Cameracist: What about your own Windows Mobile 10, Microsoft?

In reply to:

Tim McClanahan: Incredibly unreliable, incredibly slow, but interesting when it works. Good thing it's free, though.

I'd assume they make it free to get some traction (virtually impossible with an app that is payable from day one) and will then add in-app purchases at some point, probably additional filters...

technotic: I get a "Too many people using Prisma - try later" message. Didn't they watch the "what if 30 million people download our app - we're not good" ad?

oh yes, clearly a disadvantage of server-based processing...

BeaverTerror: There have been a lot of articles recently on Chinese gear. I guess the days of China not being a place of innovation are over.

Motorola might now be Chinese owned but as far as I am aware a lot of the design and development is still happening in the US.

h2k: Would have liked to know more about weather sealing and shookproofing, which both also interest photography-minded mobile users.

Of course any information about the upcoming grip would be great as well.

I have actually been using the predecessor for the last few months, which also has a shatterproof screen...the iPhone I mostly use for app testing only which makes the cost of repair even more painful...I actually dropped it from my desk and it hit the edge of my chair with the screen....

Joel Benford: What is the focal length?

yep, it's mentioned in hardly any marketing material...but then they are all roughly the same anyway...I find it almost more relevant if they shoot at a native 16:9 format, not a big fan of that ;)

have no official information but it should be around 27/28mm equivalent

we'll cover that better in a full review...however I can say that I have dropped it at least a couple of times and no damage whatsoever...unfortunately I could not say the same about my dropped iPhone 6 s ;)

Achiron: The real life low light images (why didn't you provide one Lars?) shoe incredible performance at ISO 3200.

Because in my real life the camera did not use ISO 3200 once

Nobby2016: RRS or GITZO..... the best.. no need for LED and other gimmicks.

well, I'd argue the Golf seats more people, stores more luggage, has better fuel-economy and represents much better value for money :)

Prixnobeldefoot: would be better if the captions weren't on the picture, it's like cropping the image.

guest2015: i have a few moto phones 2015 E and G. They are both ok while the batteries are still new. I also have a 2 year old samsung S3. Its battery life is very short. I can buy a new battery and replace it for ~$10+. Can't replace motorola batteries. Users will have to ship phones to motorola for very expensive battery replacement service, if it's even possible in the new models. I'm not even sure how G battery can be replaced. There are no screws, completely sealed. Because of non-replaceable battery i'll look into other brands for my next phone. I like my G camera most of the time in day light, but non-replaceable battery is a deal breaker.

there are very few high.end phones these days that allow swapping batteries...LG is your best bet.

kobakokh: ZTE is not just chinese brand, about 63% of parts in any mobile phones in the world are made by ZTE, its a largest mobile phones and parts manufacturer in the world...

I don't know about smartphone components but certainly make a lot of mobile communication infrastructure, competing with Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens and the like...and Huawei of course

In reply to:

noflashplease: ZTE is the "other" Chinese brand. You know, the one that isn't being sold at Leica stores.

there are quite a few of those :)

happypoppeye: So the rescued film project doesn't have the resources to rescue film ...probably should have thought of that before creating the project.

well, seems they are finding ways to get it developed, deserves kudos in my book...

Emacs23: I have S7 and the camera is wonderful. But the phone itself is crap-crap-crap: still lagging (samsung veterans say it was even worse in previous models), full of low quality apps like facebook or skype. Cannot recommend it to anyone. Avoid samsung.

it's usually the manufacturer or carrier specific apps that you can't uninstall...I have never seen a device that would not let you uninstall Facebook or Skype, even when pre-installed

In reply to:

Digital Suicide: They can make even octa-cam system, I'm staying on single lens cameraphone. Hopefully not all of the makers will follow this ridiculousness.

Dual cams can have real benefits. Apart from the simply having two focal lengths as mentioned above imho the most interesting application is merging exposures for better detail and less noise...Huawei has done it on the P9...would be great to see an Apple approach to this topic.

If you don't need/want Facebook or Skype just deinstall and that's that :)
