They are arranged physical buttons, also of metal.
On the right side edge are the power button and volume control. On the left: a separate button for camera shutter release, SOS button and PTT (radio).
All connectors have a plug, in case they are lost there is a spare set in the box. Trays for the SIM and memory card are hidden under a plate on the rear panel, which caused Blackview logo. To access the tray, you must unscrew the screws and remove the turn plate and the rubber plug.

Of course, a strong emphasis on the photographic component manufacturer did not do so bugs are still there. For example, the presence of zamylenny area at one end, and the color on the photo is mainly closer to the cool shades. The dynamic range is not ideal if the shot fall the objects with high contrast in color, are possible overexposure, or the appearance of dark areas. HDR mode bit saves the day.

With the earpiece there is no problem, the interlocutor is heard well. The main speaker is normal, but high volume it is different. Rather, the average volume, as in many smartphones. There is also a small glitch: when something is played, and volume to a minimum, you can hear the hiss and crackle of the dynamics.
