Upon looking at the image of this handset, it reminds me of older plastic entry-level smartphone designs in the past, but it has decent specs to boast. It's equipped with a sharp enough 5 inch HD IPS screen, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB expandable internal storage, 8 MP main camera, 5 MP selfie camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, dual SIM slots, and loads with Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out of the box.
