The Desire 816 features a 5.5-inch 720p display, while the Galaxy Grand 2 features a 5.25-inch display with the same resolution. With a slightly smaller display, the latter fares better when the pixel densities are compared (280ppi to 267ppi). That said, the difference is not something you will notice when using the devices every day. Also Read - Top 5G smartphones under Rs 20,000 in August 2021: Samsung A22 5G, Redmi Note 10T, etc

POWER

Both the devices are powered by a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, paired with the same 1.5GB RAM. The only thing differentiating the two devices is the processor clock speed — 1.6GHz on the Desire 816 and 1.2GHz on the Galaxy Grand 2.

CAMERAS

HTC’s Desire 816 trumps the Galaxy Grand 2 in this department. Its 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera are better than the Galaxy Grand 2’s 8-megapixel and 1.9-megapixel cameras.

BATTERY AND STORAGE

The two smartphones are equally matched here, with both of them featuring 8GB internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card slot, and a 2,600mAh battery. This round then is a tie.

ANDROID OS

Again the devices are evenly matched here as they run on Android Jelly Bean, with their respective UI on top. If we were to choose between the UI, then HTC’s Sense UI is a much better choice than Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.

Both the devices then are equally matched on most counts and it is the pricing that proves to be a differentiating factor. Priced at Rs 23,990, the Desire 816 is Rs 3,000 more than the Galaxy Grand 2 (Rs 20,794). It may sound a lot, but for the extra buck you get a processor with a higher clock speed, better set of cameras and HTC’s Sense UI.
