The advances in technology and components mean that smartphones need not be as expensive as they once were, but just because they are cheaper, does not make them cheap or necessarily inferior to others. The reality is you are getting more for less compared to just a couple of years ago.

HTC’s Desire 530 is a great example of value for money and performance in a smartphone.

Unless you really need or desire the absolute best in internal specifications the 530 has what you and I need to remain in contact and functional on the go.

Whilst phone calls, text messages and personal information management are at the core of the Desire, it does considerably more.

Through the 5” touchscreen display you can interact with the Android 6 Operating System that is installed on this device. Android is a Google product and as such services like Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Drive and other services are part and parcel of what you get from the moment you switch the Desire 530 on.

If you already have a Google account, you can be up and running within minutes, making calls, browsing the web via WiFi or 4G, streaming media and more.

The 8-megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash allows you to capture images even in low light environments and these can be easily edited on the phone if you choose. Use the default tools or download other apps from Google Play store. Share the image on social media, upload it or email it.

4G connectivity allows for quick communication and web browsing on the go (subject to network coverage) and there is, of course, WiFi which can be used when within the range of a network.

Bluetooth allows for connectivity to peripherals such as car kits and more, expanding the ways in which the Desire 530 works for you.

16GB of internal memory gives you a place to store your files, but should you need more there is the option to insert a microSD memory card into the card slot.

Available in different colours, the 530 has its own personality with accented buttons that add a splash of personality and make it look different to many other phones out there.

A blend of performance and price the Desire 530 comes with a 2000mAh battery which should last you all day.
