Indoor, night-time and low-light shots are more likely to suffer from image blur as the exposure time lengthens to let enough light into the sensor. Well-lit outdoor shots are less susceptible, but sharpness can still suffer from a shaky hand, no matter how steady you think you are. While the HTC One X has some tricks up its sleeve to combat camera shake and low light, a tripod and tripod mount for your phone can be a big help. HTC produces its own HTC One X Tripod and Holder accessory for a smidge under £30.
