Daniel L: Had the last HTC one, which died while charging after one year of use. I would not touch any electronic devices that carries HTC brand. That phone was nothing but trouble from software to hardware, I have never experienced so much disappointment in an electronic device before.
Just replaced the dead fish last week with Galaxy s5 because The big iPhone is no yet next available!
....and DON'T BUY INTO 4MP image resolution crap. It's stupid. Who cares about better image quality on cell phone if you can't zoom enlough? I want to be able to zoom in images, read prints i can't tell from naked eyes, or similar purposes where cell phones picture are good for. I don't plan to do studio works with them. 4MP camera is as good as crap.
@interceptorv12No, why stay away from Samcrap? You should avoid Androids junk at all cost!

Avoid Samcraop at all cause.
LyYawn is a lost cause, they did't have a market and still don't.
Ultrapixel is a dumb ass garbage piece of shxt junk. I will take 40 MP phone cam over this stupid fuk anytime. I freaking hate my Org HTC one!
Too bad It's two generation too late to change. Long dead HTC.
raimundo gaby: This is Gorgeous macro photography. I am perplexed to see the many negative comments. Macro photography is very difficult, and the post requires a lot of work. Get a life people!!!! it is ok if you don't appreciate art, but be gentle with your negativity.
@rainmundo. Yes, you are right on one count - Macro Photography is very difficult. I do macro as well, i know what it take to freeze action in normal setting - first light in the morning, zero wind condition at temperature 50-60. These guys cut corner. They use wires, adhesive to stage the action and are taken in studio, light controlled room, not to mention freezer trick. Staged art is one thing, torturing and kill your subject in the progress is crossing the line.
mansod: How does he get the little creatures to stay in position? Wires?
wires and worst case with this type of macro photography, they use adhensive to glue insects to stage the action. Shame on DPR to feature this post.
Good technology but no use for nowadays application at this resolution and still require software to pull the processed images. I am not sure i would entertain if it's selling at $150, let alone $1500.
Rick Knepper: It took a totalitarian country like China to do what every other country on the planet should have done, stood up for their citizens' consumer rights.
yeah right, If it were China produced products, the red army will put all crybabies in jail!
Yawn, made my first mistake switching from iphone to the last HTC one M7.... it looks good on paper but dumb in every ways.
This one looks just as dumb.
Don't get it. it's something really awesome about these pictures need posting? Good location, good opportunity and he wasted the moment with cell phones snap for publicity - that's what the topic should be.
David M Warwick: The saying 'keeping all your eggs in one basket' come to mind again! If this card becomes corrupted you lose hundred of images, I would rather use a number of smaller cards rather than this one!
8 years and more than 500k clicks later i have yet experienced this so call one egg in the basket problem. However, i missed too many shots and too many times i ran out of memory space or forgot my big card... I would get 10 of these instead of 100 of smaller cards any time at any prices.... if i can afford one.

Normal operation - Android is not as polish as iOS and transitions is jerking. It's like going back to Windows Vista after using mastering OSX. It's a sick feeling.
I want a bigger screen size phone and better Google Map integration with Google account, i think i got it from HTC One but the cons, in my case, far exceed the pros. I'm so going back to next iPhone (with bigger screen)
Here's my take having switched from iPhone4s to HTC one, i preordered mine and being using it since then...
HTC COO just step down and they are restructuring company quality control, that explained why my HTC one have three cracks from normal use. What a joke. Is this thing make out of "glass"? I never have to worry about iPhone screen scratch, let alone crack! I didn't even drop it!
This thing run hot, hot to touch just using Google Map on the car. Nothing more frustrating that having to reboot your phone while using Google Map on the drive. It hangs, and stuttering so bad, i have to reboot the damn phone. Crappy OS can't help even with fastest processor on earth.
HTC sync manager is a piece of junk ( On OSX), even the support told me to buy 3rd party software/app. That says, you have to pay if you are synching your data with your itunes.
If you like IPod music player. You are going to hate anything android have to offer, I have to pay an app to get something usable. Conti
Seriously, these images make news how? Hope he didn't waste all the time taking mobile-grade pictures during 4-year once event.
