Mother VS Daughter, I WANT That SmartPhone!! | HTC Rhyme Review

Mother VS Daughter, I WANT That SmartPhone!! | HTC Rhyme Review

I can’t say enough about the HTC Rhyme’s camera. 8MP, but my other phones were 8MP and didn’t take anywhere near as fabulous images as the HTC Rhyme. WOW. The shutter speed is very fast, meaning you click the shutter button and it takes the picture nearly immediately (HUGE for a mom on the go taking tons of photos!). The photo ‘Scenes’ blow me away! Portrait, Landscape, Action burst (totally cool), Backlight HDR—totally works!, and my absolute favorite is the Panorama Scene. You turn these on before you shoot a picture. AMAZING. I also love the photo effects you can turn on before (and edit after as well). I’ll stop now, but WOW WOW WOW. LOVE this camera!
