Camera:

Brandishing an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, which is undeniably above average amongst Windows 8 slates thus far, we’re quick to realize that there’s nothing impressive with the outcome. In fact, details are pretty much faint and indistinct looking – while colors are muted in tone. For some uncanny reason, there’s no way to manually turn off the LED flash, so it’ll automatically kick in whenever it deems lighting isn’t adequate. Naturally, we’d expect the presence of the flash to strengthen its quality, but it doesn’t add much since it casts a noticeable vignetting effect to the shot.

At the same time, 1080p video recording quality is also underwhelming to say the least. Some of the unwanted distractions with its quality include its flat details, slower 24 frames per second recording, distorted audio recording, heavy artifacting elements, and erratic focus adjustment.

Again, there’s nothing terribly new to say about the music player, since it’s the same one used by all Windows 8 devices. Even though it’s packing stereo support with its two speakers, it sounds rather strained at the loudest setting – so placing it at the middle setting produces tones that are more pleasant.

Obviously, the display size is ample enough for our liking when it comes to watching videos. Unfortunately though, it buckles under the pressure when it comes down to playing 1080p videos. So much so that sluggishness and delays become rampant during playback.
