HTC 10's Cam­era On Par with Sam­sung's Galaxy S7 edge, Ac­cord­ing to DxOMark

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT - HOT SHOTS -

De­spite its an­nounce­ment from last month, cam­era en­thu­si­asts site DxOMark has stated that the cam­era sen­sor of HTC's new flag­ship, the HTC 10, is on par with that of Sam­sung's own Galaxy S7 edge.

DxOMark de­scribed the HTC 10 as be­ing a “good all-rounder for stills and videos,” with its Ul­traPixel 2 cam­era be­ing able to process and ex­hibit rel­a­tively sharp de­tails in all con­di­tions with good ex­po­sure. The site went on to say that the phone's aut­o­fo­cus and tex­ture preser­va­tion is some­thing that it ex­cels in, mak­ing it a great choice for shoot­ing mov­ing sub­jects, or for cap­tur­ing de­tailed land­scape and ar­chi­tec­tural shots.

In­doors, the HTC 10's cam­era is also per­formed well, where light is lim­ited and low-light pho­tog­ra­phy be­comes the main is­sue of the cam­era sen­sor. DxOMark re­ported that un­der ex­treme dim con­di­tions, the HTC 10 was able to strike a bal­ance between noise re­duc­tion and sharp­ness, and also en­sured all tex­tures taken in darker sur­round­ings only had a fine lu­mi­nance of grain vis­i­ble.

At the time of writ­ing, HTC had yet to an­nounce an of­fi­cial launch date, but rest as­sured we will be bring­ing you an in-depth re­view of the phone the minute HTC pro­vides us with a re­view unit.

Huawei Re­ports 2015 Rev­enue

Huawei re­cently an­nounced its fi­nan­cial re­sults for 2015 for all three of its busi­ness groups: Car­rier, En­ter­prise, and Con­sumer. In to­tal, the three busi­ness groups gen­er­ated a to­tal of US$60.8 bil­lion (ap­prox. RM236.44 bil­lion) in an­nual rev­enue world­wide, an in­crease of 37 per­cent year-on-year. “In part, Huawei owes its long-term growth to the sheer size of the ICT mar­ket, which is the driv­ing force of dig­i­tal economies around the world,” Guo Ping, Huawei's Deputy Chair­man and Ro­tat­ing CEO said.

Google Scans Six Bil­lion Apps Daily for Se­cu­rity Threats

Google's lat­est an­nual re­port showed that in 2015, it had scanned over six bil­lion in­stalled apps daily, in or­der to pro­tect An­droid users from mal­ware and other Po­ten­tially Harm­ful Apps, or PHAs. Google also claimed that it is less likely for PHAs to slip into Google Play, and re­ported that PHAs have fall over 40 per­cent in 2015, com­pared to 2014. De­spite the claims, re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Cam­bridge re­vealed that over 87 per­cent of An­droid de­vices are still in­se­cure due to lack of se­cu­rity up­dates.
