Review: Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T
The Exhilarate may be limited to a 5-megapixel camera, but it does quite a good job. I was pleased with the majority of shots I took, which were in focus, exposed correctly, and showed accurate colors. There's slightly more grain found on images taken indoors, but the bright flash will help offset the grain a bit if you use it. The Exhilarate can easily replace a point-and-shoot camera for casual use.
The video camera maxes out at 720p HD video. I thought the results were very good. The footage I captured was smooth, focus was good, and panning the camera about didn't make me sick to my stomach. I wouldn't recommend you use it to record your cousin's wedding or your kid's graduation, but for everyday video needs it's a good alternative to dedicated video equipment.
