Plenty of people are now using their phones as their primary cameras, which means buying a phone isn’t just about the communications plan, the voice quality, and whatnot. It’s also about how well it performs as a camera—and maybe as a videorecorder, too. A PCWorld review raves about the camera in the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide.
The HTC-built myTouch 4G Slide has a an 8-megapixel camera and an HD camcorder for video up to 1080p.
According to the article, “Image quality is excellent for a phone camera. A lot of camera phones have a difficult time handling colors. The Slide is on a par with $200-to-$300 stand-alone point-and-shoot cameras. The camera’s interface is the best touch interface they have seen on a camera. It is easy to navigate, responsive, and provides helpful information for shooting in various environments. Video quality was very good as well.”
