Image Quality Compared (Studio - Bright Light)

 

The HTC One X performs fairly well when presented with our studio scene, lit under bright daylight-simulation lamps. Corner to corner sharpness of its 28mm equivalent lens is impressive. White balance is pleasing and exposure is well-judged. High contrast detail suffers though, due to the camera's sharpening-induced edge halos. This gives the scene a 'crunchy' appearance that doesn't look awful, but stands in stark contrast to the much more natural rendering from the Nokia 808 PureView in its 8MP capture mode - the stand-out camera in this selection.
