The 3.5mm audio jack and the micro USB port are both located on the top while at the bottom you will see the microphone pin hole and the slit for opening/removing the back cover.

If you read either my Glimpse or Glimpse 3G review, you already know that they resembles, if the not the same design. Actually, I think they are actually identical in the outside.


DISPLAY:

The touchscreen display supports only 2-point touch, the screen itself is made of ordinary panel, and if you watched the Unboxing video, you probably noticed that it has less viewing angles.

    17k antutu for a non-HD and 512 mb RAM? You've gotta be out of your mind. The other picture only shows only 5968 kaya this is obviously dinoktor na.
