To add to it, the camera can be converted in a potent LED flashlight. The phone has a built-in memory of 16 GB and with the MicroSD card, can be increased up to 4 times more.
There is a powerful 2600mAh battery and so can provide sustainable support to the user. Wi-Fi direct, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 are some of the connectivity options.
