Why is it so successful?

If you want to know why HTC’s mid-range device is so successful, we can only tell you that its specs are modest, but decent enough for a price of no more that CNY 1,900 ($310), so this is probably the main reason behind people’s unexpected reaction.

This HTC Desire 816 is an Android-based smartphone that comes with a 5.5-inch display with a 1280×720 resolution, also housing a 1.6 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. Moreover, it lets its users enjoy the benefits of an 13.0 MP rear-facing camera and 5 MP front-facing camera as well, not to mention that it runs on Android Jelly Bean OS version.
