HTC Desire 510 mini-review

HTC Desire 510

How does the HTC smartphone experience of 2014 translate into an entry-level device?

While most of our attention here at Android Central goes to exciting new high-end devices, the entry and mid-range market has become ever more interesting over the past year, as manufacturers work to bring decent specs and user experiences to millions of new smartphone owners. Most notably, Motorola's Moto G and Moto E have shaken things up in the budget space in the past 12 months with some of the best cheap Android hardware we've seen.

HTC has renewed its focus on less expensive smartphones in 2014 too, fielding lower-cost handsets like the Desire 816 and Desire 610. And now it's time for the Taiwanese manufacturer's own super-low-cost option. The HTC Desire 510 is a budget-centric smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity, and the first to use an all-new CPU from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 410.

Read on to see how things shape up.

Galaxy Note 4 leaks in a strange blocky case

178

With Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 event only days away, it seems inevitable that something else was going to leak before the main event. Here we see Samsung's stylus-friendly smartphone inside a security case to keep its identity a secret, but a handy screenshot from the device courtesy of our source clears up any confusion. This same blocky security case was seen recently in another Note 4 leak from the folks at TechTastic, but there's no doubt that when Samsung is ready for the big reveal the Note 4 will have shed this awkward casing in exchange for some more familiar looks.
