You can double tap it, to quickly launch the camera and has good shutter speed. It has pro mode which is pretty rudimentary. And you can record 1080p videos with the rear camera and while the front facing camera also did a good job. Good amount of details even in the lower amount of light. And when we went outdoors, the camera did a good job.
Colors look great and vibrant and there was quite a lot of detail in the images that we took. The shots taken have good color reproduction, when we came indoors the noise levels were quite in control, overall the camera is satisfying.
