We have a phone that now works
So its time to show off those photos with our sexy omnivision sensor
and yes the photos look better than something taken on a fisher's price camera

Without further ado...









What about your pics? Do you use the DVP to take pics?

Chicago, Eh? I will be over in that city soon...

My pictures aren't as good as domineus's, I have a shaky hand when holding the dvp camera (usually take pictures with a DSLR)

EDIT: I forgot, I took these pictures while traveling in England.

What settings are you using, are they making a difference?

depends on conditions
lower lighting I use iso of 4 or 8 depends though
surprisingly indoors, I just use tungsten or fluorescent

thats one huge reason why i liked in previous os versions you couldn't save settings. Ideally, because the shot changes, I would want a new set of settings (as long as it was default to 5 mp I'm a happy camper, samsung focus users on the other hand begged for the camera saving settings)

The camera is surprisingly more usable now, and really shines in outdoor photos. I'll try your iso settings when I'm inside.

One thing I hate, with all of my heart, is the white striping over the flash. It's printed on the plastic that is attached to the battery cover. It ruins pictures that use the flash, especially when the subject is medium-close. You just see these really ugly yellow-white bars over the image. It's a real dealbreaker so I try not to use the flash at all.

I've been planning my attack to remove it without removing the entire plastic piece. The stripes feel slightly raised, but i'm sure it can be sanded down and cleaned with a light solvent. Anyone got any ideas?

What's the use of the white stripe? Does it disperse the flash evenly to prevent harsh tones?

Not sure of its intended purpose. Plenty of other phones just have the LED under a clear plastic cover and they take pictures just fine. It's almost as if it was put there to intentionally ruin shots with the flash!
