If the principle of look for something to complain about in terms of appearance, I would be scolded for ASUS touch buttons below the screen, and they are without light. However, clearly a disadvantage device to record them is not necessary. On the one hand, when using the virtual keys can be reduced and the device size ratio of the screen to the front side, but at the same time, the effective area of the screen in the presence of separate touch buttons more. In this regard, there is no perfect solution – who likes more. Speaking of the front side of the device, it is worth noting branded box at the bottom, but the location of the other elements – the front camera, earpiece and service sensors – is commonplace. It is hardly in this sense can come up with something radically new.
The rear panel is also not without proprietary design solutions ASUS. You should start with the volume rocker, which is just below the main camera. Its texture repeats box below the screen.
