Review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd
The camera on the Jet is a simple and pleasant experience. Briefly holding down either of the phone's two buttons launches the camera, which comes alive after a 2 second load time. The screen maintains the top row of system indicators for battery and signal strength, while the rest of the screen is filled with what the camera lens sees. The two softbutton labels are displayed on top of the image, which is a more effective use of screen real estate than other phones, which crop the camera output along the bottom of the screen.
After pressing any of the multiple buttons to take a picture (center d-pad, left softbutton, or either physical camera buttons), the phone pauses for another two seconds before the final image is displayed. From there you have the option to immediately send the photo, or to move to the main imaging menu. Moving back to the imaging menu shows the gallery of images saved in the phone, where we could easily select images to be sent, deleted, or selected as wallpaper. Lastly, quitting the camera application after taking a picture does automatically save the captured image, which is certainly our preference over other phones that discard the photo by default.
