Great 8MP camera

The Samsung Galaxy Grand comes with an 8MP camera capable of capturing photos at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. It has an LED flash to assist it in low lighting conditions.

The interface is virtually the same as on the Galaxy S III. On the right there's the still camera / camcorder switch, a virtual shutter key and the gallery shortcut (which is a thumbnail of the last photo taken).

On the left, you get several controls and the good news is that you can pick any four shortcuts to put there - its lets you easily have all frequently used features just a tap away.

The fifth shortcut always points to Settings. You can also move the icons around to your liking.

The camera interface

The Grand has an extensive set of features: touch focus, smile shot, continuous shot, panorama mode and can snap photos during video recording (but at only 720p resolution, basically a frame from the video). What's missing is HDR.

The actual images taken are good, but lack in dynamic range. We've taken a few side-by-side shots with the Galaxy S III, where you'll see some better developed shadows on the flagship. Dynamic range aside, the camera quality is nearly identical, providing good color rendering and detail.
