HTC's first 64-bit smartphone
Display and configuration
The HTC Desire 510 sports a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. The operating system on board is Android 4.4 KitKat, with HTC's Sense UI and BlinkFeed news aggregator. It is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor from Qualcomm, with four cores clocked at 1.2GHz. The processor is further supported by an Adreno 360 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The HTC Desire 510 weighs 158 grams and is 9.9mm thick.
Camera and storage
Being a mid-range smartphone, the HTC Desire 510 equips a 5-megapixel primary camera for photography and a VGA front camera for video chatting. Storage on board is 8GB of built-in memory, which is further expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card.
Battery and connectivity
The HTC Desire 510 scores great when it comes to connectivity. Features include 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA, HTC Connect and micro-USB 2.0. Note that the 4G LTE and NFC features of the phone will be available in select countries only. It is fuelled by a 2,100mAh battery, which claims to offers up to 17.17 hours of talk time and up to 646 hours of standby time on 3G networks. The Desire 510 comes in Terra White and Meridian Grey colour options, and is compatible with HTC's Dot View case.
Despite of the fact that the Desire 510 is HTC's first smartphone powered 64-bit architecture, the manufacturer has chosen to price it affordably. However, the device misses an HD display and comes with rather average cameras to account for the price. Go for it if you are looking for a mid-range smartphone that performs snappy even if you play high-end games or run many apps simultaneously.
