Review: Samsung Conquer 4G
The Conquer 4G runs the stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread camera application. To the far right, there is a 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 Conquer 4G takes about a second to focus before snapping the picture. Sadly, there is no touch-to-focus feature. it focuses on whatever is in the center of the viewfinder. Rather than offer a review screen, the Conquer 4G takes you right back to the viewfinder. Reviewing images is only possible in the gallery, though you can see a teeny thumbnail of your most recent picture at the top of the screen.

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 least you get the basics. Sharing options are solid, and incorporate all the social networking apps on board the Conquer 4G, such as Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, SMS, Gmail and Bluetooth.
