    Hi guys first of all I'd like to tell that i have been a Lumia 520 user for 2 years now. I got it the day it launched. It was my first phone. I love everything about this phone and the WP OS. But the only problem i have is the "App Gap". I don't mind apps like snapchat but there are some others that i use which are not available. I want to buy a mid-range phone and narrowed in on the HTC desire 820. I want to know if it's a good phone and how are HTC's phones in general? I trust this community and that's why wanted to ask from you people. Please provide your opinion.

    I like HTC phones in general :) The only reasons I would buy the Desire 820 are: The MP's on the camera's and the 64-bit support.

    The camera's aren't as impressive as you'd hope though :/

    And for the 64 bit.. That is only impressive if you have Android L running on the phone (I'm just a curious person so this reason is probably just for me)..

    Try an LG/ Moto or the Nexus phones

    I don't like the look of Moto's phones ;-). And nexus phones are not in my range :). I think the 64 bit processor would work better with Android L too. Any one who has used this phone?

    Or you can wait for Windows 10 as the app gap might reduce or the app which want can come...

    Lumia 940xl looks very good and its kind of close to HTC 820 or may be even HTC 826 might be coming to Windows(I guess that's too much of dreaming though)...

    I thought it had sd 800 but now i saw it has 801 so would you recommend sd 801 over sd 615 because it has less cores. I know this might be a stupid question.

    I also love the desire 826 but its not yet launched in my country. And i think you meant 640xl which i would have definitely bought had it not been for the apps. Because it has everything that a Lumia should have including glance :).

    Definitely. SD801 is much better than SD615. Other specs are also good.
    Where are you from? India?

    Yeah! You should definitely go for OnePlus One or Xiaomi Mi4.
    Why would you pay 21K for HD screen only?

    HTC phones are good but I don't think desire 820 will get much of the updates.
    Had I been at your place, I would have gone for OnePlus One.

    Most people i have talked to are saying that the one plus one is old now although CM would provide updates. I guess I'll wait for desire 826 although HTC have said that 820 would get lollipop. Thanks for your help though.

    No Problem. You can also ask some bloggers on twitter.

    Yes Desire 820 is an excellent phone. Go for it :)

    Can you confirm whether it has any heating problems? That'd be very helpful.

    I have Lumia 820, Lumia 638 and Jolla.

    I don't think you should pay 20K for SD615. For Once, see Micromax Yureka. It has almost same specs as Desire 820.
    Ofcourse this is not to say that desire 820 is bad phone. It's not but not worth the price.

    Maybe after launch of 826 it's price would fall ;). But i guess I'll wait till Motorola launches the G successor. That would be cheaper than that and better updates. I would have definitely bought the 640XL had it not been for the apps. Still gonna retain my 520 tho.
