The Desire 530 just doesn’t deliver on performance, whether it’s something as basic as waiting for an email to load or more taxing tasks such as quickly switching between multiple apps. You’re going to find yourself waiting for apps to load, pages to fill in, and eventually it’s going to get annoying.

I’m usually pleased with HTC devices for the most part but the Desire 530 is a disappointing affair. Its display is pretty weak outdoors, its processing power is abysmal and it just seems to take long to upload anything. Its true saving grace is its colorful splash coating and its price point as you can get one from T-Mobile for about $160 retail.

More drip than splash

HTC Desire 530

from Tom's Guide ( )

HTC's Desire 530 is not without its charms, even beyond the phone's low price tag. Both cameras deliver better photos than you might think, you get a full day's worth of power, and the Boomsound feature delivers pretty good sound through headphones.

Ultimately the HTC 10 delivers in more areas than not. Performance is top-notch owing to that Snapdragon 820 chip, the battery is long-lasting and there's plenty of storage. The sleek lines and clean industrial finish aren't only skin deep thanks to the tidy Android OS experience, and the improved BoomSound speakers and additional support for hi-res audio make it the ideal choice for those looking to up their audio game.

HTC has always been known as the brand that makes good looking smartphones. It hasn’t really made a smartphone that is not only good looking but also delivers an excellent performance package. The HTC 10 comes really close to that ambition. It maintains the elegant metal design and is almost as powerful as most of the flagship smartphones out there. The software is lighter, more fluid while still maintaining that HTC charm. Even the camera sees a far better capability compared to older generations.

Much-needed improvement

HTC 10

from Brighthand ( )

Given that the competition stepped up its game this year, the HTC 10 smartphone cannot fairly be called the best flagship on the market. Taking into account all its features and flourishes reveals that it’s close though, and much closer than it was at this point in 2015.

In the end, while we really like some aspects of the HTC 10 such as the (still) stellar build quality, pretty much stock Android, and stable, reliable performance, we’re not so certain it’s the first phone we’d pick when lined up alongside the Galaxy S7 or LG G5 (much less several of the Chinese based “flagships” such as those made by Huawei). Again, it’s a good phone. But it’s not a “wow” phone that’s overly flashy. In the end we can ask if it really needs to be. (The answer is generally no.) Stability and reliability are somewhat underrated these days.

HTC 10 doesn’t disappoint on any crucial aspect. But the problem for HTC is there are other options in the market, offering a similar experience that comes very close. Two phones I think of are: Nexus 6P, which is my personal favourite, and yes the newly launched OnePlus 3 that so far has wowed reviewers across the board. For HTC 10 the challenge is not convincing users it is a great phone, the challenge is the pricing.

Whether HTC's attempt at making a unique design statement with the Desire 530 has been successful is probably a matter of taste. Regardless of that, the casing pleases with its decent build and good hardware buttons. However, it hardly conveys a high-quality feeling due to the choice of materials, and in particular since it is quite large for a smartphone with a 5-inch screen.

It is by no means a flawless device but never before has HTC come so close to create a near-perfect phone. The HTC 10 is the culmination of everything that the Taiwanese company stands for and has embraced what really makes a HTC phone to the T. Can we wholeheartedly recommend the hardware though? Well, if the camera capability is of utmost priority, then the 10 just isn’t competent enough and the likes of the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone handily push ahead.

Of the eight (8) phones that I have had over the course of ten years, I have never had one better. I had it for a few months shy of a full two year term. For me, this phone was as fast as the major brand phones (S series, iPhone,etc.) But at a fraction of the cost. The best thing about it was the dual front speakers, I could have it on one level of volume and it was so clear and loud. The speed of the phone was incredible, and it rarely crashed, glitched, froze, or otherwise underperformed for me. Then I made the stupid mistake of "upgrading" to a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime for school. It was NOT worth it, this HTC is better tenfold than that stupid Galaxy phone. Only had that Galaxy phone for 2 months and I want my old HTC back. The message of this story, NAME BRAND IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER!!

The HTC Desire 516 Dual sim is one of the worst Smartphones! Based on my experience, and after using the phone for 8 month, i can't recommend anyone to buy this phone. First, there's the Apps transfer issue: You cannot move or transfer any of your apps from the internal memory to the SD Card. Now if the phone is supported with 8,16,32 GB of internal memory, i could accept such option, but with 2 GB internal memory! That's totally stupid. If you have installed just the most famous applications that everyone use (Whatsapp, Facebook, Viber, File Explorer, and other built-in and Google apps) you will not be able to install any other specialized app you probably need. What can i give as a mark to this stupid option? 1/10. Second, why the company insists that the internal memory is 4 GB, and the users cannot access more than 2 GB? I am surprised for such dumb situation, and it makes HTC look so Stupid! As i understand from several reviews, many of the Desire 516 Dual Sim faced this problem, with no clear answer of it: Is there anyway to access the full 4 GB? Or it's a lie that the phone has a 4 GB memory? So, as a result, the memory will earn 3/10. Third, the Camera performance. It's accepted in Good lightning conditions, not Very good, and certainly NOT PERFECT. it's just OK. On the other hand, and on bad lightning conditions (such as in the night) the camera performance is so bad, and that because of the low brightness produced by the LED Flash. Bad camera, it will not earn more that 3/10. Fourth, i can say that the overall performance of the phone is "OK". i don't have any problem of slow performance. It's not so fast, but it's not slow. It's "OK". What i mean by "Overall Performance" is how quick the phone is opening and closing certain application, how much time does it take to accomplish a task with certain application...etc. However, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Processor, i couldn't expect more. My mark here will be 6/10. Fifth, the touchscreen. Also "OK", not "Bad" and not "Perfect". It's stable, and haven't any problem with multitouch tasks. The touchscreen deserves 6/10. Maybe there's one good thing about the phone, and it's the design. The design is simple, you get all your necessary things where you expect them (Power button, volume buttons...) and it express the HTC design line. As a result, i will give this phone 4/10 as a total mark. I wouldn't recommend this phone to any one. This is not a Good Mid-Range phone, this a Bad phone whatever the category of classification is.

Info & Contact

About HTC

High Tech Computer Corporation, or HTC, is a major player in the wireless marketplace. Originally HTC made phones for other manufacturers, but more recently has made a big splash by putting their own name on an array of exciting, cutting edge devices.

HTC’s cell phone focus is generally the high end devices with the very latest technology, although as a manufacturer for other companies they made a whole range of phones.

During 2007 and 2008 HTC became one of the most talked about cell phone manufacturers and continues to create excitement based on their novel smartphones and, more recently, touch screen interfaces.
