Review: Samsung Replenish
Samsung continues to offer some of the best camera software for its phones at all levels. The camera is slightly sluggish to open, but it's far from the worst. The viewfinder offers plenty of room for composing shots despite the presence of on-screen controls and software tools to adjust the camera's behavior.
To the far right, there is a stock-looking set of software toggles for jumping to the video camera, the gallery, and a software shutter button. Next to this set of tools, there are five icons sitting in the viewfinder area. Press any of the icons, and a drop-down menu appears next to it for adjusting the cameras settings. I love the way this software works. It's so much better than having to press the hardware menu button to get at the same bunch of controls. It's easier and you don't have to leave the viewfinder to make any of the adjustments.

Press either the software or physical shutter button and the Replenish snaps the image almost instantly. Rather than offer a review screen, the Replenish takes you right back to the viewfinder. Reviewing images is only possible in the gallery, though you can see a teeny thumbnail of it at the top of the screen.Gallery
The gallery is the stock Android option. Photo albums float in stacks in the main gallery view, and you can sift through them in the chronological timeline in which they are arranged. It has a neat 3D look and feel to it.
Editing options are severely limited. Crop and rotate are all you get. Some of Samsung's best devices offer more than this, but at lease you get the very basics. Sharing options are solid, and incorporate all the social networking apps on board the Replenish, such as TweetCaster, SpringPad, Evernote, YouTube, etc.
