Review: Kyocera Echo
With a 5-megapixel shooter with both a flash and auto-focus, I expected to achieve decent results with the Echo, and I wasn't disappointed. While only a few of the images I captured were exceptional, many of them were very good.
Focus was mostly sharp, though I noticed a bit of noise here and there. Color accuracy and white balance were on track most of the time.

Video, whether shot in YouTube quality or high quality, is pretty good. I saw a bit more noise in the lower quality setting, but focus, color accuracy and white balance were all even.
