On photo Motorbike Mechanic in the Its Occupational-Mechanics challenge (14 comments in total)

Well I don't like overcooked HDR images in general, but there are some things HDR is good with, even when taken to an extreme.
This one is a good example (even though I would have done it differently).

All in all, very nice picture and congratulations on your win! :-)

I'm not "people", and those look bad even at web size...
Plus, those have likely been taken under controlled conditions and ideal illumination in order to promote the product.
Just make the proportion
smartphone advertising shot : facebook average shot = this press release : what you'll get

rrccad: huh .. isn't the eye capable of resolving down to around 300-400 dpi and that's really it?

isn't this slightly overkill? however if you are casting to your 4k tv it makes somewhat of sense, however, this just looks like a way to suck the living daylights out of your battery life.

Nope, handset & display size are also different.
My point is that this spec doesn't make sense, and if the Premium sells, it will probably because the "premium" allure and the big numbers the marketing office can put on leaflets.
Not necessarily because it's something worth buying.
my 2c ofc

P.S.: the fact that the two share the same battery is proof that the 4k feature is nothing more than a gimmick.
Look at the OP2 battery and how long (short) it lasts, then pair same 810 SoC with a 4k screen. Whops!

So, because of the possibility of using it with an accessory (that maybe 0.5% of the buyers will use) you are giving everyone higher-than-optimal energy consumption?
Doesn't make much sense to me...

At present, I believe 1080p is the sweet spot for tablet and 720p for phones.
Maybe 1080p on a phone, just so you can see fullhd footage at 100% without scaling, but that's it.

nerd2: LCD-less camera 8MP 1/3.2" CMOS sensor? My smartphone has 16MP 1/2.6" BSI CMOS sensor WITH WQHD OLED display. Why on the earth do we need this kind of monstrosity?

Poweruser: Why not just get a GoPro?

Here the focus seems to be video rather than stills...
however, looks interesting, if a little overpriced maybe..?

Marcin 3M: It can't be used with strobes if I'm not wrong...

Thought you were refering to the supposed "flash lag", hence the camera itself...
The lack of a subject didn't help... ;-)

Ken Croft: 24-270 is not a 30x zoom is it? It looks more like 13x to me.

LoL seemed quite reasonable, but 720? no thx...
