Previous appeared on MWC 2015, today we finally have a chance to grab this on our hands! One of the unique design features is that both edge of the smartphone are equipped with front speakers, which means that you can answer on any side of your smartphone even if you use it in reverse.

Although it features the similar circular design as seen on the Motorola 360, a black bezel was found in the bottom which could be slightly annoying! The whole user experience is fluid which is acceptable in any level.
