The HTC U Ultra has some great cameras, and using them for video has been great.
The rear camera is 12mp, and the front is a 16mp camera with UltraPixel technology. I used both camera at night, and in daylight…and they shine. The Front camera takes great selfies with the Ultra Pixel Tech turned on, but without it you can see the difference. It’s not bad, but I’d suggest leaving the Ultra Pixel turned on. The rear camera does with 4k footage, as you will see in the video. (Please note that when shooting video in 4k, the limit is 6 minutes.).
Overall, while there is nothing that jumps out at me right now that makes this rear camera stand out too far from the crowd, the FRONT camera is surely one that I think need take note of. Check out a couple of samples next to the Samsung Galaxy S7, side by side. Video at the break.
I put together a video below, showing the settings and some samples. Leave a comment and share your thoughts.
