Camera


The camera interface is easy to use and has plenty of options, including 7 scene modes, HDR, Panorama, and Burst shots, flash, focusing, resolution, ISO, white balance, and color effects.

Camera interface


Images that we took outside with the 5MP shooter provided average results, with colors looking mostly neutral and with good detail, though some areas were a bit over exposed. Unfortunately, inside images were a disappointment, as they all looked blurry and out-of-focus, even if there was plenty of light. Furthermore the LED Flash gives images a green hue, which we doubt anyone will like.


Videos can be recorded at 1920x1080p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. While this sounds good, the video quality is also disappointing, as the image looks dark and grainy, and every small motion of your hand is picked up and amplified.



Multimedia


LG includes their own Music Player, in case you’re not a fan of standard Google Play Music app. It has a nice user interface, with tabs across the top for songs, albums, artists, genres and playlists, but lacking is any EQ settings – only a Dolby Mode when connecting wired headsets. Music played through the rear speaker is adequate, but is lacking in volume and overall fullness.

The thumbnail view in the Gallery app is nothing that we haven’t seen before, as it’s pretty much stock Android. For playing back your own videos files, most formats are supported, including MPEG-4, H.264/263, DivX and Xvid.

Rating is too high, maybe 4.5 for that kind of innovation, #trash

Funny how reviews will vary a lot based on age and sex. I have an LG Accolade that is 5 years old. My kids have all had smartphones for a while. Not me. I was afraid of a smartphone. My Accolade has been dropped a million times-mostly on concrete or asphalt-and still works great! Recently, while visiting out of state, something got dropped on it and the front screen now has an ink blob on it. But the inside screen still works fine. Many of my letters and numbers are worn off. So I've been looking at smartphones. Since my LG has held up so well-still didn't need to charge it but once every 3-4 days-I have been reading reviews on the Enact. For the most part people like me have loved it! The over 50 crowd! I don't need nor want a bunch of bells and whistles. I'd like to have a GPS so if I'm away from home and can't remember where a restaurant I ate at a long time ago. I'd like to be able to purchase off of Amazon. But really having a smartphone has been based in fear. And from what I can tell from reviews from people like me-well, I've made my mind up and the Enact is the one. So younger people continue to love love the IPhone's and Windows phones and don't bash the lessor smartphone. It is exactly what WE need.
