  • Commented on article Xiaomi Mi Max 2 quick review

    If memory serves, Xiaomi tends to upgrade MIUI (their custom interface that runs atop Android) for a long time on phones, but not so much Android itself. I'm totally open to being wrong, but I...

  • Commented on article Xiaomi Mi Max 2 quick review

    To me it's irrelevant that it's Android. It's a phone, so it seems like a waste of pixels covering it here. I could *maybe* understand covering the flagships each year from Apple, Google and...

  • Hey there, I just thought I'd chip in with my thoughts. I use the Opteka GPN-1, which is available from amazon UK and US. Mine connects via the microphone port, though someone in the Q&A on the UK ...
  • I think hatred is absolutely the wrong word, but I do value having GPS data attached to my RAW files. I ended up buying a £34 unit to do the job, but having it built in would have been much ...
  • I unfortunately feel like I went to Iceland too early, as I didn't have more than a few months to play around with and learn my Nikon before leaving, so did make some key mistakes. One of them was ...
  • Hi, all. I was recently in Iceland and took my camera little too close to a waterfall. The lens is fine now, but needed time to dry out. Before it was working normally, though, I used it the next ...
  • The blogging part of Squarespace doesn't look perfect, but it is visually appealing. What does tempt me is that Squarespace can hook into Smugmug for the purposes of print ordering. That I didn't ...
  • Created discussion thread Looking for blog platform suggestions
    Hi there, hope this is the right place for this. Background: I have a basic Blogger blog and am looking for something that looks nicer. I value being able to easily add an image from Google Photos, ...
  • The Pixels use an IMX378, an updated version of last year's Sony IMX377 sensor that was used on the Nexus 5X and 6P.

  • The HTC 10 doesn't use that sensor. It would be a little early for them to have that one. No, they used the IMX377, which is what the Nexus 5X and 6P used. They had a later version which has OIS,...

  • It's a premium device (UFS 2.0 storage, fastest RAM available etc) which means a premium price. It doesn't have to look amazing and the fingerprint sensor being on the back is welcome to some,...

  • Every major phone is tested. Some are given to them a little early.
    Your blatant hyperbole aside, it is marketing, sure, but every OEM ultimately provides a phone to them and they don't do it...

  • Since when is 2 years ago not "in recent years"?

    They're not the only publication to extol the merits of HDR+ since Google first put it in their camera app, because it is good. Their processing...

  • Wrong. Motorola did it with the Moto X a couple of years back and I'd be shocked if others hadn't, too.

  • Nexus garnered a strong following (myself included) of a vocal minority. The backlash over the discontinuation of that brand is from a few hundred people who like to air their grievances. Nexus...

  • And will your hard drive not have failed in 15 years? Lots of people don't like to trust companies with their data, but a Google (and likely most other) data centre is less likely to fail than a...

  • I imagine they were forced by Sony not providing this sensor (this was the case last year, with the sensor they chose for the 5X and 6P not supporting OIS until later when HTC used it) with OIS to...

  • In real world testing the 5X and 6P are equalling (if not beating) every major phone out there right now. They're a year old. There's no way the new phones won't be better.

  • I'd strongly suggest changing that. Really, any modern DSLR will put any smartphone camera to shame. My D3300 does, for instance.

    I'd suggest instead saying something along the lines of it being a...

  • No, it won't likely (nothing is impossible, but it's extremely unlikely) be available to any bidder, highest or otherwise.

    I realise you were probably trying to be funny and I'm ruining it by...
