Design and Display

Although it appears to be the highest-end of the three, the HTC Desire 825 sports a polycarbonate chassis like the Desire 530 and Desire 630.

The appeal of the urban street wear-inspired design is, however, enhanced by the ‘micro splash’ effect of colourful patches on the rear.

The handset flaunts a chic svelte profile. HTC Desire 825 packs in a huge 5.5-inch Super LCD display offering ample screen estate for gaming and watching movies. But with screen resolution at 720p, this display doesn’t hold promise of awesome viewing.

Camera and Storage

In terms of camera offerings, virtually nothing separates the HTC Desire 825 and Desire 630. This phablet comes with a combo of 13-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel selfie camera. These snappers, on paper, will deliver spectacular shots.

Buyers will get 16 GB of onboard storage for keeping photos, apps and other essentials. Storage is also expandable by an awe-inspiring 2 TB using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

You should expect HTC Desire 825 to deliver the same level of performance as the Desire 630. This is because it is kitted with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 cruising along at speed of 1.6 GHz. It also comes with 2 GB of RAM.

The operating system used is Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC’s Sense 6.0 user interface for amazing and exciting user experience.

Other Features

The HTC Desire 825 comes with a Sensor Hub feature, making it the first HTC Desire phone equipped with it. The always-on, low-power hub tracks your daily activity, gestures and elevation, amongst others.

Data gathered can be uploaded to fitness-tracking platforms such as Google Fit and Runtastic.

Like Desire 630, the HTC Desire 825 phablet is Hi-Res Audio certified and may be made available with a Hi-Res headset. It also features HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio technology. It packs a large 2,700mAh battery with fast-charging support.

Pricing and Availability

HTC Desire 825 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. HTC Desire 825 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N65,000 to N85,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
