HTC ALWAYS gloated about their cameras, and they never actually had a good one.
The One S/X? "Best smartphone camera". Turned into oversharpened, mediocre mess.
The Ultrapixel cameras of the "One" series? 3mpx/4mpx with not great PER-PIXEL quality.
HTC used to make some really nice handsets, but considering that Xiaomi has more R&D and quality budget than HTC, and latest HTC products are mediocre amongst the other Chinese manufacturers, I would surely not trust them boasting about cameras or any other part of their tech.
shew, 16 Mar 2016Guys, Confirmed. Its a 360 degree camera which records wide angle front and back. Great. A 360 camera that doesn't rotate like Oppo. Not that they ever made 360 camera.
[deleted post]can't you be more delusional? " Samsung slow on update" wtf... are you expecting GSMarena to write stuff like that? that's not a kind of "news" or "blog" that could be publish on this site at all... That's a personal opinion. Giving a personal opinion is defferent. I agree that Samsung is slow on update but how about the other manufaturers out there? Some out there not giving an update at all... posting stuff like That would damage GSMArena's reputation you know?
Just one Lenovo vibe X3 can blow easy HTC M10.
Lenovo Vibe X3 has
- 3500 mAh battery
- 20 Mpx camera
- front stereo boxes with potent 1.5 W !!
- very good processor audio
- big screen 5."
- global market (China, India, U.E. and maybe U.S.A. - here is problem with Motorola legacy)
- lower price than HTC
- it don't have OIS and laser focus but, isn't IP68 waterproof but it's already better than htc M10 !!
Edy1, 16 Mar 2016360* camera ??
Who cares ?
Samsung, LG and Philips announced they will don't make 3D TV ... more3d tv and 360 cameras aren't related in ANY way.
360 allows to film a 360 scenario in which you can move your head freely with something like google cardboard (or just the phone itself with compass).
3d is a totally different thing

Its a 360 degree camera which records wide angle front and back. 360* camera ??
Who cares ?
Samsung, LG and Philips announced they will don't make 3D TV anymore !
This is an example. 360* camera won't sell. People are not interested in this.
We all see the Samsung S7 success which is based on fact S7 = S6 + something
One is water proof phone. People love water proof phones because we do stupid things and we care about our phones.
One other is better than S6 - and don't have UP and DOWN like htc.
One other is better looking.
And so one. The things people care and want.
Fitbri, 16 Mar 2016I absolutely agree with you about GSM Arena on the sarcasm tone directed in this article and i... moreI disagree
the critic tone and sarcastic tone are produced by vary disappointments generated by HTC and HTC products.
How HTC can make a phone with good resolution, front speakers and bad camera ?
and after make a good camera, but no front speakers ?
or make a good camera, front speakers, IP68 waterproof phone but sell it only in Japan / Taiwan ???
How you, HTC can make up and down with phone characteristics and even in the bankrupt perspective not do a GOOD phone with only PLUS characteristics year by year ???
You have in one year a phone with OLED screen - stick to it !!!
Second year you put a better photo camera (20 Mgpx) - stick to it !!!
Third year stereo front speakers !!!
Forth year IP68 water proof !!!
and so on !!!
not - this year front stereo speakers next year with only one mono speaker !!!?!?!
WTF is that ???
You can make with customers UP and DOWN like that !
Everybody are produce today phones with mono speaker and no water proof !
You HTC is near bankrupt? Do the OLED, Full HD, 3000 mAh, stereo front speakers, big resolution camera, OIS and laser stabilization and lastest ARM proc PHONE AND SELL IT in the whole world !! (not only in Japan)
and you will do a big profit !
But not this M10 !!
The market is full of phones like M10 !!!
We don't need a HTC M10 !
Won't sell !
Samsung have waterproof, OLED, big resolution camera, but no stereo front speakers.
With stereo speakers a Samsung will put an end to HTC business in phones !
so.... do it HTC !
Its a 360 degree camera which records wide angle front and back.
zahor, 16 Mar 2016HTC M10 but look very oglyYou might be one of those lucky ones to be invited specially by HTC to have a first look at the "ogly" HTC M10, ya?
Using M9... Camera not that great when compared to other flagships. Still is better than previous M models. As for the 10... (what a heck). show us what you get HTC and I will judge if I through some money on you
Nice to hear that,but I hope the battery will be good enough to enjoy the phone
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016I had a m7 2 years after it came out I got it second hand and HTC replaced the camera with the... moreI owned all 3 of M series and i think the best is the M8. Now i switched from M9 to S7 because the camera quality was poor and so it was the battery.
Calm down guys, time will show if HTC bragging is on par with actual camera:P I kinda doubt it will be all of the sudden "word class" cameras, but please, HTC, prove me wrong:P
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016Theyve never had a phone with a decent camera, let alone class leading. If it cant beat the ca... moreI don't expect S7 class camera from. My suggestion to them is make a M8 body + S6/G4 camera = would be a splendid HTC M10 (but... its not going to happen... sad).
