Anonymous, 05 Mar 2013> How can a 4megapixel/ultrapixel beat the 41mp
> sensor of 808 pureview??! It's like ... more"The way an HTC FOUR MP UltraPixel Sensor beats the Nokia THREE MP 808 PureView Sensor (PureView is 3/5/8MP and non-Pureview is 36/38MP) is that the Pixels are twice as large, and there are between one third more to 50% as many of them"
what???? if you comparred htc to a normal smartphone you might have had a point, but being a "Nokia Owner" you quickly forgot how actually oversampling works, what's the actual 'virtual pixel' size when resolution is 3/5/8mp(in 8mp you get ~3.17microns and in 5mp - 4.01, HTC gets 2) and all this combined with a huge senzor. I find it so amusing when people throw to trash 5 years of actually work and innovation(808) and praise a marketing gimmick of a slashed resolution 1/3" senzor from 8 mp to 4 just so they could show off - "Look at our big pixels" not to mention the first samples and comparisons which aren't that good(at least for a flagship)...
Truevoice, 06 Mar 20134 MP camera as Primary? Surely is an error? Should be 14MP ? Gsmarena Please verify and correct !It's an ultrapixel camera. The 4MP is correct.

We ppl all know the picture quality of Htc Smart phones
but any buddy can tell me that this phone's primary camera only got 4 megapixel why an odd figure all phone on this specs come with minimum 8 megapixel.
kindly take a note if theres a correction on specs...
[deleted post]Why are you add same comment over and over again. If you don't like HTC simply don't buy HTC and enjoy yourself by buy cheap plastic Samsung.
jzac, 06 Mar 2013Good news for HTC One. HTC One won award for the most innovative and best new mobile handset a... moreWhatever people say whatever things I personally like HTC over Samsung, Samsung have little bit more features though. HTC better than Samsung every aspect, except features. Because they have superior design and build quality. Overall HTC is better than Samsung. Let's discuss why HTC is underperformed.
1. They mainly emphasis on hardware rather than battery life.
2. There is no identical common product line for HTC, for an example Apple-Iphone, Samsung-Galaxy or Sony-Xperia. I hope they will continue their future products as "One"
3. Too much production and there are no distinguish between their products. HTC manufacturing 12 phones per year that means one per month and who can remember those, similarly there are no specific difference between those e.g. One x, One x+, One XL, Desire X, Desire V. They need better product strategy.
4. Poor advertising and promotion. The New HTC One promotional video also not very attractive though. They don't strive to improve their brand image through advertising similarly their advertising not towards common goal.
However they are all now past. But one thing is quite sure, HTC is very innovative brand and they have competences to become a superior position if they didn't repeat the same mistakes. We all have mistakes but the important thing is learn through mistakes. They have won best new mobile phone award 2013 at WMC 2013 Many congratulation and wonderful start.
Good luck HTC

Popularity of this phone is going down day by day. Look at the daily interest, it is now 43%. It has come down below the S3 and until the S4 release date was announced it was in the first place. Naturally the hype is dying down.
XDUDE, 05 Mar 2013Its indeed a good phone. I stand up aganist having a LCD screen. it doesnt hav a memory card ... moresony phones have poor display. TFT- definitely not the most advance and very unattractive..
Its indeed a good phone.
I stand up aganist having a LCD screen. it doesnt hav a memory card slot, so u wil always hav to depend on nfc or cable, BT etc. so its gonna be difficlt to exchage large files. its always useful to hav another memory card especially to store ur personal data.
the ultrapixel concept was first brought by nokia in NOKIA 808 and it was a faliure.
HTC ONE is also using the same concept with a 4MP camera, i dnt think it wil be as good as of sony's camera.
its a better to go for XPERIA Z which ha 16GB internal memory and a memory card slot, 13MP camera WITH EXMORE SENSOR, 5inch screen.
its drawback is tat it has a tft screen.
and abt the processor, sony has S4 processor(1.5GHz) while htc has 600 processor (1.7GHz), both frm qualcomm
qualcomm recently announced tat there is no much diffrence between these two processors(also told in gsmarena).
so wats ur choice????
and also TFT(sony)screens are more lasting than LCD(htc) screens.
jzac, 05 Mar 2013If you really like Samsung why do you waste your time here just go buy a cheap plastic Samsung... moreCheap? Okay fine Samsung phones are made of plastic but I personally cannot tell that they can be called cheap. I have a Pebble Blue SGS3 and I do really, really like it. You're just a hater of Samsung phones and that's the truth.
I see great potential in BlinkFeed. It has everything I need. I always have a clock/weather, agenda and news/rss feed widget trio on my homescreen so this really looks like a logical step in the right direction. I'd love to think it could be implemented with location features and settings with many more apps.
Camera wise some say it's great, some say it isn't. The colors are great from what I've seen and the detail good enough. In my opinion it wins just for the sake of the full array of features HTC Zoe has to offer. By far the best camera options and features found on a smartphone.
It provides good stereo sound when listening via speakers and superb audio reproduction and output when you have your headphones on.
The build of the handset and it's unibody construction are just a testament of how great design is made. It both looks good and is very ergonomic while giving a pleasant feel inhand.
It brings innovation and great craft to the consumer. According to all the research, people still prefer slim and light vs. thick and heavy so you have to find a good balance with the battery size. The biggest battery possible is crammed inside the smallest possible body while good software optimisations coupled with low consumption hardware give it a better then average battery life. In the end it's always down to how you use your phone. In this day and age it's good to have a battery bank with you anyways.
And as far as the storage capacity goes. I'm fine by 32GB let alone 64GB version. Most people I know don't have big SD cards, usually having 24GB or even less.
All in all the phone is impressive from every single angle and I look forward to handling it again and seeing how it fares in the future with it's users and against its competition but for now at least it seems it hasn't any.
