HTC One VX review

The HTC One VX has a five-megapixel snapper that takes some pretty average snaps. Like most cell phone cameras, it does its best work outsider in bright, even light.

Indoor shots give it the most trouble, as does uneven light. It has a slew of options, such as light-enhancing HDR, to help improve picture. You can also get very precise with the settings, thanks to manual exposure and contrast adjustments.

We were impressed with the color saturation and level of detail the One VX could capture, given the right light. However, indoor shots, including those in even light, consistently came up short. Take a look at our samples below for more info:

The front facing camera is VGA resolution. It's functional.

Obviously, a 5-megapixel snapper is not going to replace anyone's dedicated camera, not even a basic point-and-shoot. While the One VX's lense performed poorly indoors, we were pleased with its outdoor work.

We'd call the One VX's camera completely average. Nothing to write home about, but not a detriment either.
