Did a quick search for the phone and didn`t spot a thread. From day 1 I was and still am really impressed with what pictures it takes. There was an initial "pink halo" effect against a white wall but soon realised with research it wasn`t the phone, just phone cameras and sensors in general.

Anybody else impressed with the camera? It has now got fancy effects thanks to android 4 but not yet used. Technology has come a long way, a nice little point and shoot, in fact better than the wife`s Panasonic point and shoot camera. She also has the phone though...

Photographer friends who have Galaxy S2 phones report the same thing, that the S2's camera is very impressive and they no longer need to carry a compact camera. It's also a killer Android phone as well.

I would definitely agree about the phone, plus the editing software that comes with the phone is excellent. It takes a bit of getting used to, particularly if you have sausage fingers. With little practice though you can highlight and mask areas, single out colours and add blur very easily. Below are a couple of photos taken and edited all on my phone.

Download Dropbox and link your phone to it. Set to only upload via wifi, then your phone will upload them when you get home! No need to keep them on the phone or lose them.

The memory in the galaxy series of phones is the same as an SD card, just without the plastic casing. Try using a standard recovery programme and you may be surprised at what comes back.
I've just upgraded to the S3, and it's great. The camera is quite impressive. It's got the same hardware as the S2, with a few clever software enhancements.
