sh10453: The fierce competition, the race to put a new product on the market before the other competitor does, the intense pressure on engineers and the squeezing of their budgets by bean counters (so executives can line up their pockets with bigger bonuses), ..., do not give engineering sufficient testing time for new products,

This is not limited to phones. Other products will hit the market with such problems (TVs, cameras, computer graphics boards, various electronic devices, etc.).
So this will not be the last we hear about such problems. No surprises anymore.

Such issues, if not handled with grace (towards the customer), and especially if they are repeated, will do a lot of damage to the reputation of a company and its products. They can't expect to live on past glory.

Companies need to start taking care of their engineers more than taking care of their bean counters.

@Zodiacfml, What! Like Android users DON'T upgrade as frequently! Sounds like you are just jealous of the money person you aspire to be!

On article Google Pixel XL camera review (181 comments in total)
In reply to:

newby mcnewberstein: The reviewer is out of their freakin' mind. The Pixel XL's image quality is clearly leagues ahead of the competition thanks to its image stacking HDR. The comparison tool shows the results: Pixel at 1150 ISO has more detail than Lumia 950 does at 320 ISO. I don't think your reviewer fully appreciates how much image stacking improves image quality. This camera deserves 90%+ and a gold mark.

Perhaps you should take up reviewing then!

DuxX: Thanks to Television and photography one sick man, a killer, and one militant terrorist group is successfully sent their message to the world. Great job!
Who can say and prove now that all of this (photo session and message sending) is not planed before this monstrous crime against humanity, ha?

If anyone thinks that this photograph or any like it will popularise, promote, or glamourise this despicable and evil act or the ideology behind it, then you are quite simple wrong.

Any sane, rational person viewing this photograph will be repulsed by this scum's act and his perverted ideology.

Gavril Margittai: I am not sure it is in the interest of the free world to popularize the picture of the assassin (professional photographer or not). But this is just my personal opinion.

techjedi: With great respect, the photographer helped the assassin glamourize the murder and this photo will serve as a recruiting tool for terrorist groups. How exactly does this serve as an encouragement for pro photography? It is a great picture, but I am fairly sure the civilized world would have been no less off without it.

arhmatic: The User Interface is a significant part of the shooting experience. I am glad to see Haselblad giving this proper attention. I hope all others would follow. Fujifilm you too!

@Mfritter I understand your frustration! But, look at it this way, it must be a nightmare being a UI designer with all the (at times very warranted) bitching that comes their way. Can't please everybody sadly.

naturetech: I really want this flash, and a system to go with it, but sadly I'm broke right now with all the Christmas shopping, bills, car repairs, bills, etc.. :(

@naturetech: All the money you would spend on that pagan festival called Christmas can go towards your new system which you deserve. Same with all the money you would spend on car repairs, tax, gas etc.

Give up Christmas and riding a bike may help.

Maoby: For those interested !

I have here a comparison between the Olympus E-10 (2000) and the first 4/3, the Olymus E-1 (2003)

https://www.flickr.com/photos/maoby/albums/72157666927038884

Interesting comparison. Thanks for posting. I still use my E-1 and it still gives great photos.
