    We got this phone and based on the specs of this phone, it seems descent but having 1gig RAM for a quad-core plus the OS Nougat is quite a bit questionable. So we test it by having just the FB and Messenger app installed. It was fine and smooth and very responding but the longer the app is running the slower the phone respond. So we’ve check whether there might some update and luckily there are some and the latest was v12. So we updated the phone and all and it seems back normal but didn’t last long. So overall the 1gig RAM this phone has is really not enough with how heavy the OS and the the system apps of this phone. I hope they at least make it 1.5gig at least or 2 is better.

    Okay naman kahit 1GB ram eh. Quad core naman ??sulit parin. Tska puro fb at social media lang naman tayo so kakayanin niya yan. Tska kung games pag uusapan okay parin hindi ma lag hindi rin nag cracrash depende nalang siguro sa game yan.
