The HTC Desire 530 and Desire 630 share posture as lower-end smartphones here. They also share polycarbonate casings finished with a “micro splash” inkjetting process on the back that makes sure each and every device has its own snowflake of a pattern. Both have five-inch, 720p screens, 2,200mAh batteries, microSD support and a lanyard hook.
The 530 has a Snapdragon 210 chipset with 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, good BoomSound speakers and okay earbuds. The 630 has a Snapdragon 400 processor managing four cores at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera, better BoomSound speakers and better earbuds.
We should note that the better-equipped midranger we found at HTC’s MWC pad, the Desire 825, was not ready for filming. Check out this post for more details on that device, but hit the video below for an idea of how the 530 and 630 stack up.
