Thick, but nice

Although the phone is a bit on the thicker side, it fits well in the hand, feels good on the ear, and is small enough to fit into a looser pocket.

Camera action

There's no flash or front-facing camera with the Valiant, but the biggest issue is its fixed-focus shooter. It does have panorama mode and a few filters, and colors are attractive and bright.
