On front and slightly off center is Surge's 2.4-inch QVGA display. It shows 16 million colors at a 320x240-pixel resolution, and while it's clear and bright enough, it's definitely not as sharp or vibrant as some of the recent smartphones we've seen. The built-in accelerometer, however, is quite responsive.
The Surge measures 3.8 inches tall by 2.2 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick and 4.3 ounces, so it's pretty easy to slip into a pants pocket. However, we weren't so fond of the plasticky and slick feel of the phone.
Surrounding the display are a handful of navigation controls and shortcuts. To the right (when the phone is held horizontally), you have the standard soft keys, Talk and End buttons, and a four-way directional keypad with a center select button, and below, there are shortcut buttons to the browser, main menu page, and messages.
