512MB ram in budget phones (Android) are to avoid the countless, pointless development costs after Jelly Bean made cheap handsets run sub-par.
JohnNy L, 26 Dec 2015Do people still buy LG phones??Yes... Yes they do
An entry level handset, in any case, isn't going to shake the foundations of anything if it's below fifty dollars. The Zone series (L34C Included) has respectable build quality and features Gorilla Glass...
