The device

Taking a good look at the PhonePad 3. I must say, there are a lot of cool stuff about it.

You can plug in your earphones into the headphone jack, and it’s at the right top corner of the phone

The SIM tray is at the left side of the phone, it can be accessed by pushing the sim ejector pin into the tiny hole on the tray

There is a memory card slot in the PhonePad 3, users are not restricted to the amount of space on their phone. It is just below the sim tray and can also be accessed using the ejector pin.

The volume button and the Power button which is differentiated by a more rigid surface are on the right side of the PhonePad 3

Just below the power button is the fingerprint censor. This is somewhat strange to me, I have never used a phone with a fingerprint censor by the side of the phone. It’s still so cool though, very easy access however you hold the Phone.

First impressions

Looking at the PhonePad 3, with a weight of 171 grams without it being fitted into its case. Weighing 174 grams with the case on. These weights are optimally okay for the type of properties that come with the PhonePad 3.

The screen which is large will really help business owners communicate wonderfully and still get their work done even when they are on the go.

The price of the PhonePad 3 is yet to be announced as at the time of this post because the device is yet to be launched by the company.
