I find this widget amusing as heck!
If you press the middle button of the widget, the photo of the DSLR camera will turn into a viewfinder. Clicking it again will take a pic!
Clicking the left camera button will return the widget back into a photo of a DSLR camera.
Recently taken photos will be displayed at the bottom like so. Photos taken with this widget will have a timestamp at the bottom with a '

Clicking the photo will bring up 2 options, share and delete.
(I'll try to update this section when I get a hold of my dad's phone again.) I thought this folder would contain camera apps like
or Camera 360. But it's actually customization apps. The Theme app offers 4 free themes that have different icon sets. All the wallpapers used by the themes are available in the Wallpapers gallery. BeautyPlus

Dad doesn't really listen to music so there's nothing to be displayed here. I'll try to update this section too if I can.
Basic Note app. If you want something that's cross device/platform and has sync, I suggest using Evernote or Google Keep instead.
The LED flash will not disappoint. It's BRIGHT!
I didn't realize I wasn't able to capture what the actual UI looked like. I'll try to upload pics of that too.

Long pressing on an app makes this menu (Remove from list and App info) pop-up.
I'm still looking for the customization option for the

+ Snappy UI
My sister had a few minutes to tinker with the phone. When I told her it was running on a 512MB RAM she was surprised. It was snappy enough for her. Her phone is an Asus Zenfone 4 running on Lollipop. I noticed this too. It might take a second to open apps like the Camera and the Opera Mini, but overall I didn't feel like I was on a 512MB RAM device! I opened almost all the apps (except for Facebook, Twitter and Viber) and took screenshots. I didn't need to clear RAM at all! I only had

+ Smart wake feature
Smart wake feature is fun to use once you familiarize yourself with the shortcuts. When I use the Double-click to bright screen (double tap to wake) it takes a second before the screen wakes.
