well fellas...people were actually quite disappointed due to very less number of pixels in the camera of thr HTC's flagship so called HTC ONE!
but there is a huge reason behind that:
the reason is HUGE PIXEL SIZE!
this actually matters a lot when it comes to low light photography!Larger the pixel is more the amount of light it captures per pixel and better the low light performance
but people say they miss a lot of clarity when they zoom in and all that stuff!
but our average sized lcd or an led tv is of 1920*1080 which is like 3mp.the only case where you people can miss clarity is when you make huge prints of it.but people how many of u really do that!!?

After that, your phoen wil lstart to have all kind o fproblem.Also, even those we have removable battery in the S4, what happen if after 2 years, the S4 battery is dead and it is not even available in the market for purchase anymore, how do you replace it? So the S4 will also becaome a dead phone too. Also, with the unlimited data usage available nowadays, it is not difficult to use cloud service for stoarage so the external SD card is not really necessary.

Miguel, 20 May 2013What about the camera you did not mention the camera performance,kindly do since i think you a... moreHi ,I posted a short comment regards to the HTC one camera performance earlier , but I'll say it again! to be honest I don't think HTC one camera is perfect , but that goes to all camera phones. It takes some really nice outdoor pics and decent indoor pics , but it still suffer from some noise at low light indoor shots . If you just view them on phone or computer monitor then it's not too much of a problem , but if you to want print them out then I wouldn't depend on it much ( maybe for outdoor shots ) . I wouldn't print any photos taken by a phone . but for social life sharing , it's more then enough . It depend on your needs , if strictly just for the camera then I'll advise you don't aspect 100% quality shots everytime , but as a all rounder phone it's the closest thing you'll find . I enjoy every bit of HTC one , because I want a phone that meet the standard in every feature and not just a perfect camera , because I trust my DSLR more . Hope this help ....
Are people only fooled by the looks of a phone? Do they need some recognition or attention by carrying nice phones? HTC One is a masterpiece while Samsung Galaxy S 4 is a piece of junk because it looks worse and uses plastic? Such a shallow world we live in.
Not saying the HTC One is a bad phone but the S4 is not chop liver either. Only fanboys talk like that. Benchmark scores, battery life, and even camera states S4 is better. Plus Samsung is one of the RARE few manufacturers to add a memory slot and removable battery while HTC followed Apple did. Your phones will eventually die out and they wait for you to get a new one in a few years. I want phones that can last 5-10 years!
Wait when the HTC One never charges again. DEAD. Repairability very low from iFixit. Wait when the metal dents after a few drops. All I'm saying is the S4 isn't garbage. It has longer term value while most people will get tired of "looks" in a few months. Sometimes the INSIDE is where it counts.
Do it yourself,as if someones going to do all that for you,gsmarena already has compare option and web is full of reviews..Its your fone buy a fone that suites your needs.
The best phone i've ever used one should experiance its camera its 4 mp but better then other's which are 13mp & so on in the market...gud battrey back & best screen resolution.
Wait a little bit, new HTC Butterfly S coming soon with all the goodies of HTC One (BoomSound stereo speakers, Ultra pixel camera,...) plus memory card and full HD screen...
I need an assist please,I'm in need of a new phone and I recently checked out the Samsung galaxy S4,Sony Xperia Z and the HTC one.I've never used any phone of the above makers,I've been a Nokia and Blackberry user.I really liked the features of the HTC one but the Samsung galaxy S4 has a lot of more features and all that in it as well the Sony Xperia Z.Can anyone please assist me in which phone to buy by explaining me the advantages and disadvantages of each and other key details as well.
This and Nokia Lumia 920 are the best. Xperia Z and iPhone 5 are nice. Samsung Galaxy S4 is an overrated piece of garbage!

The HTC One is a flawless masterpiece of sheer brilliance in technology and engineering! Iíve personally been a fan of HTC devices for some time now because of their high-quality builds, however, with the HTC One; the bar has been significantly raised to new heights which no other device can touch! The screen clarity is outstanding for everything from doing simple tasks to watching your favorite HD videos. Never before has anyone put quality speakers on the front of the phone, but HTC has and itís wonderful. Gone are the days of struggling to hear your device in a loud environment! And for all you shutterbugs out there, the Ultra-Pixel camera is nothing short of remarkable. High quality photos that can be achieved in any environment. Whether it is in low light setting, or outside on a sunny day, the HTC One Ultra-Pixel camera coupled with HTC Zoe, is up for the task and is guaranteed to deliver. This phone is the world leader in quality with a battery and 1.7ghz quad-core processor to back it up and keep you going all day!
