Hardware & Software

HTC Desire 820 offers dual SIM support and with support for 4G LTE, browsing, streaming, and downloading will be pretty fast. Looking at the design, the HTC Desire 820 indeed boasts of HTC’s trademark gorgeous design, with its smooth curves and lines, carrying the legacy of smart looking phones which customers really expect from HTC. This particular model is also obviously thinner and really lighter compared to the phones manufactured prior to it.
