Watch Vernee Apollo Lite Review:
Straight from the unboxing the Vernee Apollo Lite is a very attractive smartphone and really pleasing to the eye. The look does not quite match that of its namesake the Vernee Apollo but it offers up a design all of its own. The round edge on the whole frame has a perfection about it that is right up there with the best, combine this with the metal finish of CNC polishing, it is a beautiful phone.
The rear of the device exhibits a slight curve , which in your hand feels very comfortable It also has a square finger print sensor , camera and LED flash on the rear which all have rounded edges. The Apollo lite comes with 2.5D Arc Screen and Capacitive Touch(5-Points),which comes with the added protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The bezels around the device are also made of CNC Polished metal, the large screen leaves little room for much else, but there is the front camera and camera flash. At the bottom, Vernee have gone with double-speakers on either side of the device and a USB Type-C port, unfortunately there is no Audio jack, but lets face it , these days most headsets etc. are wireless so this wont be such a big omission.
