HTC releases a software update for the One's camera, doesn't add more ultrapixels

0. phoneArena 24 Apr 2013, 05:27 posted on

HTC really took a gamble this year by equipping its flagship smartphone with a 4 MP camera. It's clear that while many users should know that megapixels aren't everything by now, there will still be some that will just go for the camera with the highest number...

Phone arena is totally biased for sure.
Why would they make such an news title to make sacarsm of HTC One?
"HTC releases a software update for the One's camera, doesn't add more ultrapixels"
what is the meaning of adding' One's camera, doesn't add more ultrapixels ' ??
I love how PA just keep making news title bashing htc..

First: "The update doesnt add more ultrapixels" wtf is this?? Has there been any update in history to increase the mexapixel? Second, dear PA, your htc ones camera is either faulty or has one of the earliest pre-release softwares! Chek out the reviews of final units sold by at&t or Sprint and you will get my point... Third, whoever has got a decent smartphone from '12 or '11 knows that more than 70% of shots they take suffer from low light, so One's camera is clearly better than all other phones in 70% of scenarios (along with lumia920) and nothing bad in clear daylight (the remaining 30% of shots)

You're a bit short in humor these days, my friend. There are reasons for the joke.

The first point indeed sounds like a joke to kids like you, but hopefully a criticize to the author/writer! the second and third also only make sense to grown-ups!

I know, it is a crying shame that it doesn't increase the amount of ultrapixels. Maybe in the next update. I heard this one doesn't increase your amount of RAM either, luckily you can get more by downloading it from herewww.downloadmoreram.com/

What is ultrapixel mean with only 4mp, so Nokia 41mp is gigapixel. HTC One is a loser and HTC company will go bankruptcy with HTC First Facebook phone is another crappy phone.

Much better for you to go educate yourself about bigger sensors, pixels, and why it is called ultrapixel...

They are NOT called Ultra Pixels due to the One's small camera sensor. Yes, small 1/3' sensor. Bigger pixels is the main feature of The One's Camer, hench it is called Ultra PIXELS and not Ultra Sensor. Now, the 808s 1/1.2' and the 3 year old N8s 1/1.8' are bigger sensors than every other phone followed by the sensor sizes in the Nokia N86, N95/82 and so forth.

I think PA has been bought out by Samsung for the week. They used to love the One and now all they do is talk sh!t about it. Time to move on to another website where opinions are honest and not sporadic like a woman's hormones during their period.

I fine the last photo of HTC to be more defined than S4.

The fabric that Mario is laying on is very defined on the One shot, whereas S4 is more blurry.

HTC wins it for me.
