JordanAT: ...Stop. I just had a stroke of genius. Are you ready? Open your mouth, baby birds, cause Mama's about to drop you one sweet, fat nightcrawler. Here she comes: Put another selfie cam on that f****r, too. That's right. Five cameras, two selfie, and make the second one landscape. You heard me—the second selfie is landscape. It's a whole new way to think about taking photos. Don't question it. Don't say a word. Just key the music, and call the chorus girls, because we're on the edge—the photo's edge—and I feel like dancing.

LOL. Go ahead and dance and please post the vid of you dancing.

Henrikw: 3 cameras/sensors? I wish they would just work on how to implement one larger sensor instead of fitting more gimmicks. I even wouldn't mind if there was a bit of bulk to fit in a proper sized sensor. But I understand that most people don't see noise and bad image quality. They see that there are 3 rather than 1 lens are are immediately convinced of the "upgrade"

I would rather have better DR and colour over mulitple focal lengths. Having a "zoom" would be a great bonus.

Wye Photography: Sometimes I ponder on how smartphones can have a genuine optical zoom capability. Perhaps an answer could be in the Minolta DiMage X and its folded optics...

Yo Suntan, Sorry. As you "replied" to my comment I assumed you were reffering to the Minolta, my apologies. I think your comment deserves its own post. Regards.

Hey Suntan, I think you should actually read the article. The Minolta DiMage X has one camera and 12 steps when zooming from wide to tele. Ergo, the zoom is optical and genuine. A very clever idea. Regards.

David Fell: Hmm $200 for a cheap magnifying glass effect, you can buy a cheap UV filter, smear Vaseline on it for less and have '000s of effects too, or cut-outs in manifestation film for a less messy approach. The example photos don't make it too compelling either.

One man's whine is another man's Rioja.

Hinder: Embearassing......what does this have to do with anything?

It is paw. When a company has to Panda to trends and fads it is liable to put one in a Grizzly mood and make a Spectacle of itself.

gameshoes3003: Don't think many DPR readers are going to care about this since this is a more western-centric website. I even bet very few even know what LINE even is. I wonder how well this would do in East Asian markets though where LINE certainly is much more popular.

I have no idea what Line is.

MrBrightSide: What an awesome little piece of tech. Take it with you when you're out and about at business mixers or other networking meeting, shoot awesome photos of your potential clients, give them the pictureand bang! You're in like Flynn.
It also looks like the perfect size to produce nudie playing cards. Either way, it's a winner.

I think you must. I need a laugh!

PhilDunn: Why bother with an Android tablet? Even Google has given up on competing with Apple when it comes to tablets. You'd be buying into an ecosystem where actual tablet app support is tiny compared to the iPad and hardware performance is poor. Samsung has also showed no serious focus when it comes to tablets. They'll put something out there or you'll hear rumors of something coming that gets some people excited but in the end they have shown no real dedication in competing with the iPad. It’s no surprise that a lot of Android phone users have iPads. Android is simply not viable competition for the iPad. The cheapest iPad, for example, is an outstanding deal. Very powerful and pencil support.

Hey Guys, look, I love my Apple devices. I don't want to use other devices no matter how good or whatever they are. I don't care if your Surface Pro blows away my iPad, I don't want to use a Surface. I have used enough of all sorts of devices to know that I love using my Apple devices.

If you love your Android or Microsoft Surface or whatever then that's fab. I wholeheartedly commend you for YOUR choice.

Some of you need a good spanking and need to grow up and accept that other people like other things than you. I mean some of the comments are so laden with passive aggressive testosterone influenced "my dick is bigger than yours" that it is like watching kids in kindergarten.

Please rejoice in whatever you use and accept and respect the free choice of others. You'll be dead soon enough and life is too precious to waste all that negativity on other people's choice.

@Jerry Ci, Please don't tar all of us with the same brush. I am a Apple user and if you enjoy using Android then that is fab. It is personal choice and that is the way it should be. If the end user is happy then that is all that matters.

All these Apple vs everybody else arguments are futile, puerile and a complete waste of time.

PatrickSmith: I hope this review was posted by a bot, and that the dpreview team is on holiday. Or this could be a good reason for quitting this site.

I, for one, am glad that Barney and his crew (Pugh, Pugh, Barney Britton, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grubb) attend to articles such as this and I miss throw back Thursday.

Sure will boy. All the money I would have saved by not buying all those digital cameras over the last 17 years could have paid off me mortgage.

FF! PFFT! 6x6 is the way to go! not those namby-pamby APS-C sensors that get really noisy at ISO25,600
