Inquiry about camera button feature

I work in a Wireless device franchise store location, and I work with Smartphones and Tablets pretty much every day. I am somewhat familiar with the G3 in terms of usability and did discover that there is a hardware camera button feature. I haven't had the chance to verify it on the G Vista yet so I'm not sure if they incorporated it into the phone, but I can't imagine that they would leave it out.

If you have the screen powered off and you long press the volume down key on the back with your finger, it automatically opens the camera without having to go through the lock screen. And if you press the key again it snaps a photo. Perhaps you can verify that for me if you get the opportunity.

Thanks!

little bit of incorrect info

"There are no physical buttons on the front or side surfaces of the G Vista. Like the G3, the G Vista's controls are located on the back surface. The G Vista is the third phone from LG to use this button configuration and I still have a difficult time adjusting to it."


I believe this is the 4th phone to use the back buttons, the first 3 being the G2, G flex, and G3

Screen is 720p (?)

I know that over and over they are reporting that this screen is 540, but last night a Verizon chat rep told me it is really 720. But so far after having asked about 6 Verizon people in stores and online, it's 50/50 - half are saying it's 540 and the other half 720. Sad they don't train their people well enough to know. Their web site just says "HD display" with no pixel dimensions.

Another note - it just has 8 gigs of built-in memory and only around 3.97 gigs available for the user so a micro-sd is a necessity if you get one.
