City streets

Outside even in weak winter sun, the HTC One was able to quickly snap moving people and objects.

The great outdoors

In sunlight, colors were bright but details were heavily processed.

More light but more noise.

In low light, color noise became a problem. While the HTC One's sensor lets in more light, it also ups the ISO.

HDR adds extra brightness

The HTC One's HDR mode uses a backside illuminated sensor to pump up brightness in shadows and adds detail under strong lighting.
