I cant really understand the need for a second camera unless one is 3D, but no point having a 3D camera if the screen is not 3D compatable.

This phone needs to improve camera. Apart from that it's perfect device. Have been using my one since last April. Very satisfied.

I know many will say it's not needed but again the same situation: HTC will release a phone with the Snapdragon 800, while all the others will have the 805. Not good for HTC, even if this SoC isn't necessary.

Same old design - getting boring now.

What use would dual cameras have? Depth of field in pictures?

Maybe htc realised that the ultrapixel cam was too low resolution for daylight photo, and they added a normal camera for daylight photo on top of the ultrapixel one for low light conditions.

Nice. I don't need any finger print scanner crap. But what's the deal of having 2 cameras at the back??

They still put the same tech inside but without the logo.

Isn't the aim of having two cameras to allow the phone to focus images after the shot has been taken?

I think there is not enough space for second camera. it is to close to the edge of the phone and it is curved in that place. I think it is a fingerprint sensor.

I guess it's a fingerprint sensor up there. Apart from that, just wondering what kind of compensation they can give after beats audio is not present anymore!
