If you like this photo I took of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, there's more where that came from. In fact, I took it with another Galaxy Note 2's 8-megapixel camera.
All photos were taken on automatic mode. Unless stated, photos have been resized and/or cropped, but are otherwise untouched.
Bright sunlight helps this vivacious pink flower thrive through the Note 2's lens.
A sample of the full-resolution version of the pink flower shows that the Note 2's camera has photographic smartphone chops.
Crisp edges and bursting color showcases these true-to-life petals just right.
Here's a segment of the same image, in its full-resolution.
Everyone's moving around in this candid outdoor shot at a pop-up outdoor roller rink, and while the scene isn't as sharp or completely well-defined as it would be of a stationary object, the Note 2 did a good job nonetheless.
CNET editor Antuan Goodwin mugs for the Note 2's camera in CNET's indoor cafe, in mixed indoor and outdoor lighting.
The whiteboard sign to CNET's indoor cafe, the Breakroom, looks a little more yellowed and dull than it does in real life.
I wasn't entirely pleased with this indoor photo of a shuffleboard table and the coffee bar behind it. The sign's edges were sharp and well-defined, but the foreground seemed a bit dark.
Though focused on the pucks and the board, this image didn't turn out entirely in focus.
I wanted to see how well the Note 2 handled outdoor portraits. This photo, taken in the high noon sun, captured natural-looking colors and shadows.
The 8-megapixel Note 2 camera took to water, too. Droplets looked relatively distinct, and I love the way the water looks streaming down the outside of the fountain. Unfortunately, the camera didn't capture the prismatic rainbow between the two far-left streams.
There's a sun flare at the top right, and an overly aqua green within the sculpture, but if I had taken this photo of a friend while on vacation, I'd be pretty happy.
The Note 2's Super AMOLED display errs on the side of oversaturation, but these petals' rich hues look just as vibrant on the computer or laptop screen.
The bright bloom retains defined edges, shadows, light, and texture even in full-resolution.
