Review: Huawei myTouch and myTouch Q for T-Mobile
The camera software is a cinch to operate. The camera can be opened via the lock screen or the dedicated camera button. It takes several seconds to open.
Most of the screen is reserved for the viewfinder and the controls are kept to a minimum. There's a strip of controls positioned along the left edge of the viewfinder and include settings, flash, front/back camera switch, and video/camera switch. The flash is either on or off, there's no "auto" setting. The full setting menu allows users to adjust white balance, focus mode, image size and quality, as well as apply some effects before shooting. There aren't any cool shooting modes, such as panorama. Bummer.
The autofocus behaves a bit oddly. When you use the physical shutter button, there is no autofocus. It just shoots an image quickly with focus set to infinity. If you want the autofocus to work, you have to use the software shutter button. The trade off is speed for focus. If you need to shoot immediately, use the physical button. If you want something that looks better, use the software button.

The camera app doesn't offer a review screen, so you have to press the gallery button if you want to look at your pictures.
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.
Unfortunately, it supports only the most basic editing functions (crop and rotate). You can, however, easily share photos to the social network of your choice via the standard Android gallery tools.
