      I would say both are good for nothing. I have just got my blue A311 on 2nd june. I have heard about some heating problem but still i bought and now it heats so much that i have to keep it for sometime and then use it again. It heats when using wifi or playing game even for 5 mins. Other problems in A311 are:

      * Not upgradeable to lollipop.
      * You cannot hide apps.
      * Only sim 1 is 3G.
      * You cannot choose your home screen out of any no. of sliding screens.This means your hero in wallpaper will be on some other screen.

      There are not important to someone but heating is definitely a big problem , without flip cover you cannot be on call.it burns my ear. one thing about heating is that only the mobile upper part heats so you can hold it the whole day.

      E311 has cpu and battery less than A311 so i guess it has not much heating problem and others are same for both except both sim 3G.
