Although, it is not conclusive that the improvement in the camera and video output is from the camera or not, but it is noted that the video quality improved following the upgrade and the pictures taking after the upgrade are of better quality compare to the previous ones.

CM 12.1, android 5.1.1 for the HTC One XL, just like the same ROM for Samsung Galaxy S4, i9500 comes with AudoFX, an application for sound management.
This among other things help the HTC One XL produce a better sound quality.
