5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Camera tricks

The camera has a strip of icons down one side, allowing you to switch between stills and video, activate the harsh dual LED flash, add effects and view your pics. Like the Android buttons, they switch orientation when you turn the phone on its side. There’s no manual shutter button on the side, but the large virtual button on the display is sensitive enough to make it easy to snap your pics without wobbling. Pressing the effects button brings up a series of icons demonstrating what they’ll do to your pics and there’s a basic 2x zoom operated by an on-screen slide.

There’s also auto focus, timer, geotagging and face detection. I’ve become used to image quality being a bit of a let-down on HTC camphones but they do seem to be getting better. The autofocus is generally pretty robust, even for close-up shots, and the colour balance was generally fine too, though it can be prone to slight oversaturation.
