Armed with a 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper, its quality isn’t in the same light as the elites in the category, but nonetheless, it might please some people enough to accept as being usable. As long as there’s plenty of lighting, shots definitely have some appeal with their overall looks – though, over-sharpening becomes apparent. With its color reproduction, it tends to come out somewhat distorted at time, and beyond that, it doesn’t seem to handle dynamic range that well. In lower lighting situations, noise, graininess, and super soft details become the distracting elements.

Likewise, we can say the same thing about its 1080p video recording quality. In general, the quality is average at best, but the biggest distraction is the artifacting elements that pop up, which become more transparent as there is less lighting. Otherwise, it maintains a good capture rate, has a gradual exposure, and produces so-so details.

Donning the same old Sense music player from before, there’s nothing particularly engaging about its presentation or functionality. Luckily, the audio quality of its internal speaker is superb, since its volume output doesn’t strain at the loudest setting. Better yet, Beats Audio support splashes on that lovable level of amplification to give it that robust and full bodied quality to headphones connected to the 3.5mm jack.

Combining its large size display and effective dual-core processor, it makes for a wonderful video watching experience. In fact, in didn’t strain once trying to play our test video that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution. Additionally, it features support for other codecs out of the box as well – like H.264, MPEG-4, and XviD.
