      It has memory card slot which support 32GB.
      Its qualacomm snapdragon 400 1.19 GHZ Quad core Arm v 7 with responsive touch and fluid interface. Adreno 305 on 400 mhz .Overall experience is very good.

      Tried many root apps not successfull yet. My plan is to run cyanogenmod in coming days or at least xposed framework.

      Good backup phone for travel purpose.
