It's not all about megapixels. GSMarena did a great initial writeup on the special features of the M8 rear camera with the extra sensor like on real cameras. Check it out.
HTC went the right way with this camera by adding a rangefinder. As a professional photographer I always kept one camera around my neck for quick shots in public places. I set the shutter speed and f stop to achieve a very narrow field of focus. The model's hair, face and shoes werein perfect focus while everything in the background such as people eating or dog's defecating were completely out of focus. This is a great feature for those of us who want to get that perfect shot of our sweetheart while blurring out unsightly background images. This HTC One M8 camera will be great for those memorable outdoor shots.
Dual Primary camera = 4MP
Single secondary front camera = 5 MP
WOW ! amazing ! (Sarcasm personified)

Battery can't kill the battery in one day whatever you make on this phone amazing battery life
Camera sooo good and better of my old Gs4
Front camera best camera i ever see

this phone is awesome...battery life..is epic..lasted a whole day for me. .i bought it yesterday....1hr gaming and 1hr music...50-60 camera shots ...sharing photos social networking..wifi continious on...20-25 min video calls....messaging..and a little browsing....today i will test the extreme power mode...and despite tall...it is comfortable to hold in hand bcoz of less broad , rounded back....xperia z2 is too broad....sense 6 is super smooth...trust
me.works like ios...never lag or stutter....and camera is good pretty good..not bad as u think...perfect for sharing and posting.....front cam is great ...camera effects are awesome...altogether the best phone for fun
u guys just post opinions on the basis of super lack of knowledge. atleast read the full review by gsmarena itself. u dig out questions for criticism, if u really need answers than just better read the review than wasting yourtime. its just a smartphone that is designed to make your life fun. its not gona make you robocop with the high end specs. htc phones runs smoothly than any android fone available out there. better look for the positive notes and dont sway htc's buyers or the one who are willing to buy
it by ur biased comments....
Same Screen, Same Camera. Do you even know what you are talking about?
piyal, 27 Mar 2014You've just proved my point by stating that you use it for navigation purpose. How many people... morecan't manage ring tone volume because the speaker is in front? lol
how old is your phone dude?
do you think phones still only have 1 volume control so everything goes up or down when you press the volume keys?
we are in 2014
ringtone, music/video, Alarms,notifications, in-call & bluetooth all have independent volume controls that are adjusted with the onscreen slider after you press the volume keys
Its a Suicide attempt from Htc, thats why no name change only year. Cam is 4×4 8 MP but to out dated. High pitch volume on cells is lke Chinese blasters finish is lke imitation cartier not only fr looks but something inside too.
HTC must now have an open heart?
Same as the One except the M8 has the upgraded CPU and external SD slot. Boring!
piyal, 27 Mar 2014You've just proved my point by stating that you use it for navigation purpose. How many people... moreALL you are proving is how much you are stuck in the past. where cell phones were just for phone calls and SMS. wake up to 2014 man or stop commenting on smart phones, because clearly you don't need one.
no one use standalone Nav units any more because they have a smart phones. no one walks with a boom box, walk man, disc man or ipod, because they have a smart phone.
netflix on Android alone has over 50,000,000 downloads and its just one movie app.
youtube has over 500,000,000 downloads
waze NAV app (which is just one nav app has over 10,000,000 downloads
skype has over 100,000,000 downloads
all these apps are using the loud speaker which means all the people that download those apps are using the loud speaker. and you want us to believe that the loud speaker would be best on the back of the phone or on the edge to hear clearly.
You guys have a point.. the new HTC One may have a lot oh let downs due to its 4mp camera and now longer body.. but it did improve lot. im pretty sure they didnt put Beats anymore coz they dont need to. This phone is niche, meaning its only for people who actually learns to appreciate this phone. The dual cameras, I mean, have you ever seen another Phone that has dual cameras? Im not a big fan of the M8, but right now, we cant say this phone will be a blunder(atleast, not yet). We'll just see how this phone impacts the market.. Haters gown' hate..
aaj, 26 Mar 2014they have shot themselves in the foot by giving a 4mp camera!!!!It's ultrapixel 4MP camera. Search a little bit what that means.
