Vernee is one of the few Chinese companies that has been able to supply a smartphone with a great hardware set up as well as a relatively cheap price tag to go along with it. Earlier this year the smartphone was highlighted as one of the many smartphones that were showcased at this year's MWC. What makes this device stand out from the crown is that apart from the Asus ZenFone AR, the Vernee Apollo 2 is the only smartphone with a massive 8GB ROM.
