  1. HTC wants to dig its own grave in India. Even if android is fully optimised in this phone the battery capacity simply wont be enough. This is 2016 and most of the phones are coming with 3000 mAh battery capacity.
    Even the pricing is ridiculous.
    RIP HTC.

  2. Main dIFF between SD 615 and is in modem..Snapdragon 617, which appears to be similar to the Snapdragon 615 with an updated X8 modem for UE cat 7 LTE, with support for carrier aggregation of up to 2 20 MHz carriers. The DSP is in the same family as the Snapdragon 615. 617 is really just 615..rebranded.

    1. And sd617 supports quick charge 2.0 instad of 1.0 which is capable of charging a 3300 mah battry 60% in 30 minuts and by looking at this 2100 mah battry it seems like it will be charged in around 45 minuts . Lol !

  3. Good looking phone from a reputed brand
    Cons :
    1)2150 mah battery
    2)single sim
    3)5 inch screen
    4)Slightly overpriced
    5)heating issue (based on SD 615 not sure about SD 617 )

    1. Well in 617 all the eight cores can function simultaneously, which is not possible in 615.
