How to shoot full-resolution photos and videos with your HTC phone on Sense UI
Thanks partially to the dedicated HTC ImageChip, the company's phones also offer instant shot-to-shot times in Normal mode, even on low-end devices with budget processors. There are certainly a few quirks with the camera app right out of the box, however, which we would like to address. Namely these are the default settings which come with your HTC phone out of the box.
If you have an 8 MP camera on your HTC handset, for instance, the phone actually doesn't use the full resolution, but rather shoots with wide 16:9 ratio that peruses 6 MP. Moreover, the video is set to record in 960x540 qHD resolution, even if your HTC device is capable of 1080p Full HD video recording. Here's how to remedy these glaring omissions, and unleash the full potential of your HTC phone's camera.
