Torque Ego One - with Battery

The EGO is powered by an outdated 1GHz single core processor with only 256MB RAM which is really low, they could just make it, at least, 512MB and for sure it will make a lot of improvement in terms of performance. For the storage, it only comes with 512MB so don’t expect to install apps that require a lot of storage space. You might not even have enough space to run the Facebook app on this phone, but you can always use an alternative like the lite version or the web version using opera mini.
