The Galaxy S II's 8-megapixel camera takes outstanding pictures. Focus is sharp enough to cut, colors looked natural and clean, white balance was accurate, and plenty of detail is available in each shot. See the flowers below. Notice how you can make out every petal and detail of each bud.

The Galaxy S II has a flash for indoor shots, and it performs very well. It manages to avoid some of the white balance problems that occur on other phones when the flash fires.

You're going to want to share these photos.


Video captured with the Galaxy S II looks fantastic. I found it to be very accurate and real-to-life. Colors were accurate, exposure and focus were good, and the microphone was sensitive enough to capture every whisper within ear shot. The only issue I saw was the jittery-ness that happens when recording at such a high resolution. It's best to hold the Galaxy S II still when shooting 1080p video, as panning around can create a nauseating effect.
