camera app is one of the best ones around, with easy access to important
settings. It borrows heavily from iOS but also offers more functionality, such
as a few scene modes and controls over white balance, exposure and ISO.
It has a 16mp ISOCELL Samsung sensor at the Rear and 8mp BSI sensor at the Back.
Photos look great if they aren't zoomed in to full size, but lack of
detail in textures and fuzziness around the edges of objects. Focusing is quick
and you can get some nice depth effects, but there were also times while taking
quick shots, they came out blurred. Low-light shots were difficult to get
right, especially if subjects weren't perfectly still. 4K videos came out
decent, though not especially bright or vibrant. Photos taken with the front
camera also came out a bit soft.
HDR is good,
modes works well and panorama produced very good shots .

Performance in benchmarks was excellent, with 81,445( without
SIM) , 82,414(with sim inserted ) in AnTuTu, 37,845 overall in Quadrant, 8,694 in 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme, and
28fps in GFXBench. There's plenty of power on tap no matter what kind of app
you want to run, and you should be happy for at least a few years. HD and 4K
videos play flawlessly, though sound from the built-in speaker distorts at
higher volumes.We were able to get through a full day with lots of
4G data usage and a bit of gaming as well.
