Then there’s the upgrade in terms of hardware, with the better Kirin 960 chipset, fast octa-core processor, great graphics and an option to go for 6GB RAM. It will cost slightly more money, but it will be worth it in the end.

Not only that, the dual 20MP+2MP selfie camera also comes with LED flash, so you know you can take selfies even under the cover of darkness.

Storage-wise, there’s an option to go for a really large 128GB of internal storage. Or you can just opt for 64GB, and expand it further with the microSD expansion slot.
