Besides battery, this phone is equipped with a variety of gesture driven features that makes it user friendly. For instance, the user may double tap the screen to wake up from sleep mode, the user may draw certain letters on the display in sleep mode and link these with one of the various tasks within the device. For example, the user may just draw “C” to open up camera application, draw “M” for music application so on and so forth. All these are customizable and the user can set these up based on his choice.
