Samsung Galaxy SIII Demo Video: Camera Gesture Shortcut

Cameras in mobile phones are becoming really powerful. The latest top end phones have the ability to render the classic compact digital useless. Why carry both a phone and a camera, when the phone takes just as good, maybe even better photos than the camera?

As such, it's extremely important that your mobile phone allows you to quickly and easily get to the camera app so you can take a photo. If this takes too long, or is a hassle, well it doesn;t matter how good the camera itself is because you just won't use it. Samsung have attempted to make it easier to open the camera through the use of a gesture via the lockscreen. It isn't as useful as a physical button on the phone (I really wish this came as standard tbh...), but it does help.
