Front of this device have 4″ LCD Screen, however this is unexpected that Sony didn’t launch SONY mobile Bravia Engine, edges surrounded by relatively big bezels (especially top and bottom, considering there are no physical buttons). Even this smartphone is not too big like Sony Xperia Z.
The back have slightly curved surface including round edges, and hard plastic back that wraps around the sides of the body giving it a unibody look, another plus advantage is that the back cover seems very soft to touch but hard to break so in this way this provides much protection to the phone when it falls.
