Anonymous, 09 May 2013Sounds like a great piece of kit, the only concern I have is what happens when the battery fails?What happens when the battery fails?
Millions buying Apple products don't even worry about this anymore. We have never been able to take the battery out of an iPhone (or a mac for years now) and we are doing just fine.
If it has a bad battery, take it in and get a new phone.
If the battery is fine out of the box, by the time it goes to thousands of charge cycles and it starts losing its ability to maintain a full charge, you will be on the market for a new phone.
Bappy, 10 May 20134 mp Cam will not satisfy most of the PeopleI think you are wrong.
The 4MP camera on this phone will satisfy most people because most people's pictures live in their phones to post to social networking sites. On the phone, the pictures look perfectly fine, provided you get used to focusing it right and working with this camera.
I think a lot of the kinks now with the camera will be worked out in updates.
The lack of Megapixels isn't a big issue unless you open them in photoshop and zoom in all the way to look for flaws.
AnonD-144246, 10 May 2013Yah .. 4MP only but the must powerful smart phone camera in the world even better than 42MP fr... moreI don't know where you get the idea that the 4MP camera in the HTC ONE is better than a 41MP Pureview.
The HTC ONE's camera is not even better than the GS4 13MP camera. The quality check right here is proof. Also, the countless HTC ONE vs GS4 vs iPhone 5 camera reviews on the net that have sample pictures, they all agree the HTC ONE doesn't perform as well as the others.
The only area where the HTC ONE's camera out performs the others is when you are taking picture in very low light conditions. Otherwise, as you can clearly see in the check here and countless other comparison pictures, the HTC ONE really isn't better than the other super phone cameras.
The HTC ONE takes OK pictures and in some cases pixelated pictures and sometimes awful pictures if you don't focus it properly.
AnonD-131407, 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.
AnonD-131407, 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:
AnonD-131407, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?ultrapixels are different from mp
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.
AnonD-131407, 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 :)
AnonD-131407, 10 May 2013Just 4 MP cam?4 mp Cam will not satisfy most of the People
AnonD-131407, 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
ppk, 10 May 2013li-Pi 2300 is awesome i think this is the only model which has great battery back-upHello,
