In­stead of join­ing the megapixel war, Samsung has worked on the cam­era optics. We think the com­pany has man­aged to do an ex­cel­lent job. The iPhone’s pop­u­lar HDR mode has now made its way to the Galaxy SIII. When turned on, the cam­era cap­tures two im­ages—one to take the dark tones into ac­count, the other the lighter ar­eas and com­bines them into a bet­ter photo then ei­ther. The zero shut­ter lag, burst shot with best photo and still im­age cap­ture while shoot­ing videos—fea­tures made pop­u­lar by the HTC One X—are also here. Then there is the face tag fea­ture, which recog­nises pho­tos from the con­tact list and is fur­ther linked to ‘buddy share’ that makes shar­ing pho­tos much eas­ier. Wish the phone had a ded­i­cated cam­era key and we could use the cam­era while tak­ing calls.
