      You just need to get it replaced. Its a hardware fault

      You really have to go to the HTC centre and get the camera replaced..
      I have mine for about 6 months..
      And finally go to HTC centre and let them solve it for me..
      I love my One better now..
      Btw, it’s free of charge..
      As long as your device is not rooted..


        (February 8, 2014 - 11:23 am)

        How much time they take to replace the hardware. Do u get your phone on same date.

          Widi Kenanga

          (February 8, 2014 - 10:54 pm)

          it takes around 1 week for the working days..
          I don’t know bout your country..
          but i get mine fixed in Hong Kong..
          the HTC Centre there lend me another htc phone which ran Android as well till my phone is fixed..
          the phone they lent me that day was htc Velocity..
          which specs are still below One..
          but Good enough for the one week experience..


      (February 7, 2014 - 11:55 pm)

      i have the same issue with my phone
      i gave it in the service center they replace the camera Now it is super WOW


    (February 7, 2014 - 3:44 pm)

    Any idea what happened to the Dual Sim version? No updates here…


      (February 7, 2014 - 4:31 pm)

      Reportedly, Dual sim HTC One is expected to receive 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 update in March. It will skip 4.3 update


        (February 7, 2014 - 4:40 pm)

        I know but as per the HTC roadmap both single and dual SIM 4.4.2 were to be rolled out same time in all countries?
