    now before saying it just scaled-up, useless, fake etc.
    did u guys really compare the images ? like pixel3 to few years older phone
    until now, the image always got some improvement on newer phone, no?

    now if we look at that P30 pro moon-shot, even many said it using software ai etc.
    but that 40mp isnt just scale-up, well at least from what i see based https://www.dxomark.com/huawei-p30-pro-camera-review/

    for the phone price that keep going up, in tech-world i think we used to how things going so expensive and still sold well ... apple, nvidia, intel etc.
    plus now days in most country, either the phone-maker or telecom-provider giving trade-in-plan ... which make "illusion" to many people think new-phone price not that high
    Not necessary i am okay with the price, i am agree that current high-end model price is already in "dumb"-range

    Still not sure why companies were releasing phones with anything other than UFS3.0 after the OnePlus 7's.

    It is truly a game changer for anyone who moved files around from and onto their mobile devices.

    Actually taking advantage my triple SSD raid 0 for storage!!

    It is entirely lossy without a much larger lense to give enough light strength.

    my iphone 6s and 2018 ipad have no such options for shutter time that I aware of.. But I do get that oil painting effect as I get same effect on my TCL tv though I call it the water color effect and I see it in some photos on my phone when there upclose

    smartphones = jack of all trades, but shitty at all trades, with how expensive they seem to be getting you would think that they would got better then shitty at all trades.:D

    You may have to try downloading a separate app that can override them. Most default camera apps (for iOS or Android) don't let you change these things, because they're configured for ease-of-use rather than quality. Since 99.9% of people aren't going to use a tripod with their phone or tablet and don't know enough about configuring exposure, increasing the shutter time to allow for a lower ISO would just make everyone's photos blurry. A grainy but sharp photo is better than a clean but blurry photo.
    Side note - if you do find an app that can increase shutter time, you should notice the frame rate of the camera's live view will drop, which is normal. If you've ever used a webcam in a dark scene and notice the frame rate of the camera drops, that usually means the ISO is maxed out and the camera is increasing the shutter time to get in more light. So at that point you're basically getting the worst of both worlds - a grainy image and motion blur lol. A lot of cheap Android phones are prone to this too.

    But yeah, a smartphone camera is, in most cases, good enough to capture a moment very quickly, as long as you're in a bright area. But if you care at all about quality, even a cheap point-and-shoot camera is a better option.

    I'd much rather see phone cameras sacrifice pixel numbers for larger pixels, and not some gimmick like Tetracell. Larger sensors have a lot of benefits including the ability to blur the background with shallow depth-of-field, they exhibit less noise in low light situations and the ability to capture a wider dynamic range between the brightest and darkest areas of the image. This sensor has a pixel size of 0.8μm. I know its like comparing apples to oranges but the Canon 1DX Mk.2 has a 20.2 megapixel sensor with each pixel being 6.5μm.

    "Being the first mobile image sensor to adopt a large 1/1.33-inch size, the HMX can absorb more light in low-lit settings than smaller sensors and its pixel-merging Tetracell technology allows the sensor to imitate big-pixel sensors, producing brighter 27Mp images."

    Thats impossible, even 4/3 sensor is way too big for a mobile phone.
    Unless you want something budging like that Nokia had.

    So completely pointless in a phone with tiny ass sensor and no good optics to resolve with. I'd rather they work on a low mpx sensor and improved light capturing efficiency. Great marketing move though mass consumer with no knowledge will lap this up.
