You will find a removable sticker on the back that give you all the directions you need to get started using the Sonic 4G Mobile HotSpot. The back battery cover is coated in soft touch material so it won't slide around when placed on a table.

Under the battery cover you will find the battery, SIM card slot, and microSD card slot.

It's nice to see that a standard microUSB port is found on the bottom for charging up the device and for connectivity when in USB tethering mode.

As you can see the front has a mirror-like finish on it. It is also quite compact and fits well in a hand.

The OLED display shows you all you need for connectivity and battery status, including how many devices are connected, signal strength and type, and battery life remaining.
