    My first day with the 8X today. Had a long ride today (100km) so didn't really get a chance to play. But here are some pics i took (Albeit slightly rushed)















    Very happy with the performance. Very very good. I still don't understand why HTC make their phones so that the focus is made before the flash. It should focus with the flash on, because at the moment shots with flash are just blurry and annoying.

    EDIT: Forgot to add, a 1080P Test, and the unboxing. It's long and i ramble but if you stick through it well done!

    Unboxing -
    1080P HD Test -

    Thanks for the pictures! They look great!

    One question though, I noticed that a lot of people had issues with the Flash. And as alexbaldwin said, it focuses before the flash.

    Any chance that this issue can be fixed in a software update by HTC in the future if ever? Or is it in the hardware side?

    Thanks!

    Adding some more low lightshots https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...JVQ5ByhX3j5JBw

    Looks like changing the ISO manually rresults in better low light performance.

    Certainly nothing stunning, but it'll do.

    If you want "stunning" buy a N8 or N808 or even better a actual camera otherwise all you will ever get is "it'll do".

    Well, my statement assumed a baseline of available smartphones; both the iPhone 5 and the GS3 (as well as the aforementioned Pureview 808) best these results handily. That said, I generally agree with you. A DSLR is for the shots you need.

    That said, it's not a bad thing to have a good camera available for the shots you don't expect.

    Actually I have seen a number of reviews saying the 8X beats the GS3 when it comes to the camera and its pretty much around the same as the iPhone 5.

    But all of these are fine for a phone camera but none are going to be amazing because of their tiny sensors etc which is where the 808 is great because they increased the sensor size which is very important.

    Well, considering i have all three, i suppose i am most suitable to judge.

    iPhone5 > 8X > SGS3 in daylight

    iPhone5 > SGS3 > 8X in lowlight

    8X > SGS3 > iPhone 5 in macro.

    Forget about the phone, I'm seriously and painfully jealous of your routes! I'd never get off my bike. :D

    Haha. Problem is, i have to ride about 60km to get to places like this. So the majority of my ride is still through horrible towns :L

    I took this picture today in a bowling alley. I thought it came out pretty good considering the low light. One thing I'll say is that I changed the ISO setting to 400. In auto, it would probably use the highest iso of 800 and that would cause lots of noise. For those that don't know, lower ISO number = less noise, but you can only take pics in bright light or sunlight. high ISO = lots of noise, but you can take pictures in low light.

    I'm not sure if I'll get a replacement or give the 920 a go (if they have any). Might just get a refund and wait for a while.
    Kindle app has been fixed. Delete the one you have and re-install and you'll be all set.

    The camera is another story of course. If you want a comparison, check the 920 pictures thread. I posted a few there on page 13.

    ya, I was pretty impressed considering it was a night game with big bright spot lights to deal with.

    An example of an HTC 8X photo. My experience seems to echo most people's...day time snaps are perfectly acceptable, sometimes pretty impressive...night time pictures lacking something. And yes, HTC need to sort the flash/focus issue!
