Review: LG Connect 4G for MetroPCS
The Connect has a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash. I was a bit disappointed with the results. While images are free of grain and show excellent focus, exposure was way off. You'll see in the sample images that plenty of detail is lost when the sensor is overwhelmed by bright colors. The colors look good, but they are too much for the Connect.
The highest video quality that the Connect can capture is 1280 x 720 (HD 720p) resolution. I was fairly impressed with the video quality. It performed much better than the still camera at handling adverse lighting and bright sunlight. You'll see in the video below that only when aiming the Connect directly at the sun does the resulting video lose any detail. Otherwise it's solid for a 720p HD camcorder.
