Camera:

The LG Marquee’s 5MP camera gave us a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde performance. Outdoors under natural lighting we got good color reproduction, better than average detail and overall good results. Indoors, however, images were grainy and details were poor. The flash didn’t do much to help with image quality. The video camera can capture 720p video which was good but not great. Ours recorded at 23fps, which gave us fairly smooth video with good audio pickup.



With the stock Android camera interface you’re options are fairly limited and you’re stuck with preset modes and scenes rather than being able to tinker with more detailed settings. Up front is a 2MP camera for video chat and self-shots. 




Multimedia:

Like we mentioned earlier the LG Marquee only was able to achieve 15fps during Quadrant testing, but with our test videos we couldn’t tell a performance difference. There was some artifacting that we had not seen on other devices with DivX files, but H.264, MPEG-4 and Xvid files all played at 720p with no problems. On the NOVA display movies looked very good. The stock Android music and video players are used, so there are no surprises on that front.
