      I had the HTC Desire HD back in the days.
      It was the first smartphone with an 1.0 Ghz single processor.
      The design was also superb.
      It was the best time using it back then.
      Now I use the S3 for almost 2 years and it’s killing me.
      Really liked this Desire 816 in you’re review.
      Would be really be proud to get it.
      But for all others, good luck!
