Review: LG Spectrum for Verizon Wireless
The Spectrum does a decent job at capturing images. The sensor and software together were able to accurately and consistently handle white balance, focus, and exposure. As with most handsets, shots taken indoors were subject to more grain, but it wasn't too bad. The flash helps when you're taking pix of friends in dark places, but make sure they're not too far away. Since it is working with 8 megapixels, you can blow the images up to a fairly good size and they'll still look good. You'll be happy to share photos you've taken with the Spectrum.
The Spectrum can capture 1080p HD video. I though the video looked really good. White balance and exposure were spot on, though the 1080p effect (super sharp and highly sensitive to movement of the phone) was noticeable. The slightest movement of the phone while recording creates massive choppiness, but if you can hold still, the video is easily YouTube worthy.
