HTC Desire 530 expert review:

HTC Desire 530 release date : February 2016

HTC is seen coming up with a lot of new variants in its store to cater to the different smartphones users. Gone are the days when HTC products very expensive and not so efficient. HTC is the original equipment of Google’s flagship: Pixel. This review on the HTC Desire 530 talks about its pros & Cons, design, features, specifications and more.

What’s hot?

Android Marshmallow Operating system, Dedicated slot for expandable memory

What’s not?

2200 mAh battery,  1.1 Ghz processor


The HTC Desire 530 configuration of the processor is a combination of the Android Marshmallow operating system with a Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 chipset and a Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A7 processor. A 1.5GB RAM unit powers this device and the graphics in the 5 inch screen are projected with perfection with an Adreno 304 GPU.

Design and Display:

The HTC Desire 530’s review on the design is impressive. For, the colour combination of black and white on the device makes it very youthful. The phone sports a 5 inch Super LCD screen with a screen to body ratio of 66.2%. The screen produces a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with a pixel density of 294 pixels per inch.


The HTC Desire 530 camera review is inspired by its 8+5MP camera unit. It features a 8MP primary camera which is built in with Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama, autofocus, and  LED flash. The primary camera has an aperture of f/2.4 which is quite high. The camera’s LED flash helps the users to take better quality pictures even in low light conditions.

The selfie shooter on this is a 5MP camera with an aperture of f/2.8


The HTC Desire 530 features an internal storage space of 16GB. The presence of a dedicated memory slot adds browny points to the device’s review. The external memory in use can be expanded up to 256GB.


The HTC Desire 530’s battery is a small 2200 mAh unit which is non-removable. The phone’s battery could have been a little bigger to be in what the competitors have to offer.


The HTC Desire 530’s price in India is not out yet. The phone has no specs and features that make it stand apart. The mid level RAM, Processor, Battery and Camera are not enough to make the device the best buying option. However, for the price that it is sold globally, devices like the Coolpad Note 3, Coolpad Note 5, and the Redmi 3S offer much better specifications, features and an appealing design.
