Boasting the new minimum camera requirement of the smartphone sector, the HTC One V's inbuilt 5 megapixel snapper is capable of capturing shots with a 2592 x 1944p image resolution, with snaps further enhanced by the phone's incorporated autofocus and LED flash capabilities.

Far more than your standard point and shoot snapper, the HTC One V, like its similarly branded counterparts, has a wide selection of image enhancing software features, with a simple drop-down menu enabling you to give your images a bevy of tweaks and in-shot alterations.

You can choose between greyscale, negative or vintage filters or opt to have snaps distorted, with enhanced depth of field or a pop art-mimicking dots look.

Although capable of producing a selection of visually impressive images, the HTC One V's inbuilt snapper is often a little over-eager, with the handset's touchscreen capture button proving slightly quick on the draw and barely offering the camera time to determine the perfect levels of focus before snapping shut to capture what can at times be less than pin sharp images.

This minor pitfall could quite easily be corrected with the use of a physical shutter button that focuses shots on a half depression before capturing images with a full click, like a standalone camera. But in looking for a sleek, untainted form factor, HTC has overlooked this potentially simple inclusion.

While the lack of a second, forward-facing might, on paper, look like a glaring omission on HTC's part, in reality its only for using VoIP applications such as Skype when such a feature is truly missed.

Although this hardware omission is sure to put some potential users off plumping for the HTC smartphone, on the whole the decision not to plump for the little used second camera is one that has helped keep the cost of the HTC One V low and in a competitive area of the market.
