[Video] Hands-On with the HTC Amaze

Authored by: Steven Blum — Sep 28, 2011

Yesterday, T-Mobile announced the HTC Amaze 4G (previously known as the HTC Ruby) – a 4.3-inch powerhouse running on T-Mobile's new HSPA+ 42Mbps 4G network. Not only will the phone be one of the first to run on T-Mobile's new network, it'll also come packing with impressive, and still quite rare, features like an NFC reader (the only other phone with NFC is the Nexus S) and a great new camera.

While HTC's MyTouch 4G Slide was touted as the best camera phone on the market, the HTC Amaze ups the ante with two new camera feature – including something called SmartShot, which takes five shots in rapid succsssion, bringing the best elements of each to compose one photo — and PerfectPics, a gallery that takes the top 10 percent most technically outstanding photos from your camera roll and automatically combines them in a seperate album.

Wondering what these new features look like in action? Check out the video below for more:

    Looks nice. But to say it is the best camera on a mobile phone is a bit dramatic. Sadly,the best camera on a mobile phone I have seen is on the Nokia.

    For Android, I like the camera on the Galaxy S2. Let's see if HTC is better.
