HTC played to its strengths with the two devices unveiled at the MWC the Desire 816 phablet and Desire 610 smartphone. Both look hot and feature LTE connectivity and BoomSound speakers.
The HTC Desire 816 is a 5.5″ phablet, “one of the best value smartphones ever introduced by HTC” says the company. LTE is welcome and the 13MP camera is nice to have. A 5MP front-facing camera with a BSI sensor will probably produce some of the better selfies this side of the Oppo N1.
The HTC Desire 610 is a smaller device, with a 4.7″ qHD screen. The Desire 610 has an 8MP camera and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset. It has a fairly large battery too, at 2,400mAh, which surprisingly has just a little less capacity than that of the phablet.
