Galaxy S5 has more realistic colors

The M8 just adds too much brightness and overexpose to the camera, which makes the colors not as realistic but u can see dark places better

I prefer the S5

On the S5 we also have HDR video so if you are recording in a shadowed place, the HDR video mode will easily brighten up the scene.

The htc is just not exposing correctly outdoors. I would think this is something that they can correct in a software update if exposure is the case. But if it's a hardware issue with the ultra pixel sensor always pulling in more light than "standard" sensors, too bad :(

Not a shocker. HTC skimped on the camera and it shows. The apologists will keep making excuses, but it's a significant weakness.

It's no contest. The S5 has a 1/2.5" isocell sensor. Even though the M8 has larger pixels, it has a smaller 1/3" sensor. It also lacks the OIS that gave the M7 a leg up in low light. The M8 shares almost all the same weaknesses that the M7 had in outdoor conditions. The M8 camera doesn't even stack up against the S4, so it has no chance against the S5.

Sorry to sound so butthurt, but I was really leaning towards the M8 until I found out they took the biggest flaw in the M7 and did nothing to improve it. HTC was so focused on design that they completely ignored a basic and critical feature in a modern smartphone. I mean, if design is all that matters, why not use Android 2.3?

You have every right to be disappointed. This device is severely overrated and it's not just the camera.
