Well, it's been few days now, and I'm still unhappy with my new Samsung Omnia 7. If it wasn't for my passion to learn more about this new OS and seek for the good things with it – I would probably put it for sale already, and I'm not kidding!
This time I would like to talk about the camera. Supposedly a good 5 megapixel camera, but the thing is that the end pictures are simply not good.
90% of the pictures are blurred, but it's done in a sophisticated way: It focuses just fine when you are about to take the picture, but then when you take it, the picture goes from sharp to blurry.
That's just annoying.
After trying all the options and settings, I found that if I set the picture sharpness to maximum, and set the anti shaking to 'On', the results are much better – but guess what: in WP7 like in WP7, nothing is really that simple: the settings of the camera are not saved (another known limitation).
So dear Ballmer, although you bragged about having a hardware camera button for fast open of the camera – this is actually the slowest device to take a decent picture, as before taking the picture, you need to manually change some settings (which are never saved) in order to allow taking a picture which is not blurred.
