    The 816 runs Sense 6.0… It’s fast and smooth however, because of KitKat’s security features, adding and moving content on the external card is difficult. 8gb of internal memory only really offers 4gb available to the user. This is not enough. Even with moving all apps to the card I’ve only got 1.25 gb if ram left to download content. I will never buy another phone with such little memory. This thing was only $179 so I’m not worried about replacing it, trouble is its the best “sounding” phone Virgin Mobile offers because of it’s BoomSound speakers.
