HTC Desire 510 is the first phone running under the control of Snapdragon 410, which is based on a new design Cortex-A53. How does this system work in practice? See for yourself.
Housing / quality
Plastics and average execution
HTC is a manufacturer that is famous for its superb quality flagship products (in addition to Apple devices, HTC phones can serve as a good reference point for other models on the market) – unfortunately, in the case of cheaper smartphones Taiwanese company likes to go to "shortcuts", saving used in the production materials. This thesis is confirmed Desire 510. Phone Housing is made of plastic – glossy on the back panel and brushed the front and sides. Unfortunately, the properties of materials leave a lot to be desired, and even more: they are the epitome of the worst aspects of what we associate with poor quality plastic. Speaking here especially for the back flip. The material is very susceptible to scratches and damage, collects fingerprints and looks "cheap". [Nggallery id = 1078 template = techmaniak] The fitting elements for happiness is quite robust. The structure is rigid and the rear flap, despite repeated disassembly does not show any signs of loosening. At higher compressions occurred, however, characteristic of the multi-part plastic housing creaking. The dimensions of the phone are considerable, for a device with a screen diagonal of 4.7 ". The relatively large distance between the screen and the edges of the casing can not conspicuous, but unnecessarily lengthen the silhouette of the machine. It is a pity that such a large amount of space was not used in any way , for example, stereo front speakers … Weight smallest smartphone should not be, but fortunately good balance and streamlined shapes make use of your phone does not cause problems, but on the contrary – it is very pleasant.
The display of the previous era
Desire 510 is equipped with a TN matrix with a diagonal of 4.7 "and a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Even the specification suggests that this is not the best unit. The density at 208 pixels / inch at present is considered to be low even in the tablets, not to mention of phones, and the era of the IPS-TN technology that is a relic, after which date back to manufacture smartphones increasingly rare. While low resolution really catches the eye is the color quality and viewing angles are fortunately not the worst – of course, if we do not screen 510 compare with IPS or AMOLED-em-em.The scale of brightness adjustment does not impress. In the sun it is hard to see anything on the screen without obscuring your hand, and it does not help here backlight is not in excess of 319 cd / m2. The minimum value is in turn 65 cd / m2, and therefore too much to comfortably browse through content in total darkness. The touch pad works perfectly and supports up to 5 touch points. During use, I have not met any problems from this part of the device.
Responsible for energy storage is lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 2100 mAh. As shown by the test, it is sufficient for the link 510 and provides a good working times. The phone can withstand more than seven hours watching videos or less half an hour browsing the internet using WiFi. In terms of everyday use, using the full capabilities of the device, we can expect a full day of work, with a few percent of energy supply. Also worthy of mention programmatic support in the form of various types of energy-saving programs. It is also worth mentioning the extreme power saving mode, which limits the functionality of the phone only the basic features, but at the same time extends the operation – sometimes even several times. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "conversation, video-wifi-off, internet-3g, internet-wifi, wifi-messaging, charging-ac" product_id = "20110"] Charging the battery fully takes more than two and a half hours . You can also charge it via USB cable connected to your computer, but it takes a lot longer.
Without revelations … and LEDs
Desire 510 is equipped with a camera that takes pictures at 2560 x 1440 pixels. This is an average individual who in good light is able to capture a clear photo, but nothing more. Photos are often smeared with virtually no reason, not to mention those carried out in low-light conditions. Incomprehensible to me is the lack of any LED Illuminates, especially that it can meet almost all phones, even those with the lowest shelf. The quality of video (1080p) also does not impress, but it is certainly better than the pictures. Videos in bright light onto almost always detailed and sufficiently liquid so that they are suitable for subsequent presentation. [Nggallery id = 1080 template = techmaniak] The high praise worthy while the camera and the camera application. Not only do they look very nice, it works extremely quickly and offers some interesting features. Since its launch to shoot practically not noticeable delay. We can thus take advantage of the multiple filters, set the basic parameters and the ability to quickly edit photos. Could not miss also heavily promoted the exercise of the function of moving pictures HTC Zoe.
Nothing more than the standard
The quality of conversations Deisre 510 falls decently. Despite the considerable size and weight, longer holding the handset to your ear is not a problem. The speaker is loud enough and clear. A single microphone – in the lower part of the front wall of the device – is sensitive enough that under normal conditions the user was clearly audible to his interlocutor.Dialer application is a standard overlay Sense 6. It looks very nice, and this is a practical and fast.
The most powerful party Desire 510
The performance corresponds to the latest system Snaprdragon 410, which is the core of quad-core ARM Cortex A53 clocked at 1.2 GHz and graphics Adreno 306. This is a fresh system – Desire 510 is the first phone in which it was mounted. Its main advantage is to be adapting to handle 64-bit system, but on the test device is running normal, 32-bit Android 4.4 … Despite this, modern unit works great, both in terms of performance and energy efficiency. The system works very smoothly and steadily, phone copes very well with almost all applications and the majority of games, even those demanding. For example, Asphalt 8 runs smoothly on medium graphics settings, Dead Trigger Modern Combat 2 and 4 as well. As expected, the system also provides a pretty good multimedia capabilities. On Desire 510 without a problem watch 1080p video. Unfortunately, there are a lot of 4K liquidity problems, but remember that we are dealing with hardware from a lower-middle shelf.

Software / Functionality
The latest Android and Sense overlay useful
The phone is running Android 4.4.2 with an overlay KitKat HTC Sense interface 6. It is known among other things, the flagship One M8, but a little poorer version. Still, we are dealing with a very nicely looking and smoothly running environment that offers a lot of practical features to pure version of the system. The most promoted by the manufacturer is HTC BlinkFeed function, ie all the latest news from the selected channels in one place, in the form of a nice tiles. I think that for the average user, however, will be more important these minor changes and amenities that the manufacturer added from each other at every step, eg. In the calendar application, the dialer or camera. They make for a very friendly and practical environment HTC Sense, which is, after many lovers. Desire Model 510 is equipped with a wide range of communication modules. The most important is Cat4 LTE module that allows connection of up to 150 Mbps at 800/1800/2600 MHz bands. I think his presence, alongside powerful processor, is a key feature of this model. WiFi operates in the standard b / g / n lets you stay connected in any of our test scenarios. Available to the user leaves the manufacturer also good GPS with A-GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. [Test slug = "wifi-phone" axis = "minus" product_id = "20110"] The phone comes with an internal memory of 8 GB which can be expanded up to 128 GB using a memory card. It boasts 510 Desire for the quality of the external speaker. Although it is not a record loud and located at the rear, it offers very good sound quality. Still, I feel sorry for HTC, that has saved the stereo speakers on the front, especially since it seems like even prepared to not place …
Summary / evaluation / review
Powerful phone with LTE
HTC Desire 510 is a device that is firmly defined strengths at the expense of the rest of negligence. This highly efficient equipment, having a great overlay HTC Sense 6 and LTE module. Very critical to be assessed but the quality of materials performance and screen. It seems as if the manufacturer wanted to create a model to selected targets, and actually for users who want only the selected features. Unfortunately, I fear that today's customer, spoiled by wszystkomające, versatile devices at attractive prices, decides to just such, and not on the Desire 510.
