It’s back isn’t smooth because it has some textures on it and that will make it stay on your hand without sliping off. The edges are curved and that will make it easier to fit in your pocket. Looking at the right side, there is a volume button which is a bit separated from each other.

No AMOLED here, it uses an IPS LCD panel with a 403ppi density for amazing color reproduction. Media consumers will so much love this phone because of that full view display. Even without an AMOLED screen, the Full HD+ resolution is something to be proud of.
