Camera and Internal Storage

The rear camera of the Karbonn MACHONE Titanium S310 is an 8 MP sensor with sensor with auto focus, LED flash and BSI sensor onboard. As mentioned above, the smartphone makes use of a selfie focused front facing snapper of 5 MP resolution that should be capable of capturing wonderful low light snaps as it is supplemented with LED flash as well.

Internal storage is 8 GB and it can further be expanded by another 32 GB using a micro SD card. This is again very standard for a device in this price range and should be decent enough for basic and moderate users.

Processor and Battery

A 1.3 GHz quad core MediaTek processor of unspecified chipset that gets teamed up with 1 GB of RAM powers the smartphone from within. Though the chipset used remains unknown, we believe it could be the MT6582 SoC that is commonly used in the sub Rs 10,000 priced smartphones. Anyways, the device would be a moderate performer as the other devices in this class.

Battery capacity is 1,800 mAh that is pretty average for an entry level smartphone, but it should be rendering a decent backup to the device that a basic user would expect from it.

Display and Other Featrues

The display on Karbonn MACHONE Titanium S310 is 4.7 inches in size and features HD 1280×720 pixel resolution. This is good enough with desired sharpness considering the size of the screen. Moreover, it is an IPS panel that will deliver pretty decent viewing angles for its pricing.

Software running on the Karbonn phone is Android 4.4 KitKat and it can be upgraded to v5.0 Lollipop sometime in future. There are connectivity aspects such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS with aGPS and dual SIM functionality.

Comparison

The Karbonn MACHONE Titanium S310 would be a great competitor to the other such selfie smartphones including Lava Iris Selfie 50, Nokia Lumia 730, Huawei Honor Holly and others.
