Fortunately, the microphone performed in an okay-ish way where it can do acceptable recordings and clear calls.
Battery LifeDonning 2,500 mAh of battery capacity on a 5 inch screen and an old dual core processor did wonders in making the most out of the battery of this phone. On casual usage, it was able to last with me for a good whole day of usage with occasional calls, frequent sms, wifi on and taking photos.
Under heavy usage, battery test aren't working, but on a video loop, it was able to clock 5:35 mins of straight watching.
CameraOn paper, the D-Lite Plus 2 uses a 5 MP / 2 MP setup which is quite a standard for phones with this type of SRP. However, unlike its competitors, both of the cameras of this phone didn't have autofocus and even touch to focus feature. That will require you to have steady hands to take not that blurry shots.
Quality-wise, I didn't expect that much considering the price of this phone and I was right. It can take acceptable photos under good lighting, but don't expect it to be as sharp and detailed. On the brighter side of things, it has quick shutter speed.
It was just darker than my liking, can't focus that close, has a lot of noise even with normal florescent lighting and really not that usable in the dark. We also noticed that if you use the flash too strong if you're near the subject.
In front, it's usable at best, but don't rely on it on taking your selfies and video calls. It badly needs improvement.
Video quality isn't also great, but should be usable if you have no choice and when badly needed.
Overall, we think that this phone didn't perform nicely in this department. Having said that, I'm expecting Happy Mobile to step up their game here in their next releases. I'm sure they will.

Like we said earlier, this phone runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS with a skin that packs a lot of good features. It has smart gestures with tap tap to wake, ram management and change of themes. We just noticed that it has too many pre-loaded widgets on the spot that you should remove to make your phone speedier.
Connectivity-wise: Bluetooth works, it has average GSM signals that has 3G connection when needed.
