Samsung Trace SGH-T519 Review
Hold down the camera key (on the right side) for a couple of seconds and after four to five seconds the camera interface will be started. It is similar to those of other Samsung phones and is not very comfortable. The icons are small and hard to understand, while the options are in list menus. You can use a selection of color effects and frames to add to your images. The phone can capture video in low 176x144 pixels resolution that is worth using only for sending to another phone via multimedia message.
The camera quality is below the one we were expecting from it, although it is simple mediocre 1.3-megapixel unit. The color representation is very inadequate; the images are sharpened and have enough detail for use on the Internet, but the colors are unrealistic and grainy. Rarely, you can capture a decent image that's close to the real situation.
The music player has interface similar to those of all other Samsung phones. You can change the visualization, having two options preloaded. Additional equalizers should change the way your music sounds, but if you have no stereo headset the difference can not be noticed. The music is played through the speakers situated on the back of the phone, and at higher levels (7+ of 10) it is distorted.
The phone comes preloaded with three games: Bobby Carrot (arcade game), Freekick (soccer game) and demo of Midnight Pool (8-ball game). All the three applications load up fast and are entertaining, so you can spend some minutes with them.
