Just because the pixels is 8 times larger doesn't makes it take 8 times the detail a regular pixel would. And it doesnt add the number of pixels in any way. 1 large pixel is still 1 pixel, not 8 pixels. Your knowledge on how a camera works is pretty inadequate.
AnonD-116479, 03 May 2014The HTC M8 have already won the crown. The HTC M8 was awarded the "Best Phone" at th... moreYeah you're right about the m8 being great and all. But what you said about the m8 being the best phone during mwc 2014 is downright wrong. The htc one m8 wasn't even announced during mwc 2014 which was held in february. The m8 was only annouced and released on the 25th of march, one month after the mwc. You sir, sounds really biased as you just said things that you didn't do much research on. I'll take you're a htc fanboy as you said that the htc one m8's camera perform great in all conditions. Yeah it's true that the 4mp(ultrapixel in htc's case) rear shooter perform well in low light condition as it captures 300% more light. But in good lighting, it's performance is not even comparable to other flagships that were actually announced during the mwc 2014 which is the sony xperia z2 and the samsung galaxy s5. Read reviews comparing the three phones camera performance, the m8 have the worst performance. You can even look at the sample pictures taken by the m8, z2 and s5. Then you will see there is no doubt the m8 loses in the camera department.

Anonymous, 04 May 2014plz tell me m8 cam better than 16mp cam is it?In short, NO. 4 Megapixels (or Ultra as per hTC) can NOT beat a 16 mp snapper. Apply the math here. 16 mp will catch more details, so if you need a larger print 16 mp will be definitely better than 4 mp.
However per pixel quality will be better on hTC, as the sensor size is bigger. Also as the sensor size is bigger it will allow more light, thus resulting at better night / low light shots.
If you need only camera in a phone, then M8 is not your thing. However those people who purchase a mobile phone for camera only, well I doubt their judgement!
Had the m8 for a couple of weeks, and it's an excellent phone.
The camera has superb low-light performance, with good shots at night without flash. The extra functionality, such as ufocus, while not particularly necessary, are fun to play around with. Zooming in reveals some noise, which may not be the case with higher megapixel cameras, but I don't need to print or crop, so that's not a problem - and I prefer having the low-light capabilities. I never use the front selfie camera, but I guess some people might find that useful.
What I find really stunning is the sound quality. With headphones, the quality is pretty much like any decent phone. But the speaker quality is amazing, with excellent volume, bass, and a nice rich tone. I don't like wearing headphones all the time, and often when by myself prefer a more natural sound. Watching videos with such good audio is a joy. I would recommend the phone for this feature alone.
A couple of minor complaints: the volume button is a bit sensitive, so I often find myself lowering the volume or silencing the phone by mistake; secondly, it's a bit slippery without the case, though I'd probably have put a case on, anyway.
Oh, and for once, most of the bloatware is actually useful (blinkfeed, for example).
Overall, a great phone.

The HTC One M8 is the BEST PHONE I have ever used. It is perfect in each and every aspect. EXCEPT the Camera. Even the iphone 4s has a better camera than the HTC One M8. other than that. The HTC ONE M8 is the BEST smartphone you will ever use.

hi guys tis not 4 mp tis is a wrong information.im a htc techniation its a 4 ultra pixels wr it observes 300 percent more light than a mega pixel
Soo, has anyone in here complaining about the camera actually used the new m8?
For a phone and in direct comparison with the iPhone, z1 compact it's on par with them and if anything has more accurate colour reproduction. That's just the rear camera. The front camera blows everything else away, helped me catch the most memorable "selfie" pic with my daughter yesterday.

But you know nowadays people don't carry a camera everywhere, and what if something happens worth capturing? That's why people look for a capable camera. I am not saying M8's camera isn't capable, but if you look at the rivals, that is Z2, G2, S5, even S4, well you know the answer.
I personally am a hater of mobile phone cameras, I use, or try to use my NEX always, but that always is not always, but my cell phone is always with me.
Hope you understand what I am trying to say.
pls guys!! all the discussion here are CAMERAs??? is this a phone or camera??? yeah! we all know that is has good camera. pls. i need to know the performance!! total package.. if u all keep discussing about camerA then go buy a DSLR for sure its far more better than this. thanks.
pls!!! i need an opinion for total package!! not ALL CAMERA IS GOOD BLAH BLAH!! if you all keep telling about camera's then go buy a DSLR...!!

What I love about htc is music qulty is the best camper to my note 3
Oh, and don't doubt the 2600mah performance.. It's as long lasting as the note 2 I had.. Which packs with a 3K++mah
Just got my M8 today Malaysia.. From Bright star distribution.. Couldn't be happier to get this baby..
Awesome built, seamless performance, and less fussy then Samsung...
I had been using S2,then S4, 5 and 5S and can say nothing beats it.. The audio quality, the built, and os optimisation..
Hesitate? Don't! Get this and you will not regret each penny spent on it!
One of the best phone i ever had no complain about this phone. its a high end build quality.the picture and sound are superb.
Keke, 03 May 2014I concur with you fellow. I used HTC M7 with no camera issues but people were complaining. Now... moreThe HTC M8 have already won the crown. The HTC M8 was awarded the "Best Phone" at the MWC 2014. So, there is no any doubt this the best pone in the world right now.
Most people don't think analytically and they don't concern about the real-life performances. All they concern is specs. They think that higher specs mean the performances are better. I have used the M7 and currently I'm using the M8. I've been using this phone since two weeks and I'm extremely happy with it. Similarly, few of my friends who bought the Galaxy S5 are now quite disappointing with it. They were really impressed about the M8 after I showed it and some of them are now planning to sell their S5 and buy a M8.
They showed me how lagging is the S5 while my M8 is super smooth. The camera of S5 is only good at daylight, its law-light performances are horrible. But the M8 is good at any condition, no matter what you can take a perfect photo. The only advantage of the S5 over the M8 is zooming capability. The M8 camera is not quite good at zooming because of its lower resolution.
Overall the M8 is the best phone in the world right now.
