HTC One camera compared with Apple iPhone 5: more samples surface
posted by Victor H. / Feb 22, 2013, 9:19 AM
The biggest advantage of the HTC One are its UltraPixels, a marketing term HTC uses to refer to the 2.0-micrometer pixels on the device, significantly larger than the ones on competing cameraphones like the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III and Nokia Lumia 920.
And while we are eagerly anticipating the device at our offices to start snapping and bring you a detailed camera comparison with real samples from it, CNET Asia got one early and show us the first comparison shots between the HTC One and the Apple iPhone 5.
We have to warn you, though, that the shots were captured on a pre-release version of the HTC One with non-final software, so the images might improve in the final version.
There are a few general notes that we want to make about the images. It is clear that using a 4.3-megapixel camera on the HTC One translates into less fine detail in most images, but remarkably the sensor captures much more light and the images two to three times smaller in size, varying from 600KB to 1.7MB depending on the conditions. In most images, the difference between the two is clearly visible and we could almost instantly say which image is taken on the HTC One and which one was on the iPhone 5 since the HTC One had the more natural looking colors, capturing more light in underlit conditions.
We’ve reposted their images with some commentary right below, but for the full coverage feel free to check out the original article at the source link below.

Of course it has to! Wouldn't make sense if, with all the 'Ultrapixel' and 'OIS' features, iPhone 5 still beats it. Point to note though...except for the low light shot, iPhone 5's result is still very well comparable.

oh please, apple don't need that ultrapixel tech. they'll come with something better like they always do. unlike htc that take iphone 5 back cover, slap a screen on it, and call it the 'one' . and about widget, its already exist on mac osx long before android even there...

oh please, linux has 'widget' after apple put it on their dashboard. don't kid yourself. and i'm not comparing PC OS and mobile OS. i just had enough people spreading BS and saying iOS copy android widget. as if apple don't/never have any widgets on their sleeve.

LMAO! So HTC One beautiful design, but not only fail in making it with removable battery and Micro SD slot. HTC One 4 Ultra Pixel truly eats dirt. I can not wait for HTC announcement on they're 2nd and 3rd earnings. I'm positive it will be a BIG FAT FAIL once again. I am so glad, this will be a swift kick in the nut to HTC. Teach them a lesson to give the Android community what they want. If we wanted a phone with non removable battery and Micro SD card. I would of bought an iCrap (iPhone). LMAO!!!!

Wtf... OK. So what if someone wants an android phone with a good amount of internal storage but no SD? Shouldn't that be an option? I actually prefer no Sd but enough internal storage since SD memory can definitely slow down a phone. I've had some bad experiences. Don't assume the whole Android community wants one thing. Oh, and apparently you just want less choice of you want HTC to go out of business.

There already is one on another site (the name escapes me) you can search for it. It only includes 3 pics which range from overcast to complete darkness. The Lumia 920 dominated in all three photos with clearer details and much less noise. There is, however, a disclaimer about the One possibly using unfinished processing software, etc, but from those pics the Nokia was the clear victor.
