Ok, so I have the C550 now and I can start to do the review I mentioned a few days back. There’s one thing I’ve learned about doing reviews – and that’s to never do a review straight away. It’s like a new car. Sometimes you get so annoyed because you can’t turn the fog lights off. They’re not in the same place as the old car, and you keep knocking into 2nd instead of 5th gear. So, lemme get used to this new box of tricks first :)
The first thing I wanted to do with the handset was to test the mega pixel camera. I took a photo of a desk in the office, directly into sunlight (which, as any photographer will tell you, isn’t a good idea) to see how it would be handled. I also took one outside on both phones and one of the C550 box. The results can be seen below. The C550 is notably better and seems to add a “gloss” quality to the shots.
