Memory card slotmicroSD

1 GB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. If you primarily use your smartphone for basic tasks like calling, texting, and browsing the web, 32GB may be sufficient for your needs. The Dash L4 LTE has only 8 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the Dash L4 LTE (8 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
