HTC Desire S Android smartphone
Colour me bad?
Perhaps surprisingly, with HTC now incorporating 8Mp cameras into some of its handsets, the Desire S is still stuck at 5Mp, and it’s not a very impressive example either. This is still the weak spot with HTC handsets and while it’s true that only a few people buy a phone specifically for its photo capabilities, questionable colour balance, lack of sharpness and poor performance in low light, despite its relatively quick loading, all tend to let down an otherwise impressive piece of kit.
Still, there’s an LED flash, autofocus, geotagging, digital zoom, face detection, a series of effects and 720p video recording, so it’s not a complete dog – just not quite as good as it should be.
