5 reasons I really like the Duo Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One for Windows

5 reasons I really like the Duo Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One for Windows

The HTC One M8, previously loaded with Android and now with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, is considered the flagship Windows Phone device for the fall. Although it is currently only available on Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are both on target to get the phone, likely in the coming weeks. Although no international plans have been announced, I have to believe that the One will go global as well. As a result, many of you may want to consider this phone as your next.

Before I jump into a full review, I want to touch upon what is likely the most controversial aspect of the HTC One: its Duo Ultrapixel camera. Lumia users are used to owning the imaging market when it comes to Windows Phone, and as a result, I have seen a reflexive negative reaction to the HTC One's camera, often without evidence.

Is the HTC One for Windows better than a Lumia 930 or a Lumia 1520? In many ways, it is an unfair question as it depends on what aspects of photography you are considering. The Lumia 1520/Lumia 930 have excellent cameras, but there are cons to it as well, likewise with the HTC One. Here is my experience so far and why I like using the Duo Camera on the HTC One.

Costco gets ready to sell Surface Pro 3 Core i5 bundle in its stores and online

Everyone has their favorite brick and mortar stores for buying things, and for some, it is mass-seller Costco and its chain stores. Even though Microsoft is out of the Core i5 Surface Pro 3 with 128 GB of storage, Costco is ready to sell them next week.

Heading to the Costco site, and you can find the Core i5 version up for preorder at $1,149.99. If that sounds more expensive compared to the $999 Microsoft Store version, it is only because Costco is selling the Surface as a bundle, complete with a black Type Cover and one-year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal. With the 365 inclusion, you also get an extra 1 TB of OneDrive storage and 60-minutes of free Skype calls per month.
