HTC should put this in their original M8. They want to be different, but make mistakes again and again.
if this is true, there's nothing stopping me from buying the m8. it's the camera that makes me hesitant about it.
Finally htc selected normal pixel camera. Where is ultrapixel camera? It's better a 13MP ultrapixel duo camera.
5.2 inch screen. could they just keep the same dimensions and just get rid of the bezel and htc logo?
Poor users who bought this with 4 ultrapixel camera. It is not fair :-)
Nobody like the ultra-pixel cameras. They were a huge disappointment. It was an interesting idea, but HTC failed to do it well.
They can't just throw in a mediocre 1/3 sensor with fewer (therefore larger) pixels and call that an innovation. It was more like a way of using a cheap part and calling it an innovation.
At 1/3 sensor with fewer larger pixels captures no more light than a sensor with more smaller pixels. That's just dumb. Anyone who knows anything about physics and camera design could have seen through this gimmick the day HTC announced it.
If they want bigger pixels they should have used a larger sensor, at least 1/2.3 (like in the five year old Nokia N86). That would have been an improvement.
And I still think the only thing that can be said about the duo camera is WTF? Get rid of that and bring back OIS which was a real benefit.
HTC, LG and Samsung made the best phones this year...
The chinese are in their back !
How long they can keep their leadership ?
They finally figured out they were going to have to screw M7 and M8 owners sooner or later by leaving the ultrapixel crap at the curb, thus admission by ditching that it was never really that good.
The fact that they're not waiting until they release the M9 goes to show how urgent they are to get rid of it.
5.2" display? Its gonna be a big phone! Otherwise I'd go for it :-(
Mike, 26 Sep 2014The biggest things stopping me from purchasing an M8: 4MP camera and power button at the top. ... moreBig phones are not for short hands.
And that is a 4 Ultra Pixel camera, by the way.
It was an invention only for those who understand how outstanding it is.
AnonD-5000, 26 Sep 2014That big eye in the pic is so creepy.It's the eye of illuminati. :p
destro, 26 Sep 2014Amen...
Just one more thing and it could be near perfect: splash resistance at least.Err, the original M8 is already splash resistant...
And WTF HTC, why did we have to put up with the UltraCRAP for two years just for you to give up on Ultrapixel completely, at least release an 8 mp Ultrapixel FFS.
would like to see if Quad HD feature added to the Flagship HTC M8 eye that would beat all Galaxy Note 4 & LG G3
bubu, 26 Sep 2014Way not 1 inch sensor camera?Erm, because a 1-inch is huge and would require a very think body to fit the optics in. The 1020 only had a 1/1.5-inch (2/3 of an inch) and that required a huge hump to fit the optics in.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2014This is what the original HTC One (M8) should be.Amen...
