So far HTC handsets have hardly been the shooters of choice to the cellular photographer. Well judging from what you are about to see things might be just about to change. We've got a video shootout of the Sensation and the LG Optimus 2X comparing the 1080p footage recorded by the two Android smartphones.

It seems that HTC finally started taking the camera department seriously as the dual-core HTC Sensation does pretty well against the LG Optimus 2X despite being far from finalized just yet.

Now the color balance and noise levels seem better on the LG smartphone, but the HTC Sensation seems to be the sharper of the two. Still given the fact that HTC still has quite some i-dotting and t-crossing to do before they release the Sensation we'd refrain from passing judgment at this point.

Check the video out below to see the actual shootout. Just don't forget to switch to 1080p mode and switch to fullscreen.

The left video was made with the LG, the right was made with the HTC. The videos were made at the same time, one phone in each hand. At the end they were pointed at each other so the LG has video of the HTC and the HTC took video of the LG.
