The entire purpose of introducing "UltraPixels" was to outperform traditional high megapixel cameras in low light. When you fail to accomplish that 2 years in a row against the same 2013 hardware no less (like the iPhone 5s, Galaxy S4, Note 3 and G2), yeah, I'd call that a mistake accomplished twice. I know phonearena.com's testing is subjective, but it seems to accord with what is generally found by the mainstream review sites.

This is not about "pixel-peepers" distracted by pixel counts, but HTC dishing out marketing baloney.

Camera Comparison: iPhone 5s vs LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, HTC One, Motorola Moto X, DROID Ultra - Indoor

Camera comparison: HTC One (M8) vs Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, iPhone 5s, LG G2, Nexus 5, Nokia Lumia 1520, Sony Xperia Z1S - Indoor

I wonder what this will look like when the M8 is tested against the S5 and other 2014 flagships yet to be released. It's not going to get prettier for HTC.
