Move discussion in progress
There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:HTC One (2013) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 16:14, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Removing information from infobox that is already on the article body.
The infobox should contain all the information in a structured way.
- Why are you so persistent on requiring us to disclaim in the infobox that the battery is non-removable? No other phone article does this. 14:55, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
There's going to be a Windows Phone version of this phone
There's going to be a Windows Phone version of the HTC One (M8) that will only be a Verizon exclusive but a eventual worldwide release. However, info about the WP version of the One (M8) can only be added after HTC's New York event on August 19 so that no admin, admin bot or sysop on Wikipedia can aggressively edit the info out. UPDATE: Info about the One (M8) for Windows can be added now as I have added almost all info already. Also don't create a separate page just for this phone as it is the same hardware as the Android version but with a different OS. Kyrios320 (talk) 00:53, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
- I'm sorry, but I think this requires a second article. It is a completely different device that will have differing reception, even though it is almost exactly the same. Even a re-versioned iPhone 5 with only a plastic shell and slightly bigger battery got its own article, much to my objections, because it is treated by the media and marketed by Apple as a distinct product. 16:45, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
The reason the iPhone 5C got a different page because it is a different, "budget" model with a different design based on the iPhone 5's hardware to warrant its own page. The HTC One (M8) for Windows however is the same hardware, design, has the same model number and has the same main name with the exception of the OS.
Even if you create a separate page just for this phone, all the info in that page will be put back into M8 for Android's page with the M8 for Windows page mercilessly deleted for no huge distinction between both models which means no notability. Kyrios320 (talk) 01:10, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Description of second camera
1. Following the link to OV2722 it turns out it is a traditional RGB-camera- not depth-of-field sensor. Quote: "OV2722 Color CMOS 2-megapixel (1932x1092) Image Sensor with OmniBSI™ Technology" http://www.ovt.com/products/sensor.php?id=119
2. The sample image included in the HTCDualLensSDK by HTC https://www.htcdev.com/devcenter/opensense-sdk/htc-dual-lens-api contains a sample photo file in jpeg format. It contains two images. You can use the netpnm tools to extract both:
jpegtopnm -multiple samples/DualLensDemo/res/raw/duallenssample.jpg > foo.ppm pnmsplit foo.ppm pnmtojpeg image0 > image0.jpg pnmtojpeg image1 > image1.jpg
The resulting images are RGB-images with 2688x1520 and 1280x720 pixels. The second image has a slightly larger field of view and has a slightly different viewpoint. No depth-of-field camera can fill pixels that the first camera has not seen. Therefore, there the second camera must have taken the RGB image. The depth field must be generated by the SDK each time the image is loaded.
3. The given references state that the camera is a traditional camera with lower resolution to compute the depth-of-field. Still, even the engadget article seems wrong, as the second image is really taken and can be extracted from the photos given above method.
Apart from this, the description of the main camera might need fact checking as well- the description of the image sensor and the HDR mode makes much more sense than the given techno-babble about magic "ultrapixels": http://www.ovt.com/products/sensor.php?id=130
