    Incredulously enough, no other major camera maker has come out and mimicked Samsung's front-facing LCD approach found on the TL225 (or ST550 in some areas), so if you're in the market, it's either this one or the lesser-specced TL220 (ST500). If you're considering picking up the former as a bang-up gift for your special someone, you'd probably do yourself a solid by taking a peek at a few reviews around the web. The long and short of it is this: the camera's dual LCDs are well implemented, and they actually do come in handy for those looking to handle the "self-portrait" duties in the relationship. Beyond that, however, there wasn't a lot of praise to go around. For starters, the camera relies only on microSD memory, so those spare SD cards you've got laying around are no good here. Then there's the so-so image quality coupled with the staggeringly weak battery life; Photography Blog was only able to squeeze out around 100 shots while making heavy use of the touchscreen. Everyone seemed to agree that the cam wasn't for everyone, so be sure and take a look around before committing.
