HTC are pushing the Ultrapixel camera on their 2013 flagship as the best thing to happen to cameras since the lens, but now that the phone is actually in the hands of the internet, many reviews are pointing out that a lot of the photos the One is producing are kind of blurry when zoomed in, thanks to overzealous noise filtering.
Thankfully, HTC are aware of the problem, and have put together an update (which should be available to the public in April, providing the One itself is available by then), that fixes the problem. Hardware Zone did a test, comparing the old camera software with the new, and the difference is pretty incredible – images are much sharper and detailed, as is evident from the shot of the kids below.
Apparently though, images taken at ISO800 still seem wonky, but this could be to do with an unfinished release of the software. The camera is definitely something that we’ll be putting to the test when we do our review of the One, but in the meantime, check out the photo below to see the difference.
