Three unique features that it offers are ‘dual music mode’, which allows two users to enjoy music by connecting the phone to both wireless and wired earphones simultaneously. The second is ‘focus mode’ that will put your phone on DND so you can choose to listen to one of the four built-in tones (“relaxing music”, as the company calls it) available on the phone. The third is the three-finger screenshot gesture. It will let you take a partial screenshot of the screen. You just have to press and hold the desirable part and swipe with the three fingers.
