At CES we showed you some awesome new features of the Sony Xperia Ion’s camera and promptly pitted them against the 0-delay shutter speed of the Galaxy Nexus. Here at MWC, we’ve just seen some fantastic new camera features of HTC Sense 4.0 and wanted to offer it the same opportunity to dethrone the GNEX for camera superiority. Here goes nothing:

There you have it: the HTC One X is the clear winner.

I did have trouble flawlessly unlocking the phone to the camera every time, but when done properly and combined with the much improved auto-focus speed, the HTC One X is not only feature-filled but extremely quick.

But would the HTC One X defeat the Sony Xperia Ion in a quick camera contest? To be honest, I highly doubt it, but we won’t know until we put them to the test. I’m mainly excited that mobile phone cameras are starting to see feature based attention beyond number of megapixels. I think the next 2 years will show huge growth and strides in the mobile phone and digital camera convergence area, and for that I’m extremely excited.
