HTC Desire 820 Review: The First 64 Bit Android Phone

HTC Desire 820 Review: The First 64 Bit Android Phone

By Rich W Woods Ok, it wasn’t exactly the first 64 bit Android phone, but the HTC Desire 510 is lower end and didn’t quite get the publicity. The more I used the HTC Desire 820, the more impressed I became with it I became. The display is just 720p, which is a pretty low resolution on a 5.5″ LCD. It comes out to 267 ppi. Unfortunately, it runs Android 4.4 KitKat, which doesn’t support…

By Rich W Woods I’m almost done putting the HTC Desire 820 through the rounds for the camera comparisons. You may have noticed that I’ve been focusing more on the HTC Desire 820 instead of the Microsoft Lumia 535 and the Amazon Fire Phone. That’s because I have to give this one back. HTC and Sony both make great smart phone cameras; however, they do it in different ways. HTC saturates the image, using their…

By Rich W Woods I have been spending a week now with the HTC Desire 820 and I am pretty impressed with it. I actually like it better than the HTC Desire Eye. It has a lower resolution display powered by a better GPU. Also, it uses an 8 MP front camera, allowing to make it normal size instead of the monster they used on the HTC Desire Eye. The time has come to compare…

HTC One M8 vs HTC Desire 820 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods The HTC Desire 820 is the first 64 bit Android phone. There is just one problem: the OS that it runs on only supports 32 bit. It has still not received Lollipop. Of course, since I have received the device, I can’t find a way to check for updates. In fact, when I turn the device off, if I put it on the charger, it gives me a disclaimer about how…
