Its screen and imaging capabilities are pretty standard for a phone in its price range but what makes THL W200s truly special are its powerhouse internal specifications. The device runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system sans custom skin with its True Octa Core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex A7 and Mali 450 based MediaTek MT6592 chipset, handles multitasking with 1 GB of RAM and has a whopping 32 GB of internal storage that's even expandable via microSD card slot supporting up to 64 GB.

The combination of these innards give THL W200s an Antutu Benchmark Score of 26,446 supposedly putting it in between far more expensive 2013 flagship releases Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One in terms of overall performance.
