HTC video reveals the making of the HTC Desire 820; "fun with plastics"

HTC video reveals the making of the HTC Desire 820;
Can you have fun with plastics? Let's talk specifically about polycarbonate, which is the material used on the HTC Desire 820. The manufacturer posted a video today, and while only 33 seconds in length, it was produced to show the smooth good looking lines of the Desire 820. This is quite a contrast to the fully metallic HTC One (M8)

Earlier today, we told you about the HTC Desire 820s, which was launched with a 64-bit MediaTek processor under the hood. That replaces the Snapdragon 615 employed on the Desire 820 (sans "s"). The MediaTek MT6752 is powering the newer variant, and the quad-core processor has a 1.7GHz clockspeed.

The rest of the specs for the Desire 820 series includes a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 267ppi. The handset comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. If more memory is needed, you can use the 128GB capacity microSD slot. A 13MP rear-facing camera adorns the back of the unit, and selfie-loving users will enjoy the 8MP camera on the front of the phone. The 2600mAh battery inside the device should keep the lights on for a full day.

Those looking for an more affordable large-screened Android handset will probably have the HTC Desire 820 in their sight. You can check out HTC's latest video, starring the model, by clicking on the video due south of this sentence.

I prefer the curved back the HTC One M8 has.

"the making of" ... I don't think this phrase means what you think it means.
