As has been mentioned, the LG Prime isn’t a smartphone at all, but a few of its standard multimedia features let people think of it as one. It has a 2MP camera including more than the standard number of settings. Such as, users have the option of picking from 3 quality modes, 3 color effects and more to augment the image quality. Unfortunately, the quality of the photos isn’t great. The sharpness remains missing from the photos. They’re grey and dull. Plus, the video mode only allows you to record videos at 176 x 144 or 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA or QCIF).
