  1. spec sheets seems unbalanced
    LTE & a 300+ppi display are great but 1/8 GB RAM/ROM & 2100 mAh battery are disappointing not a bad device for $140 though

  2. Windows phone are less reliant on the specs sheet for performance than Androids,though the presence of a 2100mAh battery isn’t exactly encouraging real life usage would be the best judge of the current state of Windows optimization..

  3. yes, but that wasn’t what I was talking about
    I’m saying the spec sheet isn’t the normal fare for a budget device. 300+ ppi displays and LTE are usually seen in midrange devices. 1/8 GB combo is entry level stuff. i guess it evens out

  4. This is definitely the baby of the house in the windows 10 family.

    Specs sheet looks unbalanced but very fair for the range.
