Easy to use

Using the thermal imaging camera is as easy as using the regular 13-megapixel one on the rear.

You simply open the FLIR camera app, preloaded and located on the home screen, and snap away.

Thoughtful details

The power button has a rigid texture to easily distinguish it from other buttons.

The yellow button is a programmable that can perform custom functions.
