Angrymagpie: Given the dearth of reporting on it, I am guessing that there won't be any improvement with battery life? (or actually a step backward, with the more powerful chips)
angrymagpie, get a sony and u will regret. remember all the lags in android after 2 weeks of usage? thats still there regardless of what new phones comes out on the android system
Edward Tsui: Camera size is more important than pixels in terms of photo quality. What is the camera sensor size of iPhone 6S as compared to LG G4 and Samsung's top models?
edward, u need to find a big hole and hide.
vFunct: These iPhones are amazing. They always have the best cameras of all smartphones. I look forward to each generation, as they pretty much wipe out all competitors.
Why is it that all other smartphone vendors are so crappy compared to iPhones? How is it that they're so untalented and unskilled? Like, it took them 3 years to catch up to 64-bit ARM processors that Apple has. They're so much faster than anything out there so far, and they're so power efficient.
You can always tell if a smartphone is crappy if they offer 4k video, but it kills battery life. Only Apple knows how to offer 4k video without destroying battery life.
Honestly, all these other smartphones should just be banned because they're so awful. There is only iPhones, with everything else being crap. You might as well fire anybody that suggest using a non-iPhone for work purposes, because you can tell they're idiots.
iphone at 8mp still beats whatever out there in every android phone even now. maybe the flaw is in android itself, a system that uses java codes that bloats up usage and memory consumption and an open system that ends up servicing way too many buggy apps. So triggering android camera often sucks, lags etc, they do worked beautifully on factory reset, which is pointless.
vFunct: And why is it always Apple that has to lead the industry in innovation? Why can't other vendors do things like 3D touch, Retina displays, Touch IDs, etc.. All of these were invented by Apple first. How is it that other smartphone vendors are so untalented that they couldn't come up with a single original idea first?
It's honestly shameful how bad these other smartphone vendors are.
halc,its not that iphone created the "hardware" innovation, its the iphone make it viable and beautiful in usage and practicality. These features that iphone added, changed the industry, that is at least 100% true and can be seen copied by the "next" android every time and been proven historically.
Just because u have high DPI or touch screen means sqat. these are all failures in industry for mobiles before apple decided to use it correctlly.
magneto shot: Steve jobs once said " we believe Integrated will triumph Fragmented every time." . This has hold true . In every android phone i tried, they totally crapped out in performance, camera and whats not. China companies like Oppo couldnt run a decent android after 2 weeks of use. Sony is always half baked. I am ordering the pink iphone 6s. Glad to be back.
here is how we know ur lying : No lag, no fuss, no problem or bug whatsoever.
every phone has bugs, lags in certain condition and bug. that is why u have updates. but iphone is just way ahead in user experience in terms of the lesser frequency for these bugs in android. i am currently on android oppo r5, i have the m4 aqua and yes i do talk only on phones i owned. i have owned at least 6 android phones and all fall short vs the iphone 5s i had 2 years back.
sony is one of the best producer of mobile camera sensors. unfortunately its also de only mobile producer that often shoot itself on the foot. with each product sony release :1. there an achilles heel built in
take the m4 aqua for example, only a dept of idiots would release a phone which have so little free space left from OEMs countries and doesn't even work with waze. (no solution)
sony xperia tablet Z - worst native holder sony xperia Z - beta rgbw camera with worse results than 3 years old phonesony xperia Z - waterproof but flaps that breaks in 2 weeks sony dslrs - custom hotshoe sony A7r - shutter vibration issues (no solution)sony A7(ii/r/s) - compressed raw files lossy (no solution)sony A99 - quickly forgotten and replaced with E-mount camerasSony E-mount FF (a7/a7r) - low quality mount
i have hence blacklisted sony from all my purchases.

magneto shot: Sony have the tendency to shoot itself on the foot always. when you see any products coming from sony, u can be as sure as the constellations stars in the skies that it will have one stupid flaw. One so significant that it blows your mind to think how Sony could have missed it.
just imagine this. You have a gf, she is a plain jane with say lack of appreciation for charity, fine, not exactly a flaw. Now picture this, you got a supermodel gf that has everything and IQ of 200, but guess what, she wanted to move in a lion as a pet. Now there is no reason to talk about plain jane, but a big reason to highlight the issue on the supermodel.Both are wife material in some ways and you can be happy marrying either, but one is just regrettably...silly.
magneto shot: lets see, original Holga is ...Medium format folks, medium format. That means the sensor(film) is bigger than your FullFrame Sony A7rII .
The digital holga : an 8MP 1/3.2" CMOS sensor
Ouch. thats probably 16x smaller.
it did advertise on using your "holga lens" via adapter, that is grossly misleading given the puny puny sensor size. creative tool? it has a sensor the size of last 2 years phone.
magneto shot: man, come on, i just switched to film.give me a FF equivalent bokeh for 2.8 and i am happy
without bokeh, i rather stick to instagram or vsco.
other manufacturers didnt release anything significant enuf, hence their flaws looks like common flaws .
SeeRoy: "Never give a sucker an even break"W.C. Fields
lubitel 2 is a medium format camera. there is no similarity with this holga at all. this has more similarity with ur phone than a lubitel.
Sitting Duck Photos: The first 1000 offered as early special sold out yesterday. I doubt that many here got one! I look forward to seeing what it can do. Just need to get a wifi memory card now. Did you order one?
it will do what ur phone do, minus the filters.

RichRMA: A smart product. Offers a quick, likely inexpensive (unless you are so strapped for cash $0.50-$1.00 each will brake you, in which case stick to your phone) and fulfills a need not met by phones or other digitals. This will also be good to the people who the takers want to show images. They won't be taking hundreds so you won't be subjected to them frantically searching their phone for 20 minutes looking through hundreds of shots to find the one they want to show you.
@nerd2 pretty sure u dont carry ur portable photo printer around and in ur jacket do u...
man, come on, i just switched to film.give me a FF equivalent bokeh for 2.8 and i am happy

Sdaniella: the best imaging sensors require the least "newer-work-around-tech" to stay ahead:
process incoming sensor light data both faster, coolernot just faster and hotter (adc on-sensor = hotter) are deeper BSI sensor adc circuits heat traps? no heat sink can resolve BSI circuitry heat; but a shallower sensor circuit layer can utilize a heat sink better, and even forgo with IBIS altogether, because BSI is non-optimal in design.nor just smaller and cooler (e.g. 43d generate 1/4 the heat from 1/4 the area of FF)
ideally: faster, cooler, and quieter (no fans, no moving parts: like IBIS, shutter shock)note that mirror slap is a non-issue for dSLRs since most have mirror-up modes
good tech also means addressing all unwanted mechanical vibration as well as unwanted processor heat as best as possible, as part of design process, and not rushing designs neglecting those unwanted intrusions by other mfrs, or workaround tech like IBIS to bypass internal camera vibrations (not just user jitters)
i am glad i use film.
blah blah blah. i am trying hard getting my jpegs to reach 1 TB after 4 years while my house repository of raws are in various buffalos and Wds.
66GTO: This would then make me ask, what is better than Flickr? PBase seems to have been left by the wayside. What is the better solution?
pbase is a joke, almost a landmark of the bygone ages when internet started or college projects..
