Also while MP are not everything they are half the battle. Just the same as a fast processor is just as important as well optimized system to use it.
And that's why HTC released an update that made a decent improvement to the One. And in theory the One was supposed to be better in low light, but it's not quite there yet. it's good for what it is and being it's the first Ultra Pixel in a phone.
In the future expect a far superior one from one of or all of Samsung, Sony, Nokia.
Its nice if HTC One can produce a 16/32Mb Mini version with 4.0/4.3" screen size with stock Android 4.2.2 Dual Core Krait Clocked at 1.7/1.9Ghz with 1/1.5/2G of RAM.
I wish this would come to India as well.. Samsung can't fool people for long.. HTC time to rise and show your true potential..

It is still more expensive than my Nexus 4. If it is 450, I might pick one up considering that Nexus 4 16GB is about 350 only.
following samsung (galaxy s4), I see.....well yeah, "nexus" doesn't belong to samsung, but still....I thought HTC has some confidence in them, oh well, lets just see whether this move will raise their market share or not, and btw, I'm not a samsung fan
Anonymous, 31 May 2013There should be premium phones at premium price on google store. Not just cheap phones. ... moreYes Google's vanilla android deserves a premium device but come the low-cost iphone in year-end, they should compete with a new midrange nexus that's also targeted to developing countries, please no more LG, be it samsung, htc, moto or sony.
I don't know why but I will always think the S4 is the superior device. I don't care about the build quality because I'll just buy a case or just get an awesome battery cover, which you can't do on the HTC One. And if the aluminum chips or scratches, you're doomed because you can't really fix it. In terms of everything else, the S4 is way better and is totally worth the $50 more than the HTC One on the Play Store.
Why does an unlocked google edition phone have to be available initially in US only ? Bizarre that 2 asian companies HTC and Samsung cannot make it available in Asian markets .

Kopi-O-Siew-Dai, 31 May 2013Is too expensive! With all the trademarks features gone, the price tag is just too high! Don't... moreit's not the software that makes the 4MP photos look good, it's the type of sensor they use with larger pixels that capture more light. More MP doesn't always mean better photos, and the image processing algorithms will be the same, it will just be the camera interface that changes.
Hari Love Musiz, 31 May 2013i have an doubt, my friend working in usa. but i am in india. l like to buy htc one nexus vers... morego to the specs of the htc nexus one see the bands supported, then go to wikipedia search for you operator, and see if the band they are operating matches with the one supported on the phone.
Why bother with all the versions either stock android or HTC sense or Touch Wiz. If it's plain android, all phones are the same. Only this one might be a bit faster than another one. And it seems like you guys cannot decide whether you need a 4" phone or 4.99" or 5.62" or maybe a 6.25".... Just get an iPhone will ya
Lapax, 31 May 2013Most expensive mobile on Google Play?There should be premium phones at premium price on google store.
Not just cheap phones.
Getting sick of cheap phones that cripple the experience, like low internal memory or low quality build.
Its like google is a brand for poor men, which shouldn't be the case.
