I'm very, very new to photography.
Why are all of the sample photos taken by these HTC phones so fuzzy and blown out?
GYAHHH, look at that redeye!!!
I think the photos are really impressive. Something about them screams Nokia though ... the noise correction, perhaps?
Scorpius1: I would have considered buying it if it ran Android....
I would too.
webrunner5: Oh come on. If it was Android you would want Windows 8..
I need access to the file system!!1!1!! Sometimes I want to be able to dump pictures into Bridge, quickly. Not have to wait for my computer to load WindowsPhone Connector. Oh gawwwwd...
Joffun: No SD card slot? Shame - I would have considered buying this otherwise, but with music and apps on it there is going to be little space for photos (particularly if svaing at full res). As it is my iPhone has only 1Gb out of 32Gb free
The challenge is actually getting them onto a computer.
thx1138: As far as Samsung phones go, it is well known Samsung violates the open source licenses and releases broken, or incomplete source code that nees massive work by devs to compile using other sources to get a functional OS. Those that own a Galaxy SIII will now all about Samsung's lack of support for the dev community which has seen huge number abandon the platform for Sony. I wonder how complete this source code is for the cameras.
I couldn't disagree more. Samsung is a HUGE proponent of their developers, I don't know where you're getting your information from. I own a Verizon Note II, and haven't seen one thing from Samsung that shows they are not okay with anyone manipulating their phones. Even after Verizon went ballistic on Note II users and tried to lock it up tight, they (Verizon) backed off when they saw how beneficial it was to let people have some fun.
whtchocla7e: Still waiting for the mythical Samsung NEX-7 killer...
I can see why there isn't much buzz about the Samsung cameras... because their hardware is just not interesting.
My NX210 doesn't feel like plastic ... Hope I have the right one!
Awesome light balancing!
