    When I was testing the cameras of the HTC One M8 and the Moto X (which I currently own and looks great), the M8 seemed to look better, and now that I'm considering swapping to the M8 (for various other reasons), I'm reading camera articles that are putting me off to it.

    For instance:

    HTC One M8: UltraPixel Camera Image Quality

    I don't mind a lower resolution (less data size), but these weird aberrations in exposure and purple fringing and erratic processing... I just don't think they'll look good anywhere but on the phone.

    Uh, I thought I was posting a new thread; I don't know how this got attached to another thread.

    Has anyone who is rooted or developing thought about activating that second camera as a regular camera? Is it possible?

    From what I've read, it was considered and decided impossible.

    There is a raw camera mod that's pretty cool, check the root forum for the thread.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the 2nd camera, but I have a Moto X Developer Edition (haven't opened it yet), and since I can't have the double-shake open anything but the default camera (which does not let me lower resolution), I was thinking of cracking the code to allow that.

    If I build that, I'll let you know.

    I have yet to be disappointed with the camera on the M8. Bottom line, if you aren't making large prints with the photos you take this is an amazing camera. If you are looking at printing out anything beyond 8x10 you should look for a phone with a better camera, or a dedicated camera.

    You will find hundreds of shots in this thread with some amazing quality (especially some of the close-ups).

    It really comes down to what you are going to use the photos for.

    HTC M8 is a disappointment after the original HTC One. I have used both phones in fact using M8 currently. I feel there is an "iPhone-like" monotony going on in here.

    And the camera compared to the M7 is disappointing you how exactly?

    Sorry, I didnt realize we were only talking abt cameras. I dont know abt on-paper specs but the camera is the same of both devices. However front facing camera of M8 feels like HD unlike M7, but I rarely use it. :)

    So yeah, camera-wise I'd say M8 is slightly better.

    Picture taken of the plane I was about to jump out of the other day. Taken in burst mode on auto, focus fixed and exposure down to - 1.5 :)

    Wasn't easy to take as it was brighter than the picture is showing so was getting a lot go washed out clouds plus a moving plane, made it a little bit of work :thumb:

    Another picture. Accidentally taken with the flash on but quite like the blueish hue that it's captured


    From a different angle but without the flash this time. Both in Auto mode.

    Only posting this to show off the phones manual mode ability at night tbh. Here's a picture of my sprog taken in auto mode

    And here he is again taken with the iso set at 800 and the exposure time set at 4 seconds


    This is the sole reason I will not go anywhere near AOSP! Also helps that Sense is pretty good :thumb:
