HTC 7 trophy

The 5-megapixel camera on the HTC 7 Trophy carries a lower pixel count than its brother, the HTC Mozart. However, there's no reason the Trophy shouldn't be able to product some decent pictures.

In the camera's settings, you can choose one of a number of Scene modes, including Portrait, Landscape, Sports and Macro.

You can also add effects, including Greyscale and Sepia, and change the Metering. The LED flash can be on, off or auto. Finally, there's a mode to reduce the flicker when taking photos of televisions – you can specify 50 or 60Hz.

LEAVES: Though the colours aren't bad here, there's a lack of detail in this shot, taken using the Landscape mode

LIFELESS: There's no depth or dimension to this theatre, and again there's little in the way of detail

CARVING: This is better, detail-wise, but once again looks flat

GLASS HOUSES: The colours here are pleasingly accurate, and the focus has finally managed to get something nice and crisp

CLOSE UP: While some parts of this macro shot are nice – especially the colours – there's a huge amount of digital noise in the dark pink parts, which spoils it somewhat
