Now let us look in depth at its various technical specifications and decide on its pros and cons eventually.
This smartphone comes with a curved metal frame. This metallic frame holds the rest of the body which forms the core of this smartphone. It gives the smartphone a stylish and classy look.

The storage capacity of this smart is pretty average. It comes with an internal memory capacity of only 8 GB. This for sure will not be enough even for the basic users. But to compensate for this, this smartphone comes with the option of externally expanding the storage using a microSD card up to 256 GB. It has dedicated slot available for the microSD card. The RAM available in this smartphone might be 1 to 2 GB. This low RAM causes a considerable amount of lag if a lot of games are played or in case any heavy usage.
