Build quality & display

So it has been a long time when we have tested some flip phone. So when you for the first time hold the phone in your hands you will noticed that it is fatter than usual smartphone. But it is quite normal because it has two screens. So when you think about the screen then we can tell you that it has two screens.

Both screens are same size which is 4.2 inch, and they are IPS with resolution 1280 x 768 pixels. According to the company these are the same screens like on Blackberry. Where outer screen is touchscreen display while inside screen is not touchscreen display.

Therefore both screens provides good visibility from every angle, and at the same time HD resolution is good choice for 4.2 inch screen. Because it provides high sharpness including excellent color display. Overall we believe that you will be satisfied with the T2 Plus screen.

But besides that this smartphone is amazing because it provides premium feeling, and at the same time it is made from good quality materials. Actually it is unique smartphone because it has some elements which other smart phones does not have.

Therefore when we think about the build quality then we can say that the backside is made from genuine leather which is actually really cool. It looks really nice, and at the same time it feels nice under the hand. While other parts of the phone are made from plastic and metal.

Also like any other flip smartphone it has physical keyboard, which is not surprising. Actually some people today likes more physical keyboards than touchscreen. So in this way you have opportunity to use physical keyboard for text messaging, calling, or something else. But still if you want you can use touchscreen for web surfing, playing games or something else. Keys are enough big, and it is very easy to use the phone.

In other words you have possibility to choose what is more convenient for you. Therefore we are very pleasantly surprised with this flip phone because it looks really nice, and at the same time it provides good build quality.

Also don’t forget that the you can only turn on the phone with physical keyboard. Although it has power on off button on the side which you can use when the phone is already turned on, and you can turn off the phone with that button.
