Achiron: The real life low light images (why didn't you provide one Lars?) shoe incredible performance at ISO 3200.

Because in my real life the camera did not use ISO 3200 once

Nobby2016: RRS or GITZO..... the best.. no need for LED and other gimmicks.

well, I'd argue the Golf seats more people, stores more luggage, has better fuel-economy and represents much better value for money :)

Prixnobeldefoot: would be better if the captions weren't on the picture, it's like cropping the image.

guest2015: i have a few moto phones 2015 E and G. They are both ok while the batteries are still new. I also have a 2 year old samsung S3. Its battery life is very short. I can buy a new battery and replace it for ~$10+. Can't replace motorola batteries. Users will have to ship phones to motorola for very expensive battery replacement service, if it's even possible in the new models. I'm not even sure how G battery can be replaced. There are no screws, completely sealed. Because of non-replaceable battery i'll look into other brands for my next phone. I like my G camera most of the time in day light, but non-replaceable battery is a deal breaker.

there are very few high.end phones these days that allow swapping batteries...LG is your best bet.

kobakokh: ZTE is not just chinese brand, about 63% of parts in any mobile phones in the world are made by ZTE, its a largest mobile phones and parts manufacturer in the world...

I don't know about smartphone components but certainly make a lot of mobile communication infrastructure, competing with Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens and the like...and Huawei of course

In reply to:

noflashplease: ZTE is the "other" Chinese brand. You know, the one that isn't being sold at Leica stores.

there are quite a few of those :)

happypoppeye: So the rescued film project doesn't have the resources to rescue film ...probably should have thought of that before creating the project.

well, seems they are finding ways to get it developed, deserves kudos in my book...

Emacs23: I have S7 and the camera is wonderful. But the phone itself is crap-crap-crap: still lagging (samsung veterans say it was even worse in previous models), full of low quality apps like facebook or skype. Cannot recommend it to anyone. Avoid samsung.

it's usually the manufacturer or carrier specific apps that you can't uninstall...I have never seen a device that would not let you uninstall Facebook or Skype, even when pre-installed

In reply to:

Digital Suicide: They can make even octa-cam system, I'm staying on single lens cameraphone. Hopefully not all of the makers will follow this ridiculousness.

Dual cams can have real benefits. Apart from the simply having two focal lengths as mentioned above imho the most interesting application is merging exposures for better detail and less noise...Huawei has done it on the P9...would be great to see an Apple approach to this topic.

If you don't need/want Facebook or Skype just deinstall and that's that :)

Bobthearch: Fixed focal length and fixed aperture combined with a tiny sensor... not my idea of "serious".
Yet another cell phone with a super wide angle lens that can't take photos of anything in the near-range without horrible distortion? Please, in the name of all that is holy, STOP using cell phones for closeup "selfies". Ugh!

Very flattering comment, Bobthearch, thank you.

so fixed focal length means "not serious" I guess there are a few Magnum photographers who might disagree with you ;)

In reply to:

FantasticMrFox: So they changed everything that was great about their first model - they raised the price and made it look more like an iPhone, with rounded edges etc.

No thanks.

front the front it almost looks like Galaxy Note...problem is they all look almost the same these days ;)

Mark Banas: I wonder how this differs from Cameralends.com

According to them the main difference is that they also have camera shops and studios in their database, so you can either rent from an individual or a shop.

In reply to:

XEddieX: Decent size battery.

The battery at the same time has to be this big and also can be this big because the phone has a 6.4" screen...some people would probably call it a tablet :)

In reply to:

zodiacfml: LG must be jealous. I'm baffled they forgot to make a loudspeaker as an attachment to the G5.

Why do phones today have to be so thin?

well, one model is exclusive to Verizon at the moment and has different camera, bigger battery and shatterproof display, those are quite a few differentiators. Also, the phones are so thin, so the Moto Mods can be attached without making them unpocketable.

In reply to:

Marty4650: I own a first generation Moto X, and I love it. So this news interests me.

However, I don't see much future for modular phone devices, since smartphones are essentially throwaways after a few years. This is reminiscent of the modular Ricoh GXR system. I wonder how many folks spent lots of money for modules only to later discover the line was dropped, and they are forever stuck with 2009 techology?

Well, Motorola/Lenovo say the modules will work with future Moto Z generations...question is how many of those generations will be there and are you gonna get one ;)
