HTC Desire 820 specs


Pretty decent specs. If the price is right this could be a winner. I just think HTC need to do something with their naming of phones. Not exactly inspiring or memorable. People buying in this segment may not be Android superusers who remember names, specs and model numbers. If the naming was simplified and more memorable I think they'd have a little more success.

Sensible comment and totally agree. Good product naming is a key factor in the mid to low range market. Especially when like HTC your brand is yet to have that powerful mind share like Samsung or Apple. When Nokia was 'king' it barely mattered what they called their handsets. It was a Nokia and that's all that mattered.

For the mid range sector the specs are quite decent and I bet the price should be tagged accordingly, it's gonna rock!
