The rear camera is 5MP resolution with LED flash and there is a front camera too of VGA resolution. The still images are very good; you can check the sample images at the end of this review. The 5MP camera can record videos in 1080p resolution and the front camera can record in VGA resolution. Front camera still picture quality is below average. The FHD video recording is very good. You can shoot images when the video recording mode is on.

Gaming and Entertainment
The hardware is powerful and it can play many high end games. I tried the pre-installed game called Rail Rush that is similar to the Temple Run game. You can check the game play in the video review. The game play was very smooth.

Others
No issues with 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The speaker / in-call sound is very loud and clear. GPS with GLONASS gives an almost instant lock – even works indoors.

3400 mAh Battery
The battery of 3400 mAh capacity is built-in. You can remove the back cover and access the SIM / Micro SD slots but you will not be able to see the battery as it’s completely sealed. On a full charge you can expect talk-time of up to 21 hours on 3G and 25 hours on 2G networks.
