Review: HTC myTouch 4G Slide
The images I captured with the 4G Slide were very good, but just short of excellent. Colors looked good, white balance was typically spot on, and exposure was perfect in most cases. What is it that bugged me? Focus. I noticed that a lot of images I took were not quite as sharp as they should have been. Bear in mind, I am being really picky here. You don't really notice it until you blow them up big on a computer screen. On the phone, they'll look great, and they are certainly worth sharing.
The extra features work as they are supposed to. See the two white flower shots below. I took the first with the camera set to Auto and the second with it set to HDR. You can see how the detail comes out of the shadows in the HDR shot.
Images were free of grain for the most part, and the dual-LED flash does a great job of lighting things up in dark rooms. You may just get a good shot of your friends at that dinner party.

The 4G Slide captures video up to a full 1080p HD. That's ridiculous. The resulting files are enormous (1 minute = ~100MB), and you can chew through a memory card really, really, fast. It's worth it, though, because the video looks great. I was surprised at how clear everything was in my results. The colors, white balance, and exposure are all accurate, and the sharpness is crazy good.
The videos will definitely be worth sharing — especially on your HDTV.
