Default Better camera quality

Can someone point me in the right direction. I have An HTC One, an iPhone 5 and the newest addition is my AT&T Galaxy Note 3. The problem I'm having is my HTC One takes the best pictures by far (day or night) I have read up on the GN3 and the camera, I've read that you have to set the camera at 13mp and to get better quality at night the stabilizer needs to be on. But still the pictures at best look 6 out of 10 maybe. Thank you.

The pictures I get of my kids with this device has better picture quality than any device I've owned so far. Even motion shots are unbelievably clear and crisp

If you don't mind me asking, what were your camera settings for that photo? Also how's your photos at night?

Yeah, maybe I have something set wrong. Is there any ideas you could give me?

The default resolution is set at 8mp. Open the camera and go to settings and select the 13mp option. You can also switch to 4k recording in the camcorder settings though for me it limits video to 5 min lengths.
