Due to the size of the smartphone, people with small hand would require both of them for the proper operation of this product. Power and volume buttons are located on the right size and the headphone jack, the speaker, the microphone hold and the micro-USB hole are placed at the bottom.
Performing under a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor at 2.2GHz, the device works on Android 7.1. These settings are not for a highest level smartphone, but rather for the mid-range category.

The front camera is equally at 12MP, ideal for good quality self-portraits. The primary camera provides the feature of taking photos in low light conditions with good quality, clearer and noiseless, thanks to the DCP chip included in the camera tool.
As for battery life, the 3245mAh battery included in the product would be enough for the average performance of it; but the size of the device demands a bigger battery in terms of capacity.
