HTC One update enhances camera-related features

HTC One update enhances camera-related featuresThe HTC One has had its fair share of negative press over the past couple of months, with stories of delays and that thing with the exclusive Nokia mic, but here’s some good news for a change.

The first HTC One update is on its way to European users, taking them to version 1.29.401.13 and addressing loads of camera-related features in the process.

According to SlashGear, the HTC One update will roll out “over the next week”, and you can of course check manually by tapping Settings > About > Software updates > Check now, or words to that effect.

Here’s the full HTC One update changelog, courtesy of the Slashers:

  • Improvement to sound capture with Zoe
  • Noise reduction in slow motion movie capture
  • Improved color reproduction and dynamic range (reduced over-exposure in non-HDR images) in certain conditions
  • Fix to display correct ISO in EXIF information when ISO settings are manually changed by the user
  • Improved system performance and stability

HTC Zoe being the feature whereby the HTC One captures pictures in three-second 20-frame bursts, allowing you to select the best shots and/or merge them or whatever. Nice.

The HTC One was pretty much unanimously praised for its sexy metallic design, but it remains to be seen how much trouble it’ll cause for Android darlings Samsung and their Galaxy S4.

Used one earlier. Well, for 5 minutes or so.
Lovely design, and an awesome sound from the built in speakers. And it takes excellent photos of the rack it's screwed to in CPW :p

Nah, if I felt like I could live with Android or that hefty size, I would have taken one home.

Awesome sound... Oh, I mentioned that? :D I actually turned around when a song started to play to see if there's a ghettoblaster on my shoulders...
Very impressive.

Sorely tempted to sign off on one of these, from my current iphone 4. Can't quite make the jump to paying £36 PCM again after paying £13 sim only for a little while now...

Have one of these and love it - most complete phone I have owned to date - everything works as it should and is designed to be useful rather than gimmicky - will be a tough one to better - my experience so far is that it is the best android handset to date (just wish they has made the battery removable!)

I was of the same opinion with my Nexus 4.
I do covet ONE though.
