In recent years reports of HTC with the imaging sector of their smartphone has somehow deteriorated. Moving to the formula “Ultrapixel” with One M7 did not produce the desired results, because of the amount too low to MP, and the Toshiba sensor mounted on One M9couldn’t convince through. Things seem to have gone through a major change of direction in recent times, with the launch of the new “hero product”, the midrange “super premium” One A9. We noticed a bit everyone, including DxOMark, which recently published its detailed analysis.
In the end, the score from the camera of the device was on 78 points, on par with the Nexus 6Google/Motorola. The characteristic emerged in particular are the good performance in any condition, without losses (or spikes, it is clear). A reliable behavior with no surprises, in short, that do not run the risk of disappointing expectations.
However, it remains a camera that can be ascribed to the midrange, nothing more. The current top of the line are at least 4 points away (except for One M9, with only 69 points), while the best ever, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Sony Xperia Z5, are posted by ben 9 points. A comparison difficult to avoid seeing the introductory price (but also the street price is not particularly inviting). We say that we can be optimistic for the next flagship; We hope he can return to the Summit.
