“There’s a single virtual button on the bottom. You tap it once to go back, twice to go home, and long-press it to get to the multitasking screen. Since there are no volume buttons, you need to swipe down the quick settings panel to adjust that. And since there’s no fingerprint sensor, Palm wrote a custom face-unlock feature that uses the 8-megapixel front camera,” according to The Verge.

Also, the Palm, the smallest Android smartphone of the moment, is also boasting a Life Mode that “enables a set of Do Not Disturb and Low Battery settings.”

“In Life Mode, your notifications are obviously turned off, but Palm is also turning off the wireless radios. The cellular and Wi-Fi radios will only turn on when the screen is on. It’s a much more aggressive way to turn off notifications and deny incoming phone calls,” the folks from The Verge said.
