Watch the HTC One M9 selfie camera destroy the iPhone 6 [VIDEO]


While HTC may have removed “UltraPixels” from the rear camera on the HTC One M9, they moved them to the front-facing camera. The One M9 has a 2″UltraPixel” front-facing camera that is supposed to perform much better in low-light for selfies. At least that’s what HTC claims. We put it up to the test against the iPhone 6 to see for ourselves.

One M9 / iPhone 6

It seems pretty obvious to us that the UltraPixels are destroying the iPhone 6. The photos from the One M9 look remarkably more clear and bright in the low-light conditions. Even in the bottom two photos, where the light isn’t so dim, the One M9 is outperforming the iPhone 6. If you’re looking to take selfies in all conditions this might be the phone for you.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

      1. Can’t we all just get along… Sniff Sniff… But yea I would punch Derek Ross in the face from that picture as well. But I like the guy, so I would try to with-strain myself.

  3. Why would you post that about Chris? Dudes as cool as the other side of the pillow. Some of y’all be showing your asses in the comments cause it’s anonymous. Smh

    1. Calm down dude. i didn’t say i would do it just said he has that face and makes me wanna punch him. also, i said he’s a great guy but it’s just something about his face.

      so you mean to tell me that there has been no one in your life that had a face or a voice that when you heard/saw it you just became infuriated?

      1. people need to chill out haha

        1. Shut up, you need to be punch

          1. He needs to be a liquid beverage? That’s a comeback i’ve never heard before. very interesting.

      2. No… There’s no one I’ve wanted to do that too man.. And if I did I wouldn’t be writing it at the bottom of their article.

        1. obviously you are the dude in your circle with no sense of humor or sense of sarcasm. I hope you die from neurodermatitis.

          1. Random Internet guy. Lol your opinion means absolutely nothing to me about humor.

            If everyone has different takes one human? Who are you to decide i have none? Lol

          2. Different takes on humor *

        2. dude if you couldn’t read my comment and find some humor in it then that’s you man. hell Chris even found it funny… Chris says he gets it all the time and again i said he’s probably a nice guy. i am not just like “Chris i’m gonna find and beat you up because of your face!” calm down with the internet policing man.

          1. No Internet policing. I wrote my opinion. Shit you wrote it in the open. You want people to take things the way you feel over the Internet then you going to need to hop off the Internet. Different opinions flying all day through comments

          2. And don’t think I didn’t peep you doing the equivalent to passing ya mixtape out talking about follow you on sound cloud lol

          3. I swear I didn’t know it would actually put my tracks in the comments section here. I just typed the link to say follow me but I’ll take this too lol.

      3. Shut yo ass up, you got comments that make me wanna box yo ass up

        1. Box me up? O_o ok then. Don’t let the name and the anime avatar fool you fam it won’t be that easy to put me in a box.

          1. Dude u sound like them lil B ‘s from my hood and every hood, I guess u had no real man in yo life to teach you a man stand behind his fist and feet, lil puss run for a gun. Man up,

          2. ummm you talked about boxing me up… YOU took it to the extreme.

            i just informed you that i am not gonna be put in a box without a fight.

            but anyways shout out to my fan DDroid45 who gets all upset over the comments i post.

          3. Actually I’m studying for my psychology class, I got more more important things to put my emotions towards. 2nd boxing meant boxing.. Fighting, but I guess people don’t fight nomo, that man card doesn’t exist nowadays

          4. But you said box up… Which where I’m from (Gary, Indiana) means you’d put me in a box (coffin). Got better things to put your emotions toward but you comment on what I’m doing. Lol yea ok then

          5. homeboy is studying for a psych test but is on here threatening people….sounds about right for a first class failure in life. Have fun smoking that crackpipe in your trailer homey. best watch who you think you are being an internet toughguy too. thats how people get decked

    2. and you can follow me on and read my bio. It’s not anonymous at all. :-)

  4. As someone who does video blogs, this is actually pretty neat. :D

  5. You guys are fried!

  6. It’s a 4 megapixel camera, not 2. It’s the same camera (without the duo camera) that the M8 had on the back. The ultrapixel technology more than compensates for the lack of a front-facing flash.
