It is free from hazardous materials like PVC and it also comes with this eco-friendly packaging along with an Energy star charger. On the front of the phone is a nice 2.4 inch QVG display. It's very nice and colorful. At the bottom row of the display is Sprint's one click interface which provides quick access to applications like Facebook, Twitter and Google. Underneath the display is the navigation array which consists of two soft keys, a square toggle, the send key, the end/power key, as well as the speaker phone key and the back key.
