Struggling mobile phone giant HTC recently came out with the much awaited HTC Desire 530 in the United States after quite a long wait.
However, there was a serious disadvantage since the phone was available only through T-Mobile networks even in the unlocked versions. Now, the phone is now made available on Verizon networks. This move will significantly help HTC make the phone much more attractive. The HTC Desire 530 came out in March with specifications that were solely intended to increase shipments for the Taiwanese giant. As a result, the phone is attractively priced and offers an excellent option for those looking at the entry level smartphone segment.
A 5 inch display with 720p resolutionmakes for an excellent specification at this price point. This screen is only enhanced by the near bezel free experience on the sides. At a time when most entry-level smartphones are extremely difficult to handle because of their bulk, the HTC Desire 530 feels extremely good in the hand due to it being just 8.3 mm thick. Furthermore, the phone weighs only 140 g.
Android 6.0 made significant changes to the way it made use of its resources. As a result, it is starting to infiltrate more into the entry level segment where the snapdragon 200 range of processors are often used. It is the case with the HTC Desire 530, which has a snapdragon 210 processor. It is definitely not the fastest in the world and it is also supplemented by just 1.5 GB of RAM, but it is more than capable of handling the latest android version quite brilliantly. This factor is one of the biggest advantages on the HTC Desire 530.
Budget smartphones are starting to enter into the 16 GB internal storage limit and HTC Desire 530 continues this tradition. Even though this may not be sufficient to handle a lot of multimedia files, users can always use the dedicated memory card slot provided to expand the storage capacity. This is an area where the HTC Desire 530 shines with its support for 256 GB of memory cards. A rear camera with an eight-megapixel sensor coupled with a front camera with a five-megapixel sensor take care of imaging duties on the HTC Desire 530. All these functions are run courtesy of a 2200 mAh battery, which should be just about sufficient to take the phone through an entire day.
