When your motto is "I prefer honest companies like Nokia, Microsoft and Apple. Companies like Samsung and Google whitout morale, and constantly acting evil, can't do so without comments. Currently using Nokia Lumia 920 and iPad.. you lose all credibility bro

I don't know why everybody is hating on HTC's Ultrapixels. Does nobody remember how bad HTC's standard 8MP cameras were back in 2012?

The One's Ultrapixel camera was a definite step up from the likes of the DNA and One X of 2012. Also, that article was made before the update to the One, which brought great camera improvements, see here;

If anything, we should be sad that HTC hasn't put their Ultrapixel camera on all their devices, because it's obviously superior to anything else they've come up with.

Well as someone who owned the One X and now owns the One the One X captured a bit more detail than the One(I have owned an S3 last year while i still owned my One X and the One X is a better overall camera than the S3 due to being much faster (10fps) and better low light pics). That being said the One strikes back with better life like colours, much better night pics and if you use it right you can make some impressive photos even in daylight.

If the pricing of this desire will be right it will sell well. I bet htc is already changing their strategies
