Web

We all love working, don’t we? I’m sure none of you reading this would have it any other way than to sit at a desk for hours with little to show for it other than a meager wage.

The phone borrows its design cues from multiple flagship devices, but clearly its major influence is the iPhone 7. But is this dual-selfie camera, iPhone-lookalike worth its price?
