512 MB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Having more RAM alone does not guarantee better performance. 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 A1 (8 GB) by using a compatible microSD card.
