Mssimo: I feel bad with people stuck with cameras with XQD cards.

I think any camera should come with built in memory with room for at least 3000 RAW images worth or around 512GB. This would be much faster memory (same kind as found on cel phones)

Have you ever owned a camera with Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro Duo, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, Memory Stick Micro, SmartMedia, mini sd, xD-Picture Card, MultiMediaCard and now XQD card? The market will choose the format and it seems that the SD express and micro SD express will win.

This could also be called the hippie tax.

jim seekers: Can anyone please answer the 2 Questions.
1. Is the Bokeh like the f stop aperture thing you get with the latest iPhone, does it come up with the f that you can vary from f1.4 to f16.
2. Does it have a Night mode like the Haewei Mate 20 has.

@Dualsystemguy The underlying workings of "NightSight" is very interesting but I still think the results are not great or even good. They can stack how every many 1/15 exposures they want but results are underwhelming. Google showed off great side by side comparisons to the iPhone and everyone was trilled about the feature but real world comparisons are much more subjective. Check out this link for example: https://birchtree.me/blog/pixel-3-night-sight-vs-iphone-xs-in-really-really-low-light-comparison/ Its not better in every shot and sometimes just different or brighter. I use a XS myself and when comparing cameras to other phones like the Pixel 3, its not easy to declare a winner. They are more similar than different.

Its a gimmick. At most its automating upping the exposure in post, running heavy noise reduction on it and maybe trying to recover some details on the highlights. It results is garbage but on iPhone or different device, you would just get a dark image. Download Hydra app or any other app with low light mode to get an idea of what it does Its not going to be much different. Its about as useful as 409,600 ISO on some cameras.

See the recent Mi 9 review for some perspective. https://www.dxomark.com/xiaomi-mi-9-camera-review/

The Bokeh on phones is all software based and F numbers are just a way to relate it to large cameras. Depending on what app you are using you can get much more or less than iphone. I would worry more about artifacts than the amount of bokeh (aka shallow DOF). Nightmode is a bit of gimmick and samsung does have modes that enhance low light. These features have little to do with quality of the images but are huge headliners as far as marketing. I would expect the cameras on these phones to be around the top 10 or so of camera phones.

Both cameras have a square charge-coupled device (CCD) detector 1,024 pixels by 1,024 pixels. One has FOV of 45 and other 120 aka fisheye

Mssimo: Im calling this a bit misleading or maybe even cheating. I know the iphone (or almost any camera phone or camera) would not expose only for the sky in automatic setting. Out of the box, the iphone will take a much better picture than the example above. Fair or not very fair questions I would ask: Was any object like a ND filter used, default camera app, spot metering (on the sky by using touch?), default picture profile...and so on. To me the google picture looks good but the iphone looks a little too terrible to be real.

For the Pixel's image BrightnessValue is -2.2. I guess this value is defined as: APEX average scene luminance. Seems like google photographer used a film or ND filter. I dont blame them because it looked very impressive during the presentation and on its own must have sold thousands of units.

found this in the exif data. BrightnessValue -4.119645891 can anyone confirm if this image was underexposed by 4.11 stops?
