The camera on the Motorola Razr i is 8MP. Granted, that's hardly cutting edge.
But it's certainly the favoured spec among manufacturers these days, and as our readers remind us every time we bemoan the lack of megapixel numbers in reviews, it's just as much about the lens, aperture and so on, anyway. We hear you.
Firstly, the interface. It's neither overly complicated, nor so bare that it's a nuisance. You have access to standard features such as timer or single shot mode, exposure settings, pointless effects (seriously, does anyone actually take photos in negative mode?) and the option to flit between portrait and landscape and so on.
The quality of the camera is OK. We can't really say much more. In good light, pictures come out well.
Photos are passable, but you can tell they came from a camera phone, which is a line that is becoming more and more blurred as technology advances.
Check out the outdoor photo we took in Covent Garden on a bright day. Colours are well represented, and when you turn the HDR mode on, they look even better.
Indoors with good light gives pleasing results.
Black & White and Negative modes are both pretty run of the mill these days.
Focusing is done automatically, but if you don't trust the camera, you're welcome to have a go yourself and refocus by tapping. The shutter speed is very good in the right conditions.
This shot of the dog in the park was captured as she was running, and while most other phones (including even the Galaxy S3) would have blurred, the Motorola Razr i put in a stellar performance.
Sadly, when the light starts to dim and you use the flash, it starts to go a bit more downhill. It's not that pictures look bad - but more that the focus isn't as sharp, and the light doesn't look as nice.
The flash works well in pitch black conditions, though colours are not very warm.
The front facing camera is VGA only. It's a bit of a disappointment, since it means lower quality images, but then again, the idea behind these cameras is that they're used more for video calls than vanity. And since bandwidth issues mean you're not going to be sending the most high definition video around, it's all passable enough.
