How is it possible this camera is so much bigger yet so much less capable than A7R III? 48g heavier yet half the battery life. 1.5 times the volume yet half the sensor size. It is like Fuji told its designer to built it extra big to look serious because they didn't invest enough in the actual tech

LG have the worse IQ of any flagship this year. They better tweak their camera.

noisephotographer: "Auto HDR+ is a fancy word Google uses for photographic black magic, and unlike its predecessor it is switched on by default when using the camera app on the Pixel 2."
That's not correct. Auto HDR+ was the default mode of the first Pixel. The only difference is that now you need to go to the settings in order to enable the different HDR+ settings.
And actually even the Nexus phones had Auto HDR+ by default. But the Nexus Auto HDR+ was a different mode. The Nexus Auto HDR+ was just a automatic HDR+ On/off switch whereas the Pixel's HDR+ (Auto) mode uses HDR+ for every photo unless you take burst shots. Because it uses HDR+ for every photo, it isn't called HDR+ Auto anymore, just HDR+. The firsr Pixel also used HDR+ for every photo, the name was just different (HDR+ Auto).
By the way the iPhone's HDR Auto is just a HDR On/Off switch .

Stop passing off your side loaded Nexus 5X as Pixel 2. You don't need to go into setting to change HDR+ on Pixel 2, it is right there in the camera app.

noisephotographer: It's very good that the review compared the iPhone X and the Pixel 2 in auto mode, but tried to get the same shutter speed in auto mode. This way it's much more comparable. The iPhome X is much worse with 1/30s and would be probably even worse if one would compare the blown out highlights/dynamic range.

Each phone is on auto. There is no need to purposely disable a feature just to showcase a purposed advantage.

Show me photos from your iPhone X vs Nexus 5x comparison.

Biowizard: #TRUMP can't call the latest US Military cock-up or atrocity "#FakeNews" if it's been recorded by military photographers, so he gets rid of the photographers. There's no end to this man's deviation.

As someone already mentioned above, this budget was passed under Obama a couple months before Trump swore in. Fake news will be fake news.

MrBrightSide: Penny wise and pound foolish—as usual for Washington. Combat camera units capture stills and video during battle so that it can be reviewed later with the goal of making fighting safer and more effective for our soldiers and Marines.

There are other uses for the photos and videos as well, but policy makers, elected officials, and bureaucrats never think of the welfare of the troops, their only motivators are keeping their jobs and the many perks it affords them.

When their foolish decisions result in even more Americans coming home in body bags, they make themselves feel better by getting together with their lobbyist buddies and swilling down the $25 cocktails at the Benjamin Bar in Trump's International hotel in D.C.

You can read all about what combat photographers did in this awesome story from the late lamented Pop Photo. https://www.popphoto.com/how-to/2011/11/front-lines-life-us-military-photographer

So true MrBrightSide. Current events are not for the living to judge but those that comes 500 years later. Maybe in 500 years the US will be as remembered/forgotten as The Portuguese Empire

The soldiers are better off parading down Pennsylvania Ave then dying in some hole in Afghanistan or Iraq

fmaxwell: We don't have the budget to pay for combat photography that shows the brave troops fighting for us, but we can spend millions to have our military parade through the military streets of Washington, DC to amuse Donald Trump? It's sad that our country has sunk to that level.

We don't have money for veteran hospital but we have money to overthrow Tunis, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Ukraine.

See how partisan politics prevents people from seeing objectivity?

Tommi K1: That is a sad news, and very odd really that how much does it cost for them to have a couple units really in the service? It shouldn't be than few thousands per year per person...

Better parade then drop bombs on brown people right

iPhone X is only $50 more than Pixel 2 XL

NJOceanView: I'm an iPhone non-X user for its interface, but was impressed with the Pixel 1 and am more impressed with the Pixel 2. I use apps to stack my images and love that it's not needed with the Pixel's HDR+. I mean, how cool is it that Google's computational algorithms can out-process a RAW file?!?

If I had three gripes, they'd be 1) Why the 1.5 crop on Portrait Mode; 2) to me Portrait Mode is worse at selecting edges in these examples than even my 7 Plus; and 3) I sure would love this with a second 2X lens. We'll see what the Pixel 3 has in store!

Buy a Pixel 2 XL and see if you like it. I love the camera and Ok ,Google but everything else my iPhone 7+ is still winning.

Don't bother listen to Android fanboys. They won't give you objective opinions. I cannot count how many Android users using sub-$200 phones telling me how great their phone is and iPhone is trash all the while never touched the latest iPhone or Android.

anticipation_of: I like a big phone and I want to switch away from iOS and back to Android with my next phone purchase. (I’ve grown frustrated with Apple’s “You can’t do that because we know better than you” design mentality.) Camera quality is the #1 most important feature to me in a phone, so I was very interested in the Pixel 2 XL. However, that screen is a dealbreaker for me; it’s just bad, totally unacceptable. What’s my best option then? The Note 8?

It will be a very long time until Android phones bothered to calibrate their screen like Apple do. You also won't find the same stability on Android as you would iOS although iOS 11 is the most buggy iOS I have ever used.

cosinaphile: i would love to review the studio scene against the iphone x .... but cannot

are theses sensors so bad then cannot be held to the scrutiny of your normal testing and review methodologies .... im ready to consider computational photographies
inroads on normal digital imaging in camera comparisons, but is dpr ready?

im especially interested in seeing how the claim "like a sensor 9 times the area" holds up... id love to see how my aging fuji x30 low light stands up to state of the art computational imaging in 2018 in your studio comparison scene

dumbing down and crippling your review features is not the way to go here ....just sayin

The Verge link in the article have 5 phones side-by-side. Go check it out

phoman: Well I played with it the other day and must tell that display on this phone is not calibrated at all, everything just looks so super over saturated, just ugly, unless there’s some settings that you can change otherwise this one fails for me

Pixel 2 have better screen than Pixel 2 XL but both are quite bad. It is either oversaturated or really dull. Way duller than calibrate LCD

noisephotographer, stop trying to pass your Nexus 5, 5X or whatnot as Pixel. Your sideloaded Google Camera APK is not the same as Pixel or Pixel 2 and you don't have an iPhone 8 or X to compare. Stop making up stories just to promote your own phone.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro is behind Pixel 2, iPhone 8/X, Galaxy/Note 8, U11+ and on par with LG V30

I think they said they need to rebuild the scene because old bulb wasn't consistent as it ages or something
