The phone is nearly identical to the Samsung Galaxy S4, just thicker. Officially, the phone measures 5.4 inches tall, 2.7 inches wide, and 0.4 inch deep. It weighs 5.6 ounces, which makes it feel hefty and solid in my hands.

It has a slightly curved, rounded body and a slick, matte back cover, and it comes in two colors: black and white.

There's an 8-megapixel main camera on the back of the phone, which protrudes slightly above the back cover. There's also an LED flash right below the lens. Overall, it takes decent, but not great, photos.

The power button is up top, and is built into the back cover. Next to that is the headphone jack. One the bottom, there is a Micro-USB port for charging.

Though it looks as though the Black Pearl is running a vanilla version of Android Jelly Bean 4.2, there are a few modifications, including settings to swap between each SIM, if you have two installed.
