Wrong, Foveon sensors are notorious for their high ISO performance...They work perfectly well in low ligh at low ISOs.
However good is the camera sensor... without a proper xenon flash... just forget it.
I hope that either this rumour ISN'T true or that they've worked hard to have good low light performance. Foveon sensors are notorious for bad lowlight performance. Sigma remains better known for their often cheaper "third party" lenses for other camera brands.
People are bashing HTC like they bash Canon lol and they treat Samsung like Nikon. Every HTC comment section has at least one person complaining "no removable battery, no removable storage", just like how people complain Canon "lacks innovation, poor performance compared to Nikon!"
I am using HTC since HTC Touch Pro....... until now i am using HTC One X..... i has used these phone very tough, dropped from 1 to 2 high...... and no major damage. Just a little scratch....... i choose HTC because of it's build quality......
My wife used samsung Galaxy S2 and now S3, very annoying Phone....... the screen is very easy to broke.... hahaahhahahaahahahha......
Nokia is similar with samsung.... Sony???? i used Xperia 10 before.... i feel so stupid when using it...
But i agree that HTC are week in term of battery, and it's sense make the phone processing power low...
Samsung app are more very productive.... but build quality are very poor.....
Nokia are good when making camera phone... and Microsoft window phone 8 really helped...

XD
here a very interesting video for you, watch and learn !
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2013primary colors? the writer better review his basics.... the primary colors are Red Yellow and ... moreThe primary light colours are RGB, yellow sits in between red & green. We're not talking about your little painting by numbers colouring-in set.
My suggestion: think before you type. Might save you some embarrassment.
primary colors? the writer better review his basics.... the primary colors are Red Yellow and Blue... and not RGB... Green is a combination of Yellow and Blue... Now, computers use either RGB format or CYMK... that doesn't mean RGB are primary colors...
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2013Ah... I see, so its ok for Nokia to copy Sigma's technology, but not others? Point noted."so its ok for Nokia to copy Sigma" ... prove this
Ho Ho Ho....HTC trying to copy Nokia. Why don't they get this no one match Nokia when it comes down to the camera capability.
No one is copying no one ppl (well, HTC might be getting the sensors from Sigma itself as far as we know it). Nokia technology is based in over sampling, while the Foveon X3 sensors used by Sigma are based in pixel stacking. Sigma sensors are much older than Nokia's Pureview (And Nokia's Pureview solution in 808 is just a 'software' solution applied in hardware for maximum speed and energy efficiency).
In Nokia sensors you have 40MP or so, spacially arranged in different positions, thus ensuring quite a bit of detail resolving power.
In Foveon X3, the stacking allows a better assessment of the color at one place, avoiding color moire or other similar issues that otherwise appear in normal sensors. Usually this also means a more pleasant noise when ISO gets higher.
As a side note, Fujifilm EXR sensors were also a diferent type of pixel layout that enhanced dynamic range at the cost of detail resolving power.
So there's hope we'll see another company except Nokia that considers mobile photography seriously. Because what the others are doing is simply they bump megapixels, without real innovation.
Even the big Samsung don't bring anything innovative into this field.

hemedans, 05 Feb 2013htc they can not produce phones these days without copying nokia technologyWake up dude, you can't say that Nokia is the old one in the industry so is HTC. If that's the point, Nokia copied HTC for the touch screen technology, windows Mobile, 4G technology or whatever left.
hemedans, 04 Feb 2013htc they can not produce phones these days without copying nokia technologyHow is it copying Nokia's tech when Nokia uses maths to add up the values of neighbouring pixels to "create" one true colour component pixel, which is merely a calculation of 'traditionally' obtained data, when it's clearly explained that this tech has one pixel capturing all three colours natively? I fail to see your point.
hemedans, 04 Feb 2013htc they can not produce phones these days without copying nokia technologySo htc is not allowed to make good sensors ?
