Display and navigational controls

The Mozart features a 3.7-inch WVGA display that's slightly smaller than some of its competitors', but it is sharp and bright. Below the screen you get the requisite Back, Start, and Search buttons.

Picture quality

Despite the 8-megapixel camera, we were disappointed with the picture quality. It was difficult to get a sharp image and colors were washed out.
