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
I just bought the HTC Desire 510 and can't see why the complaints. It is a great phone for the money. The big difference between this phone and the IPhone and galaxy is that they invest heavily on sleek look and feel, which I don't care for. I like the rogued look the most. A quad processor with 64bits capability. This is the format of the future.
Phone looks to be lpwer spec than a htc one mini so you could call it a mini one mini. The quad core is only 1.2ghz so its not very good quad core, so dont be fooled. The performance u'll get would be something akin to a dual core 1.5ghz phone. Quite shocked to see it has no camera all pjone from 2012 tjat are android have been packing flash so for htc to go with this omission is strange. Pictures can look grainy in low light with no flash
I am using Warid 4G sim which band 3 and LTE compatible with frequency of 1800. Can I buy this phone for testing?
I got this phone to do 64-bit ARM development when Android L is available, so I don't intend to use it as my daily phone. As a budget phone, it doesn't compare well to the Moto G. The display is the lower quality TFT that inverts and washes out when you view it off-angle. The cameras (front and rear) are tolerable in good light and awful in low light. It's heavy and thick. The performance is reasonable, but seems to hiccup every so often. The only good things I have to say about it is that it has a removable battery and microSD slot.

Its a good thing this phone doesn't have flash, one of many reasons are that the flash makes the phone look ugly, as most of the time the flash is just added because it will help sell the phone, also the thing people forget is that having a flash on the camera makes the photos look flat, and well in my opinion ugly.
I absolutely love The HTC Desire 510 regardless of the flash and if you know you will be needing a flash on your phone Then dont get it its plain and simple! Overall I LO VE IT!! :)
I just can´t stop laughing :-D. 1st why everybody is crying for flash? You wanna take photos in night with phone??? Are you serious guys :-D? Buy a compact camera! 2nd our eye can recognize i think just 300 ppi - every more he will not recognize as better (because of biology in the eye :-P). Plus my phone has 160 ppi and I find it very good. This have 208 ppi so I am very pleased with that :-). THIS PHONE is quick, big screen, batery sustainability, new android, perfect HTC Sense, low price. I can´t wait to have it home ;-).
It would have been nice and easy-to-use if htc 510 would have been provided with a flashlight. I strongly feel that flashlight is a mandatory feature that is provided in almost all the mobile phones, yet htc did't feel it necessary to provide a simple, yet useful feature i.e. flashlight !!!!
desire 510 could've been an awesome fone if htc had given a better screen resolution..around >250 ppi..screen toooo bad..
Yes last time was laggy & phone over heated because the htc os is Not optimized but from jelly bean 4.2 onward till the kitkat os 4.4 vast improvement took place..the HTC ui is very smooth and totally diffent compare before. I bet im using htc one xl 2012,HTC desire 601..and now planning the HTC desire 820 64bit processor octacore, 8mp front facing camera compare to iPhone 6 miss match..hardware was from 2010 technology although 20mmm nano tech but still dualcore camera still 8mp front 1.2mp only..maybe only improve in battery life...
