Review: HTC Rhyme for Verizon Wireless
The Rhyme's 5-megapixel shooter was mostly accurate with exposure, white balance and color. Focus was surprisingly good, and the Rhyme could take close-up shots (macro) that were crisp and detailed. The camera handled lighting changes well. It took consistently good pictures outdoors and indoors.
The photos are definitely worth sharing with friends through the social network and/or image sharing service of your choice.

The Rhyme can capture video at a maximum resolution of 720p. The video I shot was crystal clear and full of sharp details. I was actually surprised at how well the Rhyme was able to focus and get things such as exposure and white balance correct. The other not-too-common feature offered by the Rhyme is the ability to record stuff that plays back in slow motion. It records at double speed and then plays back at normal speed. I wish this feature were more prevalent. It's not always useful, but it sure opens the door for some creativity.
You can definitely record YouTube-worthy moments with the Rhyme.
