I'm more interested in camera resolution. If it's at least 8 MP then I'm fine.

And. The M8's achilles heel just might be that camera.

LMAO. Cameraphones had "Ultrapixels" longggg ago, even before the iPhone came out. HTC's innovation is in giving a sh!tty idea a fancy marketing name.

I've read a comment from someone yesterday (can't remember where) that the second sensor is in fact a IR sensor and combined with main sensor will do magic in dark scenes. Could it be that?

I agree that the htc logo on the bottom is a waste of space. Why not turn the f****** HTC logo to function as a capacitive home button? Important buttons that android phones need are just home, back and menu. And NO multitasking should not be a button coz you can just long press home to access it. Dont be lazy to long press

I honestly prefer one camera with quality than two camera, please HTC, chill out.

Cant wait for a mini version of it. 130mm pocket max friendly with a 4.7-5 screen. You can do it. Smarter use of real-estate. Same as One S sexy size but bigger screen. Here's hoping.

I guess that we don´t have to wait this much time, till March 25th, to see everything about the HTC ONE M8. Cant wait to get this phone, although i already have a flagship like the G2 i still want the HTC M8.

  • mate

it sound great with the two camera performing to give best world feeling but price is more than expected..maybe they have more others features which cost so much than m7

Brother here the dicussion is about camera.
When it comes to camera, Everybody knows HTC One Ultrapixel is not par with S4, Xperia Z, or not even Lumia 720.

Really Nokia?! Instead, I need to place my phone quite far away from the object, then reframe it to act like it is a macro shot. :/

AnonD-39337, 11 Mar 2014i think it's awkward i prefer to have just one camera but ... moreright, just marketing buff. And still no user replaceable battery, no microsd...

I don't really need 4MP bokeh effects or refocusing. Instead, I need a good low light capable camera which will at least be 13MP. Can we have something normal like that instead, HTC??

  • Paul

Still dont no the megapixel UP, I do hope it is not still 4 megapixel, the resulting image is just too small.

  • AnonD-109726

Rationality, 11 Mar 2014Still, it's all a waste of money, space, time and material ... moreI own a lumia 1020, and i can tell you the phone has huge issues with: 1. focusing in medium to low light - and yeah that does matter when you;re trying to take a familly/friends photo, 2. the time it takes to actually open the camera app, 3. Power consumption while taking photos, 4. Noise - although not as much as the htc one but seriously a ton of noise. And i would have other complaints but to the point: the lumia 1020 targets the enthusiast cameraphone photographer, not the average joe
