Fysh, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?Yes. The Camera is only 4MP.
The HTC ONE has a lot of new technology built into the Camera. Go to the website for a better explanation as to why it is only 4MP.
In reality, you can open the "check quality" link right here in gsmarena and compare the HTC ONE to the Galaxy S4 for example.
In the Photo Compare tool choose 'Scaled to 3MP" and choose the Poster option.
As you can see, the HTC one isn't as smooth and clear as the Galaxy S4. It takes good pictures, but because it has a low 4MP you can see artifacts and pixelation that the GS4 renders smooth.
It's right there. There is no denying it.
The one thing that the HTC ONE excels at is the Low Light conditions. Because of the low 4MP combined with the technology on the camera, where the GS4 takes a picture where you can hardly see anything, the HTC ONE takes in light from anywhere and takes a bright picture where there's hardly any light.
So, since people don't really go "develop" pictures anymore, to be honest, they look great on the HTC ONE screen and they're just fine to post on Facebook or Instagram, which is what most people will do.
Otherwise, if you want to take pictures to later work on the in Photoshop or do some other kind of professional work, then get another phone.
If you only care about the Camera, then buy a Nokia 808 Pureview.
Fysh, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?Actually the HTC One uses a new "ultrapixel" technology for its camera. It's supposed to have the same clarity as an 8 MP (standard pixel) camera. See here:
Bappy, 10 May 20134 mp Cam will not satisfy most of the PeopleBecause most of the people stare blind at megapixels. HTC took a gamble with it's 4MP camera. I think they delivered well, despite being it a 4MP. Can't say that about other manufacturers.
Fysh, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?Yah .. 4MP only but the must powerful smart phone camera in the world even better than 42MP from Nokia :)
HTC One ultra pixel camera is better than plastic toys. That's why people say HTC One is the best Smartphone.
+++++++++ HTC ONE: Best Smartphone for 2013 +++++++++
HTC One listed as No. 1 Smartphone in most of popular web sites.
HTC One is the best phone you can buy right now :)
Fysh, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?4 mp Cam will not satisfy most of the People
Fysh, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?Yeah but its a full hd cam and pixels are double not like the other cameras you can make a research about double pixels for cams and you will understand what i mean
Anonymous, 10 May 2013It is not really 4 mega pixel. One ultra pixel is approximately 2 mega pixel. So this 4 ultra... morePixel is the resolution and this phone has the resolution that is equal to 4.1 mega pixel (aprox. 4 million pixels, correct me if i am wrong). Ultra pixel is the marketing name of Htc for the solution of the light sensors (pixels) which are greater in size than competitors, but the resolution is still 4.1 mpx.
Try to not get confused over resolution vs marketing name of technology.
Ps: i like htc, i own one but i like true facts only.
[deleted post]It is not really 4 mega pixel. One ultra pixel is approximately 2 mega pixel. So this 4 ultra megapixel camera is indeed equivalent to a 8 MP camera. Look at earlier posts on this forum regarding this matter. Don't just put comments without any due knowlege or looking, otherwise, it is really ignorant.
barts, 09 May 2013i just f*cking hate it when it happens like this specs are good enough but the camera are onl... moreMegapixels aren't everything in cameras. The ones in the one are larger so they let in more light. That's why large dslr cameras only have 13 or so, though they could have more. Read up on cameras sir

Hi guys am from india, it seems that HTC is not at all interested the HTC ONE to launch in india. I have been waiting for this handset for so long but am loosing patience. Enough is enough. HTC always ignores a big revenue country like India. So shame HTC. Now am planning to buy s4. Good bye HTC.
