Does the myTouch 4G Slide have the most advanced camera in a phone?

T-Mobile and HTC make some bold claims about the myTouch 4G Slide and after spending the weekend with it as my main camera and phone I have to say it could serve as your camera on the go. The Nokia N8 still beats it when it comes to high quality, but the software and hardware is more than acceptable on the myTouch 4G Slide.

This photo was taken of the Clink (CenturyLink Field) in Auto mode.

You can check out more detailed thoughts on the camera in my ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones article.

As you can see in this comparison shot the HDR technology in the software worked very well at bringing out all of those details hidden in the shadows in the previous photo.

This image was captured by the MT4G Slide in HDR mode while at the Sounders game. Note the ghosting behind them where people were moving?

Capturing photos in stadiums in panorama mode is fun and the MT4G Slide did a prety good job here.

Lots of things go on during a corner kick and as you can see in this next series of photos the burst mode is useful.

I used HDR Mode for this photo since there was some sun washing out the details, but as you can see any movement makes the HDR Mode a bit blurry and I think Auto mode would have been better at this time.

I tried HDR mode again and some parts of the kite were missing since it was blowing in the wind.

This shot was captured with the Nokia N8 in auto mode. Notice how much better the quality is?

My daughters thought it was interesting lighting on the beach at night so I captured this with the MT4G Slide.

We have been taking this three head shot for several years and this one was captured with the Nokia N8.

For comparison I took this one with the MT4G Slide in HDR mode. The Nokia N8 one was best.
