Boost IT visibility and business value

The camera is OK, but not particularly impressive. It has a few nifty features including autofocus, multishot (four or nine pics), 4x digital zoom and flash, but there's no smile detection, no macro or panorama modes. Colours aren't always as true as we'd like, definition is quick to suffer in bright situations and edges could look a little sharper.

However, the camera starts up quickly and is a decent little snapper, even if it falls behind other 5Mp models from the likes of Samsung or Sony Ericsson. There's also a 0.3Mp camera on the front for video calling, but it's somewhat redundant at the moment, since you'll need Android 2.2 to be able to use it.

Viewing video showed that the big screen isn't without problems. Some of the videos we tried that looked perfectly fine on smaller screens came up wanting on the big 5in – select with care. It will show H.263/H.264, .3GP, MPEG4 and WMV files, but there's no option to stretch them to fit the screen.
