I'm only here for the comments after, in frustration, squinting at and stretching the image for a few minutes and then having to actually read the article in hopes of clues to find the EVA.

Halftrack: I like big phones with great cameras, and I have had and enjoyed Note-series cameras in the past, but I hate wraparound displays. Anything that's in the "wrap" area at the edges is distorted, meaning that if you're trying to view photos in fullscreen mode you can't really critically assess composition. And they're hard to take care of, since screen protectors never cover the curved area and cases will generally obscure it. I also don't like those sharp 90° corners, which look like they'd make the phone harder to slip into a pocket and easier to break from a minor drop that lands right on a corner.

It's a slick-looking camera and I'm sure that will help it sell, but in actual use these design features suck.

The curved edge display is the reason I left Samsung years ago, only to return when they offered the S10e flat screen. The regular Note 20 has a flat screen as well; however, Sammy seriously handicapped that phone for $1000, and didn't even give it a 120hz display.

Nicolaso: An impressive lens doesn't help when the sensor is even smaller than MFT.
Therefore low light photography won't make you happy.

Honestly I don't get it why they are not using at least MFT sensors 🤷🏻‍♂️

Agree!

What is truly 1inch (25mm) about a "1 inch" sensor??? Sounds like marketing nonsense. A 35mm sensor is 36mm x 24mm!!

Honest question. Someone please explain.

miggylicious: Hope this never pushes thru. There is seems to be a much deeper agenda here that being masked as "addictive". This will allow the government to start controlling social media... which in the long run they will bend to their use and favor. What makes social media powerful (and addictive) is that it is free and open.

@ArtGet Good lord. You smug leftist sheep have such enormous blindspots. But, what did I expect from an NPC.

@ArtGret Just responding to the conspiracy started in this thread. And if you don't think these leftist Social media companies are in bed with your beloved Democrats, you're doing this wrong.

Lol! I'll have my popcorn and be tuned to MSNBC and CNN to watch the freak show and 2nd meltdown from the lefties. Lol!

Democrats already own social media. Twitter, Facebook, and Google are wings of the Democratic party.

Steve in GA: Apple catches a lot of flak from app developers who don't like the extreme vetting process that apps must go through before they are allowed to market the apps for iPhones.

But, if Google had done similar vetting of its app developers, Android would be a much cleaner system.

Yeah, but the Chinese already have a spy chip in Apple's phones. Haha, sheep!!

Xavios: How about this: Ditch the cursed selfie-camera.
Or sell same phone with an without the front-facing camera, I'd automatically choose the phone with less gutter.

I understand the need for laggy facebook videocalls, falling from a cliff while poking passersbys with a selfie stick, and whatever else uses it have, it's just not my cup of tea at all, and would gladly pay less for not having such a feature in my phone.

Some use the front sensors for face unlocking

sirhawkeye64: While the iPhone bokeh is impressive, nothing beats the real thing from an actual lens (getting in camera versus using some processing technique). I mean its good for those in a pinch who are maybe walking down the street and all they have is their iPhone, but nothing beats the "real" bokeh that's not emulated. The iPhone emulated bokeh is less pronounced overall, especially in the second set of images. Plus everything (overall) seems more blurred with the iPhone 'f1.4'. But again, it's software at work versus actual optics.

I think you have a typo. You meant "unimpressive"

keeponkeepingon: Bravo to google for taking existiing post processing techniques, refining them, making them near-real time and bringing them to the masses.

I wish canon or nikon, instead of churning out minor modifications year after year would inovate like this. Can you imagine the technology with a bigger sensor???? Handheld shots of the milkyway????

Indeed, computational photography is the wave of the future. Get with it, it get left behind. However, CPU power and additional GPUs is the hurdle for traditional cameras. Costs would go up on those Nikon's/Canons.

I would like to see Google partner with a traditional camera manufacturer on a compact pixel camera.

DiffractionLtd: Ah, seems like only yesterday "climate change" was called, "global warming." That is until the "People's Directorate on Propaganda-Mythology Division" instructed their people and the compliant media to call it climate change...

Junk science is all about consensus and group think. Real science is about skepticism and questioning. Nothing is sacred in real science. This AGW nonsense is a fanatics religion and anathema to all who dare question it.

Kevin Barrett: These are ok for the intended use. I am wondering if you can throttle back the smart HDR? Some of it looks a bit heavy-handed in some of these examples.

Dang phone cost over$1000!!! They want that much money, I expect better than watercolor and mush at 50% magnification!

Mushy. Full of mush. But, then again, maybe I'm not looking at them right.

Gavin Wade: Another Chinese phone company copy and pasting the apple Iphone X design

Apple fans are a strange bunch in that they think they are the leaders, when in fact they usually lag in tech features.

GOVA: LOL at some people. Nobody serious buys it to do ISO800+

It is what it is, great AF and good IQ up to ISO800 or so. This is another disposable toy that nobody will talk about in 5 years.

Is it a great toy - yes it is very capable one. Another LOL at the "comparison" links. Few need to get a life apparently.

Glad you presume to speak for everyone when you say "no one". And thanks for the not so bright comment. This camera easily handles 1600 ISO. Ignorance is not a virtue.
