As for its look, the F70 is stamped from the same mold as the new L series of phones, with rounded corners, a physical home button below the screen, and a lightly textured backing that strangely feels a little unpleasantly rough under the fingertips. The white model we saw was attractive-enough, and fit fine in the hand.
