The phone is slow compared to other economy phones. The camera in the front is in an odd corner position that sticks out bulky and seems to want to catch on things. My lens cracked from being in my pocket and ive had the phone for only a week. The interface is restricted and the ram is lower than all other brands. I got sold this phone on an upgrade and I might go back to my old LG K7, but i spent 100 bucks on this new phone. It was recommended to me by the sales representative. The battery drains so quickly by the constant updates and giant data the "pre installed apps" came with.

I cannot recommend HTC 530.I cannot access certain phone numbers such as 1300 & 1800, known as hotlines in Australia. Very restricted. I hate the phone. It should be removed.
It's the worst phone I've ever had. The design is terrible, little ergonomic, which slips easily from the hands by the type of materials used by HTC in it. The large dimension does not allow you to handle it easily with one hand. HTC blocks some important features of Android as a multi-user feature and uses the SENSE system itself as the main application and this limits the operation of the phone. I would have preferred to buy the Huawei GR3 with similar or lower price with better features than it.
It's a pretty good phone it's better then a cheap Android yet still cost efficient, it looks modern and sleek not that, that matters but some people do care, I would recommend
NotHappy, 02 Nov 2016Worst phone I ever have. Don't waste your money for something so bad. 1. Battery bad, if you ... moreVery bad phone because of the phone space which is 16MB and it is written 4GB and it becomes very slow at any time and you are forced to formate it.
