Camera HDR Video

Can someone tell me what went through HTC's head when they made the camera for this phone, these are the issues i and everyone should have.

1: Still 4mp camera, not okay should have been upgraded.
2: To make it worse the lense is so prone to scratches they might as well have have covered the lense with clear tape.
3: HDR does not work properly
4: Video HDR is a just one big F*** up.
5: 4.4.3 update, cant see the picture im taking in manual mode anymore before you actually take the pic.

I hate to complain about this phone but HTC where high when they made part of this phone.
