Review: HTC Arrive
The images I captured with the Arrive's 5 megapixel camera were decent for a 5 megapixel camera, but not extraordinary. Outdoor images were sharp, crisp, and colorful. Indoor shots were grainier, and focus was a little inconsistent. They were also duller. The flash helped somewhat, but didn't make up entirely for poor lighting.
Will people want to share these images? Absolutely. They look good more often than they look bad. Facebook sharing? You betcha. Email and MMS? Sure. The Arrive overall does a good job, though other camera phones perform better.

The video I shot with the Arrive was much more consistent that what I captured with the HTC Surround and LG Quantum. It was almost universally "good." Colors looked rich and bright, and grain was thankfully less noticeable.
Are these videos YouTube worthy? Sure.
