One of the many innovations introduced by Android 6.0 Marshmallow,
is the opportunity to use an external microSD card as Internal Storage.
In order to benefit for this ability, make sure you have a high-speed microSD card :

In order to gain access to Engineer Mode, please type the next sequence on Dialer :



Despite the rear of phone is made up of plastic material,
you might think at first sight that it is metal frame.
Like I said before, the pinkish gold looks really good.
The geometric patterns are rather reminiscent of a tile floor.
The shininess & particulars that emerges out of these geometric patterns,
vary according to the inclination & daylight.
The structure of the phone seems pretty solid.
There is no sign of loose spots;
and it got me thinking that the phone has unremovable battery.
Despite the few RAM, the OS is unbelievably quick.
The battery consumption is better than in other devices.
Display & Sound : The view of the display seems clear from every angles.
The speaker sounds goods.
Just out of curiosity, in Audio (EngineerMode -Hardware Testing),
the max volume in Normal Mode is set to 128,
in Headset Mode is set to 136,
in Loudspeaker Mode is set to 120,
in Headset_LoudSpeaker Mode the max speaker Volume is set to 160.
To test colors/contrast of display and volume/quality of the speaker,
I used the next videoclip on YouTube :

"Katy Perry - Dark Horse (Official) ft. Juicy J" VEVO Wink

The sharpness of the details, all the colors and contrast of the videoclip are seductive.
The quality of sound (at max volume - without headphones) is like the siren song.
When you listen music without headphones,
I suggest you to do not lay the phone on the table.
