The HTC one has a good camera, but there are problems with a pinkish haze under low light conditions. The Note 3 has a 13 mp camera, takes great pics. The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a 40mp camera, but holding the phone feels weird because of the unusual camera make-up. The Sony Xperia Z1 has a 20mp camera, also the Z1 is pretty durable. Also the iPhones, they have a 8mp camera, but don't be fooled by that, they take great pics, and opening the camera and taking fast shots will never have any lag issues. Some phone have lags when opening the camera, but not the 6 mentioned in the link on the side bar. The Nexus 5 apparently had camera issues when Kitkat was loaded onto it, although that may be sorted now. Hope this helps, :).
HTC one main camera has a dangerous purple tint problem under low light condition. What should I do any suggestions? My Android version is 4.2.2 should I roll back into 4.1 version to avoid this problem.
Guys I just wanted to buy a Phone with good camera quality and call clarity, quite important tool for my work. some say sony Phones cam better, Please suggest i got to buy a phone with good cam and im totally confused.
HTC desire 700 dual sim has the best design of all the latest htc phones including htc one. In desire 700 dual sim the screen is placed equadistantly from the top and bottom bezels so it comes exactly in the center of the phone when it is held in landscape position and the usb/charging port is placed in the center on the bottom.
i have problem with camera. there is option AE anf AF lock. but no option for unlock. if some one knowing how to unlock plase let me know.
For purple tint for me its when the yhe phone gets warm other then then it did not i placed my hand on the lense for 2 min no purole camera when the phone got warm after sometime i turned camera on and placed finger on the lens it started to turn purple and wheb again when it was nornal temp i tried no more purple tint :) its like haze for mee thank god no purple tint here :)

Totally agreed with you..

Can't really answer your question by now bcoz i used my HTC One only for 3 months since Sept..
Theoretically, battery will become weak after using for quite some time.. but i think that will happen only after few years & not few months.. By that time, maybe you are already thinking to upgrade your phone to another HTC newer model..
Anyway, in order to prolong the battery life, you may turn off the phone at night when you sleep and not using it.. just my opinion..
Battery life will be very much affected by the way you use it..

This phone is really fast and the physical appearance is a beaut! The specifications are really really great. You have to really try it to know the awesomeness of the dual front Beats audio speakers! The battery has been great for me(I'm a moderate user, mostly using it on facebook, twitter, instagram, surf the internet and play some games. All of these mostly can last for a day for me. 100% at 8am and get back home at 5pm with 40%, ps:with mobile data on all time) Because of the full metal aluminium body so it does get hot when you play games like after 15minutes. But works just fine other time. The HTC Zoe feature is great and the camera works properly under normal condition. However there's problem regarding it's camera. Some users including me experience a purple tint problem under low light condition. Well that doesn't affect me much because i seldom take photos outdoor at night. Overall i would rate it 9/10. One star deducted for the camera. Sorry for the bad english and hope it helps!
Currently still at android 4.2.2 on my HTC ONE. 4.3 update is available but i didn't update it yet because i've heard a lot of complaints about the update such as wifi auto connect issue, battery drains a lot faster etc. Need some reviews from you guys before I update it. Thank you in advance :)

Just a last thing.as u know the battery is not removable.so do u experience that the battery is good enough.?
Lyk after 6 to 8 months laptops battery starts to weaken.if its giving 3 hrs it reduced to 2.5..
So will here b same?
If yes then its quite a drawback as the battery is not replacable too.so what to do then?
N a person is buying this much expensive phone so he expects to use it at lest 1.5 to 2 years?
What u say?

hazemfive, 13 Dec 2013pls, which mobile to buy is it SONY Z1 or HTC ONE?

bu... moreHTC One's stengths:
1) Design & build quality (to me, nicer than Z1's flat & square design)
2) Amazing screen with natural colours (much better than Z1 TFT screen)
3) Boom sound (so far no other smartphones can beat the 2 front stereo speakers)
4) UI (3S - Simple, Smooth & Stable. No lag at all even with only Snapdragon 600)
HTC One's weaknesses:
1) Average camera (Can't beat Z1's 20mp camera, especially when zoom in)
2) Average battery (Light users - More than 1 day, medium users - 1 day maybe, heavy users - Less than 1 day)
Consider the above & make your decision..
pls, which mobile to buy is it SONY Z1 or HTC ONE?
I know Z1 more battery, speed, camera.
but I like the quality and design of htc one, please advise
I used this phone since 3 months b4,it's amazing and best smartphone of 2013.No lag at all run smoothly..build quality,camera,boomsounds are good ..
Hi , had mine since September , cant get decent cases here yet . Really enjoy it , good battery if you dont play games or surf the net a lot. Dont drop it . the screen will break , min did , few service centers who can repair it due to the manufacturing process .Otherwise happy owner .
You are welcome..
If i used my HTC One for games.. playing 15-30 min non-stop, i will feel the heat.. But i think this is normal, especially the body was made of aluminium, we will feel more heat..
As far as i know, there is no way you can replace the battery by yourself.. unless you send it back to HTC service centre..
It will take 3 hrs + to charge my HTC One from less than 10% to 100% (without using it during charging).. And if you think yourself is a heavy user, i suggest that you choose HTC Butterfly S with 3200 mAh battery..
