Mr Bolton: Or maybe you're just a misty eyed Apple fanboy..

I washed my Galaxy S5 last week. I mean it was submerged in the pocket of my Utilikilt, right there in the bottom of the agitating clothes washer for the whole 12 minute wash cycle-detergent and all-before I figured it out and rescued my phone.

And you know what? It has a 16mp Sony sensor in its camera.. and after I washed the soap off it-under the kitchen sink tap-I dried it off with a towel and put it back in my pocket. It still works just fine.

Oh, then I plugged a regular headphone cord into it. And replaced its battery. Then put the other 64GB SD card into it, because it was full of UHD video. Which I know is a couple hundred pixels shy of full 4K, but who's counting..

..then with the s6 samsung made it not water resistant and even eliminated user removable storage card slot!

Studio1138: I got my 5D Mark IV Thursday, photographed a session on Friday, and I am sending it back on Monday! Not impressed with the overall image quality, especially compared to my 5Dsr and Mark III. Skin tones did not look good, just did not have that Canon look at all. I had high hopes for this camera after waiting 4 long years for it. Makes me appreciate my 5Dsr & Mrk III even more.

Shifter: I once said that I was happy with the iPhone 5s (still owe $480 on it) that some people here got severely bent out of shape at the audacity of such a statement even tho I mainly use a EOS7D. The Canon's and Nikon's should take note that often a smart phone is sometimes better. A lot better.

Stop paying monthly on your phone and just buy them like you do a computer. Pay for it all at the start.

The fragile charging protector broke off my s5 phone several months ago. Can't wait to ditch buggy samsung. Done with them. My home theater bluray player stopped loading discs 3 months ago and is only 3 years old. Garbage.

Ron Poelman: People don't buy phones for the camera.
They buy 'em to brag.
How much of a phone is it ?
Meh, and five times the price of a Motorola.

Brag? Iphone is wide spread. It's been years since an iPhone was a status symbol!

Dimit: It is not the ''world's most popular camera''! Stop spreading false information..Samsung galaxy sx is and for more than 12 reasons!
As far as the whole smartphone specs thing.the truth is : It gives always less for more $$$!...Maybe a bit better construction and apparently a cheerleaders' success!

Never heard of the Samsung sx. Iphone us the world's most popular camera.

tkbslc: Even on my $399 OnePlus, the reviewers gave it a hard time for only having a 1080p screen on a 5.5". And here Apple is going loud and proud with it on their $800+ model. And essentially 720p on the regular 7?

Excited to see the dual lens setup in action, though. I'd really enjoy a 56mm FL for portraits.

It's not a 56mm lens.

photoaddict: I am definitely ordering iPhone 7 as the camera is significantly better than what's available in my iPhone 6, especially the selfie camera which is currently 1.2 MP... too low... 7 MP is just perfect.

What I noticed is that the skin tones are MUCH more like the skin tones on film - the skin looks less red and more smooth without harsh highlights. Did anyone noticed that in photo samples on apple website?

Looking forward to what reviews have found with iPhone 7.

Why do you need 7MP of your face?

zzzxtreme: I still find it funny people spend more than $400 for a phone. My $250 sony z1 compact still works great with its snapdragon 800

Good for you, Jimmy.

TyphoonTW: Nice images. When I was 16 all I could afford was a 60$ Kodak point&shoot film camera, feelsbadman.

kids are allowed to spend waaaaaay too much money these days. Companies have turned kids into consumers which is not a good thing with college costing so much.

photophile: Didn't Lytro already do this ?

No. Their gimmick was taking multiple pics at different focus distances at the same time, hence why resolution was very low on their prototypes.
