5 ultra pixel that's very good because 4 up is the same as about 13 mp so that's very good and that with 2 cameras
hasher22, 19 Feb 2014HTC has an ultra pixel camera....... learn the difference before bashing a productUmp camera is great in low light condition. And that's all, nothing more. Because it captures more light. Or in full day, when 99% of people are taking pictures, the camera is less than mediocre on HTC ONE. Since 2007, when I've discovered HTC Tytn II, I had only HTC phones. I loved One, but its camera was the reason why I didn't upgrade my HTC ONE X.
First iPhone had crappy cameras, but in this compartment Apple learned its lessons and now it has one of the best. Same with Samsung..and I'm not even talking about Nokia.
Liking or not, smartphones are replacing point and shot cameras. And 5ump is a 2009/2010 standard (first on HTC HD if I remember correctly ) not a 2014 one.
It's a great ideea to have 2 backside cameras for Lytro effect and overall better quality..but if, ad least, they have 8mp. I'm not crying for 20mp, but 8 mp is minimum decency for a flagship.
But, actually, the pricing will be the most important aspect. No one expects Motorola G price, but if you show off with a phone with lower specs than competitors with same OS -Android- (and for now this is what it looks like, if you compare it with Samsung SG5) but with the same or higher price..bankruptcy will be imminent.
5MP camera!!definitely no 4K video cause you need at least 8.25MP(= 3820x2160 pixels) sensor to capture it.
nothing interesting for 2014 for htc
lets see what other brands got to offer
Learn the mistake for the camera purple tint ha! Do not release prototype product otherwise consumers will got suffering. Good luck HTC and Congrats for the new technology.
Scratch, 13 Feb 2014as always CAMERA must suck? :D there are such phones with OIS and HTC not even come to 8mp at ... moreHTC has an ultra pixel camera....... learn the difference before bashing a product
you just try any htc phones and forget other brands
one =great best2013
HTC are great... I always love HTC. I'm used HTC one and one x plus . But...why htc didn't put tegra 4 or 3 On all HTC model?
And HTC should put some thing to make My phone not over heating. Cause I like to play game.. ;(
HTC for new generation smartphones it's fake fake fake, for many reasons, such as graphic plates, to the camera,I do not know that what lies stands in markets and it keeps the price as Samsung, Apple and Nokia, the graphic part is there is no weaker than acer, asus and Chinese smartphones :(, htc is a shame smartphone !!!

Changing the design dramatically will only appeal to people who want to show off that their device its the newest model and not the older version. Li-on batteries loose their capacity about 8 % every year it depends. Also overall life expectancy various out can be 2 as you said , 3, or less in general but it also depends on the quality as I said my friend is still using a 3gs and its battery life still is great . That is a 5 year old phone Motorola usually produces some great quality batteries too. Cloud services I mean not just storing your files and data on the cloud because I totally agree that is not as fast as getting to your data internally.But what I meant is this today many services such as for example Spotify you get all your songs on the cloud and every time you open it it is there on the app ,that's a convinience. Or Netflix you get all your movies there you don't have to store anything on your device and the plus your data never gets lost. But I guess in developing countries these paid for subscription services are not popular or its not the education to use them yet. If you want more storage buy a higher memory version of the phone instead of having to deal with detachable parts inside your phone. As I said memory cards on a smartphone do more good than bad and all the people I know who have an S4 nobody uses a memory card.

Now about the battery. If the life cycle of the non-removable battery is about 2 years, then it is OK, so you will not need to change it too soon(many people are not using a smart phone more than 2 years). You know that a non-replaceable battery change is not cheap.
You mentioned the cloud service. Cloud is still a feature which is not used by many people. If you ask me, I'd rather store my videos and pictures on my phone's memory. It is easier to access them, and you don't need Internet connection. Sorry, but people wants a memory card slot.

Changing the design every year of their primary flagship will make them like a clueless company experimenting every year hoping to increase profits by design just like LG was a couple of years ago. HTC has a good standart for their design they should follow that. I understand there are many people who want removable batteries on their phones but if you pu into a non removable battery phone a battery which is of high quality and last through the years it is th same. I don't see many people taking advantage of removable batteries and keeping multiple spare batteries on their pockets they just are thinking of the battery dies they will be able to replace it by themselves. A friend of mine still has an iPhone 3gs and its battery lasts as long as phones with good battery life and he has never changed it. But it seems rekindle battery is a selling point for many people on android phones so HTC should think of that. But as for design changes there is absolutely no need to make overhauls. As for micro sd card I don't see the point of them anymore taking in account we use many cloud services now days and HTC one came with 32 gigabytes standard. If anything they do more bad than good slow down performance, get viruses etc
