HTC One M9 Camera Update Delivers Massive Photo Quality Improvement

By Gerald Lynch on at

HTC's jump from an Ultrapixel sensor to a higher-resolution standard rear camera for the HTC One M9 had some mixed results, with as many cons as there were pros in the evolution from the One M8's snapper. However, a new camera upgrade for HTC's flagship, the 88.6MB 1.32.531.33 update, makes a massive difference to the quality of images the phone can take.

HTC hasn't detailed exactly what changes it has made, but (as you can see from the before-and-after shots below) the differences are clear -- the upgraded camera seems capable of firing off sharper images that are more richly coloured, with more effective light metering and distinguished contrast levels.
