This new version also focuses on offering a smartphone capable of manage basic operations at an extremely low price. The display IPS LCD gives 6,51″ it is only HD+, but this will benefit autonomy. In addition, its size will still allow an easy use of multiple applications simultaneously in split screen mode. The SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 has low energy consumption, but together with 3GB of memory RAM it won’t work miracles in terms of performance if there are too many applications running in the background. Furthermore, i 32GB of memory ROM for data archiving, it will run out quickly enough, thus forcing you to enter one MicroSD.

The photographic sector should ensure shots of sufficient quality thanks to the main sensor from 13MP. Always remember that it is an entry level, so it is not plausible to expect photo quality comparable to that offered by medium or top range devices. Regarding connectivity, this smartphone it will not support 5G networksbut the line 4G LTE it will still be valid in terms of download / upload speed of your files or during video calls. In terms of autonomy, the huge battery from 5000mAh should offer at least one couple of days of use. The long-lasting duration is due both to the large battery capacity and to the combination of low energy-consuming SoC and HD + only panel. Sure, if a panel was implemented YOU ARE consumption would have been further reduced but for just over 100€ you absolutely cannot expect more.
