At First glance as you can see from the images , I think the smartphone has great design and you can see the generic Android UI is nicely customized. According to me the Highlight features of the Mobile are ‘Mirasol’ display which doesn’t need backlighting to display text or images and this makes it energy-efficient. Another Feature I believe which draw users attention is solar Charging.
