Petite design

The Pixi Plus has a design that fits its name. The smartphone is compact and lightweight at 4.37 inches tall by 2.17 inches wide by 0.43 inch thick and 3.26 ounces.

Keyboard

One of the trade-offs of having a smaller design is that the keyboard is a bit cramped. With some time, we found that we could type on the Pixi's keyboard comfortably, but users with larger thumbs should definitely take it out for a test drive.

Picture quality

Though photos came out mostly clear, we found that indoor shots had a bit of a grayish tone, giving the images a dreary look.
