It sounds a little showing-off but I have the reasons why I'm saying so. Many people told me "No, iPhone is the best now. No other phones can defeat". Hello, don't say as if I'm a dummy who've never touched an iPhone before. I'm having an iPhone, a Blackberry & a HTC Incredible S now and I'm speaking with full of justice. *ahem*

To be honest, I was a big fan of iPhone (and Blackberry previously) for their smartness & especially the HDR camera function, 5megapixels camera and flash. The photos taken by an iPhone never fail to please me with their soft skin mode, lighting adjustment. And if I want my photos to be even much chio-er, I just need to download extra photography apps in the Apps store. I was very happy back then. 

Until HTC Incredible S arrived at my house. I was introduced about the new "member" who wants to join the Crystal's gadget family that this tiny black phone has 8 megapixels. And no, it's actually not tiny. In fact, it's the biggest phone among the three with 4inch screen (iphone has only 3.5inch display). 

Ok lah, some of you can nag me like my mom "You buy a phone not a camera. What do you need a high megapixel phone for? Taking a normal photo is good enough". Ok fair, can I ask you to buy one of these phones below:

Just need to make a phone call, sms only, why need an iPhone ???

Is it so wrong to demand smart phone comes with a smart camera? No, it isn't. Especially, it's an phone for a blogger, photographers, reporters who need to capture photos, moments every where on the go. And that's the reason why I praised this HTC Incredible S so much because I don't have to download every single apps to beautify my photos. All the different photo effects are ready-to-use and real-time sharing!

Let me show you the different photo effects that HTC Incredible S has:

1. Depth of field. 
Super dreamy feel with blur background

2. Vintage mode

3. Vintage warm

Vintage warm with different lighting

4. Vintage cold

5. Grayscale

6. Sepia 

7. Distortion 
Was on the plane flying to Krabi and I took this photo. It turned out to be quite artistic, lolz

and many more....

My favorite macro shooting mode and HTC gives me the feeling like I'm holding a semi-pro DSLR with their auto-focus lens. Maxi intelligence! 

Low light shooting can never be easier. My iPhone cries out loud when it comes to this. 

Angry bird, what level are you? ;)

 Another artistic photo of the sky with Vintage mode! 

Food photo taken by HTC Incredible S (with flash of course)

Wanna know how iPhone photo looks like?

Here you go!

Some other photo comparisons:

My tissue box, cute? 

Taking photo of my friend Alicia using iPhone & HTC with flash. And obviously, HTC gives me so much better quality photo.

Normal shooting without flash. iPhone4 makes my skin much better but lighting isnt as good as HTC. 

So don't say that I'm bias to HTC Incredible S. Proof given! And this is not to mention that HTC Incredible S does have many different effects for movie shooting as well which iPhone has none. OMG! Seriously! Think again people! I mean I still love iPhone because I've been using it for a while but I can't deny that HTC does give me so much more excitement and happiness, not to mention how convenient and smart the phone is. How smart?

1. Friend stream: all status, photos update from Twitter, Facebook of the same person will be shown in 1 screen. Which phone has that? HTC!

2. Contact + facebook/ twitter = People. That's why, the moment you key in your facebook username & password, HTC will help you to find and match the contact in your contact and update it instantly. I was literally shocked when I saw my cousin's handphone number in UK in my contact. I didn't even ask her, neither she gave me. That's really amazing, HTC!

3. Photo tagging before uploading: Right! As per normal, you need to upload your photo onto the facebook first, then you'll be able to tag your friend. With HTC, tag anytime you want and upload it. The phone will auto-crawl the correct friend in your friend list. You got my salutation!

There are so many other awesome functions that HTC has which I'm unable to tell you all now. If you still insist iPhone is better than HTC, then you don't need to read my blog anymore. It's redundant!
But before leaving my page, please remember grab a HTC to try out and experience yourself and come back to tell me what you think.

Now I'm still placing HTC as champion! Cheh!

Last message before I end the entry, PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! How many times do I need to say this so that you will vote for me? Wtf! VOTE LAHHH!

Stubborn people don't want to vote yet? Sure, no problem! Support HTC instead of me by visiting their Website,  visiting their Facebook fan and following Crystal on Twitter
Good luck!
