The interface is flying - lag is barely there, only when you flip through homescreens loaded with widgets, and the dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos chipset carries its duties with pride.

camera resolution

The indoor shots came out quite detailed as well, the 8MP sensor's low light sensitivity is good, while the LED flash does well, if you are fairly close to the subject.
