Photographer puts HTC One’s camera to work: here are the results
posted by Victor H. / Feb 14, 2014, 5:06 AM
To illustrate that, photographer Mahmoud Mfinanga who goes by the nickname emmazedphotog, showed that you can achieve a lot with the HTC One and enjoy using it along the way. Mfinanga actually praises the camera saying:
“The HTC One's camera is remarkably amazing. The f/2.0 aperture size really becomes useful in situations where your environment may lack a good amount of light.”
Admittedly, he does not like the interface, and we can whole-heartedly agree that digging up options can be quite a pain. Nonetheless, the photographs he captured are ‘remarkably amazing’, if we could quote the author himself. Take a look - all that’s used are VSCO Cam’s amazing filters and the HTC One's stock camera app.
- Display 4.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(18h 3G talk time)
Great pics but I think you need to be pro to get these results. As an average user, I doubt I can replicate them with the same artistry.

You don't necessarily need to be a professional, but you do need to know how to use your chosen equipment. This goes with any camera you choose.

Agreed... I loved my Xperia Acro S camera after a couple of practice and basic photography interest... After learning to tweak metering, ISO, exposure, it is one of the best camera phones for its time... But I admit that when I handed it to someone else that does not know how to use it, the results are usually disappointing (specially in low light) I have compared my pictures to iPhone 4, 4s and 5, and I can get better results most of the time... except for indoor soft snaps, almost any other type of scene, including night landscape shots, the Xperia can give better results. I have yet to use deeply newer devices, to compare fairly.

As a matter of fact, the photos on the HTC one is above average but what puts it down to just 'above average' rather then excellent is the low resolution. If the HTC one had a 5 ultrapixel then HTC one will be one of the best.

I really don't see the amazing quality about these photos when talking about the technical aspects. I mean, the person who took them obviously has some vision, but the photos themselves could have been taken with any mobile phone. They're not the kind of photos that truly show the capabilities of a camera. Since the photographer has an HTC One, these are pretty much the only kind of photos he could take without bringing out the camera's shortcomings.

Did you even read the article? “The HTC One's camera is remarkably amazing. The f/2.0 aperture size really becomes useful in situations where your environment may lack a good amount of light.” This is true as an HTC One owner, while other phones can only shoot with flash (ruining the photo) at night the One can shoot without flash photo 6 is a good example of that. And are you blind or something? I saw a Nexus 5 and an iPhone 5/5S on the photos so i doubt the photographer hasn't touched other mobile phones.

Never said he doesn't/couldn't use other phones. The article, however, is about photos taken with HTC One. By "other phones" you clearly don't mean Nokia, for example, whose phones take much better low-light photos (even without a flash).
