Take the Perfect Selfie with HTC’s One M9 UltraPixel Front Camera

In the last two years, HTC offered us something totally different – while competition come up with 8-megapixel, 13-, 16- and even 20- megapixel camera options, this company had in mind the wish of letting us to enjoy an 4-megapixel one known as an “UltraPixel” camera.

The idea behind it was practically a smaller resolution but normally sized sensor, resulting in larger pixel size, but you don’t really need us to tell you that it was far from any success. This year’s HTC One model – the M9 is equipped with a StandardPixel 20-megapixel camera (you can find more details on how to use the HTC One M9 camera), but the company didn’t completely abandoned the UtraPixel idea. In fact this one can be found in the front selfie camera, which has 4-megapixel 16:9 resolution and it is on the center of our attention today.

Let me tell you from the very beginning the fact that you can easily take high-quality selfies with this 4MP HTC UltraPixel front camera even in low-light conditions and if you don’t believe me, just apply these tricks and you’ll see that I am not at all wrong.
