Still pocketable and comfortable

As the biggest member of the L-series family, the L90 features larger measurements while remaining pocketable and easy to hold. It is 5.18 inches tall, 2.60 inches wide, and 0.38 inch thick.

Scratch-resistant back side

The handset's battery door here is coated with a special “self-healing” material that we saw previously on the G Flex. The slick coating is meant to protect the handset from minor scratches and scruffs.

Decent 4.7-inch screen

The 4.7-inch qHD touchscreen has a 960x540-pixel resolution. Despite the display's low resolution, the screen is still bright and vivid, and is easily viewable in direct sunlight.
