Looking at the photos, I'd place this camera second to the pureview 808 and equal to the iphone 5 and lumia 920.
It doesn't matter that the camera is only 4MP. It doesn't matter that much beyond a certain point. Personally, I would take a high quality 5MP camera over a much worse 13MP camera.
I'm waiting for final gsmarena review before I pass judgement
tomislav, 20 Feb 2013is it a mistake, or camera is only 4 Mpx?It's 4MP but its pixels are 3 times larger therefore able to absorb 3 times more light than the normal pixels. It performs fantastically at low light but whether it delivers clear images when it's enlarged is yet to be found out.
Why smart phone maker HTC is dumb? So many features in the phone with 2300 mah battery? For such a big phone this will switched off with in half a day ! So silly !
AnonD-109675, 20 Feb 2013it's not a mistake it is 4 MP ultrapixelswell, ultrapixes is a marketing trick/name made up by HTC. It's not something special - they just want to stress out that the pixels are larger compared the camera sensors from the other phone makers. The sensor is not actually very large itself - its just 1/3'' sensor size.
So the marketing name do not have place in the spec section and as I see the gsmrena team had removed it from spec.
Mark, 20 Feb 2013I think someone made a mistake I think the primary camera should be 14 megapixels instead of 4. it's not a mistake it is 4 MP ultrapixels
htc one all the way... coz xz has snapdragon S4 pro while this one has next gen snapdragon 600 cpu... way faster than S4 pro... check out benchmarks... it kills xz in looks... xz looks like a brick while htc one wid curved back will feel great in hands... UI of xz is good but that of one is great... most of ppl dont care for dust or water resistant features... u say its a copy of bbz10 so?? does bbz10 supports android?? ppl buying android will sure buy this... they dont care whether its looks, design is a copy or not... its only apple who cares n thats y it caused them n their fans got reduced... 64 gb doesnt need any additional sd storage while for me n many ppl even 32gb is enough... battery is ok but if android gives u a much bigger battery then also its not sufficient coz android eats a lot of power... featurewise its better than xz... i cant comment on camera unless i check them both...
4mp is correct. YES IT IS.
according to the preview for htc one it really does have a 4mp shooter, sacrificing megapixels for better sensor technology.
it is NOT 14mp.
AnonD-86903, 20 Feb 2013this phone has nothing special. the design is a copy of BB Z10. the specs are almost the same ... moreU were the one telling others not to praise other phones on xz's thread right? yet ur the same.
There's nothing of substance in ur comment maybe apart from the fact that one's camera not being as gud as was being touted(as recent images show) but same was the case with xz and where u urself admit that z's screen is bad.
Final word - zip it and let the people decide what they want.
I think someone made a mistake I think the primary camera should be 14 megapixels instead of 4.
A 4MP camera?! Is this right? Have GSMArena just posted the information wrong or am i missing something?
Can anyone please explain me the concept of the 4MP ultrapixel camera ? I was watching the unveiling event live, but they could have thrown a bit more light on the new camera concept. TIA.
