Bought HTC Desire 530 from Officework in August 2017, started to have problem by December 2017 where not able to "answer" in coming calls as it appears the "answer" on the touch screen is faulty. Also the blue tooth kept switching off by itself. Despite the phone is brand new, and 4 months old, Officework insisted on repair which will takes couple of weeks. Now I am stuck with no phone! Stay away from HTC products!!
It was working good, then a yellow spot appeared on the right side of the screen and now it won't charge, and according to the carrier I am screwed no warranty and I have a protection plan. The phone is in excellent condition never been dropped or wet, they should give me another phone since the battery's are defective but they won't. Bad company
Well, i have the phone for about 18months... it is not souch a bad phone as others suggest.... it does support an sd card, and i'd recomment upgrading the storage, because it is constantly updating something, and alot of space is used by the apps and android. bat life is as expected for 2000mah batt. when not using, it lasts 2 days minimal on standby, other than that, normal usage requires daily charge (over night). it boots slow, and the camera is not too good, it is just ok. front cam is crap. It is loud enough, and mic is good, so that is a plus. it is a phone for regular light user. i use it alot to stream youtube on my tv, so.... for a cheap phone, it is ok
I don't know what u complain about
phone its ok for normal user, if i wanted to work like PC with ssd i would get 500$ phone, its its very ok, i have viber, insta, fb lite and rayman in back. and about 500mb free ram, has like 5,5 gb free with 4,5 games...
battery can do 2 days with a bit everything,but its not important at all battery will be full for 1h and 45 min so its nothing, everything its amazing, 3d icons and own HTC store , camera its nice, both of them, sound its nice also, 4g . 130 $ i could never ask for more
Very good phone affordable phone. You get what you pay for. A lot of storage is used up for system itself. I would recommend buying an SD card for the phone if u have lots of files/ music/ downloads/ pictures etc. It certainly is an efficient, affordable and sleek Android phone for everyday use.
Bought this for budget reasons due to an embarrassing incident with my prior phone and I am flat out double embarrassed that I did. Not only do I have to pay so little for a device that I can hardly use but I have to hard boot every time I run out of juice on the damn thing. You know what that is? Emergency menu and reboot from there. Not exactly my kind of startup process. Even coming from a Windows PC background.
Bottom line is that if you see this on eBay or any kind of carrier closeout (even the big red V like in my case) then just click right past and go to the next lowest price. Never did I have the words "get what you pay for" blast my brain so much. People I know want me to get rid of it and so far I resisted the call because fixed income (which is also why I bought it as the cheapest one I could get on the Verizon website). Sadly I am going to have to pay a junker or something and pay the price, except that I now have to jack up the family account because consolidated services. Don't make the same mistake, even in the same exact conditions I did. Never AGAIN. Heck, I am even going to consider Rift over Vive as a gamer if I ever try VR just because I have no respect for HTC because of this (and that says something for someone who used their brand in the past).
Again like I said I will give it a proper review as well..FYI..To be able to review a phone you got to personally have it in your hands first and try it in every way as well..Those bad comments are not very convincing about this phone.
I am about to buy this phone because it seems to be great for having I have read many reviews I believe on the good ones given not the bad ones I'm going to try it my self and will give it a proper review as well.
Please DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. It is possibly the worst economical mistake I have commited in my life. IT TAKES AGES FOR THE BATTERY TO BE FULL. I have been having this phone for about a year and it brings me constant rage. Whats worst the BATTERY DRAINS SOOOO FAST. The camera is very crappy and it took me to travel to leagues of shops to find a screen protector for this pile of junk.
Phone work fine and it's 16gb so you end up with around 7gb free so don't listen to people who say there's no storage, if they knew who to control a phone "properly" they wouldn't moan, just don't update apps you don't use, and as for the battery unless your sitting in the sun turn down your screen brightness... These amateurs who pretend they are phone experts and write reviews.. but haven't got a ucking iglue
Please do not buy this phone. This phone has caused me so much rage. I had it for about 8 months and during the last 5 months the battery constantly says using too much power even though i have no apps running. I only have music and a few small social media apps and my phone was always less than 2 gb due to the htc factory installed apps. This phones camera is slow as it takes about 4 seconds to finally snap. I just broke my phone with a cleaver on purpose and im never buying a trash phone like this again.
I bought the phone 4 months ago, but I didn't try whether it support SD card or not.
Later I realized that my desire 530 doesn't support SD card.
This is my first time of using HTC phone, but am a little bit disappointed in the HTC company. The internal memory for the apps and other files is only 0.98MB.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2017What is the wrong please ? I askq because I want to buy it.Don't do it
I have had this phone for about a year and a half I have some good and bad things about it. My cons are the battery, it it pretty worthless it constantly just drains. It's never their. I had recently got an exchange from a watery because my phone battery jumped from 80% to 3% when I had restated my phone when the phone wouldn't open any apps. I do indeed like the camera and just the screen in general. I went to a HTC because it sounded positive Island I can no longer agree with my previous thoughts.
Jack Of All, 05 Mar 2017I bought this for my mother. This is my first HTC and I am not impressed. The phone has over... moreI am having mine for almost a year now and the battery overheating only when I charge it in hot weather not carrying it outside of my bag or pants.
The crashes only started occurring after the phone updated something so now I have to be a bit carefull when operating it .I have never seen my phone go in root mode. But I put my phone in developer mode so maybe that's the reason
This phone is great! I have always used Nokia before and have tried different brands which i haven't liked. HTC is really simple to use, is reliable, fast and works perfectly all the time.
Iam from iran this phone is bad and i have this
Front camera is suck
