The Desire 510 is HTCs budget 4G Android mobile.  It comes with a 4.7″ screen but feels chunky compared to the recently reviewed Alcatel-Onetouch Idol 3.

Unlike high end phones the back and battery on the Desire 510 are removable allowing you to swap the battery on the move.

The 4G element means this is a great phone for web browsing, it’s really nippy when surfing and great if you need to download emails or photos (e.g. on social networks).

You’ve no need to worry about storage as the micro SD card slot supports cards up to a massive 128GB!  The quad core processor keeps things ticking over nicely and handles games well although some may find the screen a little small when using on screen controls.

You might be disappointed when viewing content, at 480 x 854 the screen resolution is low even for a budget mobile.  For day to day activities this isn’t really a problem, but you might find games, videos and images not looking as crisp as on other phones.

The 5MP camera is OK, but not brilliant.  There isn’t a flash and the focus isn’t as fast or accurate as other phones.  Video in daylight is good, the lack of flash means you’ll need to find your own light source for any low light filming.

HTC have done a great job with the Sense interface, it’s slick and works really well without adding loads of unwanted apps.

As well as the Zoe app (which allows you to make styalised photo/video montages) there is also the HTC Car mode which changes the home screen to be big buttons to useful apps such as sat nav, contacts or music.

There is a Kid Mode app pre-installed, when this was opened it needed an update but this wasn’t available for the Desire 510, you’re stuck on the version installed on the handset.

The HTC Desire 510 offers a slice of HTC 4G goodness at an affordable price, but it’s got some stiff competition around this price point.  The screen and lack of flash let down an otherwise good bidget 4G mobile.
