You might have noticed that the new X6 from NUU Mobile was just released. If you have, you might also have noticed that it comes with 3 gigabytes of RAM. But what does that really mean for you?

Put very simply, RAM (or random access memory) is the part of your phone where your apps go to play once they’ve been loaded up. As a type of memory, RAM is much faster than the memory where apps are permanently stored (referred to as storage, ROM, or in older, larger devices, a harddrive).

Modern smartphones, much like your laptop or computer, are capable of multitasking, and so having more RAM helps to let more of these apps run simultaneously without forcing any of them to sleep or close. More RAM is also helpful when you’ve got a particularly hefty app that demands more memory to operate within.

With all of that understood, how much RAM would be considered “good” for a smartphone? Our friends over at Android Authority have actually done a very in-depth look at RAM usage on smartphones here, if you’re so interested in going down that rabbit hole. But if you want the short version, this is it: most users will typically use up to 2GB (YouTube uses 0.23GB; Whatsapp uses 0.26GB; Candy Crush uses 0.38GB); and even heavy users of social media will typically use between 2-3GB (Twitter uses 0.4GB; Instagram uses 0.7GB). Only heavy gamers will breach 3GB, and that’s only when trying to load multiple apps into memory (Asphalt 9 uses 1.0GB; PUBG takes 1.1GB).

And here’s another way of looking at it: ask yourself how much RAM your laptop has. There’s a good chance it has just 4GB – just a bit more than the $99 X6 – and that laptop might be running Multiple tabs in Chrome, Word, Excel and Powerpoint all at once!

Arguably, 3GB of RAM is a sweet spot for most users, satisfying almost all kinds of app scenarios. Considering this, NUU Mobile’s X6 brings a remarkable amount of performance to the table at its $99 price point.

The newest addition to the NUU Mobile portfolio introduces an aggressive value proposition for under $100, available from January 28th.

DALLAS (Jan. 28, 2019) —NUU Mobile, a global manufacturer and supplier of carrier-certified and unlocked Android™ smartphones, unveiled its new X6 phone at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and has just announced its availability starting from today. Sporting a capable 3GB of RAM, an extended screen with a 5-megapixel front camera in a water drop-style notch, dual 13-megapixel/VGA sensors on the back, and stock Android Pie, the X6 retails for only $99.99.

“Our goal with the X6 was to bring a value proposition to the market that would stand out to those in search of a modern, capable, yet uncomplicated smartphone experience, in a market of ever-increasing prices for ever-decreasing increments in performance,” said Tim Clemens, Senior Vice President at NUU Mobile. “It’s not easy, but this has always been our stand in the industry, and our development goals for 2020 will follow this philosophy.”

In addition to the specifications above, the X6 will also bring with it a 2,800 mAh battery, Mediatek’s Helio-class A22 system-on-chip, and a choice of face unlock or fingerprint reading for a balance of convenience and security. Added value comes in the form of a now-uncommon 3.5” audio jack, an SD expansion slot, and a user-removable battery.

“With phones today venturing up into four-figure territory, we’re proud to be offering the X6 at less than a tenth of that,” added Matthew Smith, NUU Mobile’s Marketing Director. “Our new brand positioning, led by the #5to9ers campaign, explores the meaning of this; we recognize that many of us out there are working beyond the norm to be better, have greater needs for what we earn, but still demand satisfaction within reason.

Compatible with GSM, LTE and WCDMA networks on most major US carriers, the X6 is unlocked and available to purchase on Amazon and NUU Mobile’s website at

How to Use NFC on Your Android Oreo-Powered G3

Your NUU Mobile G3 comes equipped with a bunch of cool communication programs developed by Android. One of those apps lets you transfer data between phones just by bumping them together.

Called Near Field Communications (NFC), the technology lets your Android-equipped cellphone capture signals from another device that’s close by.

You can find NFC on Android-based phones, point-of-service terminals and special NFC-activated smart tags. Similar to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, the NFC wireless transfer application is a quick and efficient way to share information using your G3 smartphone. And with the G3’s recent upgrade to Android™ Oreo™, you can now do this faster than ever before!

Fast, secure and convenient NFC and Android Beam let you use your phone to:

With a simple swipe or tap, you can transfer money to another person’s bank account, accept payment from someone’s bank account, settle your purchase at the cash register or automatically switch your phone to work mode. Once you get used to using NFC, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Pay Bills, Swap Data Instantly on Your G3 with Android Beam

Google NFC uses Android Beam to wirelessly transfer payments between devices. By just holding your phone a couple inches from another active NFC device, you can send or receive information with just a tap.

Hold your device within two inches of another phone, or a cash register, and tap it to initiate payment. To receive payment, you just hold your phone near the phone of the person paying. An alert will flash on your screen to tell you the payment has been received.

Android Beam is the specific application within Google NFC that lets you:

Use Android Beam to exchange information between your phone and a point-of-sale device, such as the grocery store cash register. To use your phone to make pay bills and debts, download Google Pay from Google Play.

To activate Android Beam on your G3 smartphone, go to Settings>More and tap the NFC switch to turn on the program.

Use NFC Tags for Easy Settings Adjustments on Your G3 Smartphone

NFC smart tags are made of paper or plastic, with a sticky backing to make them adhere to surfaces. NFC tags contain a small memory chip, along with a radio chip and an antenna. An NFC tag draws power from the device used to read it.

The tag holds specific instructions that can be transmitted to your phone. The coding inside NFC tags ranges from complex to simple. Complex instructions feature encrypted mathematics, while simple tags use basic read-and-write technology.

To access the instructions on an NFC tag, just wave your Android phone within a couple inches of the tag. Tags can be used to authenticate and identify, or just to transmit basic information. Useful ways to employ NFC tags include:

To write NFC tags for yourself, you’ll need to download a tag-writing app, such as NFC TagWriter or NCF Tools from Google Play.

Take part in high-definition video calls on super-fast mobile networks using the inexpensive new NUU Mobile G1 smartphone.

The G1 operates on the latest high-speed mobile networks, called 4G LTE. The phone incorporates the latest high-speed video technology to eliminate the signal delays and screen jitters that used to be common on mobile chat.

When you blend a high-speed network with improved video technology, you get fast transmissions and crystal-clear reception. The audio on your G1 also benefits from the same technology, making it seem like you’re speaking with a person sitting right next to you.

The new G1 smartphone combines a slimmed-down operating system with a powerful battery to provide you with all-day connectivity at a bargain price. The recently introduced G1 features:

Take advantage of the latest technological advances in the mobile phone world with the new G1 smartphone, where you’re powered for life on the Go.

Inexpensive G1 Works on 4G LTE Mobile Networks, the Fastest Around

Don’t let the G1’s super-low price fool you. The new G1 smartphone incorporates the latest technology to provide you with everything you need in an unlocked smartphone.

Take network connectivity, for instance. The G1 is designed to operate on the fastest mobile networks available, 4G LTE.

Introduced in 2012, 4G LTE technology began gaining widespread U.S. acceptance just a few years ago. Now, even most networks in foreign countries use or are transitioning to 4G LTE networks. 4G LTE mobile-phone networks offer improved:

Don’t worry, the high-tech G1 works superbly on 3G and 2G networks too. The G1 also connects efficiently to GSM networks. Though you can still make video calls on 3G or GSM networks, the phone’s high-speed features are available only on high-speed networks.

New G1 Smartphone Employs Video over LTE (ViLTE) to Make Video Calls

High-priced phones with ViLTE capability began rolling out late last year. The new video technology appears in the Android Go version of the operating system that was released last year.

The G1 smartphone employs a slimmed-down version of Oreo, an operating system called Go. Go supports both VoLTE and ViLTE, which puts the G1 smartphone on the cutting edge of new transmission technology.

The program couldn’t be easier to use. Just click one of your contacts on the G1, and you’ll see an option for video chat. You also can activate chat through Phone and Android Messaging. Just tap the button to:

With a 5.7-inch screen that features 18:9 resolution, your video chats on the G1 will appear crystal clear. The signal is stabilized for easy viewing on both ends. You’ve never looked so good on video chat!

Speech on the G1 Sounds Great with Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Transmissions

ViLTE is based upon earlier technology for audio, called VoLTE. Two years after the first 4G LTE network was introduced, the first full-featured VoLTE network debuted in Singapore. U.S. mobile networks swiftly adopted the new protocol, which dramatically improved the quality of voice transmissions on LTE networks.

Using VoLTE, 4G LTE networks have more than three times the capacity of 3G networks. VoLTE signals are larger, which improves clarity, and they travel faster than ever before. The implementation of VoLTE technology on 4G LTE networks:

With the introduction of the G1 smartphone, you no longer need to sacrifice performance for price. The affordable G1 provides you with access to the latest technology, including high-speed video chat, on the fastest mobile networks in the world. At a great price.

A sleek new operating system opens up a world of possibilities

In the race for better, sleeker, faster smartphones, one segment of the market remains to be dominated: the low-cost, high-performing smartphone. The latest Android and Apple smartphones, in an effort to place mini computers in your pocket, require heavy software and sophisticated hardware. While the devices may get smaller and thinner, their inner workings continue to be bogged down by technology, which drives up the price.

Enter Android™ Oreo™ – Go Edition, affectionately referred to as Android Go. It’s the newest version of Android’s operating system and it truly is a game changer. Essentially, Android Go is a lighter version of Android’s popular Oreo 8.1 operating system. What do we mean by lighter?

What Android Go achieves is offering a new audience a chance to enter the smartphone market. When it comes to big brands like Samsung and Apple, their phones can cost the same as a month’s rent – sometimes more. That total can be hard enough to swallow in a country like the United States. But what about countries like India, where 500 million users are expected to go online for the first time in the next five years?

High cost products like those we’ve traditionally been forced to buy won’t make the cut, but on the flip side, smartphone manufacturers can’t risk cutting corners and sacrificing the user experience.

Android Go opened the door for far more cost-efficient smartphones, breaking the monopoly on the market and allowing far more people to enter the digital and Internet age. Phones that utilize Android Go make a great choice for first-time smartphone users or an aging population that may not need all the bells and whistles of traditional smartphones.

After all, it is a lighter OS. For those that are used to a Galaxy or iPhone and whom depend on their high performance, a phone with Android Go is likely not for you. But for those out there that find themselves with a phone capable of far more than they need, smartphones with the new Android Go system provide an alternative that is worth the low-cost investment.

Your new NUU Mobile G3 smartphone features cameras on both the front and the back of the phone. In all, your phone has three camera lenses – one in the front, two in the back. Learn how to use them and you’ll take photos like a pro.

The front camera is perfect for taking selfies and dialing up video chats. There’s a built-in LED selfie flash on the front of your G3 that works automatically when you snap a picture.

Use the dual cameras on the rear of the phone for taking spectacular still photographs. The second rear camera works in concert with the first to produce stunning special effects.

Your affordable G3 smartphone combines high-tech camera technology with a full suite of photo modes for taking professional-style photos. Select one of the five automatic modes, or switch to Professional mode to control all the aspects of your photography by hand.

Three Cameras to Work with on the Affordable G3 Smartphone

The front camera takes photos at 13 megapixels (MP). The industry standard for high-powered smartphones is typically 12 MP.

Choose Your Photo Mode: Multiple Software Filters Available on the G3

The G3’s Android operating system has multiple modes for shooting photos and video. Once you’ve taken your photo, the G3 provides you with editing tools to help you perfect the image.

To access your photo modes, just tap the camera icon. Here’s how to shoot still photos and videos, then edit them:

Still photography. You can take still photos in six different modes on the G3. Tap the camera icon, then hit Options to access:

Video photography.  To switch to video mode, tap the video-camera icon while in camera mode. You can shoot at 30 fps as the default, or slow the camera to 24 fps for a cinematic effect. Film video with the phone held horizontally for best results. The phone light remains on while you video. Like still photography, video is shot in 1080 resolution.

Photo editing. Even the best photos can need a little touch-up. Edit your G3 phots by clicking into Google Photos. Tap the pencil icon to add color-filter effects, or to rotate or crop the image. Your photos never looked so good!

NUU Mobile specializes in high-quality, budget-friendly smartphones that meet the demands of your life.
