I’ve given up on waiting for a ‘eureka moment’ from HTC regarding its so-so cameras and while the colours on this 5Mp model are reasonably vibrant, edges rarely seem as sharp as they should be, and you’ll certainly need to be careful with your light – it’s not very flexible if you have too much or too little. Still, it starts up fairly quickly (about three seconds) and there’s auto-focus, geotagging and face detection, as well as an LED flash.

A. Facebook. Button. Sigh.
Distinguishing feature: A facebook button.
Is this what passes for innovation nowadays?
Come-on Apple/HTC/Nokia/Microsoft... please try a little harder.
I'd prefer an all-rounder
Imagine if smartphones had gone mass-market a few years earlier. Done that? Good.
Now imagine whipping out your MySpace phone down the pub.
Two phones I'd like to see
1) A smallish smartphone, like the Wildfire, but with a 1GHz or higher processor. Why should small handsets all be budget phones?!
2) A smartphone with a touchscreen and a slide-out portrait numpad, a bit like the old HTC Touch Dual. I reckon the kids would love it for txting, and it would probably appeal to those that find full tiny hardware qwerty keyboards a bit cumbersome.
Either of these would be more innovative than a Facebook button. Come on HTC!
So they removed the scroll button from the phone...
...and put a similarly sized facebook button. Bit of a step backwards.

+1 They'd have my pounds if they did a smaller premium smartphone.
