The "ultrapixel" is a marketing name for the larger pixels used in HTC 1 cell phones. They have 4 mp on a 2 micrometer x 2 micrometer sensor. When compared to the standard high pixel count cell phone sensors which are typically 1.1 micrometers x 1.1 micrometers with over 18 mp jammed on it, the "ultrapixel"s are much smaller individually, so do not collect as much light, thus the image quality should be better, especially in low light
Mark Long, 23 Jul 2013Actually, according to HTC, the 4 ultrapixel camera is equal to 12.9 megapixels. True or not, ... moreI agree with that. Most people are saying the Ultrapixel is bad. But according to my experience it not bad and not so good either. It's daylight performance are quite behind the S4 but not that much far. However low light, indoor & video recording are way better than S4. The problem here is it's lower mp. That's is the main reason why details of the photos are quite low. However anyone no need to fear its camera performance, it's more than enough for day to day photography. I hope next year flagship phone they will insert at least 7mp camera.
bond, 23 Jul 2013hey is butterfly s comes with 4g? or else pls change the specs details.... :-(there are at least 2 versions, the 901e and the 901s, the 901s has 4g so i would say the specs are partly correct :)
hey is butterfly s comes with 4g? or else pls change the specs details.... :-(
Actually, according to HTC, the 4 ultrapixel camera is equal to 12.9 megapixels. True or not, who knows. When I had the One it produced good, not great, but good pictures. Of course, it was at its best in low light. Outdoors or in good lighting, it doesn't compare very well to my S4. Overall though, I was fairly impressed with its camera. This ulteapixel camera concept that HTC is using will only improve in time, just like anything else it takes a few iterations to get something new to perform at its best. This is HTCs first try with there new design scheme and new version of Sense. They aren't there yet but they'll get there.
Ahmed-Egypt, 22 Jul 2013The Camera 4 MegaPixel × 3.32 Ultra Pixel Camera s it will equal = 13.28 Mega Pixel Came... more You should know that the 4MP module on the HTC One is far worse in daylight than the S4's module, wit regard to actual performance. Otherwise this phone looks great as an upgrade.
Nice phone but Snapdragon 600 will be outdated and is gonna be outdone by Snapdragon 800 so I will pass on this and wait for LG G2 instead. Butterfly S should have been a better device except on the processor part. The design is lovely and the battery is great!
I really love HTC just as much as I love Sony and LG. For me, these three OEMs are the ones who really know how to design their smartphones the best and I believe in them more than I believe in Samsung whom I used to like the most not until Galaxy S4 came. Samsung started to mess up with their supporters by making a lot of Galaxy S4 models only changing the internal specs. At least with this Butterfly S, though it resembles the predecessor physically there are more relevant changes underneath the device like the battery and the different camera technology. I got no issues with the photos produced by the HTC One though it isn't the best in my opinion too. I don't print pictures and I upload them immediately on my social networking accounts so I am really not that technical with the quality, besides the phone really does above average in low lighting conditions in my point of view but using Snapdragon 600 for this one is a bit of a mistake HTC. You should have used 800 instead since a lot of the upcoming phones from Sony, Samsung and LG are going to be powered by the latest Qualcomm monster. It is better to wait for a little while to produce a product that an OEM can produce as their next flagship devioe because there is a bigger chance for it to become a success rather than immediately announce something that will soon turn out to be outdated and gonna be outdone easily! If only this is gonna be powered by a Snapdragon 800 then I would save for this device but since it can easily be outdone by some OEMs out there due to its old processor then maybe I will pass on this and just go for LG G2 instead.
Does htc one and butterfly S have an LED notification for msgs and call just like samsung galaxies?
Jayanth krishnan, 22 Jul 2013I am a big fan of htc the design all are good but going to feature i am some what disappointed... moreThe Camera 4 MegaPixel × 3.32 Ultra Pixel Camera s it will equal = 13.28 Mega Pixel Camera ... it's higher than the camera of the S4

I am a big fan of htc the design all are good but going to feature i am some what disappointed because of only 4 mp camera who would by that by investing tht much money it should meet some wht great mp available in market
..., 19 Jul 2013The butterfly s' screen is not better than the one its only bigger. Currently, there is no scr... moreButterfly S, Butterfly and One all have SLCD3. The One has a smaller screen increasing pixel density.
The Butterfly S screen is better than the other two though because it has Gorilla Glass 3 instead of Gorilla Glass 2.
When htc is going to make a phone with external memory slot, removeable battery, minimum 10 mega pixel camera and 2gb ram. I am fan of htc but still waiting for this stuf..
