Question Sensation (XE) and others - poor image & video quality?

I've had my XE for 3 days and one thing in particular that disappoints me is the camera quality, on both the photos and the HD video. How do you find it to be?

I have a Sanyo HD pocket camcorder but have had no use for it since getting my XE, it does what it needs to, HQ pictures and videos, and I quite like the filters on the camera too.

If I wanted reallyt hiogh end photos and videos, I'd buy a camera especially for tohat. The XE gets photos on the go and thats what I need it for.

I had an Incredible S before this and it produced much sharper images. Do you have a link to any of your pics or vids for comparison?

I find the camera very good personally.

Here's an example from my Sensation.

I agree with one of the above posts that if you want top quality pictures then get a digital camera. I find Optical zoom more import than megapixels when you reach 8mp and over.

It's not that I'm wanting top quality pics, I just expected them to look better.

Personally, I find the quality decent for a phone. As far as I am concerned it exactly what I needed in terms of being able to take a quick shot on the go. The HD video quality is above average and it does stereo sound recording as well, which is kind of a novelty still.

I've just tried another test using 1080p, I've uploaded it to Youtube but the max playback quality is ony 480. Why isn't there a 1080 option?

Would you say that the video quality is accepatble?

Default looks ok

Not fantastic in motion, picture quality looks good though. It looks like it was a dull day but the colours aren't too washed out. I'd be happy. Nice outlook onto the garden from your kitchen by the way!

YouTube takes a bit of time before it offers the full HD option. I'm sure it will be 1080p in a couple of hours.

What is the average size of 8mp images you are getting from sensation xe camera?
Asking this because I am getting about 800kb images which from my opinion is very small size for 8mp camera.
Are you guys also getting about the same size??
