HTC One Photo Samples: High Quality, or Just Another Phone Camera?
HTC is making a big deal about the Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One and HTC Zoe, and now we get a chance to look at some of the first HTC One photo samples and HTC Zoe Shares.
The HTC One features a Ultrapixel camera which HTC claims offers 300% more light than competing 8MP smartphone cameras for dramatically better low light photos. HTC shared several comparisons, but now we are finally able to see real world Photo Samples to see what the HTC One Ultrapixel camera is capable of.
These new HTC One photo samples and videos come from the HTC Zoe application which HTC launched as part of HTC Sense 5.0 on the One. HTC Zoe takes up to 20 photos and a video which are merged into a living photo album. Users can share the albums to Twitter and other social networks where the Zoe is presented as a video montage and then as a collage of photos and videos. The results are nice to look at and offer creative users a chance to add filters and styles to video and photos.
