The Dream D1 is powered by 1.2GHZ Quadcore processor integrated with 1GB ram . We didn’t find any noticeable lag while testing the device . The device is lag free . Out of 1GB ram 570mb ram is free . Gionee did minor customizations to make the device more approachable . Although the device is snappy & robust . The app launcher Gionee used in D1 is heavy because of that the benchmark scores do not proceed more than ” 4012 ” (in our test ) . Gaming on the device is also fairly smooth and there in lag while playing high graphic games . Overall the device is fast . The video payback on the device is very smooth .
