    Havnt found a way to start new htc thread on tapatalk...really this should go there.

    Anyway....comparison shots of htc one 'ultra pixels' vs current all round smartphone camera king iphone 5...
    http://asia.cnet.com/htc-one-vs-iphone-5-camera-shootout-62220556.htm

    Calling iphone 5 the leader is controversial I know,...lumia 920 would stake a claim in low light and video..but alround daylight, low light and video I think it wins...ill try to find a comparison there of lumia 920 after the update also.

    What kind of expectations do people have of phone cameras?

    I will use it because it's always at hand and I can take nice geotagged pics or easy panoramas.

    But my main library consists of DSLR RAW files, not the iPhone pics.

    If you care enough about the picture quality of photos to follow these kind of shoot outs, you'd know the limitations of phones as capture devices.

    No I agree. ..however that's a bit like saying if you like to travel in comfort why do you bother to read reviews of family cars over a Mercedes?

    DSLRs also have serious limitations: you can't fit them in the pocket, you can't take them everywhere you go, they're bulky and they don't go unnoticed.

    I'd love to take all my pictures with the quality of a decent DSLR, but I'm in no position to spend >500€ in a device that isn't very practical to carry around.

    That said, smartphone cameras need to be pushed to higher standards. And the goal must be to get DSLR-quality, even if it sounds utopic.

    You can't overcome optics and physics. Best you could hope for is "good enough."

    For posting on FB, Instagram, etc., they're certainly good enough.

    Physics don't need to be overcomed, they need to be better understood.
    The fastest path to never achieve something in tech is to assume that it can't be done.

    Doesn't need to. It comes with its own pockets :)
