This phone is a piece of shit. Make sure there is no moisture on your hands or your phone will go bizerk. Even if it's moisture in the AIR! Your phone will go crazy and jump from screen to screen. ALWAYS sends me to Google play randomly. Camera sucks. Audio Jack is terrible. Can't use earphones. Just a terrible phone all around. I pray you read this before wasting your money.
Key pad doesn't put letters u type but makes up and highlights some word you didn't touch one by one on letters. Very annoying. Charger after 5 months began to reject its own charger saying not HTC charger. When called company said would send out another charger knowing they were back order for over 3 weeks still waiting. Called after 3 weeks & asked to send another battery because using someone elses charger & told that would be longer all back ordered & company hasn't yet made then to fill back order. I am disabled & told them over phone needed for Dr appointment etc. They didn't care. Suggested they contact their suppliers & they didn't care. Told can't use anyone else charger but they asked me to which I said I thought that would void warranty. Would never buy their phones again. Phone $200USA I had cheaper phones with better abilities. Won't discuss other problems here.
battery is ok,very good,but camera is not auto focus.so pic is not good.and no flash.

sanooj abraham italy, 07 Jul 2015I bought this phone nov 23rd two months no problem then if am using over apps then keypad lett... moreMate, it is extremely hard to understand what you are saying but are you implying this is not a good phone? I was thinking of getting one of these for my son but not if it is not a good phone. In Australia, it sells for AUD179 so it is not a very cheap phone.
I bought this phone nov 23rd two months no problem then if am using over apps then keypad letters going some where some functions automatically working really getting angry...and another thing is good speed internet and bad camera service authorities good now am planning to throw this phone waste phone ....always for youngsters htc desire 510 again i will not buy htc if u hav contact me +393405571905
[deleted post]Honestly the HTC desaire 510 was bit expensive at all. If you bought it for more than the moto e, then you bought it for waaay too much. I got mine for 40 dollars without a service plan. The moto e is terrible anyways dont buy it.
One day I was w. A group of friends and tried to take a selfie and it shut down
alex, 26 Jun 2015Set up the calibration and make sure your hands aren't sweaty Mine does this non-stop and has even dialed 911 a few times while n my pocket...absolute junk!!!
need to buy this fon,need an advice on calling boost mobile to activate it. can it use any sim card?
No led flash, no autofocus... Camera only looks good in well lit area honestly. I love everything else about the phone though.
I love my HTC Desire 510. The phone definately needs a protective cover. Make sure Google Now is off or phone will be voice texting randomly. That I found extremely annoying but sorted now after I switched this function off. I think the camera is very good too. Keep screen clean always. Phone fell and cracked rendering it useless waited for original screen for a month but worth it and wasn't too expensive. You must free up memory and empty app build up regularly. If people want an iPhone get one. These do what they say they do but research your model and know how to use it before finding fault people. There are very good tips and help options available if problems arise. A lot of problems here are network or sim problems. Know your stuff. Best phone I had in a while. Well done HTC. Very user-friendly 😊
i've been using my htc desire 510 for just 4 months..yesterday it fell down and my screen was destroyed..i can't even do anything..i touch the screen but nothing..now i'm thinking of buying a new mobile phone because it'll cost me a lot to get the screen fixed..i don't have much experience with this phone..but i suggest you not buy it..first of all and most important it doesn't have led flash..secondly it's made of cheap materials and you'll understand this if it falls down..in my point of view it isn't somethin' exciting..it crashes many times(ram 1GB) ..and battery's duration is low .
For the bad specs u get this phone is waaay to expensive, no led flash, no autofocus!! Can u believe that? And such a low resolution display at 208ppi, even my cheap budget huawei ascend y330 has a much better display at 233ppi, which is probably the sharpest display in its class. This phone is more expensive than the much better sony xperia m2, moto e 2nd gen, Samsung Galaxy core prime and huawei ascend g620s. If ur looking for a budget smartphone with a great display then recommend the huawei ascend g620s which has a 720p HD display at 294ppi and it is cheap!!
Vinayak, 17 Jun 2015I'm purchased HTC desire 500 before 18 months.Now camera can't work. What I can do ?If you have suffered through owning this phone for a mind bending 18 months, you deserve an upgrade bro. Take your SIM out and set fire to that flimsy turd of a phone.
whenever i type something it messes up and types itself, random letters and it has bugs, can't scroll properly also. going up and down when scrolling for no reason. 1 out of 10.
