Terry Breedlove: They need flashing bright colored neon update notes so that the people who are crying like little babies might read the damn updates before installing them. It was all spelled out in the update notes so pay attention.

Yep, 7+ still on 10 here

sirhawkeye64: Good, but a little too late. The damage has been done (to their reputation). This is how it should have been all along, or just warn the user that the battery has reached the end of its life, but don't gimp performance. For some people, if they can get through an 8 hour work day without recharging, that might be fine. Many people carry around little USB portable chargers anyway...

Samsung phones (as far as I can remember) have had a Low Power mode too that you can switch on to save battery power (I believe the more recent versions of the iPhone have this too, or it became available in IOS 10 or something). either way, let the user decide (as they are doing now).

Had a Samsung, never again. And Samsung 's low power mode has so much disabled including color!

digilt: A one year old Apple iPhone 7 has to be slowed down to avoid unexpected shutdown, that’s unacceptable. The characteristics of lithium-ion battery are well known. If a few percent changes in the impedance of the battery will cause unexpected shutdowns, then Apple’s engineers have done a very poor design. Meanwhile, other manufactures such as LG and Samsung don’t have to throttle down their processors for aging batteries, why only Apple has to do that?

Not for a high speed computer that runs nearly always on the battery 24/7. A laptop that's plugged in runs off wall power once the battery is full until the battery is down to 95%

Even panasonic and Sony offer autofocus.

anticipation_of: I still don’t understand why phone makers sacrifice durability and practicality by covering their phones in glass. When was the last time you saw a phone that wasn’t in a case? It’s all the more necessary when the both the back and front are glass.

Honestly, most of the people I see with their phones in my office building (22 floors) do not use a case. Same with kids I see using them.

G Sciorio: Once Nikon goes all in with mirrorless Canon will and vice versa. Love my 5D4’s but with an EVF and touch screen it would be hard to pass up.

Canon is far more in depth in mirrorless than nikon whose first attempt fizzled and was discontinued. They don't even have 1" sensor compacts ...which are also mirrorless

Kivivuori: I´m still hoping that one of the manufactures of high end phones will finally come to market with a phone with 35 mm equivalent lens and a 1/1.2" 24-28 MB sensor.

What's the point of a variable aperture lens on a phone with a tiny sensor? Everything is already in focus all the time due to the very short focal length!!

ttran88: Companies are better off making their products perfect before releasing them than trying to fix them with updates. People will never be happy when you try to make things better just let them live with what they paid for in the first place. Canon does this best and that’s why they are #1!!

Those dats are gone. Why? Updates can be sent out over the Internet. No way to make a product "perfect " when you can't possibly test it with all the different lenses that are out there and in the different parameters that can be used!

Snapchat ended up with a ton of unsold units of their stupid sunglasses attempt. Google canceled their Glass project, that should have been a clue to everyone else!

Kaonashi: Has anyone been asking for another zoom in this focal range? Has Sony not been reading any of the APS-C user base comments? We wanted a quality 16-50 2.8-4f not this.

I was upgrading from Nex-6 - 6300 - 6500 but now I start to understand that only Fuji can provide decent lenses for crop sensor. I am not looking to get any of A7xx as I already have a Canon FF, just wanted a very decent back up system when travelling. This is shaping to be definitely not it.

Who is this "we" you speak in behalf of?! You mean you

John Sansom: Personally I would be happy to pay a subscription fee to view DPreview. We know classic banner ads on websites are in decline and DPR can only exist if it is a profit making business and that money has to come from somewhere. DPR must be the de facto news site for so many photographers and it must be able to continue with its editorial independence.

No, DPR has stated their goal is to pay for their costs, not make profit, nor lose money but bring in sales for amazon. Last they said, amazon stays out of their busy, but is responsible for coordinating and putting the ads up

anticipation_of: Is there any chance we could see less emphasis on price as a factor in camera reviews? I would rather that the pro/con lists and final scores be based purely on performance. Readers can then decide for themselves whether or not they’re willing and able to pay the asking price for the performance being offered. I can compare prices very easily on my own; I read reviews to learn how good a camera is, period, not how good it is for the money. If a camera is particularly good value or particularly expensive for what it is then that’s worth mentioning, but I’d prefer if it didn’t affect the camera’s review score.

Many people spend based on the selling price
