The HTC Windows Phone 8S can't quite manage full HD video, but it can at least shoot in 720p.

It has roughly the same selection of settings as the camera; you can change the white balance, saturation, sharpness and contrast, turn the light on or off and use different 'lenses'.

As with the camera there are a few effects, such as sepia and grayscale, however there aren't any scene modes. The dedicated camera button comes in handy, making it quick and easy to start and stop shooting.

It's also fairly easy to press without making the handset shake. The actual quality of videos is about what we expected, given that it's shooting in 720p.
