The Streak's camera

Micro-review: the camera on the Dell Streak, though it has the same megapixel count, is not at all as good as the one on the iPhone 4. I think the pictures get over-compressed, the details are all... spludgy.

Further review of the Dell Streak.

The master is a busy man with lots of important things to do.

Adjective: spludgy (comparative more spludgy, superlative most spludgy)
Alternative form of splodgy

1984, Lucy Gore, Diary of a working mum
As we were driving home, large spludgy balls of sleet drummed against the roof of the car. We had to wait a while before getting out.

2002, Daniel Richler, Kicking Tomorrow
He stamps down the stairs, leaving spludgy footsteps in the carpet behind him.

2004, Merle Thornton, After Moonlight
Discourse within discourse within — deeper and deeper in the mud till it closes over your unsuspecting head, scarcely a rising spludgy bubble to be seen.

splodge (plural splodges)
An irregular-shaped splash or smear (of liquid)

"An irregular-shaped splash or smear"

Sounds about right. The fine details are smeared.
