Have a look at these images and notice the difference. (Hints: Check top, bottom, back and the side; right side is a surprise.)
Okay, stop starting them, you cant see inside the body no matter how long you keep looking!
Yes, there is no difference between these two in terms of looks, obviously except the color difference. There are two variants for both these mobile phones; one is navy blue and the other is white. The real difference is hardware. Let’s keep the difference high specific to the specifications** only. Be informed, the specifications are as mentioned on the HTC mobiles India website.

After looking at the above specifications, you can easily say that hTC 816 is for people eyeing performance while hTC 816G is for those who are ready to compromise on hardware and some niche software tweaks over looks.
Note: Standby time specification (“specification”) is an industry standard that is only intended to allow comparison of different mobile devices under the same circumstances. Power consumption in a standby state is strongly dependent on factors including but not limited to network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and mobile traffic. Comparisons of different mobile devices using such a specification can therefore only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile device in real life circumstances for which the mobile device is intended, the standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on the factors mentioned above.
** Specifications are subject to change without prior notice (This is what they said on website, don’t get miffed.)
So before you buy the phone, check out its official specification on the company’s website. If information is not available, call their customer service number or mail them.
