The screen shows a large clock wallpaper which allows the user to check to time easily when the handset is not in use. The keypad comes with well spaced out keys & the keypad is dust resistant which prevents damage to the keypad. The user will find the one touch shortcut key a pleasure to use which allows the user to gain quick access to features including text messages, calendar feature, contacts details, loudspeaker & flashlight.
