MONO is a standard smartphone thought by NTT DOCOMO. It is not only low-cost, but high-quality. Its best feature is the waterproof silent mode switch, which allows the user to respond quickly to the surroundings. Also, tempered glass is employed front and rear to improve the texture, and aluminum is used for the power key. With a rounded shape to fit in the hand and a pocket size width of 69mm, the approximately 4.7-inch liquid crystal display can be operated one-handed. As the device supports high-quality calls and is waterproof and dustproof, it is a design recommended for first-time users.
