On the back, the camera and fingerprint module are situated which are placed at a place which is easily accessible when you hold the device. We had no problem unlocking the device from fingerprint module. The sides of the phone have curved edge which is really great. The glass back and finish overall look great but the device feels a bit slippery which makes it prone to damages as well. Better have a hard case or at least a simple case to just make it less slippery. The only flaw in the design. On the front, there are touch capacitive buttons which are not backlit.

The speaker is able to produce amazing sound with no distortion even at full volume. Also, if you are unable to listen on full volume then the outdoor mode is just right for which increases the sound above full volume.
