LG Fathom VS750 Review

Camera:

The 3.2MP autofocus camera on the LG Fathom VS750 puts up a similar performance, compared to other LG models such as the enV3 VX9200 and enV Touch VX11000. However, even though the camera interface is simple to use on the Fathom and provides many options (resolution, image quality, ISO, sense modes, color effects, etc.), it is slow to use, as it takes up to 4 seconds to focus on an image and then another 3 seconds to capture and save the image…while a slow-moving shutter animation moves across the screen. This takes way too long, as you are waiting up to 14 seconds just to capture and save two pictures back-to-back.

The camera interface of LG Fathom VS750


Images that we took outside on a sunny day were about average, as edges were a bit soft and colors were somehow unsaturated. When moving indoors, photos taken with bright light appeared slightly above average, with some pretty decent details being shown. Of course, as the light gets weaker, so do the shots you take on the inside.. The camera also lacks a flash, so you can’t take pictures in dark conditions.

The LG Fathom VS750 can record MPEG-4 3GP videos up to 640x480 resolution, but at only 20fps and pretty mediocre quality.

Multimedia:

The LG Fathom VS750 does an OK job playing back videos on the 3.2” screen. It uses the mobile version of Windows Media Player here, and can play H.264/H.263 encoded MP4 videos and WMV video files. We tested videos up to 720x304 resolution at 30fps with 1500kbps bit rate, and they all played smoothly and without dropping any frames, though there was a slight amount of block-pixelation that could be seen. The picture viewing program is also pretty basic, as it allows you to swipe between images, though it does not support pinch-to-zoom multitouch and instead uses small zoom icons on the screen.

The Windows Media Player is also used to play your selection of MP3/WMA audio files, though the layout is very simplistic and only has categories for artists, albums, and genres. One nice feature is the way it integrates with the homescreen, so that you can control the music playback from there. The music quality was good and plenty loud, despite there being only one speaker on the back. You can also listen to music through wired earbuds using the 3.5mm headset jack, or with Bluetooth stereo headphones.

I bet they used a resistive touchscreen so it could be used with a stylus for business men and women. That's who this phone is intended for.
