Then even they jumped ship on ultra pixels instead of improving it they again neglected OIS and didn't use a good enough aperture/lense.
It was all their fault. Plus the people flare.
Like you said. Jumping to 8mp with the M8 would have helped alot. Even better 12mp. Even if for the M9. While retaining OIS abs improving the lense too
AnonD-292897, 04 Nov 2015whats next? switching to ios?How is improving technology equivelant to dramatically downgrading software?

It's not bad. Is just not the amazing winner they think
Omar Mohamed, 03 Nov 2015bad move
htc tried that beforeNo HTC had a good idea.
But failed at using it correctly.
Exorcism by downgrading it rather than upgrading it in the following generations.
As well add give difference in website size, type, pixel count, lense, image processor, and image processing.

Give me a 1" or a 1/1.2" sensor and we will talk. Well, I may settle for 1/1.7", a format that used to be popular in enthusiast compact cameras before Sony RX100 rocked that sector.
The difference between the 1/2.3" they used so far and 1/2" is barely worth mentioning.

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2015Do you not understand that megapixels aren't everything when it comes to picture quality?suddenly the megapixels aren't everything
Nice flagship but im still going for the microsoft lumia 950 xl. Best carl zeiss camera quality evur! Android is so power hungry.
samsung want to apple that how to make a 12MP camera . ha ha ha ....
ithehappy, 03 Nov 2015LOL! You mean sensor's size is symmetrical to megapixel count?
Didn't know that!Yes . 99% of phone sensor follow the rule "bigger Mp = bigger sensor "
The only exception is nexus 6p and 5x .
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2015Wait, low specs, isn't that Apple's thing?Do you not understand that megapixels aren't everything when it comes to picture quality?
GSMArena vision was shallow. Do you ever own Canon 1Dx, Nikon D4s? How many MP does they have when compare to their own brand mid level FF DSLR?
Samsung knows its not about MP anymore.

A bigger sensor (or sensor at same size with less pixels) means means less noise because each pixel gets more light. Buyers keeps buying higher pixel counts, so the manufacturers keep bumping them up. In this case, going back down and using a bigger sensor will mean better low light pictures (without having to downsize to reduce noise).
