I decided to buy HTC Desire 816 and in my country ( Egypt ) only the dual sim version is avaliable !

I heared that that version is not able to have NFC option :-( is that true ??

1 Answer 1


Indeed the dual sim version does NOT have NFC. The spec sheet explicitly states that NFC is only included in the 4G LTE model and not the dual sim one.

  • thanx .. and does it have wifi-direct or any way to transfer data quicker than bluetooth ?? Nov 18, 2014 at 23:18
  • @AbdulrahmanMostafa, no it doesn't have WiFi-direct either, I updated the answer with all available connectivity options. Bluetooth or regular WiFi using a hotspot are your best options. You can turn the HTC Desire into a hotspot itself and let other phones connect to transfer files.
