One of the big surprises and something that makes LEAGOO Alfa 2 unique is the backside of the device.  Leagoo decided to make a back touch panel which is an innovation in the smartphone world. You can smoothly slide your fingers on the elaborately designed back panel to scroll, take a picture or wake up the phone with a double tap. To enable the back touch function, you must go to settings and activate it.
