The memory configuration in 3/4/6 GB for RAM and 32/64 GB for ROM, with a dedicated micro SDXC card slot, capable of expanding the memory by an extra 1T. This is a lot of decent power, capable of mid-range performance. There is hardly any task one can through at such an SoC set up and get disappointed, even if it’s a graphics-intensive gaming experience.

That makes it a great budget device for media consumption and general extended use.

It has been redesigned and optimized, making it lighter, faster, and more interactive. It has less bloatware, feeling less invasive but the extra apps integrated into the UI are most productive, making the experience even more enjoyable, even recommendable.

With a decent battery, a quad-camera set up and the well-optimized chipset balances out the various budget components into quite an attractive device, especially in this particular price segment.
