Overall User Rating (3.8 Out of 5 based on 146 ratings)
Overall: HTC is back in the 'budget' entry level market again with the new,dual sim,quadcore, Desire 310.
Display - 480 x 854 pixels, 4.5 inches (~218 ppi pixel density)
Android Version - 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)
This is the first handset from HTC to be powered by a cheaper Mediatek chipset - Mtk6582M Quadcore processor. The same chipset is seen in many other devices like Xolo Q700S, Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini, Micromax A114 etc. The processor on board is powerful enough to power up apps and games without much issues. There is one big issue though with Desire 310 - this only has 512MB ram while almost all other mediatek powered devices at this price have 1GB Ram. This is really disappointing.
HTC was kind enough to include their Blinkfeed software in this device,which is missing in many other Desire devices priced higher. Since this is a mediatek device,the UI is a Stock Android one,instead of the one you usually see in almost all HTC devices.So in short,the UI looks like any other device from Xolo,Karbonn,Micromax etc,apart from the blinkfeed on the homescreen and the on screen buttons. This has a 2000mAh battery,good enough to get you through a day on a single charge.
# Some Notable issues
Cannot Move Apps to the sdcard. So you are stuck with around 2GB of internal storage for apps and games
Camera is a FIXED FOCUS 5MP one which means you cant always get the object you wanna focus in focus. Touch to focus is also not functional.
Verdict - Fixed focus camera and 512MB Ram are the two major issues for me. If 'brand' is not that important,i would very much recommend getting some other Quadcore,1GB ram devices at this price range. In branded devices, Sony Xperia E1 is the closest competitor.
