Yesterday we updated our HTC One with the very latest patches and tried some low-light shots. We compared it against the 13-megapixel shooter on the Sony Xperia T. Both phones had HDR mode turned on during the test. HDR images capture a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas. Trouble is, I found that the HTC One kept turning off the HDR mode and HDR shots perhaps didn’t come out quite as well as the Xperia T.
This, I’ll confess, bothered me. Why was the HTC One turning the camera setting back to “Normal”? Why did the Xperia T keep the setting?
Either way, I decided to switch the setting back to “Normal” on both cameras and tried some direct comparison shots, this time in various conditions. I’ve taken a few more low-light shots, but I have to confess that the HTC One camera did much better this time.
