HTC Desire 510 review

 

HTC offers speedy 4G connectivity in a budget handset

Speedy operating system ; Low cost 4G ; Good battery life

Limited internal storage ; Screen is not amazing ; Poor camera

Ratings in depth The HTC Desire 510 is the Taiwanese company's latest addition to its Desire line up, a range of budget and mid-range smartphones that feature some of the latest mobile technology that you'd normally find in more expensive handsets....

HTC Desire 510 hands-on review

 

One of HTC's newest smartphones is the HTC Desire 510, a budget 4G-compatible phone that rivals the likes of the Motorola Moto G with a £149 price tag. We spent some time with the Desire 510 during IFA 2014, so here's our HTC Desire 510 hands-on...

It's a shame about the screen and the cameras on the HTC Desire 510, because aside from that it's a strong contender in the budget smartphone market. We're looking forward to putting the Desire 510 through some speed test to see how it compares with...

HTC Desire 510 Review: In Depth

 

We review the Desire 510, HTC's most affordable smartphone so far.Things are getting bloody in the cheap 4G phone wars. You can bag yourself a 4G-enabled device for just £79 these days (courtesy of…

Excellent battery life ; Simple camera interface ; Solid performance ; 4G support

Lacklustre screen ; No BoomSound ; Camera is 'meh'

The HTC Desire 510 is the latest phone to offer 4G for cheap, but with some slick LTE rivals like the EE Kestrel and the Motorola Moto G 4G to contend with, the Desire has a lot to prove.

HTC Desire 510 review

 

A lower rung on HTC's smartphone ladder, the Desire 510 attempts to offer a quality spec including 4G connectivity for what's expected to be a seriously low budget price. But does it succeed?

Robust build, decent processor, Android 4.4 KitKat, low price

Dull, sub-HD screen, so-so camera

Building a really great non-flagship phone is all about making compromises in the right places. Motorola got the formula spot on with the original Moto G and unfortunately HTC seem to have missed the mark both on the Desire 610 and the Desire 510. The...

HTC Desire 510 Smartphone Review

 

Up to date, yet inexpensive. The 4.7-inch HTC Smartphone Desire 510 sells for only 200 Euros (~$250) but supports the faster LTE standard despite its low price. We've subjected the Android phone, which is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm quad-core SoC, to...

Inexpensive, 4.7-inch display, Very high build quality, Supports LTE, Battery is swappable, MicroSD cards up to 128 GB, Current Android OS, Starts up quickly, Good gaming performance, Low temperatures

Resolution of only 854 x 480 pixels, Viewing angle stability not that great, Camera modules, 3.8 GB of free space

The HTC Desire 510 is a good 4.7-inch smartphone which isn't really missing any features despite the low MSRP of 200 Euros (~$250). Equipped with a quad-core SoC and Android 4.4.3, the Desire 510 offers good overall performance and a decent gaming...

HTC Desire 510 review: 4G LTE phones don't come much cheaper than this

 

Superfast 4G LTE has long been a luxury feature only found on top-end phones with lofty price tags. It's steadily become more affordable over the past couple of years and is now beginning to be found at the budget end of the market as well.

The HTC Desire 510 has 4G LTE, simple to use Android KitKat software, a capable processor and battery. For all that, its price tag is extremely reasonable.

The camera isn't suitable for anything other than quick emergency snaps and its chunky design won't turn any heads.

The HTC Desire 510 doesn't have the specs to excite committed tech fans, but it handles the basics well, has 4G LTE for superfast data speeds, and it doesn't cost the earth.

HTC Desire 510 ( white)

 

The HTC Desire 510 is just such a phone. This 4.7-inch Android KitKat device doesn't have the most impressive specs around -- an 854x480-pixel display and 1.3GHz quad-core processor certainly won't spark much excitement among the tech elite -- but at...

HTC Desire 510 (Boost Mobile)

 

Don't let the 64-bit processor fool you—the Android-based HTC Desire 510 on Boost Mobile under-delivers on most other fronts.

Affordable. Runs Android 4.4.

Subpar display. Paltry built-in storage.

Conclusions Choices are far more limited on Boost Mobile than Sprint, but that doesn't do much to help the HTC Desire 510's cause. It's disappointing by nearly every measure, even if it only commands $100 off contract. Stepping down to $79 gets you a...
