Levi's mobile phone review

T he company Levi Strauss & Co was founded in 1853 by Mr. Levi Strauss. Strauss developed the very first blue jean in 1873 which made the company grow into a prosperous business. Nowadays Levi's products are being sold in 110 countries and the one and only Levi's mobile phone is available in the stores now. Mobile phones are the ultimate accessory in the lives of today's generation of youngsters. It seemed a logical step for Levi's to put a mobile phone on the market tailor-made to the desires of the younger consumer. The Levi's mobile phone has a trendy, cool appearance and puts emphasis on functionality. It's a promising device; therefore I was delighted to carry this jewel with me for as long as an entire week.

Mobile phone retail packaging

Besides the Levi's mobile phone itself, the square, black box contains the common users guide, a battery charger (in combination with a USB cable), software and a headset. A pouch also comes standard with the device but I didn't want to hide the cell phone inside it because of its attractive appearance. Also because the pouch seemed all too eager to collect dust. Furthermore a chain with a clip is found in the box that lets you attach the mobile phone to your jeans or bag. I haven't used it though because I was afraid it would scratch and damage the cell phone. The mobile phone comes in the colours chrome, black, copper and in the feminine "shiny silver" and "shiny sand" versions.

Levi cellular phone design

The unique design is the first thing that strikes you about this Levi's mobile phone. The stainless steel housing with ornamental screws gives the phone a solid appearance and a firm feel. The cell phone is extremely compact and thin with dimensions of 3.8 x 2.2 x 0.4 inch making it easy to carry it with you in your trouser pocket. A stylish detail is the engraved Levi Strauss & Co logo that stands out on the back of the cell phone. The microphone and camera lens are both integrated in the black part of the phone's top side. Levi's obviously have put time and effort in developing the design to meet the fashion-conscious consumer.
