Oneplus provides performance than Samsung with exynos. But i think they are better as flagship killers, not flagships.

Then suddenly they decided to be another flagship making company.
I mean, Look, Xiomi is good at making flagship killers at decent price tag. They have learned where to cut the corners.
To be honest ... even S20FE is better in this regards than OnePlus.

Just want to take a moment to express my gratitude to @Prasad for making the effort of producing a piece *reporting on* thing X (in this case the new camera software feature) by putting it in context, instead of just *reporting what the Marketing material says* about thing X (as is sadly all too common on such tech news sites). Thanks, @Prasad!

Hasselblad is helping itself get a bad name.... Instead of helping oneplus sell more.

I never heard of hasselblad earlier, but now i know it is group of people with crook minds ...

I couldn't help but think that I can achieve a similar result from using Moment's Anamorphic mobile lens. After all, it doesn't crop the camera sensor itself in the first place.

Oh man, the og Xpan was so unique and something I desired so much. This just seems sad. Not just bad, but sad.

MagicMonkeyBoy, 18 Sep 2021Really like oneplus for teaming up with Hasselblad. And ... moreAnd yet those 8k and 108 MP cameras in photos and videos isn't as consistent as Iphone in HDR, focus, colours and white balance. To most people, those 4 are more important than details and sharpness. Especially in video lowlight, Androids fall behind a lot in stabilisation

Drop the stupid branding and marketing and lower the price of the god damn phone oppo

Most of the phones these days have a 20 or 21 : 9 as pect ratio.
Just shoot in fullscreen mode and apply filters.
Seriously, the efforts by OnePlus in past 3 years have been.... confounding.... to say the least.
From Flagship Killers to Wanna be Flagships.... OnePlus phones have come a long way... not all positive.

They need to fix their other phones that were promised updates but have been broken for months on end. As far as I'm concerned, OnePlus is officially off of the list of phone brands I will buy from in the future. It's like after they got in with TMobile, they just stopped caring about the people who have been here since the beginning, buying their phones from them directly.

Really like oneplus for teaming up with Hasselblad.

And oppo with Kodak.

See how the world of Android gives the user the best cameras...

Thing is. Androids always do better than iPhones for camera quality. In everyway.

For Apple to even think about 8k. They need to increase there camera MP to at least 33MP.

Another thing with Apple. Is due to the limitation of 12mp. When zooming in on a picture or cropping the resolution is appauling compared to a 108mp camera for example. Apple look good until you crop in and start losing loads of detail. The limitations of 12mp.

So... With Team Droid and major exceptional camera specialists such as Kodak and Hasselblad... Team Droid can't go too far wrong... One up on Apple there...
