wish someone would sell this in the retail market.  it's cheaper than the nord and i'm ok with the specs.

^ + killer feature of the Pixel phones is unlimited storage on Google Photos. A friend uses it to store all his stuff including videos and has terabytes of data in there. As might be expected search is big brother Google's best feature. You can search for a name, date, or place and it'll find all your pictures/videos relevant to the search.

LG Wing Teardown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxGI8r8vAFk

i just upgraded from a 4 year old LG V20 (which will live out the rest of its days as a remote control + video caster) but I want this phone so bad now. Surprisingly repairable with only minimal glue for the rear cover.

^ Has Motorola improved  software update support for their phones? I used to own the original Moto G and it had like, two updates and that was it.

I'm fine not having feature updates but security fixes are a must since I do online purchases and banking on my phone now.

^they're still not up there with the best, but they've been doing OK I guess. 

even their G series is able to get at least an OS update

Moto G4 Plus ships with Android 6.0.1 and gets Android 8.0 (doesn't get 8.1 though)
Moto G5 Plus ships with Android 7.0 and gets Android 8.1
Moto G5S Plus ships with Android 7.1 and gets Android 8.1
Moto G6 Plus ships with Android 8.0 and gets Android 9.0
Moto G7 Plus ships with Android 9.0 and gets Android 10

Sharp introduces new phone with a camera sensor more or less equivalent to what you'd get in a dedicated point-and-shoot:

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/05/sharp-aquos-phone-has-a-massive-1-inch-camera-sensor/



Quote
The rest of the specs look pretty good, too. The phone comes with Android 11, a Snapdragon 888 SoC, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 5000 mAh battery, a microSD slot, a headphone jack, and a USB-C port.

The display is a Sharp-made OLED with a whopping 240 Hz refresh rate. Sharp has made 240 Hz displays before, but it says this one is the "world's first" display to have a dynamic refresh rate that goes from 1 Hz to 240 Hz, depending on the content.

I think the Xiaomi 11 Ultra also uses a 1" Sony Sensor

^ Nope. Mi11 Ultra uses a 1/1.12" (0.89") Samsung ISOCELL sensor.

Branded?

Never heard of infinix, itel, Techno Pova, Doogee, Povoir, Realme - who the heck makes these phones! Their not even here in china but the Realme.

Shady benchmark shenanigans by OnePlus?

OnePlus admits to throttling 300 popular apps with recent update | Ars Technica

Power management sounds like a nice feature, but seems especially shady since they rolled out it out *after* reviewers have already benchmarked their phone. Now end users are getting as much as 75-85% lower performance than what reviews indicated.

Another Android phone manufacturer caught cheating benchmarks....

On the bright side, OnePlus has what I think is the longest Android update support coverage for their phones.

Thinking of switching my Nokia 6.1(2018) from AndroidOne to LineageOS 18.
Haven't been getting Android security updates anymore so I guess that's it for the OS on this phone.
