An appealing feature of the K4 Note is the two speakers from Dolby that are built into the front to provide an optimal listening experience. The phone comes with a 16GB storage capacity that can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. Lastly the 3300mAh battery provides a battery life of a whole day, which is a very useful feature.
