Customers Report Great Battery Life

Three people who reviewed it thought it had a good battery life.

  • Plus why would you buy this if your phone already has a camera? The live stream function has serious lag (around half a second) and recording will drain the battery in about two hours…
    M. Bloor - March 2016
  • Battery life is also remarkably good…
    Del 58 - April 2015
  • Battery time is not very long…
    Treecem (Bestbuy.com) - September 2015

  • It's proving impossible to re-charge it, unit won't accept a charge, guess limitation of the battery they've used? Will try customer service to see if we can get it exchanged…

    Jess - June 2017

Customers Report a Good Screen / Viewfinder

Two owners who reviewed the HTC RE wrote that it had a good viewfinder.

  • With no viewfinder it's sometime difficult to know if you are pointing it in the correct position…
    Dan F - May 2017
  • Picture quality is very very good indeed, although the lack of a view screen means you will need to download the app…
    Del 58 - April 2015
  • There is not a view finder on this item…
  • Using the screen at full resolution is a little difficult, because everything is so small.
  • Although this camera does not have a viewfinder (relying on your phone to fulfill this role if required) it has a sufficiently wide angle to catch the action, so long as you point it in the general direction…
    Simon - June 2017

  • It looks like a bit of plastic pipe that has broken off from under the sink, except of course that this one is blue…
    Helpless - April 2015
  • Build quality is poor…
    Amazon Customer - October 2017
  • A built in sensor senses the camera is being held…
    Del 58 - April 2015
  • The camera is compact, light and sturdy…
    Four Violets - May 2015
  • Being waterproofing is a bonus as we're able to use it in swimming pools with our daughter without worry or getting a waterproof case for a different camera…
    Gavin T. - May 2017
  • The camera is water resistant to approx 1 Metre, which is good for photography in the garden pond or a shallow rock pool.
    Del 58 - April 2015
  • Not much good in a swimming pool, or on the beach…
    Del 58 - April 2015
