The Desire 820’s camera is where it stands out. No, I’m not talking about the 13MP primary camera at the back which comes with LED flash.

Like most other HTC flagships and midranger (Desire lineup), the Desire 820 is a sleek looking device that gets rounded corners, edges and gets a colored accent lining that makes it stand out even more. The body is plastic, unlike most high-end devices from the Taiwanese brand, but this phone is promoted as a midranger anyway.
The Desire 820 is a lovely device that runs the last version of KitKat, Android 4.4.4. It packs a huge 5.5-inch display but with a slightly lower resolution of just HD (1280 x 720). Nevertheless, viewing angles and color reproduction are still high caliber compared to other unknown brands. The device also runs on a 64-bit supported Snapdragon 615 chipset which runs on 8 cores. There is plenty of RAM (2GB) to spare which can handle those performance intensive tasks.
The Desire 820’s camera is where it stands out. No, I’m not talking about the 13MP primary camera at the back which comes with LED flash. The more interesting feature is the 8MP front camera that can shoot and record 1080p videos. There are only a handful of devices whose front snappers have 5MP resolution or more, and the Desire 820 is among the best in the class.
The HTC Desire 820 is more than just a selfie smartphone, its RAM and processor speed make it a reliable device that can withstand even the toughest day-to-day activities.
