HTC One and the UltraPixels: the end of the megapixel war

0. phoneArena 19 Feb 2013, 11:20 posted on

HTC just confirmed the old adage "do what's right and take the consequences" with the introduction of the HTC One, which carries a humble 4 MP camera with better quality photos in an age when the marketing departments scoff at anything less than 8 MP for a flagship device...

I do think we have to wait for reviews to call it a game changer, but you have to give HTC a hand here for taking another step in the camera realm.

Not everytime. One X is a very good phone except the battery.

@vandroid

Different, but not better. The GSII looks better than the GSIII.

Right! And made with cheap plastic... You can make plastic all shiny and sh*+ but it's still plastic. Ha

I've mainly only commented on the design of it (which is absolutely beautiful, aside from the front plate which is only ok), but overall I think the One is an absolutely amazing device from what I've read. All my expectations from it were met, and I can't wait to get some hands on time with it myself in March to decide if it's right for me or not. Another thing, the carrier availability list was a very nice thing to look at, that was always one of HTC's downfalls, lack of availability.

I'm not sure which processor you were wishing for on the One, were you expecting the 600?

63. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4275; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Either the 600 or the Tegra 4

It's just stretched out 4S with a metal back plate and a colored metal band. They look fairly similar.

Htc one has 1080p screen, optical image stabilizator, like lukia 920 does, hdr video on both cameras, slow motion, hdr microphone, ultrapixel camera, 32/64 Gigs, and the probably will offer extra storage on Dropbox, highest ever ppi468, dual speakers...

I'll reserve my judgement until actual samples are posted, but I absolutely agree that MP count is a marketing tool. Bur for zoom and cropping reasons, I still prefer 8MPs.

You don't need a SD slot with 64GB of internal storage.

SD cards can have other purposes, not just memory expansion.

HTC, no. Don't come up with terms. It's as silly and bad as retina display.

Wow.. finally some common sense when talking cameras. it's about time!

Couple that with front facing speakers.. and it's a big step forward!

Sadly.. no removable battery or SD slot.. no dice for me. If it had the battery life of my Note2, I'd be tempted.. but There is NO way HTC has come that far.. lol
