Summary: I bought this HTC Explorer A310e Unlocked GSM Phone as a gift for my Mom. She started using the phone on December 6th,2013. Within couple of days they noticed the display to be flickering and displaying nothing. This issue occurs frequently and they had to remove the battery and place it again for it to work again. Unfortunately my parents are in India so I won't be able to return the phone to Amazon.
Worst Phone, bad decision, Not good response from HTC

Summary: I purchased this phone for based on price, size and past reviews of HTC products. The appearance and battery performance, are just fine. The main problem is its internal storage, which fills up so incredibly fast, even if all of your apps are on your SD card. I constantly get a message that there is not enough memory. I keep clearing my cache and it doesn't help.I put in an 8 GB microSD card but many apps cannot be loaded onto/transferred to the SD card.
Excerpt: After purchase of 7 days i found lots of issue like hang apps, crash apps, screen Display problem , and at last but most imp. HTC Callcenter . they will not understand ur problem only put u good copy paste mail and nothing. no one take ownership. if u want free and no work and good money. than u can purchase this cell .
Pros: Good Look
Cons: Crash apps, Low battery, No Help from HTC, hang problem
Summary: Got the phone. Seemed great then one day stopped working. I emailed the company and returned it to them, they kept it for weeks and said it was the battery but at the same time said it worked fine charging in the PC.....makes no sense. Anyway they refused to fix it or give me a refund and returned it. I tried in PC and guess what...nothing they lied to me. Customer service from Cash Converters is VERY BAD and even a little rude.
Summary: Yes, you can add external memory to your HTC Explorer, but its still totally useless. The internal memory is extremely low, most Apps can only be downloaded on internal memory, and after installing the second App, your phone is dead with false messages. Furthermore, most possibly due to the 'Always' short of memory problem, Apps go and come back occasionally. SD is working, but you cant find the Apps on it.
Summary: Not a very sensitive touch screen makes this quite frustrating to use. Very limited internal memory seriously restricts app usage even with an enormous micro SD card it was still lacking as it fails to utilise it. Very easy to delete all your data when it runs out of memory (which is daily), not very clear.
Summary: The HTC Explorer is not suitable for making phone calls. It may have other attributes, but making phone calls is not one of them. It is also not suitable for answering calls. The screen is useless in daylight. Scrolling thru contacts calls each one you touch. This could cost you.
