Galaxy Note 7 camera closeupNew swiping gestures make Samsung's Note 7 camera more interactive.
Every camera feature from the Galaxy S7 is all ready in Samsung new Note 7 phone. But this stylist thing are takes the camera control further by adding support for gesture. Now, you can swipe right to bring a filters and swipe left for other menu item. To move between fun and rare cameras just swipe up or down The menu grid makes it easy to see the effect in real time so, you can quickly choose the filter at it's best without any second gas thing. The note 7, 12 mega pixel camera took clean Crist photos in my touch shot and you still get that optional screen flash for selfies. There a lot of slider control to pin pointing mean intensity of those filters too But there is a trick to swiping and if you don't do it just so, you're not going to get the menu you want, which can be really frustrating. When I held the phone in landscape, I sometimes accidentally tapped the back and recent button, which kicked me out of the app. So then, I had to start over again. Moral of the story, the new gestures are good overall but watch where you rest those fingers. [MUSIC]
