Mark K: I just bought my first action cam...Yi 4K made by Xiaomi. Comparing to GoPro...I believe it is years behind in terms of all aspects..
Nevertheless have been a fan of Xiaomi's phone accessories..most of them are of high quality. The fall of GoPro has nothing to do with current CEO...forgive my ignorance but simply as a result of fierce competitive world producing extreme cheap GoPro clones and one of these is made by Xiaomi. GoPro has never let us down.

@Mike FL
The US is targeting Huawei and ZTE not because they copied American product but because they are out innovating American companies so they are targeted to prevent them from setting the 5G standard

This just makes me think a permanent price cut is coming so I shouldn't buy now

Kendrick Lamar's rap album "Damn" also won a Pulitzer Prize so I am not sure what it means

That's an article from 15 years ago

Team Yeti: What a colossal waste of time, money, and the legal system.

Especially when there are plenty of animals out there truly being abused and mistreated.

Like most NGO, the actual business is fundraising, not whatever it is trying to sell.

Peiasdf: A grand jury of regular citizens agreed with the office that a tripod could be mistake for a weapon at night; a group of photographer bemoaning on the internet that regular people are dumb mistaking a tripod for weapon.

There is a reason I don't call myself an amateur photographer but a photo enthusiast. Photographers are creeps. Super telephoto lens at the beach for landscape; tiny camera between legs taking photos of napping subway passengers; camera covered in electrical tapes and hold at waist high for candid waist level street photography.

You guys don't know how creepy you look to the rest of the country. Who in their right mind would say "here is a police traffic stop, let me setup a tripod behind the officer to get a nighttime landscape"? This obviously isn't the first police vs photographer case and the public will continue to be on the police's side because photographer don't know how to behave normal.

@eMTi
You are living proof why I said photographers often don't realize regular people do not think like photographers. I took about 700 photos a day on vacation; the friend that invited me to go on the trip took a total of 50 photos the entire 2 weeks. Most people don't take photos that isn't their kids, pet or cake and they don't want to be visible on someone else's photo.

Murat Sahan: I checked it out on the Sony website it was 236 grams thats 50 grams heavier than the Samsung Galaxy s9+ and the Huawei P20 Pro. Quite a lot I think.

They should have used the thickness to put in dual 1/1.7" sensors and large battery. As it stands, this phone feels like a regular flagship with some extra gimmicks.

tkbslc: Did they switch to a new fingerprint sensor? Several generations of Sony phones have used fingerprint sensors that have a copyright dispute that meant they had to be disabled in North America. That's a major downside compared to the competition.

Yes, the dispute was resolved and SONY phones have working fingerprint sensor now.

cosinaphile: the adoption of the idiotic dongle means i will never use such a phone .... even if it were free ... id sell it and buy an uncrippled phone with the proceeds .

a shame as it otherwise looks very good

If only airlines keep up with the time and allows BT connection to IFE

Both sensors are the same size but why is one f/1.8 and the other f/1.6? If they are different design, then image couldn't be aligned perfectly.

SONY units to reviewers and slowly replace SONY parts with Samsung parts in later batches. I think this have been the norm since Galaxy S5

ozturert: Only 10-30 USD per sensor and lens couple? Quite inexpensive actually. Profit margins are huge in this phone market.

Then it is not an Apple parts then as Apple don't sell parts. Nothing wrong with that as I'd probably do the same but don't expect its the same as Apple parts, it never is.

Apple does pay more attention to QC than Android OEMs. You won't find Apple swapping out component supplier mid production or leave hardware issue unaddressed

Not trolling nor clickbaiting. We don't feel it when we see people walking around with a camera taking photo of everything because we are photographer/enthusiast. A lot of regular people don't like taking photo nor people taking photo nor appearing in someone else's photo and we have to learn that.

@Gatoraied
That $3 part probably come from an iTune locked phone that's stripped for parts. You can find entire iTune locked iPhone on eBay.

Apple and Huawei are definitely leading smartphone development on the crazy/controversial hardware front

nerd2: They just decided to use their own ARM processor for their macs...

I have totally no idea what they will put inside their 'pro' machines. Bunch of iPhone chips?

Zenza R: I wonder how much thicker an iphone should be to include such a relatively big sensor? 3 mm or 4?

None of the OEMs include camera protrusion in thickness measurement. I'd rather they all make the phone thicker to include a bigger battery

Probably a Samsung user that bought into Samsung's commercial
