A thick profile

When closed, the device measures 4.02 inches tall and 2.09 inches wide. At nearly an inch thick (0.91 inch to be exact), it will be a snug fit inside small front pockets on jeans.

Smiling for the camera

The 3.2-megapixel camera takes decent pictures and its flash can continuously stay on (even when the phone is closed) to function as a flashlight.
