Last year, HTC made a bet on putting a 4 megapixel camera in its flagship smartphone, the One. I still haven’t had the opportunity to handle one till today, but reviews everywhere are almost unanimous that the UltraPixel thing, as it is branded, doesn’t measure up to the competition. This year, HTC has stuck with a 4 megapixel camera once again on its just announced flagship, the HTC One 2014.
Yes; we know that image quality is not only about megapixels, and so HTC is hoping that the bigger pixels on the 4 megapixel sensor will make up for the difference. It doesn’t seem to have done that in the opinion of lots of reviewers. Personally, I think that HTC needs to forget about this 4 megapixels thing.
Whether or not you have owned an HTC One, what are your thoughts on this subject?
