The back camera on the Anthem runs up to 5-megapixels, although the front-facing camera is a measly .3 megapixel VGA job that was barely adequate for video chat. The images we took here all appeared weak, especially when using the built-in flash.
Everything somehow managed to look washed out, grainy, and with a tinge of greenish hue throughout. While five megapixels should be decent for a casual camera, they just don't do the trick here.
Video is even worse than the photos, with the phone promising HD 1080p resolution, but delivering it with a lot of grain and stuttering framerates in many cases. It's not a camera you would want to use to record family events or keepsake moments. And it goes without mentioning that the front-facing camera should only be used if you find yourself with your hand trapped under a boulder while hiking.
