Mister Joseph: So, worse IQ than previous generation (e.g. Samsung S6) cellphones? Could've been nice if Kodak went all the way like a Samsung Galaxy Zoom.

Also, I remember Kodak dropping their camera business during a time when they were had nice devices like the PlaySport, PlayTouch, Zi8 etc.

Kodak doesn't exist any more. It's a paid for licensed brand name , that's all read the article.

telawrence: I don't think we should be surprised at the price for this lens. With the market dropping for cameras due to phones they are doing what Sony is doing and focusing on professional lenses at top prices. They have to make a profit like every other company. Pros will buy this in droves. This is the same reason they aren't making APS-C lenses, why bother when pros mainly use FF and they can make more money per lens on a FF lens than they will on an APS-C lens.

Phones aren't replacing users of 70-200 f/2.8 zooms! Doh!

Interestingness: Relative to that being from a phone and watching that on my 23" monitor, it looks pretty good.

My next phone will be another Apple device but there is nothing wrong with the Pixel's output.

Screen size doesn't factor in because the bigger the screen the farther away your eyes are from the screen.

I have/used it. Decent iso 800 but iso 1600 was clumped up noise reduction.

ProfHankD: My wife and daughter both had iPhones which didn't burn, but had their cases burst by expanding batteries. Serious problems with glued-in batteries are common; Samsung was just unfortunate enough to (very rarely) have a very dangerous failure mode for the one in the S7. In my opinion, the disadvantages of glued-in batteries, which include various environmental issues involving disposal, far outweigh the advantages. Samsung used to have removable batteries -- as they do in the S5 that I use -- and I hope removable, sealed, batteries are what everybody gets back to. BTW, it wouldn't be that hard for the battery to be smart enough to detect a pending problem and disable itself.

Serious problems are "common"? Nope.

WillWeaverRVA: If Google were smart they'd offer a discount for Note 7 users looking to switch to the Pixel. The Pixel is looking like the class of the field in the world of Android smartphones. I'm almost tempted to get one to replace my iPhone 6.

At the very least, they need to introduce "does not explode" into their marketing...

No way to prove being a note user since you have to return it to get your $700 back. Doubt Google wants to give users a free new phone for a note 7.

RedFox88: This is a HTC phone with the name Google on the back, right? Google doesn't make phones.

No this article says it's a HTC phone but doesn't say it on the phone anywhere. They used to make phones but that came and went when they quickly bought then sold Motorola.

Dimit: The most popular cellphone in the world is Samsung Galaxy,not i-phone.Profoundly,same applies to the respective camera. Period.

No, you got that wrong. Samsung sells the most smart phones but they sell several /many models. Iphone is the best selling model, always.

The Galaxy S7 has noticeably better IQ.

Samsung smears detail. Plus you got the buggy android power hog. No thanks. Been there done with that.

Timbukto: This is why I feel the iPhone optics are so subpar, this is what my personal S6 can do in RAW -
That is 16MP at a demanding 16x9 aspect ratio. I've honestly shot softer MFT kit lenses before at wide angle wide open. This is what I find so 'grating' about the recent iPhone praise and its ability to shoot RAW. I am getting RAW update for free on an old phone with what easily looks to be superior optics, proof in the pudding.

Samsung smears detail. Yuck. Apple knows how to balance detail with grain.

avatar77: I'd like to see the Galaxy Note 7 results. Perhaps the exploding battery will help it ace the low-light test?

Note 7..You mean one that HASN'T burned up ? And is note 7. Nobody calls their stuff galaxy. That's been a failed marketing attempt by samsung. It's just note 7 or s7.

Their app is for on the go, mobile handheld devices which are held vertically. This just means you are too old.
