Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013Maybe you are studying for high degree, but about phone camera you are talking, i don't agree ... moreWhether you are talking phone camera or professional camera the rules of optics, sensors and light propagation still apply. I have not doubt the HTC One is a good camera but for specific conditions, and likewise for higher megapixel cameras.
Images can be enhanced using algorithms, however this has its limitations.
My main point is choose the subject then choose the camera, golden rule. Rather like choose the tariff you need then choose the phones that can sit on it (that's if you want to use a phone analogy)
All phone cameras will have their limitations, it's just that certain manufacturers choose to make then in different ways to give and edge in certain lighting conditions
moogyman, 01 Mar 2013Let me clarify things with regards to the issue surrounding the 4 megapixel chip in the HTC On... moreMaybe you are studying for high degree, but about phone camera you are talking, i don't agree with you, because you are talking the way you believe about it, but i know the truth of this camera....but i'm not going to reveal in here for free...because there might happen many companies and sources to earn fortunes out of my idea and information's, and probably screw HTC company on sell profits for this product!
The Camera is not as expectations
I think HTC need to resolve this issue ASAP
its nothing wrong its "4 MP" but the ultrapixel technology boosts the picture quality up to 3 times..which makes the picture quality up to almost 13 MP
this preview looks like a HTC supported marketing hype. this year seems to be HTC's media hype year.
Do you know will CNAP (caller name presentation) service from Rogers and Fido in Canada works on this phone?
zack khan, 01 Mar 2013its mistake by gsmarena and its not 4 mega pixel its new technology called ultrapixel It's not a mistake and no it's not better, actually it's worse than the iphone 5 let alone the 12/13 shooters out there
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013Myself and everyone I know who had HTC 2 years ago had issues and HTC forums and their Faceboo... morefrom my understanding is that LG/Samsung has paid web attackers pretending a dissatisfied former HTC customer, then would sing praises to get them to buy their products. Dirty tricks, but it does work. I myself owned an HTC sensation and it works fine just like any other phone. Don't listen to what you read on internet. Do some research yourself.
moogyman, 01 Mar 2013Let me clarify things with regards to the issue surrounding the 4 megapixel chip in the HTC On... moreThank you for your input - it helps. For a typical person usage it seems the HTC "innovation" has promise. I must admit to being annoyed with low light performance of every smartphone I have used so maybe this is the way to go.
so far sony xperia z is the best phone in market,its better thn even iphone5
1-sony xperia z
2- iphone 5
3- htc one
4- samsung galaxy s3

Let me clarify things with regards to the issue surrounding the 4 megapixel chip in the HTC One. I am a professional photographer in the scientific field, trained at degree level, and I also lecture in this field. This is a common area of confusion surrounding the relationship between megapixel and quality of image. What you are dealing with here is a photographic compromise, more megapixels will give sharper photographs that can be enlarged more, however because they have have smaller pixel size on the chip there light grabbing ability is worse than a smaller megapixel chip of the same size. The signal from the photons of light gathered by the small pixels in the high megapixel chip will need more amplification, called 'gain' which will result in more noise to signal ratio, eg digital 'grain'. This image will be sharp but grainy with unsaturated (dull) colours. Manufacturers work hard to correct this with signal processing, but it will never make up for more light falling on the sensor.
If this principle is related to the HTC One chip, the chip is large and the pixels are low in number and larger, therefore the result will be a photograph that cannot be enlarged a great amount ( larger than A4), however the grain will be smaller with much better colour saturation. It also has the added benefit of being able to take much more acceptable photographs in low light levels such as social settings.
In conclusion it depends on you photographic requirements, if you have plenty of light (bright sun) then it is best to opt for a high megapixel camera like the Sony Experia Z 13Mp, however if your requirement is to take photographs inside or fast moving objects (aperture/ shutter relationship is a whole different subject) then its best to opt for a small megapixel that has a large physical sensor size like the HTC One.
This debate can roll on and on but the fact remains that there is not such thing as the perfect camera, first decide what you are wanting to photograph and then choose the appropriate camera. I hope this helps you all. Kind regards Moogyman
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013why is hear 4mp camera ? 64gb memory,2gb ram, Quad-core 1.7 GHz ,2.1 front camera. why 4mp mai... moreits mistake by gsmarena and its not 4 mega pixel its new technology called ultrapixel
ultrapixel is a new technology its 4times better than any megapixel camera whether 13, 12, or 8 mp,
ultrapixel is a new technology and it is 4times better than any 5,8/12/13 megapixel,
jzac, 01 Mar 2013The only feature that Xperia Z have Htc one haven't is water resistances. However Xperia Z now... moreNo Man Stay chill and compare it spec by spec and also add flow ui and xloud clearaudio+ in Xperia Z....And I had One X ANd I had Xperia S both....my XPeria killed one x in every way in display...i dont believe in blogs i saw it with my own eyes......SO xperia has more features and premium design....:) Hope it answers you btw am not a fanboy..I just told you whats better is better And in daily usage benchmarks dont count my xperia has same speed as one x in daily usage.
why is hear 4mp camera ? 64gb memory,2gb ram, Quad-core 1.7 GHz ,2.1 front camera. why 4mp main camera ???
Higher is better
LG Optimus G Pro 12105
HTC One 11746
Lower is better
LG Optimus G PRO 1011
HTC One 1124
HTC One has POOR BATTERY
NOT REMOVABLE Battery
NO microSD card slot
OVER HEATING METAL PHONE.
HTC One CAN'T even come close to G PRO!!!
