Most phones come with flimsy manuals with complicated language and jargon. These books, which can live on a bookshelf actually contain the phone.
Each page reveals the elements of the phone in the right order, helping the user to set up the sim card, the battery and even slide the case onto the phone.

Arrows point to the exact locations the user should press, avoiding confusion and eliminating the feeling of being lost in a menu.
