    Looks really good, but that name is horrible. Why couldn’t they have named it something else?

    The back panel reminds me a bit of the Meizu MX2.

    Andi, you are mistaken: “the Mars has a 16GB of ROM”.
    As the name “Read-Only-Memory” indicates, a only one time programmable ROM would be utterly useless as user storage medium. You either should it correctly call Flash-EEPROM, or by its common, less accurate street name Flash memory, but definitively not ROM.

      It doesn’t really matter, because in the smartphone world, almost everyone refers to it as ROM.

        Well, my understanding in respect to the smartphone world is so far, that “ROM” is the image file being used when upgrading or changing the currently used operating system by flashing it to NVM.

      Built-in memory is often called ROM by smartphone manufacturers
