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.
