HTC has already started creating a buzz all over the Asian smartphone industry by launching HTC Desire 310, a budget smartphone. Available at an affordable pricing of 599 AED only, this smart device is said to be one of the most efficient yet pocket friendly smartphone the company has ever produced. Offering features such as multi-tasking, video creation and smooth browsing like any other upper end versions of HTC smartphones in the Desire series. Here’s a quick review about the key Tech Specs and Features of HTC Desire 310.
Design, Look and Feel
HTC is always known for its unique sleek and out of the ordinary design and with the newly HTC Desire 310, the Taiwanese Tech giant has yet again successfully crafted an amazing smartphone with cool design, look and feel. Although the company is known for manufacturing some high end Smartphones utilizing aluminum metal as the base, this time considering the low budget segment, HTC as always decided to go with a plastic model for its Desire 310. The design is nothing out of the ordinary compared to HTC’s flagship phone ergonomically perfect in your hands .
Display and Features
The HTC Desire 310 is packed with a 4.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display offering a resolution of 480×854 pixels which is quite disappointing with the evolution of FHD displays in budget smartphones. With such low resolution display, the average pixel density sums up to just 218 ppi which is surprising low for a 4.5 inch smartphone well forget the pixel density on a budget friendly phone the display has a cool blueish tone throughout and all the other colurs are bare minimum.
On the contrary, the device is powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. This budget device is further assembled with HTC’s own Sense 5.1 UI with minimum use of HTC sense and you will find the standard Android interface throughout the phone maybe to reduce the use of memory and processing power on this phone.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Desire 310 is equipped with a 5 MP primary camera alongside a 0.3 MP front facing camera to support video calls as well as snapping a selfie. The camera is just OK keeping in mind that it’s an entry level device and a budget smartphone equipped with a low resolution display as well.
The device offers a pretty low internal storage space of 4 GB with an option to expand the memory up to 32 GB externally using a micro SD card. Avid smartphone users who like to keep a plethora of applications in their device will find the internal memory storage space of 4 GB ridiculously low.
Processor and Battery
Now talking about the energy and heart of any smartphone, the HTC Desire 310 is equipped with a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6582M processor. The company during the launch claims that this processor is designed to offer a smooth user experience for HTC Desire 310 owners. The device also features a 1 GB RAM that powers the multi-tasking feature of the device. Taking a note, the chipset used in HTC Desire 310 is a first time by a tier one manufacturer at this price range.
To power the device, HTC has installed a 2,000 mAh battery on the Desire 310 that has the capacity of holding up the device longer delivering up to 11 hours of talk time and up to 852 hours of standby time.
Although being a low budget smartphone, the HTC Desire 310 comes along with all major connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, 3G and micro USB. In spite of its low price tag, the user will never have to compromise on connectivity limitations.
No doubt, after the US market, all the major gadget manufacturer are eyeing for the Asian and Middle east market and to get a grip they must establish a good consumer base in the region. All the tech giants are aware of the fact that Asian region are highly price conscious and in order to target the majority of the consumer base in this region, the companies have to launch some efficient but low priced smartphones.
With the launch of HTC Desire 310, an entry level device, HTC has just done that. Our verdict about the device is pretty much mixed up. Although the Desire 310 shines with its stunning design and faster performance, it lacks pretty much when it comes to the camera quality and low display screen resolution. It’s only best if you want to flaunt around with a branded device but doesn’t want to spend much on it.
