Review: LG Cosmos Touch
Photos taken with the 1.3-megapixel camera on the LG Cosmos Touch looked lousy. All of my pictures looked blurry. Indoor shots were also too dark, with a grey palor. A flash might have helped here, but there is no flash on this camera. Photos also had a fuzzy look up close, with over-sharpening that made images look like still frames from a VHS tape. Outside, under bright light, pictures were still bad, but not so awful as my indoor shots. Colors looked fine, and the camera handled darker shaded areas well. But images were still blurry overall, and fuzzy around the edges of objects. Plus, bright white spots could completely explode and spill into their surroundings.
The LG Cosmos Touch does not have any video recording capability. That's an unfortunate omission, even on a phone this basic, though many of Verizon's 1xRTT phones lack video recording.
