An Overview of HTC Desire 510

HTC Desire 510 Review

The budget market has been assaulted by HTC with Desire 510. It is a fairly tough spot to be in considering Desire 510 is pitted against Moto G 2014.


The description of HTC Desire 510 includes:

  • Quad-core Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz processor
  • Android 4.4 KitKat operating system with Sense 6
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and an expansion slot for external memory
  • 9mm length; 69.8mm width and 9.99mm thickness
  • A display of 7 inch and 854×480 pixels display resolution
  • It weighs 158g
  • Price of £149.99


  • The design of the handset is classy and sophisticated.
  • The build material is completely plastic.
  • There is very little bezel on the top and bottom edge.
  • There are no buttons beneath the screen.
  • Weighing 158g it feels rather heavy.
  • Power button and the headphone jack sit on the top edge.
  • Volume rocker button is on the right edge.



  • The handset has a 4.7 inch display.
  • The screen has 854×480 pixels of display resolution.
  • The display does not have an IPS unit.
  • Text is sometimes fuzzy, colours are not bright enough. The display is a total letdown.



  • The quad-core Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz processor is complemented by 1GB RAM
  • The processor is the most interesting aspect of the device; it is very powerful and gives quick response.

Memory & Battery

  • Desire 510 has 8GB of built in storage.
  • The memory can be increased by the addition of a microSD card.
  • The 2100mAh battery will get you to second day of use. The battery life is great.


  • The handset supports Android 4.4 KitKat operating system along with the respectable HTC Sense 6.
  • The wireless performance is excellent.
  • The features of LTE, Near Field Communication, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are there and working.


Making low-priced quality handset is proving to be very difficult for HTC. HTC Desire 510 is a good handset it you are willing to overlook the display. The performance is good and the operating system with Sense 6 has done wonders. HTC does not know how to make right compromises in low priced handsets; unfortunately Moto G has found the formula. HTC will need to work really hard to beat Moto G.
