Why you can trust TechRadar
Face detection is built-in, as is geotagging thanks to the GPS chip in the phone. There's also a 4x digital zoom, not that these are ever really worth bothering with in phones if you care about image quality.
You can choose from a range of scene modes, including Portrait, Sports, Landscape, Night, the aforementioned Face Detection (which would be better as a part of the Auto setting) and others.
You can use the Convenience key on the handset as a shutter, or the on-screen button. Either works fine, thanks to the excellent lack of shutter lag - hit the button and the photo appears pretty much instantly.
There aren't any focus options, though. You can't half-depress the Convenience key to focus, and there's no tap-to-focus mode. You'll just have to trust the phone.
OUTDOORS: Eurgh. In the middle of the (admittedly quite overcast) afternoon, there's almost no detail or focus in this shot, and the whole picture is full of digital noise.
LIGHTS: Despite the fast shutter speed, this shot has blurred because the camera just can't get enough light in. Again, this was the middle of the afternoon, but it could be evening judging by this image. And again, there's a huge amount of noise in the solid colours, such as the blue.
COLOUR: This photo is better than the others, with the red poppies picked out well, and clear lines and detail stretching into the background, even though the plaque near the back has been overexposed as part of the camera's attempt to compensate for the light.
DETAIL: This close-up was taken outside, and the flash kicked in, which helped. As a result, you can see plenty of details in the divots in the store. The image is still quite soft, and there's still digital noise in the areas of solid colour, however.
INDOORS: Neither of these shots is worth much cop. The one without flash has more even lighting, but is absolutely filled with digital noise. The subject is brighter with the flash, but there's not really any more detail on show.
