    I second this, we need a "nothing" option

    Maybe my eyes aren't as well trained as yours but all those pics look fantastic, I wouldn't have noticed anything until you pointed them out like the white T-shirt and cathedral lol

    Color accuracy for sure, I think Professionals will be more likely to buy/use it if so.

    Great post! Thank you for taking your time to analyze the pictures.

    From now on this thread will be know as the "thread of the day, the day before launch" ;)

    Excellent thread! You clearly know way more about photography than most of us, so this was a very interesting read.

    I am not a photo expert but a daily user and the photos looks great for me. However, I do really appreciate the efforts of ozi2007 to provide a detailed description and at the same time in my personal view suggestions to improve the quality of the product...

    Thank you

    Well, I love slightly over saturated colors, so I hope the 1+1 camera is that way or better yet there are a few different color settings so those of us who like over saturated colors can have it and those who like perfectly natural can have that.

    I voted for color accuracy because technically it does seem over saturated, but personally I like this. That's what should be tweaked for accurate photos, but personally I'd prefer things like the noise to be reduced even though it's already good.

    I don't mind the oversaturation; I've been using sAMOLED phones for a while so I'm kind of used to it ;)

    Its apparently ultra-low-light performance impressed me enough already, and the depth of field is pretty neat. Looking to next see some action shots and how they turn out.

    Depth of field on this phone behaves a lot like a DSLR i find. Its much more effective than software tricks like google and htc play considering that the One is hardware based.

    There are improvements, but really, there is no phone with a good camera, even my compact coolpix p2 from 2006 is way better than any phone camera now or in the next three years.
