I find that the shortcut keys are useful for both the camera and video recording modes. One gripe is the on-screen dial mode that simulates the actual camera dial, which I find is a UI gimmick and not user friendly. I spend a lot of time scrolling one item at a time, and there are quite a lot of items to scroll to. I would prefer an option to change to a menu view.
The Viewty Smart is a phone with smart camera functions found only in some of the latest compact camera models, but what I really like is the level of image manipulation. I also had my share of fun with the motion-sensor games. The Viewty Smart will be a great device for photo bloggers who can capture images, edit, and post it online without leaving their phone off their eyes.
