Htc desire 310 is a very average phone, everything about it shouts average, from its processor to its camera. But in the benchmark tests it performed a little above than average or you can also say a little better than what you would expect from a phone under this price range. Some of the benchmark tests like T-rex test of geekbench test didn’t even start. The reason it stated for not being able to run the test was not the weak CPU or GPU but its lack of RAM. As this phone has only 512MB RAM which acts as a bottleneck for demanding games and benchmark tests. Below are the screeshots of benchmark results.
Gaming wise this phone is pretty good actually, it can play any game you put on it easily thanks to its low resolution screen. That’s all good and well but it’s not that easy to install games on it in the first place. Because it has only 1.8GB free memory out of advertised 4GB. This phone has an option of “default write storage”
meaning you can select whether internal memory or micro sd card to store data but the problem is, it’s for only saving multimedia like music, photos, videos and other stuff. You can’t save or install games or app data on the micro sd card. Apart from 512MB RAM, this is another problem that this phone has. Eventually all the problems that this phone has are all memory related. But it can run graphic intensive games pretty well for example it ran Asphalt 8 without any problems, you can see for yourself in the video below.
