ODROID-C2 is a promising revision on C1+ because it comes with a 2Gbyte DDR3, its MicroSD Slot is now compatible with up to 128GB SDR50 UHS-1, and the flash storage eMMC is compatible with up to 64GB HS400. ODROID-C2 features the Quad-Core Cortex-A53 @1.5GHz (ARMv8). The Graphics Processing Unit is Mali-450 (3x Vertex Shader / 3x Pixel). ODROID-C2 runs on 64-bit architecture. It is compatible with Ubuntu, Arch-Linux, Android, and Debian. If you are working on projects involving embedded controllers, wearables, and other small devices, then ODROID-C2 is a good choice because it is power efficient.

- If you are not using the USB OTG then it is better to remove the J1 jumper. This way you can save power and avoid heat generation to some extent.
- You can install the Operating System on ODROID-C1+ by either using an eMMC or MicroSD. But eMMC module is recommended for Operating System installation. MicroSD will take more time for installation and there are chances of missing some files.
