HTC Touch2 Review

Camera and Multimedia:

Windows phones that are able to take pictures with good quality are extremely rare and unfortunately, the HTC Touch2 is no exception to the rule. Its 3.2-megapixel camera lacks autofocus and flash and delivers standard options such as control over brightness, white balance, various effects and self-portrait mode. The maximum video capture resolution is CIF.

On the overall, colors tend to be saturated and relatively pleasing. The major problem is blurry images and even a slight twitch leads to exceptionally fuzzy pictures and this is really bad since they don’t have enough details anyway. All told, getting proper results using the camera of the HTC Tocuh2 involves certain special skills, including unruffled calm and the hand of a sharpshooter. The videos are mediocre and overly dark.

HTC equip their handsets with personalized audio player and we like it better than Windows Media Player. The loudspeaker of the device is a weak and crackling when going at full blast, but you will be able to relish really pleasing sound (deep, loud and clear) the minute you plug in a pair of decent headphones. Not that the boxed earphones are bad really, but they lack basses. You will have to connect a pair to the phone if you feel like listening to radio. Speaking of which, it comes with RDS and looks really cool.

The HTC Touch2 delivers proper playback of MP4/H.264 videos with QVGA or lower resolution only. The 2.8-inch display offers decent image quality, so if you intend to watch videos on regular, you better get Core Player - it handles both DivX and Xvid files without a hitch.
