The handset is still boasting a plastic frame, however is extremely durable and feels like metal thanks to the metal paint coating even though its not.

Lenovo branding is apparent, shown off on the box and each time you turn on the handset. The back features a 16 MP camera with a snappy auto-focus assisted with the laser focus and phase detection Auto-focusing. The camera also has a pro mode which like pro modes from many other manufacturers gives you great detail of control over your setting before you begin to capture a photograph.
