The camera has a fast f/2.0 lens, a backside illuminated sensor (BSI), HDR for photo and video recording, panorama sweep and a plethora of shooting features.

Our daylight images would benefit from a tad more brightness and contrast for example, as would our interior still life shot likewise benefit from an application of the HTC's built-in filter in the Google Play version.
