Review: HTC Titan II for AT&T
Not many phones have 16-megapixel sensors. The benefit of a higher megapixel count is that you can blow images up to large prints that still look reasonably good. Honestly, I would have prefered if HTC spent the money on better low-light capabilities than the larger sensor.
Photos look good, but not markedly better than any 8-megapixel cameraphone. Focus was consistently sharp, colors looked accurate, and the images were free of grain/noise. With good lighting the T2 takes really good photos, and even when there's barely any light, the dual-LED flash is bright enough to ward off vampires.

Even though it has a 16-megapixel camera sensor, the T2 is still limited to 720p HD video capture. This is Microsoft's fault, not HTC's, and it needs to change. Nearly every other high-end device handles 1080p HD video, but not Windows Phones.
That said, the T2 produced good video results. Exposure, color, focus, and all that were accurate the majority of the time. You'll be happy sharing the videos via YouTube and other web-based channels, though it's not as stellar on an 1080p HD TV.
