For a while now we are seeing Android manufacturers embrace the trend of searching, leaving aside the range of the device, a good user experience. This particular war, uncovered by the G bike, could not become better to those who want a good phone without investing too.
In this line, we assume, introduces its new 510 Desire HTC. A phone of 4.7 inch that without large specifications is interesting. It arrives as the first smartphone with 64-bit with the 410 Snapdragon processor. We have tested and this is our analysis.

Outside we have a device not as small as we could wait for your screen, taking into account also that leave aside the bet Boomsound brand, with its characteristic sound in stereo in the upper and lower part of the front. The speakers are at the back. Returning with regular changes of HTC, the volume controls found on the right, and the terminal at the top lock, is also where the headphone jack.
Something large and heavy, but very solid and comfortable in the hand.
Entering the more purely aesthetic section, already in already more inaccessible terrain through a press, the 510 Desire release feel great in your hand. It is not light. On the contrary, but is very robust. Gummy and Matt touch on the back provides good grip, while a few more rigid side frames give us security.
The back cover of the battery is removable. As a result, we have battery access, that we can exchange (if someone makes it). While this may seem small for times running, you will see that it is not so much. The SIM comes in micro format, and we have access to a microSD card.
The truth is that the 158 grams of this phone make it something heavy, although it does not to be uncomfortable and gives a sense of consistency in hand. What if subtraction integers is the size, HTC continues insisting on the large edges, this time without the excuse of the sound Boomsound.
This makes the phone too long, with a screen that becomes small in a big body (is the same width – same diagonal, wide format – 4 Nexus, and around half a centimeter higher). The edges are great, Yes, but the phone is very comfortable in hand with those hardened plastic edges that give it great rigidity and the rear in Gummy touch: the phone seems as solid as a rock in his hand.

The screen is one of the weaker elements This phone, and not just its FWVGA (854 x 480) resolution, which we are not used to see not even in this type of phones. With 208 points per inch, it is not difficult to see spots or that this resolution may seem insufficient in common tasks like browsing the web.
In 2011, this was the resolution of the high ranges. Today, any resolution below the qHD seems very poor.
The feeling is that the screen is in a substratum to the touch panel, which makes that it does cost something more atinar when, for example, to type text. This product is also reduced, as we have the feeling that it is not the most immediate in keystrokes. We also noticed one rapid loss in quality with angles of vision, in a panel that lights up the dark too and that is not too well with exterior light, with many highlights.
These pixels per inch, they are there and it’s not very difficult to see them.
While it is true 4.7 inch aren’t too much bias, the 510 Desire makes it difficult to gain access to the entire screen. The bottom edge, with the band we see in each HTC, becomes larger than it should be. Much more.
Performance and autonomy
There is no evil that good doesn’t come. Or so they say. The small screen resolution, 0.41 million points compared to 0.92 million in HD resolutions, does that the phone moves really fluent in virtually all situations.
The same low resolution remaining points in terms of screen coupled with the performance and autonomy of the phone. Note here is very good
Here we have the Snapdragon 410 with its 306 Adreno, which represents a slight improvement on the Snapdragon 400 305. Even though it’s a facelift of a mid-range, quad-core processor and running at a frequency of maximum of 1.2 GHz; some of the numbers that are very good.
Battery, as we have been progressing, is not very large. But the 2,100 mAh are enough to endure a day without any problems, even a second If the use we give is not too high.
Here put it against the HTC Desire 816, with one of the variants of the Snapdragon 400, 1.5 GB of RAM and 720 p screen.

We leave in the background the fact that the processor in question is the first company to market with the 64-bit hardware support. Based on the ARM Cortex-A53 architecture, it is the equivalent of the Cortex-A7 we were seeing so far on low-power processors with the ARMv8 instruction set support. This is because Android still has not come to support the 64-bit officially (will do so in the next few weeks), and It is based on the 32-bit version Thanks to the compatibility of these designs.
It is possible that HTC decided to upgrade this phone to Android L, 64-bit version, what would add you a plus of efficiency to the system. Even though would not be too large, coupled with the fact that Android L with their Art as a virtual machine by default, could give a good push.
The quality of LTE connections is very good, or at least everything that should be in the tests we have done. Compared to a Galaxy Note 3, download speeds, latency and ascent are practically identical, some 28/7 Mbps in both when we tested consecutively, in the same place (not very good 4 G hedge, incidentally) and under the same network operator.
The camera comes just right, too. While its main sensor is 5 megapixels, the camera is fixed focus (has no autofocus) and does not flash. The quality of the photos is not very good under these premises, and is not. It’s a camera to muddle through, always under bright environments.
We leave you with a series of images so you can see it with your own eyes.

HTC incorporates the same camera modes that previous devices, having a curious effect. What better way to leave with the same photo taken with each of the effects. Some have adjustable parameters, such as blur, distortion or reconstruction in circles, with which we can customize outlet.

The Desire 510 comes with recording in Full HD and a fast recording at 60 fps mode, but only be by capabilities, because your processor allows it and the native resolution of the camera is superior. But this does not mean that we will give nothing, to start we have to remove the material from the phone.
In the layer of software and in the optimization of their phones HTC WINS many integers. Sense 6.0 is the name of this customization, which we like. You don’t have too many items, so it is not confused. In addition, integration is good and the performance that gives on the phone is pretty high, being visually very nice.
We like the software. It is clean, useful and fast. Without thousand options that we do not need.
Account with Common Sense 6.0 additives in other brand phones. Comes with BlinkFeed, allowing us to select information sources ranging from social networking feeds and display them as a list with images to the left of the first desktop.
When we tested the 816 Desire still were not ready on the device, now if the they are in the 510 Desire. It is of the Zoe, small pieces of video generated from a series of photographs and videos, to which is added small enhancements and music. It’s a small social network style of Vine or Instagram videos. While still not option to embed clips, you can access the testing that we have done.
As he advanced, the 510 has a hidden plus processor, which can give you an added later with the launch of Android L and the 64-bit, you could use use its Snapdragon 410, If it is that it is updated.
But could not mention the energy saving modes that incorporates, one normal, which simply reduces the performance of the system, and allows us to extend the service life considerably. Then there is the end, which we can set which will activate when a 20, 10 or 5% of battery, which reduces our smartphone features a phone with SMS, calls, the application contacts and music. This mode is perfect for sleep, because the phone hardly varies his drums on a couple of points.
Available as an accessory of the Dot View cover with holes on its front cover, and allows us to configure what kind of design we want to show with this. It is practical, because you can display information such as incoming calls or the time without having to open it.

Desire 510, the opinion of Engadget
The 510 Desire is without a doubt an excellent terminal within the range of input to which you belong. Comfortable, very fluid, is licensed to operate for more than one day away from wires, and (at least in appearance) very long-lasting and resistant.
However HTC does again errors committed over and over again with their terminals: that perhaps the phone is something great for the screen size that has or that its price is not commensurate with the general lines phone (it is likely that for 50 euros less sell them like hotcakes).
On the other hand the screen perhaps goes too short in features, and more pointed is for your camera. If not give it too much importance to having the best camera, and want a phone that behaves and is able to move all running applications without any problem during a long day, it could be your phone.
- Good autonomy
- Nice design
- Sense adds points
- Memory expansion is possible
- Oversized top and bottom frames
- Extremely basic camera
- The resolution is not up to
- Significantly high price
