YUKI93, 19 Mar 2019No, it's NOT the megapixel I'm actually talking about.No duh. You said sensor. And I responded as such.
My final response about the mp still was referring to the differences in sensors associated with the 12, 48, 60, and 100mp sensors

Higher MP camera in trade for lower camera sensor? No thank you, I'll stick to DLSR or mirrorless camera.

As for smartphones, it's still hard to beat the good old Nokia 808 PureView, the Nokia Lumia 1020 and also the Panasonic Lumix CM1.

They all want to trickle the technology. It's like every company is becoming Apple.

I'm sure you can push a little more than 16mp with that one inch sensor. Though I understand your stance but most would prefer a little more resolution on the balance.

And it's true. The sad part is even though everyone kind of pushes the thin slabs that most people would completely use a thicker phone. Especially after using the camera and realizing how much longer the battery lasts.
Yet everyone thinks they want the thinner phone. If phones were made thinker with bigger battery's and cameras and maybe other unique designs and features again they would be selling just as well and people would like them better.

I lied. They might sell a little less because people would actually hold onto them a little longer.
The companies are all just stringing us along at this point. Not just Apple. Sony, Google, LG, even somewhat huawei, and Samsung too. They all are. They used to offer better tech.

Nobody offers good enough hardware or software support to justify these prices. It's corporate greed. And for the love of God let's not get into ios updates or that pixel recently claimed to support for longer because it's very weak and half baked updates.

Anonymous, 16 Mar 2019Manual mode > iso250 > shutter 2s > hdr on :) Most phones don't work with hdr in manual. To some extent but not like the auto mode unfortunately. If course that also has to do with shutter speed too which is usually set a lot slower when set manually

I think a lot of the times just using higher megapixels is a marketing ploy. Most people who buy phones don't know much about what's in them, just keywords and what's higher is better. But I do believe Smartphones are very disruptive tech and always have been. They wiped out the disposable camera market and have hit the small camera market by quite a fair amount too. They won't hit the DSLR market any time soon, or ever. But they could next go for the compact camera market. A bigger sensor, even if it's just twice the size of what our sensors are now would grant a huge level of detail. Phones are all practically the same now, so a company that comes out with a phone that isn't too much thicker than the rest of the phones out there but has a sensor that's 2/3x bigger could dominate many markets.

I sometimes feel 12MP is too little, especially either the tiny sensor and mediocre lenses. They could push the sensor to 12inch. Also someone needs to have a smartphone sensor with (Dual or Triple) Native ISO of upto ISO5000 (like the IMX607).

Also smartphone sensors should have better glass. Something with much greater resolving power.

The periscope zoom on the P30 Pro seems like a great idea. I am not sure how it would handle low light though.

Or, let's stop bining pixels together and leaving the whole resolution alone.
Photos from a Mate 20 Pro have less details than a photo from a HTC One M9.
In daylight, there is no point of using a denoise algorhytm as extreme as this.
They should leave the denoise up to the user, or just add a denoise mode.
Or just keep it to night mode only.

Lumia 1020 and 808 are still unrivaled to this day in terms of details in daylight.

I personally don't have problem with a little thicker phone in order to fit an 1 inch sensor, in 16mp and big pixels. Combining zoom and wide lenses would be the absolute partner for vacations...

Just negative brands are market leaders doesn't mean that what they offer is the only features that are sought after.

And to just make up for yourself that the only reason device with 48mp are only sought out for the device and not the camera is ridiculous. Clearly many people want the device specifically for that camera and maybe other features or the price.

And what is needed is a good balance of better resolution and sensor size. Mega pixel count still has its use. Sometimes more noise depending on tech, software, and what not. But also much more resolved and fine natural detail.
A larger sensor with large but still good sized pixels well give better results in more scenarios

Mainly the only difference in detail I see between the two is that there seemed to be a little less noise reduction. Not really more detail

I wish they would focused on designing a bigger sensor instead of just trying to reach a higher mp count, I also disagree with the statement about higher mp being in demand, its not so much that its in demand, its that certain brands in select market are in high demand, these devices are also flagships in their respective markets and carry high end components, and sell well regardlesss of having 50mp sensors on the back, it just so happens that the high end market has these cameras, so the demand is not necessarily for the camera but for the device if that makes sense, look at apple and samsung for example, they only have 12mp cameras, yet they are still market leading often, if you stuck a 100mp camera on the back i doubt it would sell more, just a marketing gimmick really
