In terms of box contents, the phone ships with very basic accessories. You won’t find much else than the microUSB charger as well as the earbud style earphones. The company has also decided to forego the user manual it seems. Worth noting is that the packaging is right in line with the patriotic spiel of the company and is appointed in colors of the flag. The back shows the specifications.

The phone itself has a 4inch display with a qHD IPS panel. The viewing angles are quite terrible and there is a massive color shift the moment you look at the device from anywhere but straight ahead. Three capacitive buttons are placed at the bottom. Over on the right is the power button while the left has the volume rocker.
