First impressions
Very good design and workmanship. Easily held and operated with one hand. Quickly finds you where you are, by GPS, without WiFi or 3G. Very good screen with wonderful contrast and brightness on the display. Good coverage of GSM/3G signal, excellent quality microphone and speaker for calls. Speaker on the phone is good and pulls great sound, but the station has much better sound.

Wonderful screen with great viewing angles. When outdoors, even if it does not include outdoor screen mode still very visible on max brightness but if is it on less than 45-50% you should to turn on outdoor mode to see all.

You can play all games without lag with enabled power saving mode on maximum. All games starting without problems, but most of apps closing when I put the phone into the station. The camera is wonderful with many of options, also the front camera is good. The WiFi signal is strong. Doesn't have any lag in Android menus. Here are benchmark tests, and camera pictures:

If you play games on the phone you can play around 4 - 5 hours. If you browse you can browse all day and your battery in the evening will be on 30-40%. If you watch film(the film that I watched was 2 hours and half) with station the battery both devices will drain with 20-35%.

How to take screenshots
To take screenshot you should to hold the power and volume down button.

When you connect OTG cable to your phone or station, you can open Flash Drives, connect Mouse and Keyboard, when you connect USB Hub you can connect mouse and keyboard but only one Flash Drive.

When you connect you phone to your TV you can show your phone screen to your TV, that is all. If your film or game have good graphic quality you will have good quality and on the TV. You can also play and 3D films.

If your TV have DLNA you can play films to your TV when you connect your phone to the same wireless network as the TV and use APP for DLNA playing, but with that option you can only to play music, films and photos, cannot view your phone screen on the TV.
