Taking shots with the Sprint Flash (pictures)

The Sprint Flash from ZTE has a 12-megapixel camera, but after taking it out for a spin in San Francisco, we see that it disappoints.

A quick coffee break

Although it sports a 12-megapixel camera, the Sprint Flash takes unimpressive photos. Here, a simple scene in front of a coffee shop is washed out on the left.

OK, don't move now

Not everything is a loss, however. Mannequins are sharp and in focus in this photo, and colors are accurately depicted.

White poinsettias

The dark hues on the leaves underneath the flower petals are hard to distinguish.

At the museum

Hardly any information was captured at all underneath the cubed building on the left.

Blown-out sky

Again, the sky is washed out on the left, but the building and the metal sculpture are in focus.

A whale of a tale

This photo of a fence mural has colors that are true-to-life.

Bright-red bloom

The bright-red hues of this flower are completely washed out and indistinguishable.

Ornament sighting on Second Street

Here, the details in the Christmas tree leaves are sharp with well-defined edges.

An orchid arrangement

The white balance depicted in these orchid petals are accurate.

Watch for magenta and red

As we've already seen before, the bright flower petals are highly saturated and washed out.

Stepping on water

This photo of the Contemporary Jewish Museum's front courtyard is one of the handful of good photos from the Sprint Flash.

In front of Bloomingdales

For the mannequin on the bottom right, the dark hues in its clothing are hard to make out.

Party with the pants

Though pant colors are vibrant, the white pair on the right is blown out.
