Sdaniella: so, who are they sourcing their smartphone screens?

samsung or LG?
or others (who supplies POLED?)

Those same bloggers said the same stuff about the V30 display. I had an LG phone with a POLED screen and the grain was only visible when looking at a blank white screen otherwise unnoticeable.

On article OnePlus 5 camera review (90 comments in total)

I think that any smartphone review should consider user privacy as in:

...

Chris Moore, the owner of a UK-based security and tech blog, recently published an article demonstrating that OnePlus has been gathering his personal information and transmitting them without his permission. He noticed an unfamiliar domain while completing the SANS Holiday Hack Challenge and decided to further examine it. He found that the domain – open.oneplus.net – had essentially been collecting his private device and user data and transmitting them to an Amazon AWS instance, all without his permission.

The data that OnePlus is accessing ranges from device information like the phone’s IMEI, serial number, cellular number, MAC address, mobile network name, IMSI prefix, and wireless network ESSID and BSSID to user data like reboot, charging, screen timestamps as well as application timestamps.

Mike CH: Sponsored content? On a review site?

Really?

This site has very few ads, relative to many others. It could be much worse, stop bitching and enjoy the site.

Really?

The other option would be a subscription fee. Which would you prefer? At least it is clearly labeled "sponsored" as opposed to many other sites.

Hopefully this will nudge Olympus out of their stupor!

"Absolutely, positively never try this yourself. By all accounts, this flight was highly illegal and DPReview in no way condones this activity."

And yet by giving them the publicity they are seeking, you are in fact condoning this flight.

On article Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Review (565 comments in total)

@Jeff
I was surprised no raw converter in camera. My understanding from manual was that if you shoot raw and want to xfer pics to phone the camera will make a jpg. Can you confirm if this is true?

Cheezr: Just a point, reviewers are easily wowed.

I was referring to the sentence: "Even without OIS, when the original Pixel and Pixel XL came out, the phones' exceptional camera performance wowed reviewers."

PaddyC: So does this mean the i-1 and all the various films that Impossible offered are done?
(note that I don't particularly care but was always intrigued). I might actually pop for the OneStep.

the company that owns the impossible project bought the company that owned the polaroid rights and so the impossible project is now polaroid (sort of).

In reply to:

(unknown member): Have been using CR for many years for everything from cars to computers. They are truly independent since they do not receive any corporate funding nor do they accept any advertising. In many ways this is perhaps one of the last best ways to gauge a product and have insight into testing methodology. They also purchase all the items they test. Compared to this web site for example, they are far more likely to be truly independent. If they say there's a problem with this device, I would trust their view.

@ybizzle sounds like CR is in the same boat as ILC camera manufacturers, doesn't it? Also DPreview for that matter.

Do "Pro's" really use the camera strap that comes in the box?
Enquiring minds want to know.
