A waterproof switch at the side sets the smartphone to silent mode, so that users can react quickly to their environment. 2.5D tempered glass at the front and at the back assure a pleasant haptic, enabling the device to be nicely held in the hand. The 69 mm wide, 5” liquid crystal display is water- and dust-repelling and enables easy, one-handed operation.
