HTC, The Camera Makes The Argument

| February 26, 2013 | Reply

The HTC One is a smartphone for fun experiments with photos and videos. In the battle for market share smart phone manufacturers need to introduce more and more features to grab more attention for their latest models.

HTC has high hopes for its new top of the line smartphone. “Consumers will define us about the HTC one,” says CEO André Lönne Germany. This one is actually a smart, powerful Android smartphone with some fun features and an at least on paper, a very good camera.

The facts: Thanks to its aluminum shell weighs only 143 grams, the HTC one and fits comfortably in the hand. The 11.9 centimeters (4.7 inches) touch display can be operated with one hand or a thumb. The resolution is 1920 by 1080 pixels, the pixel density of 468 ppi is much larger than the iPhone 5. The device has been clocked at 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, two gigabytes of RAM and 32 or 64 gigabytes of storage. It dominates speed traps with a  fast LTE wireless standard NFC chip.


A unique feature is the camera. HTC wants to end the megapixel madness that is circulating around the brands and has now built a camera with a resolution of 13 megapixels. However, if they take leaf out of the new Sony Experia Z or the LG Optimus G, they’ll realise that more megapixels doesn’t automatically result in a better picture quality.

The image sensor on the HTC One has less than the Nokia Lumia 920 , which was believed to be the best camera in a smartphone. One of the pixels, however, are larger, the edge length is two micrometers instead of the usual 1.4 microns. This allows them to capture more light especially in low light conditions to improve and dramatically reduce the image noise. 

The disadvantage of the lower pixel count is if you want to enlarge photos on a poster. This is where you might run into a few problems. However, how many people are going to be using the device to do this? If you’re simply needing a point and shoot and then wanting to share with friends and family, then the camera has an additional function: It can be very easy to customize the images after you’ve taken a picture since it has an edit function which can be used in conjunction with many other camera functions.

I set up Hot Deals Monster because I was frustrated with the lack of deals specifically targeted to Men. I wasn't interested in cheap nappies or 10p off my next box of cornflakes. I wanted real, interesting deals that would genuinely help and save money for the male consumer.
