With all of the choices in the cell phone market out today, it's sad that anyone would willingly choose the HTC Desire 510. I bought one when upgrading my phone on 1/29/15 and upgrading to the "New" Cricket from the "old" one. Well, I had an HTC One SV, which I loved and still worked great a year and a half later. I was told this was the upgrade. I was lied to.

If you like taking pictures that look like they were taken from a Moto RAZR (the flip phone from 2004), this phone is for you. Zoom? Flash? What are those?? This phone came out in 2015 and is barely capable of taking pictures that look like they were taken this decade. Do you enjoy using your phone as a QR scanner? Or like scanning your paychecks to your bank account? Well, skip this phone because it's camera can do neither!

Who doesn't love all of these new apps like Periscope? Great, isn't it? Well, isn't compatible with the HTC Desire 510. And the apps that do work, have features missing. Like all those flashlight apps that use the flash as a light? Well, not here you don't. Like using games where the front camera can scan in items like Angry Birds? Well, stop playing them now, because this phone doesn't play well with those.

Tired of receiving all of those pesky text messages? All of those people who want to get ahold of you just bugging you? Then give this phone a whirl! This isn't Cricket's problem, I have other phones on my account and have tried other phones with my SIM card, no problems with texts. The HTC Desire...

The People Need to Know.

I created an account just to write this review. This phone is incredible. When it's cold out or you haven't used it in a while you have to warm it up before the screen will work. If the screen is not the exact right temperature it will acknowledge your breathing, blinking and a breeze as someone touching the screen. Simply turning the phone on fills up it's minuscule storage space. The camera is a feat all it's own, with no focus and no flash. Having to actually type all this out is causing me pain and anger at the fact that the damn thing is sitting next to me right now.
