Memory for QMobile Noir W20:
Noir W20 comes with 512 MB RAM and 4GB ROM, but only 1.2 GB space is available for storage. However Noir W20 has microSD card slot that supports upto 32GB micro-SD card.

Processor of QMobile Noir W20:
The QMobile Noir W20 embeds MediaTek MT6580M chipset on board. The Quad-core Processor runs at 1.3 GHz clocked speed. But let me come this into knowledge that due to less MBs in RAM, the processor won’t be able to run at its optimal point. You can run only 1 Application at same time otherwise it will frequently halts during the execution of instructions.
QMobile Noir W20 is an entry level smartphone with small specification sheet. it is available at very affordable price of PKR. 5250/- in Pakistan. Normally the international brands like Samsung’s entry level smartphones are expensive and almost the double the price of QMobile. i would suggest the device for youngster and specially for those who wants to keep in touch on social media but they usual can’t manage money to buy it. QMobile Noir W20 should be first choice for those.
