The Amaze takes the best pictures I've seen to date from an HTC device. The hardware combined with the software and imaging sensors appears to have hit the Holy Trifecta when it comes to putting together an excellent camera.

Focus was sharp, white balance was spot-on, exposure was perfect, and colors looked warm and natural. I had a hard time taking crummy shots with this phone. Even images that required the flash turned out exactly right. If you're looking for a great camera on a smartphone, you should put this one at the top of your list.


The Amaze can capture video at 1080p. The video I shot was crystal clear and full of sharp details. I was actually surprised at how well the Amaze was able to focus and get things such as exposure and white balance correct. The only thing you'll notice — and this goes for all 1080p HD video — is that it can be overly sensitive to motion of the camera. You'll get the best results holding the Amaze as still as possible. Panning around creates a lot of sharp jerking that can make you sick to your stomach.

You can definitely record YouTube-worthy moments with the Amaze.
