Default Man, this thing is nice

Just got this yesterday, moving from the triumph. It's a dream. The camera does some weird orientation stuff tho, lol

Yes same here. The galaxy is very fast and the battery life is much better than the triumph.

Default Raw Camera and Video Examples

The camera is amazing; Here's an un-retouched picture I took with it yesterday with the standard settings. Blow it up too full size and checkout the detail. Photo does not look like it was shot with a phone (Video quality is good too).

S2 4G Camera Example

2MB of raw video (click to download) Stop the video, frames are near picture quality. You can read the logo on the flags.

Raw S2 Video

Single frame from Video:

How fast is the 4G? Faster than my 10MB wireless at home;



GPS chip set is quite sensitive too; It will lock under partial tree cover.

I figured the camera thing out. The stock and my other cam apps seem to work fine, but I always I use the paid version of the lg app. It seems in ics it locks the orientation to landscape so in portrait you get a sideways pic. And yes , the pics look to good to come from a phone
