This means that all of your apps and other graphics will look clean and clear. With the larger display you’ll be able to easy see any documents you may be perusing whether they’re a photograph from a friend, a work contract, or your favorite website.
The phone, while larger is still fairly lightweight at 184 grams and features both a front and a rear facing camera so that you can photograph all of your adventures. The front camera is decent at 2 mp but the rear camera will take much better photos with 13 mp and comes complete with optical image stabilization to cut down on blur from slight movement.
