One is the night application where the phone will let out soft female voice. ‘Honey, its me!’ has become the first feature that enables video calls.The message that expressed by Mina for example, “Are you asleep?”, “Time for breakfast!” Or “Good night, sweet dreams.” The application allows more than 100 audio commentary which is expected to reduce feelings of loneliness in men.
