Compared to another ARNOVA 7b G3, the 7 G3 does not come with rounded edges, however it is slightly smaller and lighter than the 7b G3. Its weight of 300g is very comfortable in one or both hands.
The build materials run to a shiny black plastic front surrounding the screen and a grey backplate. Fingerprints are a bit of an issue on both front and the back.
