The HTC One M9’s camera performance has been under scrutiny for quite some time now. Thankfully, the Taiwanese company has released an update to rectify this issue. However, just how much of a difference does it make? A big one.
The folks over at Phandroid decided to compare the camera performance of the HTC One M9 before and after the new update. Although we could tell you if it made any difference, we’ll let the pictures do the talking instead. (Left images are before the update, while the right ones are after.)
Based on these images, there clearly is an improvement in the One M9’s camera performance. But at the same time, we wouldn’t say it made a huge difference. Nonetheless, it’s good to see HTC tackling this issue with its latest flagship smartphone instead of just letting the problem linger.
In terms of specification, the HTC One M9 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage that can be further expanded with a microSD card up to 128GB, Android 5.0 with HTC’s Sense 7 out of the box, and 20MP rear and 4-Ultrapixel front cameras.
The HTC One M9 was first released in Taiwan on the 16th of March 2015 at a retail price of 21,900 Taiwan dollar (approximately RM2,570) for the 32GB model. The 64GB variant, on the other hand, retails at 23,900 Taiwan dollar (about RM2,805). Unfortunately, the Malaysian launch of HTC’s latest flagship smartphone have not been revealed yet.
