HTC Desire 828:

HTC Desire 828 is a year old phone launched back in Nov of 2015. The best part about this phone is that it has HTC Boom sound which will provide superior audio quality from loudspeakers and headphones. The major downside would be the Lollipop version of android it’s running. The phone has a pretty good 5.5inch Full HD panel, and a set of well equipped 13MP and 4MP Camera. The rear camera features OIS for good video recording and the front camera features Ultrapixel for a better selfie.

HTC 10 evo:

HTC 10 evo is the 2nd iteration of the HTC 10 launched earlier on 2016. It is also one of the phones this year to omit the headphone jack and like the iPhone 7 you need to use a USB C headphone jack. As a later iteration of the HTC 10, it packs the old Snapdragon 810 chipset, along with the older version of Quick Charging and inferior Camera. But what Evo excels at compared to HTC 10 is the battery size, latest Gorilla Glass protection and the Android version. HTC has trimmed down its Sense UI and now it’s close to stock android which has helped to improve the performance of the phone.
