Why the Price Cut for 16 GB Model?
The price for the 16 GB model in particular are reduced because people are complaining of low internal storage availability and then are no chances that you can add micro SD card to the device. Out of 16 GB, user only gets 12 GB available for use as the it’s consumed by system resources. After app installation, and ever expanding size of WhatsApp, Facebook and other bulky apps, user is left with limited space.
