The CPU is backed by 2GB of RAM. You can easily run several apps on this phone without any issues. Switching between applications will not cause a headache.
When you compare this phone’s performance profile and that of its predecessor, it is a little disappointing that there are no major improvements.
The Hot 5 handset provides 16GB internal storage. This pretty much becoming the standard in most phones below KSh. 15,000. A microSD slot that supports cards of up to 32GB is available. This means you can use a memory card if you need more storage space.
