    Default Reddit thread states the M8 has always on listening like the Moto X.

    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on here so I thought I'd share this. It's in the first couple comments.

    My initial HTC One M8 Impressions : Android

    If this is true I'm much more interested in this phone now. What do you guys think? Believable?

    Reddit isn't the most credible source. Lots of users doing it only for the karma, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
    My thoughts? It's not true

    "EDIT 1: Our rep didn't provide us with any internal specs, other than that the main camera is still a 4 ultra pixel. The phone didn't have any slowdown and felt fast while I was using it"
    Boo.

    Dang. That will be a deal killer for me. No excuse for the same measly 4 "ultra" pixels. Not acceptable in my book. If true, would suck, as this is shaping up to be a killer phone.

    I don't think we've seen any leaks discussing the spec's of the camera(s). A post this morning on the blog sheds a little light as to how the camera(s) will function: Aussie leak seems to explain HTC One's new 'Duo Camera,' outs Sense 6.0 | Android Central

    Nothing official, and I hope its not the case. Just seen a couple mentions now that the camera will remain at 4 ultra pixels. Not acceptable IMO. Hope that rumor is false.

    I'm fine w/ 4MP. It's a smaller file. But they really, REALLY, REALLY need to fix the over-processing the software was doing. That and the heat shield issue are my only two gripes. I know it isn't 13MP, but if they can clean up the 4MPs they have it could be great.

    I don't need 13, but at least give me 8.

    I'll take a good 4MP photo over a poor 8MP photo any day.

    The competition usually has great 8MP cameras. iPhone 5S, Nexus 5, GS3 all have great cameras. Probably better than the One in most situations
    Hopefully they improve the sensor noticeably this time around

    I hope this person isn't confusing Google Now's "listening" feature with Motorola's Touchless Control.

    The way the Reddit post explains it, it sounds exactly like Motorola's Touchless Control. It was asked several times if the poster meant the screen was off and he said yes.

    Higher MP count doesn't automatically make for a better photo.

    Which flagship cameras out there take "bad" photos? The One camera is average, 4 MP this generation is almost laughable

    The Moto X takes decent pictures at best, and that has 10MP. The One didn't take the best pictures, but they were pretty good.

    Are you saying the HTC One takes "bad" photos?

    On average, it doesn't. It's quite good, in fact. Not the best. But they're good. It doesn't matter if they're only 4MP - unless you judge on specs alone.

    You said that you would rather have a good 4 MP than a bad 8 MP. What higher megapixel shooter that is a "flagship" phone takes "bad" pictures for comparison? In a vacuum your statement sounds great. Until you realize that the competition takes better photos outside of possibly the Moto X, and were are talking last generation!

    I did not say the One takes "bad" photos. I think the camera is however average, and if the quality and MP count is the same on this generation as the previous it borders on embarrassing. That to me will be a shame because otherwise it seems like a dynamite choice.

    Also the "specs" do matter when you try to look at the photos on something other than a phone screen. Even a picture that looks great on the phone looks poor and pixelated/fuzzy when viewed on a larger screen. It's quite disappointing.

    Hope I'm wrong about the camera.

    My photos look great on screen too, so no problem there.
    Yes, there can be better cameras, but for most people's use the One camera was just fine.
    The problem was the purple tint, nothing more.

    Nothing more? Try cropping a photo. There is no reason this should not have a minimum of 8 MP this time around.

    To each his own. It will keep me from purchase possibly. For others? No big deal. There are always compromises.

    So what if the quality is better but the MP count stays the same? Embarrassing? lol.

    I don't crop my phone camera pictures, I tend to take care of what I shoot and the quality gets worse always no matter the MP count.
    The only phone that I could crop with was the Nokia Pureview 808. It doesn't matter if it's 4 or 8MP, these phone cameras lose much of their quality.
    It's like zooming, I never zoom with any phone camera. Digital zoom is worthless. When I use my DSLR I tend to crop some images, but then again we are talking about 20+ MP and different lenses and sensors.

    The One's camera was not the best one around, but it was more than decent for regular use. I've had it as my main camera this summer and the results were extremely good.
    Yes it would be nice if it was 8MP or even 20MP but then the sensor would be huge.
    Of course I'd like it to be improved. Let's see if the 2nd camera improves the overall image quality. Being satisfied with the first One, doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see some improvement.
    Having a "selfie" mode is not an improvement for me for example. But let's see the duo thing in action.

    Seriously 4 MP, oops sorry "ultra pixels" is not acceptable for me. If it's good for you, good for you. I find it sad on a flagship phone to rival an iPhone.

    You're probably one of those who will tell me I should carry a dedicated camera, lol.
