[deleted post]this is real?

    And what phone up to 600 do you recommend? (camera a priority with good telephoto)

          Anonymous, 13 Oct 2022Mi11 ultra has better camera and cost less than pixel 7 pro... moreBecause pixels receive 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security updates.
          And Xiaomi...
          Xiaomi will become competitive, as soon as they realise that customers start to realise why their phones are so "cheap"...

            blue, 13 Oct 2022Apple is using Snapdragon processor? In what universe?Apples is using Qualcomms 5G modem on iphones from iphone 12 till today, the same one that exists on Snapdragon devices.

            For example the A16 bionic on Iphone 14pro/max has the Qualcomm's X65 5G modem.

              blue, 13 Oct 2022This is not a problem of the chipset, but of software. Tens... moreIf you werent replying as a fanboy, you would know that one of the reasons Google chose Samsung instead of Qualcomm for their chip, is the lower cost, exactly like Exynos ones on Europe.

              Like it or not, Snapdragon SoC have been the superior chips since Snap810/820 era, but they cost more.

              As for the results themselves, do yourself a favor and check Gsmarenas synthetic benchmarks, where Gsmarena calls the results ''underwhelming''.

                [deleted post]Yet praises Pixels and Samsung phones for a lot of things (usually photography related). Yet somehow he's "Apple shill" or something. By you all dfinition, anyone that ever mentions Apple in any way is "paid by Apple".

                  77, 13 Oct 2022Snapdragon banned apple using 5g modem, even 5g patents was... moreYou're absolutely clueless. iPhones use 5G modems from Qualcomm, X60 and X70 series. So, how can they be banned from using 5G and use 5G at the same time? LOL?

                    blue, 13 Oct 2022Apple is using Snapdragon processor? In what universe?That person is living in an alternative universe where Apple probably uses android and snapdragon 🤷🏻‍♂️

                          There's an interesting comparison of pixel 7 zoomed images here
                          https://www.androidauthority.com/google-pixel-7-pro-telephoto-zoom-3219171/

                          The author presents 1:1 crops and compares pixel 7 pro with pixel 6 pro (in the same situation), and compares between pixel 7 pro and pixel 7.

                          It helped me set my expectations...

                            I'm thinking of doing something really stupid... going the other extreme from iPhone and buying Pixel 7 Pro. But I need to wait for the full review because all the data is pretty much useless in this preliminary review. I need to see that photo with the snail on grass, that's my favorite reference point for camera quality. As well as battery life, though Mrwhostheboss said battery life is very good. But again, I need GSMArena's battery metric.

                              Benne , 13 Oct 2022I will not buy this pixel 7 ! Only because of the use of th... moreApple is NOT using Snapdragon chipset in any iPhone. Unless if you meant Qualcomm's 5G modem, in which case you should make it more clear.

                                notafanboy, 13 Oct 2022Are you delusional or just ill informed? The Pixel 6 series... moreMrwhostheboss gave the Pixel 6 the phone of the year award back in 2021, same year that most people had call/wifi issues and returned their phones due to being unusable.

                                But yeah,what do we know, you guys know better. Like all of you downvoting us for pointing out how weak the benchmarks and Tensor are, even though gsmarena confirms these....

                                    "Ai is not flawless but in my experience the pros vastly overweigh the cons in most scenarios"

                                    I feel like these two sentences perfectly summarise what I feel about ML-based demosaicing algorithms - False patterns/details, or any artifacts in this regard, will be only a problem when the user is able to perceive it. For instance, DeepPRIME occasionally produces random wrinkles out of extremely noisy images - this is indeed an issue and can be considered as a downside because it's quite easily observable, the same goes for colourful Quad Bayer worms that make the entire image look very unnatural when you zoom in. Not so much for any "potential" detail distortion introduced in Apple's ProRAW that would still look a lot better than artifacts in a pure Quad Bayer RAW.

                                      Mi11 ultra has better camera and cost less than pixel 7 pro. Why buy latter when former is purchasable?
