Even when you view the phone under the sunlight, you will be able to see the display clearly from all angles. The light sensor adjusts the bright of the screen automatically.

The QWERTY keyboard present on the phone is also similar to the one on BlackBerry Tour. The backlight present on the keypad is not bright. Hence, you may feel that the keypad is not well illuminated in the dark. Instead of the trackball, you can find the trackpad which is very user-friendly.

On the left side, you can find the left convenience key, microUSB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. On the right side, the volume rocker is present with the right convenience key. On the top side of the phone, you can find the Mute and Lock feature. Flipping the phone to its back will reveal 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash. Between the camera lens and the flash, you can find the loudspeaker grill.
