Samsung Galaxy S Duos Review
The Galaxy S Duos comes with a 5-megapixel shooter on the back capturing images at 2592×1944 of resolution. It is an autofocus camera with a single LED flash and while being a long way from the top performers, it’s a decent shooter.
Images we took on a bright sunny day conveyed the fall colors accurately, and while dynamic range isn’t as wide as we’d wish for in a perfect world, we are happy with the camera performance. In low light, noise cripples in of course and colors are skewed to warmer, yellowish and softer, but image quality is still perfectly decent. The LED flash luminates the image evenly and brings the color back from yellowish to normal.
video, though, the camera only records in 640 x 480 pixels. Yes, there is no HD video recording at all, likely due to the dated processor that wouldn’t be able to handle it. And in this day and age this is a disappointment.
Samsung Galaxy S Duos Sample Video:
480p is shot at 30 frames per second and we’d barely notice dropped frames, and again color accuracy is a bonus, but we just wish for a more detailed footage.
When it comes to media playback, the spacious 4-inch screen is a great asset. Audio coming from the single speaker on the back is loud and clear. Video playback is somewhat limited – the S Duos does not play 720p content, nor DivX-Xvid encoded files. The encoding problem is fixed with a simple download on the Play Store, but the highest quality video we could play are ones at the native 800 x 480-pixel resolution, due to the weak processor.
