The lens is fixed and offers no optical zoom, only a 4x digital zoom. The placement of the lens and flash to one side of the body makes it easy to accidentally block them with a finger. Similarly, you'll need to avoid pressing the power button on the top while holding the Infuse 4G with one hand.

Five menu options line the left side of the screen when taking photos: Flash, Self-Shot, Shooting Mode, Exposure Value, and Settings.

In movie recording mode, the five icons lining the left of the screen access the following video recording options: Recording Mode, Flash On/Off, Exposure Value, Resolution, and Settings.

The settings menu in movie mode allows you to change a number of settings: the screen's Outdoor Visibility (brightness) on/off; Timer (off, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds); White Balance (auto, daylight, cloudy, incandescent, fluorescent); Effect (normal, negative, black and white, or sepia); Video Quality (superfine, fine, normal); and to adjust the contrast, saturation and sharpness.

The playback menu allows you to share photos, set a photo as a contact icon or wallpaper, and, under the More menu, to send a photo to an online locker or delete it.

The Share menu gives you links to AllShare, Bluetooth, Facebook, Gmail, Messaging and Picasa. The number of apps that will allow you to share photos and videos will all depend on which apps you have installed on the device.
