The smartphone includes a 5.0-inch LCD touch screen and 8GB of internal storage, with up to 32GB of extendable storage available. The phone contains both 5 megapixel sensors, as the name implies, which means that both cameras support 5 megapixel sensors. The gadget is powered by a 2000mAh battery, and the phone lacks most sensors save for an accelerometer. The design is average, and despite being an ancient gadget, it supports 3G networks.
