User Interface
This is the first Sanyo model that I have to review and I am very impressed. The phone's response to command is very fast. No matter if I was deleting 20 images or playing Packmen – the phone's performance was blazing fast. The menu items are very well organized with very clear logical structure.

The first menu from the top left-hand corner is the Picture & Video. The MM-7400 is equipped with 640 x 480 VGA camera. Its performance is still worse then pictures taken with Nokia 6600 or Samsung D415 but better then Samsung E715 or Motorola V600.
MM-7400 night shots we better then most cameras, but still not comparable with the ones from Nokia 6600. Most MM-7400 night shots had more noise, were darker with a less detail.

The settings in Camera are:

  • flash – allows to start-stop the “fhash”
  • Self-timer of 10 or 5 seconds
  • Fun tools – consists of Fun Frames like for Christmas, Graduations, Halloween and others; Multiple-shots – shoot 3 pictures one after the other; color tone – sepia, black&white, negative, posterization, emboss, drawing
  • Image controls  - brightness and white balance (auto, sunnym cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent or manual)
  • Resolution – three settings are available – 640 x 480, 320 x 240 or 160 x 120
  • Quality – could be economy, normal and fine (different compression levels)
  • Shutter sound – can select from the regular camera click to saying “Cheez”
  • Night mode
  • Full screen

The movie mode on the other hand is quite good. There are two choices of resolutions – a medium of 128 x 96 and good of 176 x 144. The flash-light can be turn-on and will simulate video-light and unless you are recoding an object just several inches ways, it is worthless (like the flash-light in almost all phones). The other options available in Camcorder mode are:
- self-timer or 10 or 5 seconds
- Brightness – auto or manual
- White balance – auto, or sunny, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent or manual
- Video quality – could be economy which gives you 30 seconds of recording per clip, normal with 20 seconds or rich with 15 seconds
- Silent movie – turns off the recording of sounds
- Cue Sounds – if enabled the phone says: “Roll Camera – Action” when the recording starts and “Cut” when it ends
- Night mode
