The build quality is okay despite the low price. It has thin back cover which is a bit slippery. Other than that, it’s all good.
The Studio 5.0 C HD, meanwhile, provides you 1gb of RAM, a bigger display, and a bigger camera for just an additional $30. It has a vibrant display and a smooth performance. Similar to the C Mini, it also has a think back that is slippery, but it is still a solid device and is offered on different colors: black, white, pink, orange, and teal.
The two devices both exceed user’s expectations. It’s pleasant to use and does not give you headaches. For a cheap device, it provides exceptional performance.
