Review: Samsung Replenish
The Replenish has a lowly 2 megapixel camera with no flash and no auto-focus, which is as low-end as it gets with an Android phone. Results are wildly inconsistent. I captured a few gems, but most often images were a disaster. For example, the ketchup bottle below features completely blown-out labels, even though the rest of the image is exposed properly. Focus is nearly non-existent, with many images coming through soft and ill-defined. White balance was typically good, but with the poor exposure control and bad focus, you'll be lucky to get many share-worthy shots with this phone.
Video shot with the Replenish, even when set to the highest quality settings, is pretty miserable. Detail is pretty much non-existent, there's plenty of waviness if the phone is panned about when recording, and blocky artifacts are everywhere. Unless used under optimal conditions (outdoors, in bright sunlight), results will be sub-par compared to many of today's mid-range phones.
