Review: HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE for Verizon Wireless
The Incredible's camera takes images at up to 8 megapixels. Given what I saw with the One X and One S, I was hoping for better results. Generally speaking, the images I captured were decent, but there were all sorts of problems when you look at the lot of them together. Several had white balance problems. Others had exposure problems. Others had good exposure and white balance, but soft focus. The Incredible still manages to take good pictures, but not as consistently as I'd like.
Video capture outperformed still capture, for sure. The video I shot was clean, in focus, had good white balance, and was properly exposed. The Incredible's video camera did as well as you could expect with dramatic changes in lighting, and there was no jitters or ghosting. I did notice some odd sound problems from time to time, as you hear at the very beginning of the video below.
