Photos are your start screen

Facebook messages become your start screen. If you don't like Facebook Home, you can disable it completely and use the First as a stock Android phone.

Sealed off

With the exception of openings for the headset jack, Micro-USB charging port, and SIM card slot, the First is all sealed up. That means there's no microSD card slot or removable battery.

A soft touch

Luckily, it's coated with a soft-touch finish that makes the First comfortable to hold.

Camera business

The First's 5-megapixel camera takes some pretty good shots for its resolution, and also captures 1080p HD video. Nice!
