I've bought this phone for a friend for 150 euro. In this price range it was the best phone he could have bought. I've spent some time with the phone setting it up. Despite specifications the phone has Android 6 and Sense 7. The interface was very fluid. The apps updates were downloaded fast and installations didn't caused lag. I was also pleasently surprised by the look of the phone.
Good phone for the money, only issue is my screen cracked within 1 week on very light pressure. for this money why not gorilla glass if moto g can ?
This phone supports U3 micro-SD card and can make it into internal storage on android 6. Has a switch to hyper power-saving mode can hold up to a week without charging. Great value for light users!
nila khan, 27 Apr 2016I want to buy a new smartphone, so which one should i buy htc desire 530 or gmLG K10. Which on... moreLg k10 definetely!!!
Better chipset(sd410 vs 210)
better cpu (quad a53 cores vs quad a7) or even octa if its a mediatek version... big difference.
better camera (and its 13mp vs 8mp).
ram is the same or 1gb on k10 if snapdragon (still ok for a budget and k10 is optimized to run smooth)
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, on k10 vs Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n,
desire 530 is overpriced, I dont even know why it exists... the only thing going for it is dual speakers...
I want to buy a new smartphone, so which one should i buy htc desire 530 or gmLG K10. Which one will be better for everything. Plz suggest me.....
I just bought this phone and my last one was an s6 and i can tell you that the htc is really really fluid, i was quite amazed. the look is great with all the multi-colored micro dots on the back, the price is only a fraction of the "flagship" smartphones, the feel is great and solid in the hand and its not a common phone at all if you want to stand out of the crowd. why waste 300 to 400 more euros on "flagships" when these phones do the job astoundingly well!
p.s: no gaming
Al, 15 Apr 2016It's a retro phone with modern capabilities. Retro Chip also
HTC desire 530 should be considered a "non-removable Li-Ion 2200 mAh battery" model.
I've paid for it, played around with it, tested it and destroyed the corner and soft back-cover to see if I could see the battery.
The back cover required the front stickers to be removed with a few screws. The screws are Torx screws (six angle star shaped), which is uncommon for cover removal.
Omg.... How ugly it is... M7 was the best android phone ever. How comes HTC evolved from that to this :/

Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016I compared this phone with Samsung galaxy j1 2016 . and see that htc is far better than Samsun... morecomparing the desire 530 with the samsung j1 are u high they npt even in the same price Bracket. Samsung j3 should be compare not the j1. j1 is a budge phone more on par with the 300 series of the desire line. and megapixel dont count for desire 600 and 500 series cuz the camera is higher mega pixel but still get crappy pictures frm them.
how about doing a proper comparson bye the j3 and then post that or get the desire 300 serie to compare to ur j1.
