Even though this device carries 5.7-inch display, it is quite easy to hold in one hand. This is primarily because this smartphone is extremely slim – less than 7 mm to be precise. And even in this thinness – the smartphone comes packed with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a substantial 4,000mAh battery.
