I think if this phone does not have basics like LED flash and it also has lower resolution screen, but what HTC has cleverly done is that they have made up this by giving a first in the segment 64 processor. And that is a good thing considering its price and I dont think U can expect any more considering its price tag.
Just got this and after a week of using am disappointed with it, its lags a lot and the screen is not as responsive. The lock button for me is situated to far away so is awkward.
I was a previous Lumia user and thought I would try something different but having tried this its a no from me WP OS is some much better for me more fluid.
I don't like the experience at all so moving away from this handset.
Good phone for the price. Flash would be nice and the camera could be better. Screen brightness is also pretty bad when tilted. My main problem is sending texts. It seems out of the 100 or so texts I've sent, I've had to power off my phone about 3 times because the messages won't go through. I thought it was something with Telus but it sends fine when I turn the phone back on. I'm not sure if anyone else has this issue but it's pretty irritating to have to power my phone down every hour
Its a nice phone but the fact that it doesn't have a flash is disappointing and no hotspot. I haven't had it 24 hours yet. Very disappointed.
This phone in terms of quality for price is second to none. The quality of pixilation and the camera is superb and in my opinion trumps the iphone everytime.
Charges quickly and lasts the whole day with ease. 10/10.
slim, 23 Oct 2014Do not have LED flash lights....I big no no Wish I'd seen this before I bought it because I totally agree and am still in utter disbelief that in today's world anyone would manufacture a smart phone that's not smart enough to tell you that you missed a text message.
The apps put on it takes up too much space so it barely lets you download anything
Fangor, 31 Aug 2014In my opinion HTC Desire 510 is a great mobile. I have HTC Desire C now, and I am happy with h... moreCheck out Nokia Lumia 1020 (and 818) and admit you were wrong :)
And back to the business. The Desire 510 seems... well, desirable. The only thing keeping me from getting it is the fear of ending up with an abondened device. Supportwise, that is.
comparing many HTC models and other brands is realy have very noticed pattern like ( Performance Vs. price, UI Vs Value, OS Vs Price again, Customer experiance Vs. work / life style we can still see that HTC is the most concentrated Brand on these criteria, i still see that the best value that comes along with best performance, UI, OS version, Camera quality (8 is very good) is the HTC Desire 500 ( back in 2013) Quad-core 1.2, 8M camera, with HTC sence 5 and powered by Beats Audio is the best in terms of value ( i have one for 220 USD), now the Desire 510 is a good improvemnt for that but not in the camera and Audio sides ... please HTC we need Desire 520 ( which is a Desire 510 in everything + HTC Desire 500 camera and Audio specs for the same price :-))
now i going to buy htc816, it is a good phone my friends told me so i get the phone and tell about feedback...
Well I love the phone but when it comes to downloading apps its too slow .also the zero is to close to the call button
Love the phone bummer that there's no flash but no big deal. It's just slow with app downloads
It has no flash! That is a big no no. I can't capture pictures at night witch suckss!
Phone is not bad...but lacks in the screen resolution at 480 and you can tell with a nearly 5 in screen. It runs snappy though with quad core processor 1.2 Gh. Brightness is an issue if your in sun or only part sun, have mine turned all the way up. Other than that it's a good phone for the price.
Why do so many people talk about looks when the phone is put in a protective case anyway, lol?
To the naysayers who complain about the poor camera, buy the more expensive m8 if you want to use it for a more photographic purpose. This can be considered a more 'budgeted' option(though it performs remarkably well in most aspects), so the camera won't be great. Though Imho, all phone cameras are craps anyways, then again, we all have our standards.
As for flash, I guess it is convenient to be able to capture moments in all types of lighting. Again, Buy the m8 if you want flash. If you are one of the people complaining about poor camera abilities alongside the absence of flash, note that direct flash is crap as it makes faces look oily and color look super flat, you also get unnecessary highlights in your photos.
In last 6 month, i changed 5 mobile phone and this one is number 6. I used Jolla, Sony xperia Z, Z1, Z1 compact, Nexus 5. I was very much pleased with xperia devices because of waterproofness and battery as i m working in a place where i have to use water all the time. After that i tried to xperience stock android of Nexus 5 which is one the worst mobile phone in this year. Just 1 week i used to then returned it to the seller. Yesterday i bought 510 and i have to say, i am very much pleased of it's performance. It cost 170 euro but it's performance is like 350 euro's mobile phone. Though it has a poor camera but i have a DSLR, so that is not a problem. Also there is no equaliser in music menu but i m using now jetaudion plus. Net speed is tooooo much fast with 3g mobile network. No lag, screen brightness is soooo far good. overall i m satisfied with this mobile. btw, interface is sooo beautiful. whoever just a phone with good battery,fast internet connection and a beautiful design, i recommend to go with this phone's white version. Thanks HTC, i m back.
Sony ericsson live with walkman-HTC sensation XL-Samsung galaxy s4-Lumia 625-Jolla-Sony xperia Z+z1+z1 compact-Nexus 5 and lastly HTC desire 510
