Just became a proud owner of a new HTC One. Bought it for the camera, of course.
So yesterday I decide to do a first test of its performance expecting everything to be crystal clear in an interior shot.
The room was first lit with lights + daylight. Pic was OK. Was expecting it to be even sharper.
Then I turned off the lights so only daylight remained. Not exactly a night shot, it was full daytime, 2PM, though it's winter here. Any pic I took was completely blurred and unusable.
I was expecting this phone to knock my socks off, but instead I got performance on par with my Galaxy Nexus which I was replacing mainly for the camera. Not to mention my coleagues got to laugh at me because an iPhone 5 took waaaaaayyyyyyy better pics in the same lighting conditions.
With these results I won't even bother testring in true night conditions. I just know pics will suck.
So, did this phone ship to reviewers with different camera module than what I got?
Attached a sample pic with daylight lighting only.
