The camera will deliver pics at a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels with a 4x digital zoom and a range of shooting options including panorama, anti-shake plus blink and smile detection, and multishot – up to nine pics, depending on how long you hold down the shutter.

5Mp camera with a dual-LED flash should satisfy most snappers

The panorama option offers the unusual choice of choosing the direction in which you pan – left to right, right to left, up or down. It will also automatically lock on and take the next of three pics as you pan round – a quick and easy option that fits in nicely with the speedy ethos of the phone.

Scene options include beach/snow, sunset, dawn, fireworks, candlelight and backlight, plus the dual LED offers a brighter flash than most. Overall the pictures deliver a reasonable degree of detail and fairly accurate colour balance, despite the actual lack of megapixels. Video meanwhile is in 640 x 480 (VGA) resolution at 30 fps, with a 120fps slow motion option, both of which come across pretty well too.

Watching video on the AMOLED screen was a joy. The on-board accelerometer flips it into landscape mode automatically, and while 3.1in isn't quite enough to enjoy a full-length film on, for music vids and Youtube clips it looks great. The onscreen resolution was good enough to show off anything we threw at it, and though it wouldn't necessarily resize all file types to full screen, it played all our MPEG 4, WMV and AVI video files without complaint, and can handle DivX and Xvid files too.
