HTC Desire 310 with Quad core and 4.5 Inch Display at 11,350 INR

Dual SIM HTC Desire 310 which we reported to have landed in India couple of weeks back is now retailing on Snapdeal for Rs. 11,350. This time HTC has opted for 1.3 GHz quad core low cost MediaTek chipset and has also managed to price it right if we compare it to earlier HTC phones.

Apart from the budget quad core chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz, the phone flaunts an adequate sized 4.5 inch display with 854 x 480 pixels (FWVGA) across it. The pixel density is fairly usable at 217 ppi.

RAM capacity is 512 MB and internal storage is standard 4 GB. You can further expand it by another 32 GB using MicroSD card support. The software is Android 4.2.2 jelly bean which is not as appealing any more. Its high time OEM shift to Android KitKat for better performance on humble hardware.

Imaging hardware is fairly basic with 5 MP shooter at the back and a VGA front shooter for video calls. The battery capacity is 2000 mAh and connectivity features include 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, microUSB v2.0 and Bluetooth 4.0.

HTC offering will give good fight to phones like Gionee M2 and Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini, but Moto G lingering 2000 bucks above in line is expected to outshine it.
