What is all the Bitch about the HTC M8 One?? Unless you are a Professional Photographer the M8 Camera is as good as any I have used including the S5,Note3 etc,i bought it to use as a phone and for the Speed and the Speaker Clarity.
AnonD-293207, 11 Aug 2014Just pointing out to all. MP means NOTHING at all when it comes to quality of photo. It is jus... moreStill the camera resolution matters a bit in the image quality.
I don't think this phone Is a match for my blackberry Z10 :/
darkgamer, 11 Aug 2014Well resolution means something. It isn't the most important thing but it is important. Fir... moreWe don't have to mention the same thing over and over again. Even a little kid knows that cameras on recent HTC flagship phones are terrible. It's just a past, nothing can change now. The most unforgivable thing is, HTC made the same mistake two in a row. There is a new HTC phablet phone has to come near soon. Let's hope at least it will have a better camera, but I don't think so. Then let's keep a hope for the next year HTC flagship phone.
I have been using this phone for over a month now . Previously I was using iPhone for one year and note 2 was my last android phone .
Now people have been posting lot of negative reviews about the camera quality. Pls check it once more is my suggestion . Now comes the low light performance of the camera anyone can go on instagram and find out the HTC M8 picture quality and u will stop complaining(checkout the 3d effect u will freak out )
The build quality no one can say anything.
Call quality is excellent .
And one top of it no lag no hang and no autoshut down like all the other android devices
And lastly bettery life goes on and on .I am a heavy user and my working hours are long and this phone clearly surpasses 9-10 hours with medium to heavy usage .

First telling you that I know all about the ùltrapixel tech and related matters.
So let's find out, dies resolution matter???
1. It allows you to zoom in more while maintaining clarity.
2. It allows to crop photos.
3. It gives more details to work with and viewing on high resolution monitors.
4. It allows to use super sampling in videos and record 4k videos.
5. You can enable super sampling and get some perfect lower resolution shots.
I guess these advantages clearly outweight the only advantage of a lower resolution sensor, better low light performance.
Okm now let's consider this phone's camera and ignore the details and megapixel. What you guys assume is that this is a perfect camera beside that. But that's plain wrong.
1. Firstly, the lens used is an insanely cheap one and hence results in edge softness and chromatic aberration. Also purple fringing is apparent. Plus the outer lens is prone to scratches.
2. Secondly, the dynamic range is very very low. Couple that with a bad HDR algorithm and you really get over or under exposed images.
3. The exposure settings are very bad. It uses spot exposure which adjusts the whole scene according to the point in focus rather than for the whole scene.
This is a great phone crippled by the camera. I've used the camera of this one a lot and couldn't find anything to like in it except the bright low light photos and the really fast camera.
Perfect phone i ever use, with the boom sound speaker and amzing 5 inch display make this m8 perfect.
Just pointing out to all. MP means NOTHING at all when it comes to quality of photo. It is just the physical size of the photo.
For example 2MP is 1920x1080 resolution, most if not all people would say pictures can look great at this resolution. Where 3MP is standard 2K and so on. No camera should be jugged by how many pixels it has, rather by how it uses them.
It is kind like buying a printer that can do 9000 DPI. The DPI means nothing if it is blurry.
This is why this wonderful site gives us examples of the camera in a controlled setting. Use them as a guide NOT how many pixels something has.
There's a big fuss about the camera but believe me it's good when it comes to low light performance but in bright condition where the problem begins. Overall it takes nice snaps though you can't zoom with 4mp. True camera lover should make their way to s5 or z2 or g3 but if you want a premium feel in an android device and happy to take snaps without zooming then its the best out there. Good luck..
Can somebody plzzz tell me about the camera performance of M8 ??
What is Ultrapixel ??
Is there any difference between HTC M8 4MP and a normal 4MP camera ??
Is the picture quality better than SGs5 & Xperia Z2 ??
Plzzzzz I need help, since I'm about to buy a phone so I'm confused !!
took mine back, the camera wasnt good at all. I use my phone to take pictures of the kids and 4MP isn't good enough. They have to compete with the Samsung and I feel they haven't done so with this phone. Disappointed to say the least. waiting for the iphone 6.
I hate this phone. I am now using my very old Samsung Galaxy S3 and happy.
the camera lense cracked. World wide common issue without damage to the phone.
the lense cover blurred also world wide issue but HTC in Australia are not helping. Need to be in the USA for free repairs.
They wany $400 for the repair. This happened only days after buying.
just google HTC m8 cracked and toy see the reports on many sites.
wish I bought a S5 now have to wait 20 months to upgrade.
will never buy HTC ever again. Pity 5 years ago my HTC desire was great.
I have a problem. My HTC One M8 I can send and recieve both my e-mails from Gmail and ntlworld but cannot see or read my mail from ntlworld. Can someone help me. Vodafone who is my provider cannot help and Virginmedia I cannot talk to. They keep asking for my account number but I dont have one. ??
