First impression

The very first thing which I noticed as soon as I held the phone on my hand is the weight.  The device weighs 200 grams, Initially I felt it was bit heavy, gradually i got used to it.  There is a power saving application which is built-in to the phone, It helps  extend the phone’s battery life by turning off the battery-intensive processes like Wi-fi and Bluetooth, also by dimming the screen. A dedicated switch is present at the right side of phone called as “Power-saving switch”, with a toggle you can save the phone’s battery consumption. Of course if you run out of battery you can also have a portable solar generator with lithium battery so you can charge the phone or any other electric device.
