Testing the LG Spectrum's 8-megapixel camera (photos)
The LG Spectrum boasts an 8-megapixel camera, and its photos look great on the smartphone's 4.5-inch 720p HD display. Let's see how it did in our hands.
Put the camera to the test
Like many other juiced-up smartphones these days, the LG Spectrum packs an 8-megapixel camera. Photos usually look great on a 4.5-inch HD display like the Spectrum's, but how about when you blow them up on the computer screen or TV? The following photos were taken with the phone's automatic settings. They've been resized, but are otherwise untouched.

No wonder CNET Download.com editor Jaymar Cabebe is upset. He's washed out and blurry after the second attempt to capture him on the Spectrum. No flash, but there was pretty good indirect light streaming from nearby windows.
