Let me introduce this great and affordable Android smartphone called Soap R11 which features 5.7 inch HD display, 4G LTE network 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, dual Sim and 13MP + 16MP front and rear camera.
Soap R11 phone is powered with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system along with Octa-Core 4x1.4GHz Cortex processor. The phone also has a 3000 mAh non-removable battery and as well features a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. You are not alone if the brand name "Sugar Soap" sounds strange to you because I felt the same way when I saw the phone.
However, they are surely new in the Nigerian market but that doesn't make it a bad smartphone. All the popular smartphone brands you know today started from somewhere. I was moved to review this phone when I saw the price with the amazing features the phone offers.

Looking at the design the phone looks great but doesn't have any special design like notch display as we see in most modern phones. There is nothing to be worried about in terms of visual quality.
Operating System & Processor
The new R11 does not come with the latest Android operating system but equipped with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Android OS is already at the 11th version but with the Android 7 you still have access to downloads hundreds of apps and games from Google play store.
To enure optimum performance, the phone is clocked with Octa-Core 4x1.4GHz Cortex processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 MSM8937 chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 505 graphic processor. You have nothing to be worried about Soap R11 in terms of performance.
The phone has 3GB random access memory (RAM) big enough to give the phone the power it requires to handle it daily task. With big RAM you can run multiple apps or games at the same time without the phone hanging.
When it comes to storage memory, Soap R11 offers 32GB internal storage memory big enough to house all your favorite apps, games and media files such as videos and music. However, if you think that 32GB is too small for you then you can expand it up to 128GB using micro-SD card.
Despite the cheap price of Soap R11 smartphone, it offers a high-quality 16MP front camera and 13M rear camera capable to deliver brighter, colorful images and videos. This phone has all the special features you need to bring out the real beauty in you. With the new R11 smartphone you are ready to capture that special moment that matters to you
The onboard 3000 mAh is not as big as those smartphone with 5000 - 6000 but strong enough to keep you connected for a long time. However, the battery is non-removable which means that you will not be able to use more than 1 battery as you can easily do on a smartphone with removable battery.
