How does this compare to the new Desire 530 currently £99.99 + £10.00 at CPW?

Voted hot BTW
Is there any way to buy this without paying £10 for a top-up?

This is a great deal either way.

I just realised, you don't have to pay O2 that £10 at the time of order - they send you a Sim card and you have to top it up by £10 to activate it if you want to use it.
sounds very good
I bought a ph in DEC from o2 reserved online for store pickup they didn't ask me to buy top-up it was a cheap lg phone so worth a try

Any chance of some feedback on the phone? Chance taking it back?

Thing is, mine is the blue version and the one on O2 is black.

For the hassle of returning the phone, buying an unlock code, waiting for the new phone to arrive, having the black one instead of the blue, it's just not worth it.

I got £20 Argos voucher anyway as I bought something else and they had the promo on.

I love the phone. Probably the best I've had for a long time - I had a Nexus 4, then a Nexus 5, LG G3, and then the Moto G 3rd.

I prefer this over the Moto G 3rd - it has more character to it and is better in the hand. It's very light and the camera is good too.

​626 is better. Better cpu and camera
When this was initially released, the reviews were not that great when compared to the Moto G 3rd Gen but it was £250 at the time!

At this price its pretty good.

The fixed 2000mAh battery would be my only issue
I can confirm this is better than the Moto G. Everything about it is better. No marshmallow yet but that's due next month.
Wow probably one of the best phone manufacturers in the world, great phone...better than my crap samsung alpha rubish

​Yeah I'm not impressed with my nice looking Samsung Galaxy A3 either. It's a horrible performer and signal strength is woeful. Pity really, because it's a very well made device.

Moto G's are far superior - stock Android without the o2 bloatware
does anyone know if these models have Octa-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 or the
Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 ??
How does this compare with the Samsung J5?
Is there a link to the refurbished one ?

Can someone please tell me how I buy an unlocking code? I have ordered this phone and will need to put my Three sim into this phone.

1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, same as Moto G.

looks a nice phone but I don't see any difference to the Moto G spec wise really.

​Go on ebay and search for HTC 626 unlock code. Don't pay any more than £1.75

​Is that from experience of using both handsets personally though? The bloatware can either be uninstalled or disabled. It's better than the Moto G imo

Are you sure, according to PhoneArena they have the same CPU:
Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 8909 Quad-core, 1100 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7

GSM Arena has the 626 with a SD410, so not sure. Comparing the two with the Moto G (16GB/2GB), I would go for the Moto G with water resistant, no bloatware and bigger battery

UK HTC website says snapdragon 410, which given the price would seem right.

Maybe PhoneArena is wrong then, was surprised it was the same.

Was a big fan of HTC, had a Desire S. When I was looking to update I looked first at HTC but was really dissappointed with the price vs spec compared to others. Ended up with an LG G2.
Bought this phone a couple of days ago after my Galaxy S4 broke. It's the first budget smartphone I've bought and I'm very impressed with it for the price.

For anyone unlocking to use on EE you may need to go into Mobile Network Settings and put in the access point names for EE in order to use mobile data. They can be found here apn-uk.gishan.net/set…php
