HTC Camera Phone

People who like photography have learned to stay away from the traditionally woeful camera smartphones. So it was with justified trepidation that Esquire tested HTC’s new flagship mobile, the One X. Amazingly, it delivered on the promise of being a thoroughly decent option for happy snappers. A new image chip lets the 8MP camera boot up in 0.7secs, while autofocus is faster than the blink of an eye at 0.2secs. So no more shots of the action just after what you wanted to record has ended.

There’s more: a “burst mode” lets you take a quick series of shots with the processor selecting the best pictures taken; cleverly it can take stills while filming video; and HTC has thrown in 25GB of free online Dropbox storage for two years — so there’ll be no running out of memory.  (Price subject to contract, HTC)
