Palm Treo 755p Reviews

Brighthand reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “The camera interface is the same as what is found on the Treo 680. Simply put, you get buttons to take a picture and whether to set the zoom 1x or 2x. Nothing complicated there. Shutter speed is increased, and the default setting is that the shutter sound is not made. The Camcorder is listed as a separate application but can be accessed from the Camera application. Videos are recorded at 320-by-240-pixel (QVGA) resolution. You can save videos and images either to internal memory or to a miniSD memory card (up to 4 GB supported). Overall, both the camera and camcorder are suitable, but not groundbreaking. Both images and videos created on the 755p are easily able to be sent via email and MMS (Sprint’s Picture Mail) with one click from the camera screen.”

CNET reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “Last but not least, we’re glad the Treo 755p didn’t follow in the Treo 680’s footsteps and upgraded to a 1.3-megapixel camera rather than a VGA camera. There’s a 2x zoom and video-recording capabilities, but it lacks a flash and any options for tweaking the white balance, resolution, brightness, and so forth. As a result, picture quality was sub par. Objects were defined clearly but there was a dull, greyish overtone to the images.”

LaptopMag has a review of the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “Spec for spec, the Treo 755p is nearly identical to its predecessor, which is a bit disappointing considering that the 700p launched nearly a year ago. The 312-MHz XScale processor is still plenty speedy, the 2.5-inch display still plenty bright and crisp, and the 60MB of available memory still enough to store plenty of Palm OS applications. However, we would have preferred support for Sprint’s faster EV-DO Rev. A network instead of EV-DO Rev. 0, which would allow for much faster upload speeds. And the lack of stereo Bluetooth in 2007 is pretty much inexcusable, although a $19.99 piece of software from Softick adds this capability. The 1.3-megapixel camera continues to capture decent photos but blurry videos.”

MobileBurn reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “While the Palm Treo 755p is not exactly built with multimedia in mind, it does a fairly good job at it none the less. For starters, the 1.3 megapixel camera on-board performs much better than did similar units on prior Treos. The lens showed a bit of corner distortion, but in general the images were colourful, bright, and reasonably sharp. The included pTunes music player application also does a pretty good job of turning the Treo into a portable music player. The application can run in background mode, supports playlists, and worked with all of the MP3 files that I copied over on the miniSD card. An upgraded version can be purchased that plays more formats, such as WMA.”

MobileTechReview reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “The Treo 755p’s 1.3 megapixel camera is a bit outdated. Though if you are upgrading from the Treo 650 and the Treo 700p, you will find that the camera on the Treo 755p has improved with less noise and sharper photos. Photos taken in good lighting conditions look sharp by 1.3 megapixel standards and colours look balanced. There isn’t any noticeable colour cast. Indoor shots with good to medium lighting conditions also have good quality. Some indoor shots with lower lighting show loss of colour, but not as much noise as the photos taken with last generation Treos. Likely the camera reduced a little too much colour while trying to reduce noise (common in camera phones). Photos taken in strong sunlight show white out in light-colour areas or objects.”

PCMag reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “The 1.3-megapixel camera produced lab photos remarkably similar to the 700p’s, even though they were taken a year apart. The shots seem dim and unsaturated, though bright areas are blown out. There’s also a wobbly 352-by-288 video mode. You can store your images (and MP3 music for the included pTunes music player) on a MiniSD card in a slot on the side, a step down from the 700p’s standard SD slot.”

SlashGear reviews the Palm Treo 755p and writes, “The 1.3 megapixel camera takes decent photos while the camcorder mode shoots at 352-by-288 videos at 13 frames per second. I like how you can save the length of whatever memory you have on the system or memory card. … I’m awarding the Treo 755p 4 ½ out of 5 gears as well as SlashGear’s Editor’s Choice.”
