Verge say "Shots only good enough for Facebook and instagram" - so what, i'm not taking pictures to print on 2 foot high canvas, I have a 'proper' camera for that. You will never get brilliant shots in a smartphone, simple. I think people are forgetting that if you want good pictures, you need a dLSR or similar and are expecting miracles that defy physics with a tiny lens and sensor. Some realism please.
Real world is what I care about - my real world. If pics look great on my phone and great on my 27" iMac i'm happy. Low light performance IS important to me, I think the Zoe mode is going to be a godsend for me as i'm always snapping Lucie and missing the exact right shot - this should fix that. The camera on the one is as much about software as hardware.
Aaargh, gimme stock/AOSP anytime. Maybe CM with the HTC camera software for Zoe (being able to pick frame by frame which shot) would be a decent compromise.
I like AOSP too, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by Sense 5, it's a lot 'flatter'. There's not much where you can't load up the AOSP equivalents anyway.
4.7", woohoo, so glad HTC havne't gone mad with everyone else who has gone 5".... how does the size compare to the Nexus 4? Which I feel is my size limit.
Any chance of a side by side snap with the Nexus 4? Specs suggest HTC One is just 3.5mm taller, 5mm slimmer and 2mm thicker than the LG. How does the HTC feel in comparison?
Having used a Butterfly J for the past week or two I am really glad they went 4.7" too. It is indeed slightly taller than the N4 which in turn is slightly wider, it feels smaller I think because of the curved back.
It seems that until companies take the Droid Razr maxx route and sacrifice device slimness over battery life, then no phone will last a day, especially with 1080p screens, bigger/faster CPU and features.
I've heard good things about the battery life... I expect it to be at least as good as the N4, maybe better. Definitely better than the Xperia Z! Take reviews written in 36 hours complaining about battery life with a HUGE pinch of salt.
RGB, nice, big and bright?
Hidden away in the speaker, bright, not huge, not tested RGB yet (needs root).
I'm assuming the usual HTC level of awesomeness?
£519 sim-free.....ouch, how can anyone possibly spend 500 quid for this when a 16gn Nexus 4 is just £279? What makes the £240 difference worth it?
The N4 is artificially underpriced - that's all there is to it. But... nicer construction, better camera, newer / faster CPU, 32GB / 64GB on board, 1080P great screen... you pays your money...
