with its flagship One series and Butterfly smartphones, the Taiwanese company has launched a host of devices in the $150-$300 price segment under its Desire range. Co-founder and Chairwoman Cher Wang was quoted as saying, “The problem with us last year (2013) was we only concentrated on our flagship. We missed a huge chunk of the mid-tier market.” This year we have seen the company launch the likes of the Desire 210, Desire 310, Desire 516, Desire 816, and the Desire 616, which launched last week.

HTC Desire 616 hardware

Design – The Desire series of smartphones all follow similar design language and the Desire 616 is no different. It boasts dimensions of 142×71.9×9.15mm and weighs 150 grams.

Display – The Desire 616 flaunts a 5-inch HD capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. This translates into a pixel density of 294ppi.

Processor – The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The processor is paired with 1GB of RAM and Mali-450MP4 GPU.

Storage – The one disappointing aspect about the device is the availability of only 4GB of internal storage, of which only 2GB is available for users. It can however be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Battery – There is a 2,000mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough for 14 hours of talktime on 3G and up to 700 hours on standby mode.

Cameras – The primary camera is an 8-megapixel snapper with auto focus, LED flash and the ability to shoot videos at 1080p. For selfie lovers, there is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, which has the ability to shoot videos at 720p.

HTC Desire 616 software

On the software front, the Desire 616 runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The operating system is wrapped under HTC’s Sense 5.5 UI.

HTC Desire 616 comparison

The Desire 616 will be up against other octa-core smartphones like the Micromax Canvas Knight A350, Karbonn Titanium Octane and the Gionee Elife E7 mini. The Canvas Knight A350 is the most expensive of the bunch, but for the extra buck you get a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a better set of cameras — 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel. The Titanium Octane is similarly specced, but it has the advantage of running on Android 4.4 KitKat.
