Like so many phones these days, the L1150 comes with a built-in VGA camera. Shots can be taken in five resolutions (640x480, 320x240, 160x120, 128x160, and 45x80); mostly, they are par for the course, but there are a number of image-control settings. You get a multiple-shot (up to nine pictures in succession), white balance, brightness control, image effect, and a 2X digital zoom. These options are a nice way to tweak photos on the handset, but as with most camera phones, the overall picture quality wasn't anything we would want to print out. There's also a choice of three shutter sounds, plus a silent option. Once finished, photos can be saved to the handset's memory, stored as wallpaper, paired with contacts, or sent via a multimedia message.
Web access and applications come through via AT&T's mMode service and WAP 2.0 wireless Web browser, which delivers GPRS data transmission. The phone isn't loaded with any games or applications, but you can download them from mMode for a fee. The screen can be customized with five built-in wallpaper choices, or you can download more, along with ring tones.
