It's difficult to see in a photo, but hold the phone right and the top and bottom screen edges slope slightly downward, another polished element.

With a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, this is no jumbo phone. The Prevail is therefore portable and pocketable.

The Prevail comes with 2GB memory to get you started, but holds up to 32GB in total. Considering it only has 124MB of internal memory, that's a good thing.
