I'm surprised they didn't step up to 4K video. I would think the hardware is capable of handling that resolution.

I always heard Apple phones had nice cameras. These pictures are pretty bad. I'm a bit surprised with all the talk about iphone cameras.

M1963: Great. Stupid vertical videos in 4K is all the world needs.

Yes, Why is it that apple users film in vertical mode?

I look forward to this being in the next Android Camera App... Google you have the technology, now use it.

I gave it a try with a high quality HD video. It really softened the final video. I will play with it some more.

Seems a little costly for an LED light.

I remember now it was called Photosynth.

I remember some similar software from Microsoft many many years ago. I can't remember the name but do remember it being well ahead of it's time.

MikeFairbanks: I'm thinking of switching from Apple (5s) to something like this. My workplace is built entirely around Chrome and Android, so that kind of helps push me in the Google direction.

Unfortunately, I have slightly over a year left on my cell contract. I have no idea how that translates to cost when wanting to switch. I don't want to leave Verizon.

The nice thing about Google is you can get Google apps for your apple phone, but not the other way around.

So in the meantime you could use Google services on your 5s. And when you switch to Android everything will be there on your Google account.

Sirandar: No matter how good it is, it is obsolete with no micro SD card.

Too bad ... I was interested. If the 64GB one was a reasonable price I might consider it, but you can usually never find those and if 649$ is starting price, the 64GB will be 849$.

My crappy Galaxy S3 with 100GB is still a better phone for me because it is more than quick enough, does everything well enough and I can store all my files, music and pics on it and never sync again unless there is something new I want to put on. And you can get an S3 now almost for free.

I used to think that about the SD card. I had one in my Razr HD Maxx. Never really used it. My current Moto X 32GB doesn't have a SD card slot. I still have half my space available and I have a ridiculous number of apps. Also, all the photos and videos are still on the phone and also backed up to G+ after I take them. If I really needed more storage I could use the OTG cable.

Rod McD: I hate carrying a laptop, even a light one, on extended travels but until someone offers a tablet with real USB capabilities, I guess I'm stuck with it. And no SD slot?

Android does offer real USB capabilities... It's called OTG.

dr8: 16 & 32Gb & no expansion port says, "we have no idea what is going on in the real world - but it's more like 'iStuff' now, and that's all that matters!" .... at least they got the speakers on the FRONT & in proper ORIENTATION to watch video content with real stereo audio!

There is a USB port. You can hook storage devices up to that.
