    The operating system and shell

    Since our last communication with smartphones Prestigio, the manufacturer had to upgrade the OS to Android 4.0.4 to Android 4.1.1. Today the issue of smartphones earlier versions is considered bad form, so Prestigio decided to keep up with the next opponents and also switched to a new version of the popular operating system. In contrast to the first-tier manufacturers, models based on SoCMediaTek not have its shell and is used in virtually bare Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which you can read the review by clicking here.
