If we look at the build and design, it is not much lighter (137 grams), but looks smaller. It comes with softer colors, including white that makes it famous in female buyers, and it does not have a changeable battery because of the unibody casing. Overall, the first impression of the phone is impressing.
The display gives extra sharp imaging, exceptional contrast and a pleasurable touch screen. Processor can perform all the tasks very smoothly with a kind of elegance that shows the power behind the device.
