supeyugin1: Why not to use good ol' zoom instead of this computational junk with microscopic sensors? In for Canon G9X II!

Yes, I can put G9X in a shirt pocket.

GlobalGuyUSA: Hey SAMSUNG & SONY -- can you team up and put a Cellphone in an RX100 V? You see, I only want to carry one heavy thing in one pocket, since I got my keys in the other. Set your differences aside and do the thing.

Yours truly,

Make me a Samsung-Sony RX100 V Galaxy phone.

I'd prefer something like Canon G9X or G7X. G9X is a bit more compact.

Samsung had a patent for interchangeable lens phone, with 1" sensor and Samsung NX Mini mount, and for the mount cap lens as well, but it never materialized.

VadymA: Steve Job's dream was to "make a dent in the Universe" and he certainly did. With his vision for iPhone and iPad he completely changed the way we browse Internet, find directions, learn, read, and yes take pictures. Almost ten years since he's gone and there was nothing as revolutionary in consumer electeoncics as those two Apple devices. Not even from Apple themselves. I am sure without his vision for an iPhone, we would still be punching buttons on BlackBerries...

I can name you a few names which made much bigger dent in the computer industry, for example Denis Ritchie and Brian Kernigan. Without them no iPhone would exist, and Apple too. I can name you more people like them.

james s. kennedy: Happy 4th to everyone.

I have better things to do than hate Apple. I wonder what our new boss, Putin, uses.

Putin has much more experience in politics than Trump, for sure. Look how he destroys Megyn Kelley in their interview.

Apparently he is not our boss, and never been. CNN invented it.

LG Prada with capacitive touchscreen was introduced before the iphone.
Do you mean that millions of flies can't be wrong? I agree with you. That's why I never bought an iphone.

SnapHappy32. This is complete BS, even capacitive touchscreen was featured before that with LG Prada. Not to tell that Windows Mobile has more apps than Apple at the beginning, and hardware was better as well.

supeyugin1: Never had an iPhone and not planning to pay premium prices for subpar hardware. Nokia and Samsung always had an edge over iPhones in terms of cameras. Before iPhone was released, I used HTC smartphones running Windows Mobile, then I switched to Android. Also tried Nokia smartphones, and while thier cameras were great, but the OSes were not as good as Android. So iPhone didn't affect me at all.

Yes, Kaelis, especially camera hardware is subpar, and was always worse than Nokia or Samsung.

BTW, Samsung was one of the first to put a camera on a phone, it was SCH-V200 in 2000. Apple didn't even think about phones then, they were busy with iPad.

You guys are really funny. Apple invented nothing. I used smartphones few years before Apple released it's first iPhone, and I was able to browse the internet, use Google maps and read my emails, even yahoo messenger worked there, and I was able to take (crappy) pictures. It also had touchscreen, but I needed to use stylus for that. NABD. This was an HTC TyTN in 2006.

supeyugin1: Another phone with junk camera. When are we going to get something close to Panasonic CM1? Or at least something with at least 1/1.7" size sensor?

You can use raw if you don't like jpeg from CM1

panther fan: This seem to be the exact same specs of the oppo R11. (Recently anounced)
Probably a full component block delivered by Sony.

Google is too greedy to put OIS in their phones. Even Apple has it now, which is also very greedy.

No SD slot, no OIS, microscopic sensor - no buy.

Looks great on paper. I wonder when manufacturers will start using 1/1.7" or larger sensor in their flagships? I'd like to see something like Canon S120 or Fuji XQ2 module in a phone. But this will never happen in a near future.
