>What the fuck where HTC thinking?
* Lowest common denominator.
* Engineering to price point.
* Market differentiation. (I forget the correct term, it's where they purposely shit-up a product to make a lower tier for the purpose of creating market striations)
I mounted it on my atv and recorded myself doing sik stunts and the constant vibration of it all ended up fucking up the camera. Now whenever I try and use the front facing camera it makes an irritating buzzing sound and won't focus. The only way I can use it now is by holding a magnet next to the lens
>20mp sony camera
>implying the optics are anywhere near good enough to take advantage of a 20 MP CCD
There's a reason iPhone photos are better even though they're taken with a "lower spec camera".
They weren't thinking. They haven't been thinking since early 2011 (around the time the One X came out). That's why they lost the Android crown to Samsung and are now close to dead.
R.I.P. in Peace HTC.
It's usually less about the optics and more the software these days when talking about smartphone cameras. Sony and HTC both fail at this.
iPhone is now decidedly middle of the pack now. Samsung and LG are the new kings of smartphone cameras. Even the shitty Lumia 950 has a better camera than the iPhone 6S/6S Plus.
I find myself always trying to up sell how good my camera in on my HTC one m8. Reality is, it's not that great at all. The best phone I've ever owned but I really just want one with a decent camera.
I have no gripes with the camera, but I am not a person that takes a lot of photos to begin with.
However, both the 3.5mm plug as well as the USB plug have become really loose from daily use. I have by now stopped using my phone for music.
How is android 6 on the M8, m8s?
Yuropoor here, still waiting for that upgrade. They promised it'd be available until the end of 2015. Almost middle of January already and they're still unable to keep their promise.
