What the above means is that, if you want the phone to last longer you’ll need to provide some screen guard to help protect the screen and display. Also, using a phone jacket or case is highly recommended given it has a plastic back and frame. A phone jacket will help protect the plastic from breaking easily.
Chipset, RAM and Internal Storage
The phone uses the UniSoC Spreadtrum SC7731E (32 nm) which is a low performing SOC. It also uses the Quad core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and ARM Mali T820 MP1 GPU for image and games processing. This phone is not meant to play heavy games and/or process heavy graphics.
So far, the phone comes in a single variant of, 1GB RAM and 16GB Internal Storage. There is space for microSD card up to 32GB which makes it even more interesting.
To be fair, given its price you should not expect much performance from this phone. It can only play those low games and process at most 3 Apps at a time. So, we won’t advice you to use this phone for heavy tasks.
