WinPho 7 gets the big-screen treatment

Windows Photo 7

The cameras HTC has built into past handsets have never had a good reputation, with the snapper often the weak link in a series of otherwise perfectly fine smartphones. For the HD7 the manufacturer has raised its game a little and delivered, if not quite a winner, then at least something that doesn't let the side down.

It's a 5Mp number with autofocus and a selection of shooting modes, including macro, though there's no smile or face detection. Picture quality is good, with reasonably sharp edges and a minimum of blur, though the colour balance can be a little bit off on occasion. It can record HD video in 720p resolution too, and the results are much sharper and viewable than what I've seen on previous HTC handsets.
