HTC One X camera beats out other top Android smartphones


Lots of you like hearing about benchmarks, but what about real world, everyday performance? The HTC One X is one device that promises to deliver in both areas, and one feature in which this phone really shines is the camera.

HTC claims that the One X can take a picture in just 0.7 seconds, with up to four full frames per second, and up to 99 shots at one time. That's pretty impressive, and better than a lot of dedicated digital cameras.

But how does the One X stack up against some of the top Android phones today? Well, to summarize the video that appears below, the camera performance of the One X pretty much beats the competition hands down. This is even when compared to the Sony Xperia S, with its "Fast Capture" feature, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which boasts no shutter lag.

Admittedly, the Xperia S does beat the One X when taking a picture from standby mode, but that's partly due to the dedicated camera button on the Xperia S and the steps one must take to unlock the One X. Once unlock time is accounted for, the One X still shines.

Interestingly enough, the version of the One X that is coming to Sprint, also known as the HTC EVO One, looks like it might actually have a dedicated camera button, in addition to some other enhancements. (Look closely at the press shot on Good and EVO to see what I'm talking about.) If this turns out to be true, then Sprint's version might even be able to beat the Xperia S.
