    The specs are good enough. I prefer those with bigger screen size to be able to read my e-books well. The question is, how long will the battery last?? That has always been the downside of smartphones. Power banks are okay but if you are always on the go and do not have any bags with you, it would be a little inconvenient when your phone battery is almost at its limit.
