How to take better photos and videos with your HTC One (M8)
Like it or not, it doesn't seem like HTC is going to abandon its UltraPixel camera technology anytime soon. The unique camera, which relies on a low-res sensor with large pixels instead of going for the highest megapixel count possible, should theoretically produce excellent photos by capturing more light than a typical camera sensor. Yet in reality, the snappers on most high-end smartphones outperform HTC's UltraPixel cam, especially when it comes to details captured in the shot. 

Still, this doesn't mean that the UltraPixel camera is a bad one. Quite the opposite – it can take pretty pictures and videos despite having just 4MP to work with. And it might serve you even better if you're familiar with all its modes, settings, and peculiarities. Below we've compiled a list of 11 tips and tricks on taking better photos and videos with your HTC One (M8). Go check them out, and if you feel like adding a tip of your own, the comments section below is all yours.
