The quality of the pictures is pretty poor for a supposed 108 mp.

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2019Time to process 100MP photo has nothing to do with focus. You ... more12mp with dual pixel autofocus is best at the moment. they make 48mp+ to make night photos. try to take sharp picture of the subject in motion - good luck.

Whackcar, 25 Sep 2019You're wrong. Phone sizes haven't truly increased in the last 5 ... moreBack in the day, phones with 5.5 inch 16:9 displays were considered humongous and were called Phablets. The term phablets slowly eroded as the size became the norm. Still, it's disingenuous to call this phone a tablet as it's barely larger than regular Galaxy S10 and far smaller than a tablet. As you pointed out, the diagonal measurement of wrap-around display makes it look much bigger than it actually is.

Impressive, and I can see, some people having severe pain, iPhone is the biggest copier of trends, Chinese start making new products and apple sits on the side and continues to monitor till the time that trend gets mature, then they call it innovation by Apple, thumbs up to Chinese manufacturers, be it dual cam, triple cam, full-screen displays, these all started from Chinese manufacturers, but some idiots can't bear it.

wiemar, 25 Sep 2019100mp and lowest autofocus :D you can make cofe when you take photoTime to process 100MP photo has nothing to do with focus.
You cannot expect a device to process 100MP as fast as another is processing 12MP photo.

Did you know sports cameras have less than 30MP, while cameras used for studio have more than 40?

More MP = less speed .....

Sam, 25 Sep 2019I will like to ask a question. Why make 48, 43, 64, 66, 108 mp s... moreIMO, Quad Bayer Sensors fo mobile were still not very mature, this is one reason why major phone manufacturers won't equip their flagship phones with these yet even though they're the ones producing the sensors themselves. If you want to know why quad bayers with overkill megapixel sensor exist, you should also learn how colors were represented in a regular bayer filter having basic RGB as an example. This video would give you basic understanding of such matter:

https://youtu.be/ss8_qRkwG5I?t=507

Basically, more small pixels of each color in RGB distributed evenly in a small sensor would, in theory, produce the most optimal color representation of the object being captured. More RGB values can be captured in a very small area while bigger photosites would mean that (for example) a red color might be skewed because the part of the object that should be red, falls on the pixels with only Green and Blue because each color occupies lots of space (bigger photosites).

Watch the video, I svck on explaining. lol.

You can also learn more if your search about Fuji's X-Trans filter and as to why they refuse to use Bayer filter in their own camera.

1450EUR iPhone 11 Pro Max got 3 camera too (ironic)

Untill i see a smartphone capable of Hubble telescope photography i am not interested no matter the brand.

Sam, 25 Sep 2019I will like to ask a question. Why make 48, 43, 64, 66, 108 mp s... moreQuadbayer sensor will give more DR, since for a group of 4 pixels two of them will have different exposure compared to the other two.

This is the only advantage of a 108MP 1/1.33" over a 27MP 1/1.33" for example.
Since it is Quadbayer/Tetracell, it wont give you details of native 108MP.
Also there is still a gap between pixels after binning, you they still grap less light than single pixel of same size.

100mp and lowest autofocus :D you can make cofe when you take photo

Xiaomi and Asus are killing it this year.

Sam, 25 Sep 2019I will like to ask a question. Why make 48, 43, 64, 66, 108 mp s... moreThere have already been some phones like that.

HTC 10 had a 1.55um 12MP OIS sensor back in 2016 (it was pretty damn good, but didn't get much attention)
HTC One M7 had a 2.0um 4MP OIS sensor way back in 2013 (the low resolution made it look worse than competition which had 8/13 MP at the time)

This reminds me how innovative & progressive HTC was... I wish they'd find their way back into the game. They are a good brand with a lot of potential...

Back of the phone looks beautiful.

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2019Nokia 808 did not have Quad Bayer sensor. That sensor was made ... moreThat's what I said. Regular Bayer. With 1,4m Pixel size. So full res pics are superior to those tiny pixel quad Bayer pics.
