Freetel ICE 2 has a 4-inch display. It is powered by a quad-core 1.1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. That is a low-end configuration, but it is better than what you get from most other smartphones in its price bracket. The question is, How does it perform in everyday use? Read on for our Freetel ICE 2 performance review and benchmark tests results.
Freetel ICE 2 Performance Review
Using the ICE 2 for everyday tasks is mostly fine, thanks to the OS being as close to pure Android as possible. In terms of speed of operation, it is fair game. We ran into trouble with heavier tasks and with multi-tasking though. In addition, downloading apps from Google Play is often tough going. We suspect that is a result of the low processing power.
Clearly, the ICE 2’s hardware is below the requirements of the cutting edge GTWorld mobile app. We would have been surprised if the outcome had been different. The regular GTBank mobile app installs and works without issues though.
Freetel ICE 2 Benchmark Tests
If you are interested in performance benchmark test cores, we are here for you. We threw AnTutu, Quadrant and Geekbench at the ICE 2 and got the following results:

Freetel ICE 2 Performance Review: Conclusions
If you are not new to smartphones and had checked the Freetel ICE 2’s specifications before now, this performance review probably doesn’t tell you anything surprising. If you have been used to using smartphones above this grade, you will find the Freetel ICE 2’s performance underwhelming.
This is a budget smartphone targeted at users at the very bottom of the pyramid. It is great for people who are coming from feature phones to smartphones for the first time.
