In this review, I will talk about a phone called G’zOne Ravine by Casio.
Like the G’zOne Rock, Ravine is bulky and heavy but the front side of the phone is better than that of its predecessor. The external display is encircled by a metallic red color and it complements the rest of the phone which is black in color. The phone measures up to 4.3 inches in length, 2.1 inches in width and the thickness of the phone measures to 0.9 inches. It is made up of durable, long lasting plastic shell and is resistive of shock, water, salt fog and other materials.
Now the review will talk about the features of the phone.
The 1.35’’ external display of the phone is a mono LCD. It displays the usual date, signal strength, life of the battery and other basic information. Once you open the phone, you come across a 2.2’’ display boasting 65,000 TFT color display. The display isn’t as vibrant as a 262,000 color display but it is reasonable, better than we expected. The display boasts a 240×320 pixel resolution and overall the display is sharp. You can enter 1000 contacts in the phone book and add additional information to each contact such as email address, street address and others. Other basic features of G’zOne Ravine include an alarm clock, world clock, notepad, stop watch, calculator and others. It also has support for voice command, mobile IM, Bing search and a wireless Web browser. Moreover, Ravine also comes in support of USB mass storage, GPS, Push-to-Talk, Bluetooth profiles for headset and others. The suite of applications in Ravine, thanks to G’zGear is something that makes the phone interesting. Some of the pre-installed applications include a compass, a thermometer, a walking pedometer and various others that a user can make the most of in his/her daily life. There is also EV-DO Rev in Ravine that enables you to make the phone an entertainment house once you step out of the house. The music player of the phone comes in support for different formats such as MP3, AAC+, WMA and unprotected AAC. Moreover, Ravine is capable of holding an external memory card up to 32GB.
Now the review will talk about the camera of the phone.
Ravine has a 3.2 megapixel camera that is able to take photographs in six resolutions. Images taken from the phone turned out to be reasonable/not great but not too bad either. There is an LED flash that helps you take pictures in a dark room. The built in video camera of the phone is able to record different videos in resolution 320×240.
To finish off my review, Casio G’zOne Ravine gets a 7/10 rating from us because it justifies its price. The phone is good in terms of design, display, while the features of the phone aren’t too bad either. It is a good entry level phone, performing all the necessary functions one needs to do with a phone such as Ravine.
