The phone is super sleek.
It's different from the Smart 3 plus having a lower RAM of 1GB and 16GB ROM. Runs on Android 9Pie with XOS skin 4.6 on it. No lagging so far on the quad core 2.0 GHz processor. But the best experience yet is the camera. I have only had the phone since Monday, 29April 2019.
