Design of GoClever Insignia 5X smartphone is based on a simple and elegant business style that is characterized by black tones. The entire structure of the body is very solidly constructed of high-quality plastic in the dimensions 143 x 72 mm. Everything looks as it should. If you replace the rear cover with one in an alternate color, if you insert a larger capacity battery – 4000 mAh, the device gets a completely new look, but not just colorful. It’s getting real fat. Specifically, it increases the thickness of the 9 mm to 14 mm, and the weight increases from 156 g to 206 g.
