It seems the Taiwanese giant is not ready to give up and has launched new budget smartphones, expanding its Desire lineup.

Does HTC Desire 310 dual sim deliver a good smartphone experience? Read our review to find out.

Build & Design
Being a budget smartphone, HTC Desire 310 dual sim has a very utilitarian design and is built from plastic materials. Barring a metallic earpiece that differentiates the phone from others, the phone looks rather plain. At 140gram, the phone is not very bulky. Although it includes a removable cover, we did not experience any squeaks or wobbles, and the phone feels solid.

The front panel of the phone features glossy plastic that surrounds its 4.5-inch display. There are no capacitive keys for navigation as the phone offers on-screen soft keys. There’s a metallic earpiece grill located above the di…………… continues on Times of India
