On article Google introduces Backup and Sync for Photos and Drive (47 comments in total)

Finally. Google Drive and Photos app in a computer is redundant. I wonder if they will do this for mobile devices.

PETA should sue everyone taking photos of their pets without permission.

it will need a miracle. they will have to beat GoPro's and DJI's efforts, combined.

Review please.

Mind blown. I just want to say that similar timelapse videos describes the upper limit for video quality, that is, to take RAW quality photos and turn them into a video. However that still limits the quality using a video codec with compression.
I also wonder the camera he is using here. He seems to be shooting at 60fps in some scenes.

I don't think it is truly a smartphone. Red is exploiting the fact that smartphone hardware is perfect for high-end consumer stills and video. This was done before, Samsung NX1.

super steel: 10 problems with the phone.

1-overpriced
2-clone ip7 design-which is ugly. if I want an android device, I dont want it to look like an ip7
3-FHD not QHD. 4 years now with the same regurgitated screen
4-hacked benchmarks- aka dieselgate. showing the "potential" score. IRL it wont happen
5-lying regarding 2x zoom then downplaying it with "no, its 1.6x optical zoom" 2x digital
6-jelly scrolling because the screen is inverted to make room for the dual cameras,
7-no OIS , makes video capture unbearable to look at
8-Left/Right Microphones are reversed in landscape-mode
9-no water resistance
10-no sd card slot

Good list! I am aware of these things though I don't see problems 3 and 4.
QHD is nice for text where there is a noticeable difference versus FHD. Outside that (images,videos), I doubt that anyone even a young person will notice. The misleading benchmark scores isn't much of an issue as it was a manipulation of the slower cluster of CPU cores and only affected the multi-core benchmarks. There is more value to an S7 Edge which is cheaper than the OP5. The S7 Edge only loses in GPU scores.

The title and the article itself bugs me a lot more. The title has a tone similar to those links in webpages that one shouldn't click. The 3 things mentioned does not mean anything as most movies/media will apply sound effects heard from old, film camera operations. The title of the movie is fishy considering the success of Fujifilm Instax.

The ASUS Zenfone 3 zoom is still missing, still not available in most countries and no reviews from a popular source. It is the only dual rear camera implementation that i'd consider

Even longer story, the older lens is better. Outside the center, the image remains soft.

On article OnePlus 5 camera sample gallery (107 comments in total)

Hi DPR, I guess you have to redo the sample images. I was not able to find the huge digital artifacts in sample photos of another review site.

On article OnePlus 5 camera sample gallery (107 comments in total)

Looking at the sample photos, they're quite better than expected and then after a few moments I realized it is too good for a 1/2.8" sensor. I decided to pixel peep in the low ISO photos, it blew up to my face the massive software magic done to these photos. It still doesn't have storage expansion with a launch price higher than ever before. Most disappointing OnePlus

regardless with the weakness and quirks of the Foveon, it renders the red better than conventional sensors

If those falling prices are indication, we might see new DP Quattros with the APSH sensor.

OlyPent: NASA needs to be reminded of its mandate: Explore SPACE. Too much looking down, to much global-warming band-wagoning, space is being ignored while the $200B orbiting white elephant, the ISS, still contributes just about nothing. Thank goodness the ultra-productive Hubble Telescope is still working. And at 1/75th the cost of the ISS. People will remember Hubble's "Orion nebula star nursery" image LONG after they've forgotten the Black Sea shot.

True but it is not the root of the problem but budget allocation. A small fraction from Defense greatly benefits Science and Tech research.

I disagree it is only in its infancy just like the early days of PCs and PDAs or smartphones. Many companies are jumping into VR, AR, or XR now as to not be left behind and gain a lot of experience before it gets ubiquitous.
I believe this will be the next computing device next to smartphones after a decade. I could imagine that we will follow each update/upgrade of a VR device as we do with smartphones today.
VR, in the future, will be primarily used to consume content in the internet as the smartphone did versus the PC. Yet, VR can also be used to create content for it such as creating art, designs, and etc. I could imagine a more compelling computer aided design (CAD) in VR.

Apple still gets it. I am dreaming of a device with faster display refresh rates.

Wow. Actually, there's too much too going in such a short video. My favorite is the scene at 2:40 where the color changes from bright orange to purple.

Intriguing that Microsoft has a take on this one. Probably they find Sony's implementation with many difficulties, thus, only producing a single product from 2014, the selfie camera.
