But the main difference in the smartphone. Its hardware is completely identical, the main difference lies in the localization, or rather, in his translation of the names of some pre-installed applications and folders are not translated. The so-called "top menu" is not translated, there is something here in the settings pop up not translated items and English text throughout is adjacent to the Russian or Ukrainian language throughout the interface. Moreover, the localization concerns not only the separate language, but any other. Of course, in certified phones designed for the global market, the translation is performed efficiently at 100%.
