We like a roomy keyboard on our phones, and the Evergreen provides one that's spacious without being uncomfortably wide. The keys are nice and responsive.

Soft keys

We also like the natural placement of the tall soft keys while in landscape mode.

The Evergreen's black body is on the plasticky side, which gives it a less-than-premium feel.

Convenience key

The Evergreen has an interesting convenience key on the other side of the camera shutter button. Press it to cycle through and launch a selection of apps.
