The 512 MB of RAM may cause some hindrance as far as performance is concerned, but since it has smaller screen pixel dimensions it may offset this disadvantage.For the price tag at Rs 6,490, a device looks expensive specially for a single-core smartphone these days. For a few hundred rupees more, you can get the dual-core processing device and that too with a larger 4″ screen.
