Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The camera has a few options, but it's certainly not up with the best we've seen. There's an anti-flicker setting and geo-tagging, but nothing in the way of special features such as smile detection or macro modes. Pictures are reasonably sharp but you'll need to be mindful of its limitations, as it doesn't handle excessive light too well and the lack of a flash hampers shooting in low light conditions.

Video recording is okay, but not particularly impressive with a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Camphones offering 720p HD are fast becoming common these days, which puts the Liquid E at a disadvantage here. Videos look good on the 3.5in screen and while doesn't quite match the iPhone for clarity, it's fairly sharp and quick to respond.
