Shooting with the Samsung Galaxy S5's 16-megapixel camera (pictures)
We took the Galaxy S5's updated app and camera optics for a spin from the MWC show floor.
Putting the Galaxy S5's camera to the test
The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs a 16-megapixel camera and some cool new software features within its native camera app. At Mobile World Congress, I spent a long time getting to know them both. And yes, I took this photo of the copper GS5 with another GS5.
CNET mobile editor Brian Bennett helps me ham it up for this shot on the Galaxy S5's 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone automatically applies the Beauty Face mode that airbrushes skin and often makes faces look better up close.
This mode lets you choose to focus on the foreground, background, or focus evenly across the image. Here, I've focused on the cup of tea in Samsung PR representative Jessica Baker's hand. It takes longer to process the shot when you use this mode.
