iPhone vs Samsung

A friend of mine recently was showing off some pix he took while on vacation with his Samsung Galaxy Note9. I must say, they looked stunning. Unrivaled.

I must confess that I have not tried many different test shots to compare. I only looked at the few shots he happened to have had taken.

I should add some disclaimers right away so that I am not misunderstood:

  1. I don’t use my iPhone as my primary Photography Device
  2. I take a lot of pix with my iPhone
  3. My reason for choosing to stick to the iPhone, and over all App eco-system, goes far beyond a single feature
  4. I am absolutely un-offended by your decision to select a device that is not from the Apple family
    1. While I like being able to leverage the vary many services of the Apple eco-system, I do look forward to the opportunity to be able to use those feature in a non-platform-binding way
  5. Overall, both brand have a huge following. That is not an accident. They both have a lot to offer.

Good News / Bad News for my Smart Phone

I was starting to get worried that I would not be able to use my phone (that I’ve barely had for 3 and a half year) much longer. It has been my goal to use the smart phone for 5 years. So far, I have been able to use them for about 4 and a half in the past.

The good news – the device is just fine and the latest OS, v11.3, is working smoothly (so far).

So, the bad news is not so much about the device (i.e., hardware) but the content I’ve piled on it. More specifically – my 200K+ pix.
