So it's official, the days of larger sensors designs (Panasonic CM1, Nokia 808 etc.) are fading away, somehow they are trying to convince you that a 1/2.6" sensor can score better than those 1 inch or 1/1.2" sensors by paying Dxo, then they can keep giving you smaller sensors in these premium flagships that cost $1,000 which used to be $500-$600, and make you believe they are actually worth $1200, $1,500, $1,800 in the next generations. More power to Dxo to make it happen, smaller is better.

I guess Samsung did not pay DXO enough like Apple did, 1/3" sensor could get you a 94, while the best 1/2.3" sensors out there like both HTC U11 and Google pixel barely cracking 90? It's just way to obvious, don't tell me software makes up for it, there is no reason a 1/3" sensor can be anywhere close to being 80 let alone 90+. It's like saying m43 sensors can be 100+ with good software to beat full frame sensors.

I wonder how much Apple paid DXO, really a combination of 1/3" and 1/3.6" sensors gets you a 94 nowadays while dual cams with 1/2.3" and 1/2.6" or 1/2.8" gets well below that?

On article iPhone 8 Review: Pushing the limits of photography (43 comments in total)

Pushing the limits of reusing the same 1/3.6" and 1/3" sensors as previous generations as Android competitors have moved on to 1/2.3" senors years ago, and adding a flashier price tag of $1000 to make it more "Appealing", Apple surely knows how to maximize shareholder's profit well.

After a $11,000 price drop to $14,995, it's still $10,000 too expensive, enough said.

It's about time Sony test the water with their 1' sensor in their next gen smartphone like the one they used for RX 100 V, Panasonic tried this before and I'm sure Sony could use a much better design to the advantage, their current offerings do not sell well, so might as well try that to dethrone Samsung and Apple in an unique way.

Another half-baked product by Google, if you have an usable camera app, might as well stay original and be happy.

It's possible for Instagram, but I doubt Snapchat will still be listed in the exchange at the current rate of loss of 400 millions of per quarter loss, stock price has dived way below of IPO already currently, I see it disappear on the face of earth in 5 years instead.

NZ Scott: An acquaintance bought $20,000 worth of Bitcoin two years ago.

It's now worth $250,000.

And another two years later, the same $20,000 will be worth $2,500,000, they could keep repeating this,so 10 years later the same $20,000 will now be $25,000,000,000. Yes, that's right turning $20,000 into 25 billion, smartest scam ever.

I honestly don't know who is more trustworthy in this case, DPreview or the LG that has had the famous boot-loop for generations of the G series along with well known QC issues, but I will avoid LG even if it scored 90+, what's good for a high score if it won't last anyways?

Not having an iphone is the best thing I have done to my life, just like I would not buy a Leica camera ever, there are simply too many better options out there at a much lower price nowadays to chase after Apple.

They are basically saying for the intended purpose of this camera: Sports or wildlife, we do not have the telephoto lens for it, yet you can't off-brands from Canikon, so stick with Canikon for now until the Sony A9-II.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2754 comments in total)

Tried it in the store alongside the D500, egonomics and build quality is way better with the D500, plus as soon as you put any decent sized lens on it, the balance and handling are way off compared to the D500. I would imagine Nikon D5 would be far better for the audience it's targeting. Decent specs on paper though.

noflashplease: I wonder how much longer Samsung and other Android OEMs will be able to maintain iPhone style pricing for flagship handsets? I'm impressed with how well Lenovo has maintained the product cycle at Google's former Motorola subsidiary, as well as the aggressive pricing.

Why pay more? You pay for the privilege to get the "burning" experience from Samsung which is an unheard experience you only get from the Koreans, this "premium" experience is alone is well worth the double premium price it bundles with.

mar2jeter: The United States version will not have Quad Dac audio on it. Major fail already LG. Korea and other Asian markets will have it. Also the United States version will only get the 32GB version while the Asian markets will have the 64GB version.

They shot themselves in the foot with the famous boot-loop problems in the G series. Too bad, they are not Samsung who can burn you alive and people still blindly go after their phones or Apple who has not had any true innovation since the first gen and still manage to shamelessly charge people close to $1000 like they are Ferrari of the supercars.
