Design

The Mesmerize's design largely resembles that of the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon Wireless. It's slim and lightweight and boasts a gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen.

Left side

On the left spine, there is a volume rocker, while there is a power/lock button on the right side. We would have liked to have seen a dedicated camera button thrown in there as well.
