HTC Desire 816: A Fabulous Phablet

The HTC Desire 816 offers a solid phablet experience at a reasonable price. It's great if you love taking photos as the Desire 816 comes with a 13MP camera. Don't forget selfies with the front facing 5MP camera. One downside is that the power button is on the top of the phone, which can make for an awkward reach while holding with one hand. It may not have a removable battery, but it does have optional expandable memory.

The Desire 816 comes packed with a Snapdragon 400 1.6GHz quad-core CPU- pretty impressive for a so called "budget phone". The phone is kept alive with it's 2,600mAh battery, which isn't very impressive considering the size of the phone. But you should still be able to go most of the day, unless you're a social media junkie. A very well-rounded device sure to satisfy anyone looking for a large phone that won't leave a large hole in their bank account.
