A Balancing Act
In reply to phazelag, Feb 21, 2014

You need enough pixels to be able to print reasonable size pictures, and to be able to crop, but not so much that you then end up with an unnecessarily huge file, and of lesser quality, that needs to be resampled down to yield acceptable looking quality. It's a balancing act that is dictated by sensor size, type and quality. The example of the HTC One bucking the trend by having 4MP is very reasonable considering the size of the sensor.
