USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN THAT ALSO LOOKS GREAT

The unique design of the SR15 has been created to look great as well as be super-user-friendly. The slight angle of the screen offers a better grip and an uninterrupted view of the screen. To add panache, there's a rectangular reflective coating that changes shape based on different angles of light to give you a 3D-like space.
