This much amount of internal storage is hard to find on devices in this price range. Q455 also supports USB OTG functionality. I had no difficulty transferring data from phone to pen drive and the reverse using a 32GB sony pen drive formatted with FAT32.
Celkon Q455 comes pre-installed with a number of apps including Truecaller. Most of these apps can be disable but cannot be uninstalled. Celkon should allow for their removal to clear up space and RAM.

I was able to play most games without any lag like Temple Run 2, Smash Hit, Angry Birds but the device showed lag on high-end games like Asphalt 8.
Celkon Q455 comes with Proximity, Light and G sensors. The light sensor is quick in action.
Q455 is fueled by a 2000mAh battery. Celkon claims 8 hours of talktime on this phone. I was able to get through the day with moderate usage on single SIM.
At this price point, Celkon Q455 offers much more internal storage (16GB vs 4GB on others). The thin design and light weight make this device easy to handle and operate even though it is longer than other phones with the same screen size.
