The top edge of the mobile made of plastic has a 3.5mm jack pin allowance, which puts emphasis on the handset’s own minimalist design.
The jack pin allowance yet comes off as a gaping hole that will be potentially an unofficial shop for lint from an user’s pocket.

The handset is a good deal for users looking to get an affordable device with flagship attributes. There is barely little to bemoan when it comes to attributes and functionality as the the apparatus is a proven performer functioning economically to rival other high end brands.
