The company "Electronic systems" Alcatel"decided to develop such a direction as smartphones with large screens, and released a gadget TeXet TM -5204. The novelty, like the predecessor TM-5200, supports the operation of two SIM cards in active mode, but has a more powerful "filling" and current software.
Design TeXet TM-5204 is not much different from its predecessor - classic monoblock. The front surface occupies the display under which there are four touch control buttons, and above it is a front camera and speaker. On the back of the chamber, LED flash and logo.
The hull is made of black plastic, and the back cover has a Soft Touch coating that prevents the appearance of fingerprints and protects against small scratches.
The device assembly is made quite well: there are no screens when working and the backlash.
The size of the device - 144x80x12 mm, and weighs the gadget is quite decent - 213 grams, but it contributes, of course, a 5.25-inch display and a sufficiently capacious battery.
Supplies: smartphone, rechargeable battery, USB cable, headphones, network adapter.
