"My Nexus 5x (which is NOT bootlooping) shares the same camera as Nexus 6P and makes really really great shots for phone around $200."

Interesting thread.

I've always loved +HTC​'s Android skins.

Still a beast in low light.

Sad.

Apple should've reinforced the wire with something more durable as possibly millions of people will use the included dongle to listen to audio which they previously used to listen to using the headphone jack.

Or maybe they shouldn't have removed the jack in the first place.  ¯\(ツ)/¯

This is really awesome, my Nexus 5X can shoot an HDR+ faster in Camera NX faster than a regular image capture on the default Google Camera app.

I'm still not entirely sure how much the app sacrifices quality for speed, but I will test that. I still think it's worth trying out.

Material Design was one of the reasons I loved switching back to Android from Windows Phone. Going to miss it. 😢
Blurred backgrounds with translucent cards? Bottom navigation bar? I have been saying this for a very long time: Google is slowly inching their way towards Apple's iOS guidelines.

I feel like Material Design's "paper-like" presence will slowly vanish in favor of blurred/translucency. We'll definitely see more of this design language spread across Google apps in the near future. Heck, I wouldn't mind some blur effects with translucent cards for Google Play Music. I think that would be a perfect design choice for a music app.

Wouldn't it be so amazing that the next BETA of Android 7.1 comes with both a night mode and fingerprint gestures?

> Having the bulk of your error come from hue and chrominance instead of luminance is not a good way to go, and I'd say that the Pixel XL misses the mark on greyscale accuracy in its sRGB mode.

> It's enough of a problem that I don't enjoy the Pixel XL's display because I'm used to devices like the OnePlus 3 and iPhone 7 which have accurate greyscale and color rendering.

> While this issue is pretty minor, I’m concerned by how blurry the left edge appears in both of the Pixel’s photos, an issue that does not show up in the 6P’s images.

> Both Matt and I have noticed that cellular reception on the Pixel XL is not very good. In particular, Matt was unable to achieve our target signal strength of -90dBm or better in the same area where he tests all other LTE devices. The best signal he was able to achieve was -100dBm (outdoors). Because we're dealing with a logarithmic scale, the difference in transmission power is not 10% like you might imagine based on the numbers, it's ten times the power.

> In the end, the Pixel XL is a decent enough phone, but it is not the ultimate Android phone that people were likely hoping for. It fails to stand out in a crowded market and cannot claim to be the best in any single category; at best it is a jack of all trades. This is a serious problem for a phone that is positioned as and priced like a flagship phone.
