Reviews for the HTC Desire 310

80% HTC Desire 310 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Absolutely everyday suitable. Fantastic smartphone features, low price - according to HTC, that perfectly describes the 4.5-inch Desire 310. The Android entry-level phone is actually available for an affordable 140 Euros (~$191). Our test reveals whether the Desire 310 also passes the function check.

The HTC Desire 310 is a bit of a missed opportunity. Instead of establishing HTC’s position among the more exciting budget phone makers – just as some budget phones are kicking things up a notch – the phone only makes half of the improvements we’re looking for. The HTC Desire 310 has good software and offers decent performance at the price. However, the camera and screen are weak points, and as they’re both pretty important, this is not going to be remembered as an HTC classic.

While we tend to focus on high-end premium smartphones most of the time, it is the mid or low-end phones that sell most as they are catered to entry-level users with lower prices. These smartphones may not be top-of-the-line, but generally offers all the basic stuff you would normally need from a smartphone. The HTC Desire 310 is one such product that tries to offers a similar experience that you would normally get from the company’s higher-end lineup but at a lesser price.

60% HTC Desire 310 Review: This Budget Handset Is Mediocre At Best
Source: Techtree.com English
The Desirer 310 looks better than most Android handsets available in its price range. In spite of packing in only 512 MB of RAM, its performance is decent. However, it disappoints in the display department. Plus, the camera is one of the worst in its category. The competition is steep, not just domestic, but even International brands including Nokia offer much better hardware at a similar price. So if you’re looking for a neat smartphone experience for around Rs 11,500, go for the Lumia 630, which offers better screen, camera, and performance. Those not willing to leave the Android camp, should stretch the budget up to 14k and get the Moto G.

50% HTC Desire 310 review: Buy a Moto G instead!
Source: Tech2.in.com English
With a street price of roughly Rs 11,500, the HTC Desire 310 dual sim is too expensive for what’s on offer. In fact, we wouldn’t even recommend it if dropped to half its price. It’s quite simply a disaster of a product which is too bad when you consider the Desire 210 and Desire 816, which actually have good potential. The Motorola Moto G continues to be the best Android under Rs 15,000. If you don’t mind the rival camp, then we also recommend the Nokia Lumia 525 instead of the 310.

50% HTC Desire 310 review: A budget smartphone not worth its salt
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The HTC Desire 310 has very few positives going for it. You could use it as a phone with basic media playback features, but not much more than that. Moreover, HTC is not doing itself any favours by pricing the phone at Rs. 11,358 which is very close to the Moto G - by far a superior performer. HTC needs to do a lot better than this to do well in today's mid-budget market.

Comment

Model:

HTC has released another mid-range Android smartphone for its 2014 Desire lineup, the HTC Desire 310, targeting new consumers in the market. It has a mid-size factor with its 4.5 inch FWVGA display that offers up to 218 ppi. The phone weighs around 140 grams, which is average considering the size. Its 5 MP rear camera is capable of Full HD recording, while the front camera is only 0.3 MP.  The phone come with a surprising quad core, 1300 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor, which should handle the 4.2 Jelly Bean OS with HTC Sense 5 UI swiftly.

The phone is neat and sturdy, complemented with the touch capacitive sensors for all the home, menu and back buttons, a trademark of all HTC smartphones. The thickness is acceptable for mid-range smartphones and customers will be appealed by the range of colours to choose from. The phone also comes with dual-sim capability that will offer value for money together with its micro-SD card slot supporting up to 32 GB that can be added to the model with 4 GB internal memory offered.

This device should be suitable for users looking for a multipurpose phone that can serve basic smartphone features and more, due to its powerful processor. The display is considered good and should provide satisfactory performance for multimedia usage. The talk time is 11 hours with its 2000 mAh battery and HTC claimed that it can standby up to 35 days.
