It seems like the competition for “world’s best smartphone camera” is heating up with the introduction of the iPhone 5, Lumia 920 and now the HTC 8X. The 8X camera features an f/2.0 aperture at 28mm with 8 megapixels supported by a backside illuminated sensor and dedicated image-chip for fast image processing. All the kinds of things we want to hear about smartphone cameras these days, because the best camera you have is the one you have with you.
So just how good is the 8X camera? These new samples from Techgoondu don’t show much, but the lack of noise and nice depth-of-field tells us HTC did something right.
When it comes to the best Windows Phone 8 smartphone camera on T-Mobile, we’ll have wait and see what Nokia has in store for their Lumia 820 and 920 models (assuming one or both arrive on T-Mobile), as well as what Samsung has at the ready. For now, the HTC 8X appears to be ready to hold its own.
