HTC’s done well to make a name for itself in the smartphone market over the past few years. Thanks to its One series, people are starting to take the company seriously. It leads the way in terms of build materials and quality and isn’t afraid to try new things. But in my mind, what it’s doing in the budget-friendly areas of the market is far more interesting.
Last year I checked out the Desire 816 and came away impressed. This year, I have the Desire 820, and again I find myself pretty pleased with the device. Sure, it's a little rough around the edges, but for the initial outlay (under $400 or £300), it’s a well-priced phablet that picks up where the 816 left off.
