I uploaded a couple HTC One X pics that I took with my wife's phone for comparisons sake. The daytime shot shows the sunlight hitting the building and the lighting looks nice and uniform, details are also very crisp. In the night shot, while not incredibly detailed the lighting looks pretty natural. Both were taken in Auto mode.
I see some problems with the 8X shots here. At night the lights on the street and even in the building are putting off some major glare...they look like beams. Even the day shots seem like they are glowing. Was the 8X using default settings?
The One X and 8X are supposed to have the same camera, so I am wondering what is going on here.
