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 Pop 2 Power has only 16 GB of internal storage.
