Super fast HTC One X camera tested against Galaxy Nexus and Sony Xperia S

The HTC One X has been showing some amazing performance. The device is arguably the best device unveiled at Mobile World Congress. And one of the factors HTC tried to emphasize the most in Barcelona was the device’s camera performance. We have already done a quick test, and the HTC One X won against a Galaxy Nexus. Further proving its capabilities, the guys from Soyasincau have decided to put it to the test against an Xperia S and a Galaxy Nexus, and the results are rather impressive.

The Xperia S happens to outperform the HTC One X at taking a picture straight from stand-by mode. But such result is mainly due to the fact that Sony’s smartphone has a dedicated camera button. One can simply press it and take a picture at any given time.

Having to unlock the device and access the camera app takes multiple more steps. But when the unlock factor is taken out of the equation, the HTC One X is clearly faster and better than the other high-end devices. Said smartphones are also very well known for camera performance, so this really makes the HTC One X ImageSense camera stand out from the crowd.

To see the multiple tests performed, simply go ahead and check out the video embedded below. But what do you guys think? Is camera performance that relevant to you? Are you getting you waiting to make this your next device?

    u can see the guy with experia turn his screen on faster every time so the only way to test this is with a high speed cam and seeing which one is faster using the same person for a constant.

    it was long but dat burst feature…. This would come in handy when I am driving and trying to snap a pic of the cash for gold costumes I see on the side of the road…

    also no one mentioned that I think the majority of us use the screenlocks more specifically the pattern unlock (to keep the snoopy f.b.i. out lol) but does the xperia do the quick capture feature without turning the lock off and if it doesn’t none of these tests matter to me except for the burst speed. Otherwise you have to factor in that my screen lock takes a minimum of 3 seconds to recognize my face/input my pattern.

    But Sony makes cameras, video cameras…….so it shouldnt be a surprise if they do a good job they have a decent camera on their phones.

    An HTC phone could have the picture quality of a $5000 DSLR, with the speed of superman, and I still won’t buy anything with Sense on it.
