Starting with the camera, it's fine for MMS messages but don't expect to print out large high quality prints. The LED photo light doesn't illuminate shots well in low light either. Equally, the MP3 player is basic, offering a few options such as shuffle and equaliser settings.
Something we didn't expect was the FM radio that lets you record
straight on to your phone, which is useful but you must make sure to
plug the headset in and have good reception. Unfortunately, you have to
use the proprietary headphones and there's no 3.5mm headphone adapter
in the box.
Another niggle we had with the Levi's phone is the texting interface that features T9 but doesn't seem to let you input new words, which is very annoying.
Audio quality was clear during calls, although we would've liked to be able to turn the volume higher at times. The loudspeaker sounded loud and worked as expected. Battery life was good, lasting for over two days with moderate use, probably made longer by the fact there's no 3G, Wi-Fi or GPS draining the battery.
Given that this is Levi's first phone and that most fashion phones are unusable, it isn't bad at all. It's small, fairly easy to use and not featureless. But as any fashion phone owner will tell you, fashion phones must evoke an emotional response and after playing around with it for a while now, we're not exactly bowled over by it.
