The HTC One was among the phones receiving the highest score here on Pocketnow with the occasion of our reviews, alongside the Samsung Galaxy S 4. The Taiwanese company did a great job in pushing out updates (for improving the camera, for bumping Android’s version numbers to 4.2.2), but a 4.3 update is on its way. Blue and Red variants we’ve met in Berlin already had it installed.
The Ultrapixel camera on the One should, on paper, deliver great low-light performance, but, it is often not the case, especially on some units which are displaying a purple haze issue under certain conditions. HTC is aware of that and is committed to fixing the issue via a software refresh. Whether this will be a separate update or part of the Android 4.3-bump around the corner is yet unknown.
