The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The Omnia II has the same 5Mp camera as its predecessor, which means it's actually pretty good. With a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels, it loads in around three seconds, snapping quickly too, in under two seconds, which isn't bad at all considering it's has autofocus too. It has a dual LCD flash and there are also macro and face and smile detection options, six-pic multishot, as well as a range of scene modes including a user-friendly panorama option that automatically snaps eight pics as you move.

Photo quality is among the better camphones we've seen with this sort of spec, which means it's not without problems, such as slightly faded colours and an occasional tendency towards lens flare issues, but edges are generally sharp, and there isn't much in the way of purple fringing. You can upload pics directly to your blog and there's geo-tagging too thanks to the onboard GPS.
