    I just bough mine (hot 6, 2GB RAM) The battery is very good and d camera quite superb. Also, it charges fast, like an hour and some minutes to full. But then it doesnt show the apps i transfer when i check them in my FILE MANAGER. Once i delete any app i transfer, i can reinstall from the file manager.
