Review: HTC Vivid for AT&T
Images captured with the Vivid are very good, but just short of excellent. In most cases, focus is sharp and images are clear. The one problem I saw most often was washed-out colors, though only on in-door shots. While white balance and exposure were accurate, the problem seemed to be related to contrast (too much gray in the images). No matter how much I futzed with the controls, I couldn't correct it. Images capture out in full sunshine were almost always spot on in every respect. You'll be happy to share most images you capture with the Vivid.
The Vivid captures video at a maximum of 1080p HD. It looks really, really good indoors and out. Colors, focus, exposure, and white balance are all accurate, and it manages to avoid the jittery effect that's sometimes noticeable on HD video cameras when they are panned about. These videos will look good on your HDTV.
