  1. This phone is good for an Android phone. But with Adoptable storage locked by the manufacturer internal storage is used quickly by apps. Inserting any size sd card doesn’t help. It only allows storage of documents, pictures, video, ebooks outside of internal storage. My Ascend is locked to AT&T. So is my Windows Phone. The Windows phone can store all user apps on an sd card. But Windows phone are almost zombied.
