Let’s talk about the design. Well, this phone doesn’t excel at this part, being a very simple one, the only interesting side is that it has a qwerty keyboard, making it easier for texting and chatting. It may come in several colors like Dark Grey, Mid Blue, Plum Red, White, Golden Light. The display is a 2.4 inches TFT, quite basic but does it’s job. The phone is quite right-sized at 115.2 x 58.9 x 13.5 mm with a 106g weight it fits well in the hand.

The 3.15 MP camera does it’s job and it’s suited for this price. It also captures VGA videos at 15 FPS.
