  1. What’s with people and latest processors? 801 is still a good processor! More than enough for this beast of a phone! Pricing is good too!

  2. Snapdragon 801 is bit old but its much more powerful then one used in today’s mid range phones such as YU plus, lenovo K3 note etc.

  3. Everything is excellent with the phone except the processor that is too old to consider yeah and one more thing the price.

  4. it is a nice configuration 801 is a old power house (and still a tough competitor to mtks ) and 4100mah is the key attraction
