Anorse, 13 Mar 2013hey its not 4MP its 4UP = Ultra Pixels see the it on official HTC Site, I think gsmarena misty... moreYes, it is 4MP!!!! And finish...
It has 4MP on an (tiny) 1/3" sensor, so these 4 million pixels are relatively big (about 2micron) - and the bigger the better.
But now imagine what happens if you have a huge 1/1.2" sensor -> Nokia 808 PureView. It has 1.4 microns big pixels on full res (41mp!!) - but if you choose 8mp for the Picture the pixels will be much much bigger = amazing clarity and quality and still big images. Convince yourself and forgot the HTC One "Camera" - here are some of the samples shot with the untouched 808 PureView (have a look at the night pictures as well): http://www.flickr.com/photos/dlucic/sets/72157632877499722/with/8513310251/
Sharique Tharani, 13 Mar 20134 mega pixel camera..XX ?Its not a 4 mega pixel camera. Go do your research into the technology behind HTC's new camera.
It's different that you think
hey its not 4MP its 4UP = Ultra Pixels see the it on official HTC Site, I think gsmarena mistype that description of the camera of HTC One
Thats not MP (Megapixel), its UP(Ultra Pixel). They need to correct the specification there.

vidubhatt18, 13 Mar 2013Nd the reviews such as of the verge are biased...And the reason for that is they just wanted to hurry up and post first
How d hell on earth could anyone review any gadget in two days
They received(HTC one that too not a final retail unit) on Saturday and they posted review on Monday
Chebulla, 13 Mar 2013In my opinion the hype is around Zoe /camera features. The camera is on par with other flagshi... moreExactly and that was the case with onex too(the camera may not be on par too other bests but its functionality proved better)
However just waiting for Samsung to unveil s4 so that I could pick mine hopefully.....my main consideration is design quality because those are the two things u have to feel after 3-4 months
One more thing
Ask someone in IT field regarding the purchase of any gadget the only u get is that get a gadget with nice hardware coz software can b tweaked later on
U can look for yourself that there are apps for smart stay and popup play but do the software could change the feel of s3...never
This one has got the hardware(nice antennas yeah, speakers, screen and ofcourse that tempting body)
Anyways hope for the best for tomorrow
All u guys are criticizing HTC one's camera coz the so called Samsung fans cannot believe or understand such an amazing camera technology which Samsung cannot innovate coz they can only copy.......HTC rocks

I was fortunate to meet a guy from HTC yesterday and he happened to have the HTC one. I’m a proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I also user of the iPhone 4S (due to work).
The HTC One is an exceptional phone; beautifully crafted phone; every detail has been thought out carefully. HTC has really put a lot into this phone in terms of aesthetics and hardware. This phone sits beautifully in the hand and you can feel the quality. It blew me away. I haven’t seen a phone built to this quality …ever. I cradled the iPhone in one hand and the HTC one in the other. The iPhone felt cheap and pointless heavy compared the HTC One. No BS. HTC has built something special and it’s a winner. This phone has raised the bar for HTC and other manufacturers out here.
INTERJECTION: If you’re thinking I’m a fanboy of HTC, you’re wrong. I’m fan of good tech. As a consumer having loyalty to single manufacturer that doesn’t know me and only cares about my wallet is plain stupidity.
There’s nothing on this phone I would describe as a simple ‘gimmick’ – a lot of the new features make sense. The biggest change to the Sense UI is Blinkfeed; an interface that feeds you with information at a glance. You could say its one huge widget. As smart phone user, I want information at my fingertips and at a glance (it’s the reason why I have a smart phone) – so having to click on an icon not knowing what I’ll present, doesn’t make sense. The home screen on my phone is saturated with widgets, so I can see what’s out there and if it takes my interest, I can dive right into it. Blinkfeed will serve be beautifully.
The little things that HTC have done to the phone, that a big difference:
• The 4 ultra-pixels camera – I know there’s a lot of mixed feelings about this, but I’ve seen it and its f-ing amazing. Don’t listen BS out there
• The 4.7 inch, full HD 1080p, LCD 3 screen. One word …beautiful
• 2 GB of DDR RAM – there are a few phones out there with it, but I’m glad has it too
• Dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers – makes sense, right? Why have it in the rear facing the wrong, which 99% of phones do
• Smart Flash: Five levels of flash automatically set by distance to subject. Clever
• Gallery with Video Highlights – this feature is so much fun
• HTC Zoe – you need to see to believe it
When you handle the phone and see it in action, you’ll know what I’m on about.
Chebulla, 13 Mar 2013The most shifty reviews come from Joshua Topolsky's office. He'd sell his own mother if the mo... more"There's a lot of noise thanks to the lower pixel count at times, but the range of light levels you get to shoot in compared to other camera phones is excellent."
"And the photos we took looked stunning at times on the phone screen, which HTC says is where most of them stay - which we agree with to a degree. However, on the computer screen things are oddly different, with higher exposure and some loss of detail."
"We've noted some criticism of the HTC Ultrapixel system already, and yes, if you really care about photos on the go, working hard on scene composition all the time and fiddling with the exposure chances are you won't want this phone. Ultrapixels work well enough, but there's definitely a lot more to come from the technology."
but you should read the full review and see the samples they took with it so that phrases I quoted don't look as if they were taken out of context, or as if I had anything against this phone. I think it's gorgeous although not original but I don't like the hype around the camera which is not that impressive
