Review: HTC Freestyle
The Freestyle's camera captures a maximum of 3 megapixels. Without auto-focus, I tempered my expectations and the Freestyle just about matched them. Focus is all over the place. Some times it is spot on, but more often than not it was a bit soft. The Freestyle produced few images with razor-clean clarity. Almost every image I captured was chock full of grain/noise. On the plus side, white balance was typically accurate, as was color representation. Low-light performance was definitely lacking. Almost any shot I took indoors was a grainy disaster, out-of-focus, and generally useless. I'd rate these photos as MMS worthy, but not much beyond that.
The Freestyle offers a maximum video capture resolution of HVGA (320 x 480). Amazingly, the video camera allows users to pick which file format the Freestyle saves videos in. The choices are MPEG-4, H.263 and H.264.

Set to the maximum resolution and quality, the Freestyle did a poor job of capturing video. It adjusted to light changes well, but movement is blurred all over the place and there's far more grain than I like to see. Colors are about right, as is white balance, but the overall results are definitely lacking. MMS worthy? Maybe. YouTube worthy? No.
