HTC Desire 816 Camera Quality

The 13 Megapixels rear camera on the HTC Desire 816 is almost a similar rear camera, which has been in seen in HTC high-end smartphones line-up in last few years. This same rear camera is also expected to be added on the upcoming HTC One Mini 2. You don’t need to expect magical results from this rear camera, or something which you can get from HTC One M8’s 4 UltraPixels dual-lens rear camera. However, this rear camera is well enough to capture brilliant images and videos on the go. It’s better than many of its best selling competitors.

HTC Desire 816 Camera Review

The HTC Desire 816 captures brilliant and detailed images in the daylight. In some of the HTC Desire 816 camera samples, the daylight shots clicked are better detailed and produced than that from HTC One M8. However, you can’t match the overall quality of HTC Desire 816 camera results with the flagship device.

The images which were clicked in the low light or indoors are less detailed. This could be due to the slow capture speed, which is because of slow CPU and very large image sizes. This is something not very good on HTC Desire 816.

The HTC Desire 816 inherits many camera features from the flagship, HTC One M8. Following which, the Desire 816 would produce overexposed results, while clicking images outside in bright day light. You need to lower down the exposure value from the settings or you would be getting washed-out and de-saturated results. You have to do the same while recording HD videos from this smartphone.

The 5 megapixels front facing camera is good and well enough to capture your selfies. It would also help you in making video calls. Its performance is decent, and we found nothing to complain for.

HTC Smartphones & Innovative Cameras

HTC has proven that they never behind in opting the latest technologies and other updates. HTC also proved its innovation powers when it launched the HTC One with an innovative UltraPixels Camera. It was the time when the South Korean manufacturers, Samsung were ruling the high end Smartphone segment with its Galaxy Series. And then HTC launched the UltraPixel camera technology in its smartphones, which tasted huge appreciation by tech experts round the world.

Recently, another innovation was seen when HTC launched the One M8 with Dual UltraPixels rear camera. The word Dual is used for the dual-lens setup for the rear camera. The HTC One M8 is probably one of the most innovative smartphone available till date. And so, the camera quality and results is also perfection.

The HTC Desire 816 has followed the same pattern, and could be called as a great smartphone coupled with a brilliant and advanced camera. If you are amongst those who click lots of images on the go and are planning to buy a smartphone with great camera capabilities, the HTC Desire 816 could be your next worth buy.
