Looks real nice, and I guess these are for 'not America'...lol:
these are the bands that the phone comes with:
850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
850, 900, 2100 MHz
800 (band 20), 900 (band 8), 1800 (band 3), 2600 (band 7) MHz
So, looks it will work with some of our bands here in the states
T mo requires 1700/2100, 1900, or 850...
AT&T is 850/1900 and 1700/2100

Doesn't T-Mobile use 2600 for LTE or HSPDA?

After my iPhone 4s I've owned 2 galaxies. Today samsung disappointed me the same way apple did 2 years ago. These are even better looking than HTC's main flagship and will surely buy one. When a company are doing something right, you have to commend them.

So, because the design looks real good, you are going to buy a phone that is a mid range phone? Hmmmm

How many midrange phones look good these days? And yes I need a midrange phone for lab work.
Btw, don't get your knickers in a twist because I mentioned Samsung. When I'm disappointed I voice my opinion and if you can't do that, then that's just being a sheep. I still like the note 3 though lol

I feel the same way. I like Samsung, but I dont really like their designs. I dont like that their whole line is based on that design.

I too buy mid range phones for work use. I carry around daily a Note 3 and a Moto G. The Moto G is surprisingly good for how cheap it is, the quad core Snapdragon 400 doesn't run bad with a 720p screen so I wouldn't fret about the processor for normal everyday usage. However I'm starting to play more and more complex games on my phones so I'm worried about long term slowdown on the 400. But you're right the Desire 816 is a very tempting phone. The design is nice and the hardware isn't horrible. Now only if they release an unlocked one compatible with US frequency bands.
But on a side note; with how AT&T essentially released customers from their subsidized plans with the $160 10 GB Mobile Share Value Plan and from this point on me and my wife are looking at buying phones full price. I'm quite pleased with some of the phones I'm seeing this year. Zenfones, Desires and BLU Life phones oh my!

I was really surprised how solid the Moto G is for it's price.. There's a lot of choice this year in every department and that's good for everyone. I really think it's gonna be a good year especially for the midrange. The top of the line all look pretty disappointing right now, maybe the only excitement is the bigger display iPhone and that's just getting out of the stone age but nevertheless a really smart time for them to do it.
