Review: Motorola Photon 4G
The Photon 4G has an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. I was hoping for much better results. The Photon 4G does a great job at getting color and white balance correct. Exposure was also good most of the time, though it had trouble in difficult lighting situations. The biggest two problems are focus and grain. The Photon 4G rarely produced a razor-sharp image, and the added grain makes nearly every photo look fuzzy. This was disappointing. They're worth sharing, sure, but not necessarily blowing up and hanging in your foyer.
Conversely, the 720p HD video I shot with the Photon 4G was utterly fantastic. Focus was incredibly sharp, and the video popped with clarity, color, and life. I was actually stunned at how good the video was (especially after examining the photos). Is it worth sharing? You betcha, feel free to send it to YouTube or the video-sharing service of your choice.
