Even HTC fell for the "leak" of a 16MP camera...

Default Even HTC fell for the "leak" of a 16MP camera...

I just took this screenshot off of the order page for the Verizon M8 on HTC's website. Found it pretty funny considering the "leak" hinting to it from TENAA.

I picked up the phone this morning, and the camera is one of my few complaints. Perfectly usable if you're not cropping or zooming, but falls apart quickly due to resolution. I love the super fast focus and shoot though...so I'll just be adjusting my photo taking technique I guess. Really wish they had given at least an 8mp sensor with larger pixels to preserve resolution when zooming in, but oh well.

Also, I just went through and it appears that this typo is only on the Verizon variant's checkout page. Since I'm stuck with Big Red for now, I'd have loved for this to be an "exclusive".

I believe the Asian variant has a 16MP camera but even that could have been speculation/rumors too.

I preordered the Asian variant, I'll post in this thread when it arrives. It does have a faster tuned 801 and applicable LTE bands to fit every country in the region, but unknown on the camera front.

I'll post here when i get it.

Can you post a link to where you purchased it from? Thanks.

The issue wasn't HTC here. Best Buy actually hosted and handled the online ordering for the carrier versions. That's why there's a misprint. Best Buy as usual not being as accurate on their specs as they should be.

Resolution of a 4 mp image is 2240x1680. People overblow this issue like crazy. My 600$ canon only has a 10.

I agree. If HTC never mentioned how many MP/UP it has on the one, nobody would realize. Major placebo for quality? It takes awesome low light pictures

Can't argue with this. There's really no need for 16 megapixels on a phone. Unless you want to print poster sized photo prints. 4 megapixels is more than enough for a quality 8X10 print. If the photo isn't clear or has a lot of noise when viewing it on your computer, it's more likely due to the quality of the lens. I've also got a Cannon 10 megapixel DSLR. Cheap lenses versus quality lenses on it can make a huge difference.
