It has a powerful loudspeaker with 1W (watt) output that promises a clear sound. It has “focus mode” for teenagers that helps to ease their tension and improve concentration by playing relaxing therapy music without the disturbance of phone calls or notifications, since data and Wi-Fi are turned off. When you get a call it automatically rejects it by sending a message. It comes with LG G4’s Quad Beat 3 headset in the box.
