HTC 8XT Review
HTC has likely recycled the 8MP camera found on the 8X. It features HTC’s ImageSense technology, backside illumination and an f/2.0 aperture lens, which are carry-overs from last year’s One X flagship.
The overall camera interface is clean and well done, but overall the focus/capture process was longer than we’d like. We continue to appreciate the physical shutter button, which can be used to launch the camera even when the device is sleeping. This time around HTC added a burst shooting mode, but it only available when using the HTC Camera app...yes, there are two camera apps out of the box here.
The camera does a fine job in good lighting, displaying good color reproduction and acceptable detail levels. It still suffers from graining in poor lighting, something that HTC’s new Ultrapixel cameras found on the One and One Mini have improved. Videos can be recorded at 1080p, and produced displayed the same strengths and weaknesses seen in still images.
HTC 8XT Sample Video:
The 8XT played all of our test files just fine, although it didn’t recognize the embedded album art in out music. Music sounds good through both the BoomSound speakers and the included headphones.
As mentioned earlier, the decreased screen resolution is more noticeable in areas such as video playback, but at least the 8XT was able to handle the various file formats we threw at it.
