Photos looked lush on the LG Nitro HD's 1,280x720-pixel display, but a little less so when viewed on a ho-hum computer screen. Here's a shot of a tree. Colors looked good, but I was hoping for photos sharp enough to cut you. All photos in this slideshow were taken in auto mode and resized, but are otherwise untouched. (Read our full LG Nitro HD review.)

Colors looked good in this outdoor shot, but do you see that royal blue halo surrounding the fence links? Yeah, the Nitro HD added it all by itself.

Notice the fuzziness around this adorable canine face? A 3-second shutter lag kept producing blurry photos of this friendly tail-wagger. I was lucky that he stood still long enough for me to capture this shot. That's a camera flaw without question.

Good idea: take a photo of delicious-looking cakes to drool over later on. Bad idea: use this camera for indoor shots, because much is lost in this dull, flat translation.

Shots bathed in light are usually better as a rule. I liked the color balance here. The colors were a bit pumped up, but I liked seeing individual flower "feathers," a point in the Nitro's favor.

This was the best photo of my test shoot. The Nitro HD perfectly captured the vibrant colors and textures of the paint and its underlying wall.

If you're going to use a video chat app like Qik, or take a self-portrait, this is the camera you use. It does pretty well with its 1.3-megapixel output, but notice that my hair is more in focus than my face, despite my face being the center of the shot.

CNET mobile reporter Roger Cheng shot the bar at the LG Nitro launch event, taken indoors on auto mode. Nitro HD: 0, "Party" lighting: 1.

These boxes of HDTVs didn't come out looking HD-quality in this indoor test shot at the LG Nitro HD launch event.

One of the first shots we took with the phone; this was also shot indoors in lower lighting.

The Nitro HD, top, shows a smoother rendering. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, on the bottom, has more pixelation along the belly. The Galaxy Nexus also has a full HD display.

They're close, but the Nitro HD (top) shows deeper greens and slightly richer reds.

The HD screenshot is almost identical on the two phones, but not quite. Look closely and you'll see that the Nitro HD (top) has blacker blacks in the clouds and corners, and more wave detail where the light rests on the water's surface.
