    And probably most people will take photos with flash withcameras or phones. So I don't see dark or night mode as an issue.
    I regularly use night mode on Huawei P20 Pro to improve low light images and also problematic daylight images.

    It’s over Apple going home buttonless this year to simplify the product category.

    I am sure that for Bluetooth there is only one Pro to list. But there are a few (and indeed one very serious) Cons.

    Who see's night mode as an issue? Gotta be honest, I'm not really sure what point you're making.

    Sorry. I misread. It was the poster you were replying to that was being negative.

    A flash is used to alter the picture and the photographer can make the picture according to his/her vision. But you can say when the flash fires the camera captures a true-to-life scene. Night sight is what the software sees.

    More than you may expect: recent iPhones already killed the compact camera market as the gap between the two is getting smaller every year.
    Many picture enthusiasts, myself included, already replaced their compact camera with the iPhone and are not regretting it.
    I did some amazing shots with my 7 Plus and I look forward to see Apple introducing features such as 3x optical zoom, wider sensor and improved low lights capabilities to further bridge the gap with compact cameras.

    Just hope that the next premium iPhone with 3 lenses will look better than the one rendered a few days ago...

    That’s the render we’re going with? That has to be the worst interpretation of a 3-camera system on a phone.

    I was mainly referring to the night sight with the one lens comment

    Man, looking at this mockup I can't help but think other companies have been better at "Apple design" than Apple themselves lately. Don't get me started on the pricing.

    That’s not an apple design. It’s an alleged Apple design.

    I personally think the hardware race is close to over. Machine learning technology is much better and the future. The Pixel phones photos in low light are amazing. No amount of additional lenses in an iPhone can compete with machine learning technology.

    I know the pixel 3 night mode is good but this picture seems silly.

    That is one ugly phone. UGLY. They have to loose the camera bump once and for all.

    It makes me somewhat uncomfortable when I look at it, but it is not making me terrified.


    That is what the phobia means, right? Not just slight discomfort?

    If you had issues with headphone plugs getting damaged, what was stopping you using Bluetooth headphones?

    Except one lens doesn’t do 3D depth sensing whic is what apple is aiming for.

    Personally I'm holding out for the compound eye edition. 600+ cameras on an iPhone the size of a quarter.

    Maybe because they copy Apple’s design in advance, their HuaJoni drives 16 Bentley’s instead of 8 and they don’t charge their mice upside down. And don’t let themselves be distracted by their sexuality or equal rights for non-billionaires.

    Bokeh seems to overblur some Apple backgrounds, leading to binary simplism

    They stopped working*. But to the question of headphone plugs, I actually really would contend that the increasing size of phones has made wired headphones unsustainable for a lot of front pocket users.

    *My BeatsX last only about 3 to 4 month before they throw errors (won't turn on or won't connect or the remote controls changing the volume all by themselves), which becomes less funny after the warranty period is over. Many people suggest that sweat is what might be killing them. My Jaybird's lasted about a year until the remote control stopped registering clicks (which made it impossible to pair them). The ones before that failed after a similar period.

    Do I need to draw you a picture?

    Just put anything long enough, maybe half a foot/15 cm long (eg, a table knife), into your front pants pocket and sit down on a chair to understand the bending problem.
