You’ll be surprised to find out that over a million people already registered their interest to buy the devices, which proved to be an unexpected situation for the company as well.

A next stock of Desire handsets
Given the circumstances, many people had issues when trying to order their own Desire 816 or when trying to complete the transaction, but now we all know that this has happened due to this limited stock. The demand seems to have surprised both HTC and the online retailer handling these sales, but don’t you imagine that they aren’t doing anything to solve the problem as fast as possible.

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.
