The HTC One is high-end smartphone with an excellent screen and stereo speakers that are a notch above the rest, making it an excellent choice for viewing images and watching video. The feature set of the camera app is very comprehensive but some of the functions cannot quite convince us fully yet. The camera performs well in low light and when using the flash which makes it a great mobile tool for social photography, but the 4MP sensor is not without its flaws and users who like to view images at a pixel level will not always be impressed.
