The external display shows the usual information, though it would be nice to be able to see some internal menus without opening the phone. The black-and-red color scheme is very Verizon.

The Ravine 2's camera and flash are located on its top rear side. Photo quality is poor, unfortunately, and there's no self-portrait mirror.

The battery cover has a locking switch to keep out water and dust.

On the left side are the push-to-talk control, the volume rocker, and a voice commands button. The headset jack up top also has a cover, though it's too bad that the jack is 2.5mm, rather than 3.5mm.
