Camera:

The Galaxy Chat comes with a basic 2MP snapper. Still on this part? OK, so it also has a bunch of settings which are also present with pretty much every other Samsung smartphone. No surprises here.


The pictures themselves aren't pretty. Colors are dull and everything is quite blurred. It's good to know that it's there, but otherwise we can't imagine that many users will be “taking advantage” of this camera.



Video is captured at 320x240 and 15fps, and, as you might expect, it's very hard to look at. In our opinion, Samsung should have included at least a 3.2MP shooter in this phone. Let's hope that the price will justify it.

Multimedia:

The TouchWiz music player is easy to use and pleasing to the eye (as much as the QVGA screen allows it to be). It comes with the mandatory EQ presets and the ability to set a custom EQ, but that's not all. There are also a few additional options, which allow you to add Reverb, Room Size and Clarity effects to your tunes, if you like what you hear.


The handset easily plays MPEG-4 video at resolutions that are higher than its native one (meaning most video that you'll ever find). However, in order to play other codecs like DivX or Xvid, you'll have to install a third-party player like MX Player.
