Feature: HTC One Ultrapixels vs. iPhone 5

Now that we've gotten our hands on the HTC One, we've decided to give the camera a little test drive. The HTC One uses what HTC have dubbed an Ultrapixel camera which uses a larger-than-average sensor. The true megapixel count of the One, however, is 4. HTC hope to prove that a large megapixel count is more marketing than truth when it comes to quality images. The iPhone 5 camera sports an 8 megapixel camera. Is there actually a difference? The first image of each set will be the HTC One. HTC One iPhone 5 So right of the bat we can see a substantial difference. While the iPhone 5 image is darker, the HTC One image appears slightly over-exposed. Even though the iPhone 5 produced a darker image, it appears to be more natural than the HTC One version. HTC One iPhone 5 The difference is harder to tell when outside. Both phones appear to capture the image naturally. It's difficult to perceive, but the One has the slight edge here. HTC One iPhone 5 So again we see a clear difference here. In this case, the One captures the natural light much better than the iPhone 5 does. However, the iPhone 5 produces richer tones, with colors more saturated. Somewhere in-between would probably be best, but it looks like the One might have the slight edge here again. There is a difference between the cameras, with the One performing technically better in low-light conditions. That doesn't necessarily mean that it captures a more accurate picture, however, as it tends to overcompensate and the resulting image is a tad brighter than the reality. On the other hand, the iPhone 5 images tend to be on the dark side. It should also be noted that at only 4 megapixels, the HTC One images don't hold up as well when blown-up. The actual difference might just be subjective. Possibly too dark or too bright? Take your pick. We'll have more HTC One features in the coming days. In the meantime, you can pick up all your HTC Ones accessories right here.

Europe Getting HTC One Ultrapixel Update

Europe is set to receive an update for the HTC One that will bring several small improvements to the device. This serves as the first major update for the One. The update includes: • Improved Zoe sound capture • Noise reduction when filming slow-motion • Improved color reproduction and dynamic range • Fix to display correct ISO in EXIF information when ISO settings are changed manually • Overall improved system performance So there you have it. It's safe to say that this update will eventually makes it's way over to North America, but there is currently no time frame on that.. You'll all just have to be content with your slightly worse One's for the time being. Via: Slash Gear

Review: Incipio DualPro SHINE for the HTC One

For some people the only job a case has is to protect the device and anything above that is only a bonus. It can be difficult to find a case that fits both check-marks in terms of style and protection -- and let's face it, there are many ugly cases out there. The Incipio DualPro SHINE for the HTC One tries to turn the tables and offer something that combines both style and protection without sacrificing either one. It does this with an aluminum finish on the hard shell that's not going to be to everyone's liking. This is a dual-layer case, and you can see the silicone layer through the logo cut-out on the back. Incipio is very fond of having cut-outs in the outer layer for their logo. The silicone by itself is very soft and thin and doesn't provide much protection on its own. Fortunately it fits very easily into the plastic hard shell. Any case that fits together without a struggle is already something to take notice of. Now, even though the back has a shiny (and it is shiny and will catch the light,) aluminum coating, it is still poly-carbonate plastic. You don't have to worry about smudges so much as you do scratches, which will show brilliantly in the light. The DualPro Shine is a standard dual-layer case. In other words, you're not going to find the same levels of protection as you would in, say, an OtterBox. For most people, however, that's going to be just fine. The SHINE offers adequate shock protection and protects the entire body of the One except, of course, for the display. What we have then is a perfectly reliable dual-layer case with a back that's going to make or break it. The aluminum finish catches the light, but it's not going to blind anyone. Whether or not the design choice is right for you is entirely subjective. It should also be noted that even though the volume rocker is protected by the silicone, nothing else is. The Incipio DualPro SHINE for the HTC One does a fine job of combining style and protection. That is, if the aluminum finish isn't a complete turn-off. Scratches and dents will show more prominently on the back than they might on other cases, so take that into consideration. If any of that bothers you, it's time to look elsewhere. The SHINE is not the most durable dual-layer case out there, but it sure does look fine. You can pick up the DualPro SHINE by Incipio for the HTC One in the HTCedia Shop.

Nokia Wins HTC Court Case

Legal battles over patents and copyright happen very frequently, and no tech company seems to be safe from them. HTC was just given a legal smack-down in their case with Nokia over microphones in Amsterdam. Apparently the new HTC One uses microphone components that were invented by, and produced exclusively for, Nokia. HTC did not seek Nokia's permission before incorporating the parts into their flagship One. Oops. Until March of 2014, ST Micro (the company that has been selling HTC the parts) cannot sell them. This ruling is limited only the Netherlands, so it shouldn't have any affect on HTC's larger supply chain. Unlike the frequent cases we see of copyright trolls hopping from company to company trying to take each one down, it seems that HTC was caught red-handed in a serious case. They will now be forced to scramble for a new supplier. Via: CNET

Review: Speck CandyShell for the HTC One

Dual-layer cases typically include two separate pieces that are used together to create the extra levels of protection. The Speck CandyShell for the HTC One is different in that it's made from two layers molded together, something which is commonly referred to as a hybrid case. The CandyShell features two distinct fused layers. Hybrid cases are an interesting beast for the very reason that they typically fall somewhere between a single layer case and a true dual-layer offering. The exterior is your average hard shell with a glossy finish. The back will pick up fingerprints and dust, so if that's something you're averse to now is the time to back out. On each of the four corners you can see a small strip of the TPU material that covers the interior. What you basically have is a thin layer of TPU built on-top of a hard shell. The CandyShell is a hard case but it's not dual-layer hard. You'll find that it performs well in everyday environments and construction wise is all most people will actually need. TPU covers the volume rocker while the rest is hard shell. The major downside to the CandyShell, and most hybrid cases in general, is that it's difficult to get the One in and out. The CandyShell is the type of case that works well as long as you don't need to frequently remove your One, as getting it out is not a pretty picture. The TPU and hard shell form a tight grip on the One which some may see as a plus. It certainly won't pop out easily in the event of a drop. The Speck CandyShell for the HTC One is a solid hybrid case that simply has all the faults that hybrid cases tend to have. Average users will get their money's worth when it comes to protection, though the glossy finish will attract fingerprints. Getting the One out of it is a chore, but you'll be good to go as long as you plan on keeping it in there. You can pick up the CandyShell by Speck for the HTC One at the HTCpedia Shop. You can also pick up other HTC accessories right here.

New M4 Rumors Pin it as Mini One

The M4 rumors keep on evolving. When we last checked in with the M4 it was closer to a First clone without all the Facebook-ness tacked on. Now it looks like the M4 might be closer to the One in design and even feature an Ultrapixel camera. It would make sense for HTC to introduce a cheaper version of the One, and the M4 might just be it. Or it might not. As of right now, the M4 is rumored to have Sense 5.0 and Jelly Bean 4.2. Other rumors give it a 720p display, 1GB of ram and 16GB of memory. This version of the M4 could ship as early as June. At this point, who knows what the M4 will look like when we see it next?

HTC Offering Unlocked HTC One

For people who are looking a little bit of freedom, HTC now has the unlocked version of the 32GB HTC One. The 64GB version is still an AT&T exclusive, unless, of course, you feel like going for the Developer Edition. The One has reportedly been in adequate supply as there is no evidence to suggest that people are being put on waiting lists. If you'd like an unlocked One but don't necessarily want to deal with T-Mobile, now is as good a time as any. The unlocked 32GB will run you $574.99 and the 64GB Developer Edition will run you $649.99 Via: TechPP

The T-Mobile HTC One Will Cost You $579

T-Mobile has finally revealed how much the HTC One will be in total on their network, and it ain't pretty. Including the initial down-payment of $99, the One will run you $579.99 which will be paid over the course of 24 months. This is what you get instead of a two-year contract. It still may be worth it for those that really can't stand being tied to anything, but it would be surprising if T-Mobile didn't have the lowest sales overall. Interested parties will be able to pick up the T-Mobile version starting the 24th, while the Sprint and AT&T versions officially go on sale today. Source: T-Mobile

Now There is the HTC Desire L

HTC have unveiled the Desire L in Taiwan, a low-end device that won't be taking any eyes of the One. As HTC is attempting to focus their strategy outside of Asia, don't expect to see this one over here. While we pretty much have the One and the First to play with, Taiwan and China have seen a number of other releases in the low-end to mid-end range. The Desire L is equipped with a dual-core 1GHz processor and a 5MP camera. Saucy. Via: Engadget

Sense 5 Update This Summer?

While it's already been confirmed that other devices will receive some version of Sense 5 with Android 4.2, reliable twitter source @LLabTooFeR claims that late summer will be the earlier we see it. This is a sensible amount of time to wait to role out new software so it doesn't take any spotlight away from the HTC One. The Sense 5 update will bring new features, some seen on the HTC One, to older phones. What features will be coming have not been officially confirmed, but don't expect to be getting Sense TV.
