Review: LG Muziq
Pictures taken with the Muziq are generally good. Colors are a bit muted, but the level of sharpness and clarity was acceptable. It rated a 20/60 on the vision test. Setting the camera controls to the highest resolution and quality settings produced the best results. Images shot both indoors and out appeared to have about the same level of detail. Those taken outdoors were a little bit clearer and less grainy. Subjects that were lit with direct sunlight showed evidence of overexposure, but it most instance this could be corrected by dialing down the brightness/exposure settings with the camera. You could also choose an "enhanced" mode, which boosted color saturation in the pictures. This compensated a little bit for the otherwise muted colors.

Video shot with the Muziq was fairly grainy and showed a lot of pixelization if the phone is being moved around while shooting. If the phone is held still, however, video quality was much better. We'd go so far as to say that it was good. Color was more accurately represented with the video camera, though it still showed overall signs of being a bit muted. As with most camera phones, though, fast moving subjects tend to confuse it a bit and some image ghosting appeared.
