    Which one of the two is better for a smooth and enjoyable experience- Htc desire 816 or Nexus 5?

    Aside from having a better camera set, the Desire 816 is beaten in every department, specs wise.

    A prefer nexus 5
    Because stock android is the smoothest android experience ever and updates rollout first to nexus devices
    The only down side of the nexus 5 in my opinion is the battery life isn't that great when comparing it with the desire 816

    With moderate to heavy use my Nexus 5 just about lasts from morning to night, although sometimes it needs an extra charge late afternoon.

    Snap. 400 vs 800. More RAM, better screen (PPI). All around better phone. I'll give you the battery and the camera, but wile the HTC has one or two things over the Nexus, the Nexus has several over the HTC.
    The HTC is a mid range phone wile the Nexus is a flagship class. All be it bottom of the pile but a flagship non the less.
