ElioX, 10 Sep 2021Dude, this is a product. You can like it or f# off. I think... moreFor me the most important part of the phone is the processor ! Why ? The modem use by the processor is very important ! Napdragon processors are perhaps the best in term of modem !

I imported this because I thought the assistant features were important to me. But Google being the absolute blockheads they are blocked most of the assistant features in my region, including call screening and hold for me. I didn't think I'd get screwed over this hard.

"Aside from not using a higher refresh rate to enhance the experience,..."

How does higher refresh rate enhance the experience? All it ever does is only make the scrolling animation smoother (are you really endlessly scrolling your phone all the time?) and only kill battery life. I'd just stay at 60Hz all the time since I don't scroll my phone all the time.

ElioX, 13 Sep 2021Nobody needs telephoto all the time. You need it ONLY in sp... moreNobody needs ultra-wide all the time. That's why camera manufacturers like Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc usually don't offer ultra-wide angle kit lenses. Ultra-wide angle cameras don't capture what your eyes can't see. Actually, you can replace an ultra-wide angle or wide-angle camera with a tele camera by stitching multiple photos together. This is called the brenizer method.
So you can get an ultra-wide angle field of view with a tele camera, but you can't get the details of a tele camera with an ultra-wide angle camera.

Erceylan, 12 Sep 2021Well you are just talking about yourself here. Telephoto Le... moreYeah. That is why pixel went with 16MP UWA camera. All others are just doing 12 or 8 MP as if it is not important. And for most cases, those cameras are just "extra numbers to look cool" rather than "useful enough cameras" as in pixel. I dont need to have a 5MP macro or 2MP depth cameras. Macro cameras are quite cheap to buy and even when you use your regular WA cameras to shoot something, if you crop that photo (i.e. digitally zoom in), it is still more quality photo than a 5MP sh!tty macro camera.

So all in all, it is better to have "what you need" with enough place to have 4500+mAh battery in a small chassis than to have 4 redundant cameras that I will not use and have worse and worse qualities.

Erceylan, 12 Sep 2021Well you are just talking about yourself here. Telephoto Le... moreNobody needs telephoto all the time. You need it ONLY in special places where you need to photo something that is too far away that you cannot see with your eyes. And only 0.01% of the cases you HAVE TO see it. Otherwise it is just "interesting". I wouldn't like to have extra 9gr camera that uses up 400mAh of battery place that is used for 0.01% of the cases

The moment Pixel's "A" series of phones get wireless charging, that's when I'm immediately going to get one of these phones.

Fanboy of All brands, 09 Sep 2021Say that to the Iphone 12 and Mi 11. Or even Sharp Aquos R6Indeed, Apple and iPhone 12 users should be ashamed lol... But then again Mi11 and other brands do not market or show of on their photography capabilities such as Google does for pixel.

ElioX, 09 Sep 2021It is very easy to compensate. Telephoto is the least used ... moreWell you are just talking about yourself here. Telephoto Lens are a huuuuge help at times and provide very good quality when compared to main lens (talking about A72 specifically for main and telephoto comparison). No after market clip on lens can match their quality, also who keeps those with them all the time?
A good Ultra wide lens of 12mp or above is a must I say. Quality from 8mp ultra wide is extremely bad.

Everyone knows that even with cheaper (not "worst" but cheaper) hardware with they can make 1000$+ devices cry with half of that cost ;)

Anonymous, 10 Sep 2021It should be have come up with Snapdragon 778G or 780G Hahaha why not sd888 or sd898 😂😂 maybe even some imaginary sd999

My friends own the device and it is still one of the best there is (even though it is a midrange device). If you don't own the device I would advise you to check out some reviews around. Some manufacturers do smoothen the photos to get rid of them but it also removes details from the photos. But it all can be arranged in post-processing. What you cannot do though, is turn bad picture to good

The camera quality is simply terrible at best. The night shots are horrendous. Lack of detail and full of noise.
