Review: HTC EVO Shift 4G

The EVO Shift 4G's 5 megapixel shooter was mostly accurate with exposure, white balance and color. The flash isn't as good as I've seen on other HTC devices, but it does a reasonably good job of making sure your friends' faces have some color on them and aren't a fuzzy mess when you take pictures in the (near) dark. Sometimes faces have a slight blue tint, but mostly they looked OK.

Shots taken in the Great Outdoors also look good. Images were sharp and accurate, and there was little grain. You'll be more than satisfied to share these images via Facebook and Flickr, though it probably isn't going to suffice for taking family portraits.

The EVO Shift 4G can capture video at 720p. Videos look good. Colors are mostly right, focus is good, and there is little waviness or ghosting. The EVO Shift 4G isn't going to replace a dedicated camcorder, but it definitely records YouTube and MMS-worthy clips.
