I am very disappointed to report that my HTC 816 broke after just using it for 4 months. Unfortunately, because I bought it online, there is no warranty, so I am out the $300+ that I spent on it and the case. It happened when I went overseas. I had gotten a SIM card from the country I was in to use my phone there. Around the same time, my phone started over-heating and the download arrow at the top of the phone looked as if it were continuously downloading something, and would run for hours. I'd turn off the phone because it was over heating, but when I'd turn the phone on again, I'd continue to have the same problem. Then the screen became less and less sensitive to touch until it became completely non-responsive and I couldn't use any application or function on the phone at all. I don't know if it's a problem with the phone itself, or the SIM card from overseas that caused the problem. It would cost $100 to have the screen repaired at HTC, but I think I'll just buy a new phone. I am SO disappointed because I loved my new phone - everything worked perfectly until the overheating/screen problem, and I'd only had it for 4 months. I will not make the mistake of buying a phone without warranty again.
December 2014 review:
I have had my HTC phone for about 3 weeks, and I love it. My old phone was an iPhone, which I couldn't wait to get rid of. It took a couple days to become familiar with the android system, but it wasn't as difficult as I thought. The screen is large and has great resolution. The pictures taken on the 13 mp camera look great - I'm amazed how good the low-lighting pictures turned out - they were even better than ones taken with my real camera. The speakers are loud with good sound quality. The phone fully charges in about 3 hours, and has a long battery life - longer than the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. I usually go 1 1/2 to 2 days between charges. You can set the screen unlock to either swipe or PIN. It has 8 GB of internal memory, and unlike with an iPhone which doesn't allow extra memory, you can add up to 128 GB of storage.
I liked that it has 2 SIM slots - unfortunately, my carrier Metro PCS doesn't provide service to dual SIM phones - they only provide the SIM for one slot, not both. I'm still going to make good use of the 2nd SIM slot when I travel overseas.
There was some confusion when I first got the phone and was calling around for carriers who could support the dual SIM on my phone. Some carriers I contacted told me one SIM slot was for GSM, the other was for CDMA. As I found out in the end, both slots are for GSM SIM cards. I took the phone to Sprint, Metro PCS, T--Mobile and Verizon, and they all told me that at this time they will not connect my unlocked phone to their system, even though they have the ability to do so. They are not required to connect unlocked phones to their network, and do not want to, since they want people to buy their locked phones so they can lock people into 2 year contracts and get people to pay more over the 2 year term. Metro PCS and Consumer Cellular were the only ones I found who would connect the unlocked phone to their service.
As was noted in other reviews, it appears this phone was intended to be sold in the Chinese market - the newsfeed and Tips & Help were in Chinese, even though all of the Language settings were in English U.S. I took off the newsfeed because I don't use it, but I can't seem to change Tips & Help to English. I've tried to have Chinese speakers look on the Tips & Help to see if there's a language setting that's different than the phone settings, but there isn't one.
Other than that, I am very pleased with my phone, and would highly recommend it.
