HTC One UltraPixel camera tips and tricks review
With the so-called UltraPixel camera in the HTC One the company went off the beaten path of increasing the megapixel count, putting a sensor with both larger than typical pixel size, and optical image stabilization for a double whammy at low-light and motion shots, which are traditionally the weakest point for smartphone cameras.

In our grand camera bash, the One did fine, but not the best job overall, especially in daytime shots, where the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 took the cake with sharper and more detailed photos most of the time. Where it shone in comparison, however, were low-light and night shots, as well as video stabilization, and only the Nokia Lumia 920, with an elaborate OIS system of its own, can rival it when the light goes down, and you don't have a tripod handy.

The HTC One, however, offers plenty of camera settings to tinker with, which can improve your shots beforehand, and a handy Auto Enhance feature to pimp them up afterwards, so check out these few tips in the slideshow below, and be patient, as the pics might take a while to load.
