Alexandra Chang, writing for Wired Gadget Lab:
The most exciting is “Zoe” mode (from which the camera gets its
name). Zoe lets you take full-resolution videos while
simultaneously taking full-resolution still photos in burst mode.
Shoot a video and the camera is taking photos for you. […]
This is by far the most useful addition to a smartphone camera.
You can return to a video and literally scroll through the images,
select one and save it to your camera roll or share it. Instead of
pulling a low-res screenshot, you can pull a full-res photo of the
exact moment you want.
Sounds like a great feature. Interesting too, that HTC has gone with fewer but bigger pixels on the camera sensor — this almost certainly makes for better images, but at the expense of a lower megapixel count.
