Chocolate brown

We like the Renown's color scheme. Yet, the external display is rather small and the glossy skin attracts smudges.

The Renown's navigation array and keypad have a easy-to-use design.

Take it out

Even with plastic skin, the Renown has a solid feel.

The Renown's camera lacks a flash and a self-portrait mirror.
