Symon Whitehorn, a former Kodak executive who now heads up HTC smartphone imaging as the manufacturer's director of special projects.
JR: Some of the early criticism of the One has been that images captured with its camera tend to look grainy and overly processed with noise reduction when viewed at full resolution -- particularly with shots captured in well lit conditions. What's your take on that criticism?
Whitehorn: I'd highlight that those were preproduction units. We had an automatic ISO issue that's been resolved and fixed pre-production launch. ... All those issues shouldn't be there [in final consumer versions of the phone].
Does anyone know the following.If I am able yo purchase an HTC One from China with the benfit of having Dual Sim and MicroSD slot, would that phone be able to work properly in South Africa that will be getting the HTC One without those features.??? Thanks!!!

If the stock player doesn't play something, just go to play store and download another. 1 minute? I use dice player for .mkv and mx player for everything else. It's android after all..
Guys' first of all' clear ur minds of mega pixels and ultra pixls
Sony xperia s 12 mp shooter bad bad fotos' Sony xperia z 13 mp shooter my Samsung s3 takes crisper pix than it, just because its low pixels doesn mean its bad quality it depends on the sensor' sure 4mp its not alotbut trust me its more than enough to do our day to day things like u guys do( think I phone when everyone was using 5 and 8 mp shooter iPhone came out with 3 mp but it had a good sensor so images were great. So just because your photos don't look proffesional guess what no one is gonna care they'll look good enough. I have a sgs3 and I love it but the looks if this HTC made me reminiscen my HTC sensation so I will be getting this phone because I know HTC makes sturdy and high quality stuff trust me none of you will be dissapointed with this phone.
hem, 02 Apr 2013wat will be the price in usa...for unlocked version650$
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2013hardly any new phone has radio anymore as you can just download app for it.HTC One has FM hardware and software built in.
i dont think the idea is to repair yourself but to pay htc to do it a bit like most do with any phone
OK, so just got my HTC One today and I am pretty blown away.
The new Sense UI is great. The transfer from old phone tools which HTC built in make transferring contacts and stuff great.
But what blew me away was watching a music video from you tube, with the music coming out of the speakers.
INCREDIBLE. The Picture quality was amazing, but the sound quality is something to be in awe of. Fine, it's not your full high spec stereo, but for a phone????
So, I'm stil discovering it's capabilities, but so far...
It was my favorite candidate to next phone...until this: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown...down/13494/1
alipk52, 02 Apr 2013This is great phone, but non-removable battery plus lack of sdcard slot is a deal breaker for me.I prefer to use a external battery pack to charge/run I can use if needed. I prefer it as I don't have to restart the phone to switch batteries. Just plug it in while I'm using it and it charges it. I use a Anker SlimTalk 3200mAh Backup External Battery Pack pack which has a built in cord, can charge other things like my tablet, flashlight and is very small.
Also, 64GB is plenty for me although I would prefer adding my own micro SD card.
aki.., 01 Apr 2013HTC one is launched in india?

Second of all Android is an open source. Google will never limit it, that's for sure. It's what gives them progress, innovation and the lead.
Chebulla, 01 Apr 2013People don't realise that although Samsung may have "invented" some S features they ... morethanks for the information! your comment makes lots of sense. there is no doubt htc is the best android phone atleast it can give android a nice interface. its has its own drawbacks such as repairs and accessories and parts. Samsung is also good phone, ther is nothingwrong if plastic is being used in a phone. but its interface dosent has that professional look like iphone and blackberry like htc.
but what do you think where will samsung and other droids left if Google decides to flow its own phones into market and dosent allows licenses to sam-sony-htc its for sure that they are using googles bullets to fire with their arms what if the bullets are no longer there! Apple and google will be the only giants then.
This is great phone, but non-removable battery plus lack of sdcard slot is a deal breaker for me.
