even if the HTC ONE was a perfect 4mp camera, which means every pixel has perfect detail and there is no noise or suppression, it would be losing against s4 in terms of detail. almost perfect 5 mp shots are there on dslr's and the great nokia 808. and the HTC ONE is far from perfect. it displays purple fringing and oversharpening and has a bad habit of overexposing photographs.
yes the optical image stabilization is a good plus and it surely helpsin video recording but really, very less people focus on video quality(as long as its 1080p) and the difference between galaxy s4 and HTc one is not that big in video(htc being on a small lead). the difference almost diminishes when you turn on video stabilization on s4.
more people zoom in and see their photos(i've a very bad habit) and that's the major reason why i chose galaxy s4 over htc one.
GSMArena" its still camera was really nowhere near the level of the Samsung Galaxy S4 13MP shooter. Ultrapixels or not, 4MP can barely rival 2010 flagships on most occasions." this is really copied and pasted.
i know most people don't need more than 4mp and it is fine for facebook uploads but not comparable to the s4.
you can please go to htc one section. you will not see me there as true satisfied users don't troll on other mobile's section.
also i did a lot of research before buying s4 and i found out that both are equally great devices and it all boils down to personal preferences: a great aluminium unibody and speakers vs great stuff under the hood and great camera.
good day. sorry if i'm aggressive

HTC recently released a firmware update for the camera improvement that promising HTC One camera quality even better. Those cameras equally perform better. However HTC One have some advantages that S4 haven't, such as Optical Image Stabilization, Better ISO capability for capture a photo in low light conditions and It has Wide Angle lens for better landscape photography.
The blur you talking about when a photo zoomed it called "pixels". It's normal, you can see the pixels of a photo when you zoomed or cropped. Even you took a photo from DSLR camera like Nikon D5200 it's blur when you zoomed. However I'm not much impress about phone cameras, I know what ever phone you bought they would not giving a 100% perfect photographic experience, each phone's camera have it's own problems. That's why I'm using DSLR cameras.
s4 is the smartest phone ever made till now,by comparing it's facilities with other phones.......
I would advise all people to wait and see what will Samsung make in august
[deleted post]Better make your own phone and put everything you want in it.

Im an Htc one owner I purchased this phone because the S4 felt like a piece of plastic in hand because well it is.
I preferred quality construction and innovative ideas over a carbon copy of the S3 deploying marketing to sell a product that by most professional reviewers is rated under the Htc one. Do you actually own the S4 or are you just and angry person who likes to try and bring people down to your level.
I recommend anyone should buy a phone also for there own needs I don't like plastic phones if im paying over nz 1000 dollars you clearly do troller.

You are just quoting what you read and then getting upset rattled. If you own and S4 and have friends with the HTC one and iPhone 5. Try some basic experiments with photo video the ultra pixal camera surprised everyone. As I said in my previous comments brand name didn't concern me overal quality and suitablity for my needs. I could write a mote detailed overview of a comparison but what for I purchased a phone for me. Anyone that gets upset over another person's opinion needs to address there own shortfall not the phones.

Terry, 22 Jun 2013I agree I can't personally understand why so many people buy the s4 over the likes of HTC one ... morein low light it can(not by far with s4 night mode) but in daylight and bright scenes the HTC ONE can't hold a candle for galaxy s4's 13 mp camera.
the difference starts when you zoom in. 4mp camera just can't match the detail levels of a 13 mp camera. you can check this very site's article of htc one vs GS4 and you will know that.
i know that 4mp is sufficient for many people but if you zoom in or make a 100% crop, HTC ONE becomes a blurry shit.
it surely has other advantages though, for example it is faster and is better in lowlight without flash(i'll use flash when its too dark though).
please don't spread false info among people and please don't troll here. say your story at HTC ONE section. they'll be pleased to know that.
in short, GALAXY S4 CAMERA WIPES THE FLOOR WITH THE HTC ONE.
good day troll. be happy with your htc one.
