Memory, storage

512 MB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. More RAM lets us keep more apps and processes open in the background. This keeps the device from slowing down. If we use our smartphones for basic tasks like calling, texting, and browsing the web, 32 GB may be sufficient for our needs. We can expand the internal storage of the Pocket (4 GB) by using a compatible microSD card.
