A mix of plastic and metal, the Pixelphone S1 is a beauty to behold no doubt. The back is smooth and comfortable to hold and flaunt, while the dual antenna lines makes the phone look more stunning. The rear camera is at the top middle starting a vertical train, with the LED flash underneath then the fingerprint scanner comes close.

There’s also a speaker at the bottom corner for loud music. It isn’t as slim as you may think, even though it comes with a low battery capacity. It measures 8.5 mm to the sides and weighs 165g, it’s available in only Gold and Black colors as well. The 4G LTE compatible device supports dual nano sims, the sim slot 2 also serves as the microSD slot.

Well its bezel-less to the sides but not entirely. The top and bottom corner still have much annoying bezels. The top bezels can be forgiven because it houses the selfie camera, but the bottom bezel is pretty vacant and shouldn’t be there. Anyways, lets focus on the screen now, shall we?
