  • "KEN ROCKWELL USES THIS. (enough said)"

    You don't say? Then, it must be a thousand times better than even Noise Ninja / Lightroom / etc. on the desktop!!11!!!One!!

  • "KEN ROCKWELL USES THIS. (enough said)"

    Thanks, found his review at http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/athentech/perfectly-clear.htm - will check it out.

  • Another useless filter app. I wish Android app developers would try to beat Photo Mate R2's (for example color) noise reduction algorithms instead of writing flashy (but, for serious shooters,...

  • "From here, I wonder what they can do with bracketing."

    Don't expect much from on-phone stitchers. Most? all? of them produce awful results unless you shoot from a tripod (or another...

  • "Who cares how many photo-filter apps there are, those are used to hide poor image quality more than anything else. What a photographer should care about is maximal image quality and a fast camera...

  • "Operation [of the 808] was not slow, at least not on the camera side."

    Exactly. The 808's own camera app isn't slow. As opposed to that of the 1020.

  • "I hope you could do more review on the HDR mode on its speed, dynamic range, and noise that I could compare it to my Nexus5."

    Just don't forget that it doesn't magically expand the DR - after...

  • (continued from above)

    This, as always, only applies to Snapdragon 805-based Note4's. On Exynos devices you won't see much (if any) difference in image quality.

    I'll publish several example shots...

  • "Have you tried the Google Camera App on the Note 4. Does HDR+ make a difference in low light on that device as well?"

    I don't really recommend the HDR mode of the Google app on the Note4. It...

  • "Hoping to review it soon. I have used it but not too extensively."

    Just don't forget to shoot with near-RAW-capable apps. The output of the stock Camera app is a disgrace when there's sufficient...

  • "That nexus6 sample, ISO 40, with all the pine tree needles blurred into incomprehensible mush? I cry I little inside."

    Yup, awful. This is why one absolutely must use RAW's or at least decent...

  • "- But can not make a salable Phone"

    If you meant SONY, well, they've been shooting themselves in their leg by constantly churning out flagships instead of keeping to a one-year cycle, as do...

  • He may be referring to the Note4? It's the most asked-for phone at DxO too.

    BTW, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 beat the Nexus 6 in PhoneArena's blind camera comparison (new...

  • "And this is not quite so necessary for larger formats most of the time."

    While I agree MILC / DSLR manufacturers don't tend to apply THAT much NR / sharpening (as they target, on the whole, more...

  • "RAW is _more_ important for small sensors because gaining better control over the noise reduction/sharpening equation can make all the difference in the world."

    Exactly - phone manufacturers tend...

  • "it doesn't make sensor for me to use raw - raw from a mediocre tiny sensor, what gives?"

    Just take a look at these shots (and also DPR's comments: "Strong sharpening in combination with some...

  • It works just fine on the Note4 too. Of course, the sliders can't be operated by a finger - with an active stylus, however, they are pretty easy to use.

    And it's still great to have it on Android...

  • "It seems some other manufacturer who have supplied Lollipop updates for their devices have not fully implemented Google's Camera2 API that is necessary for Raw."

    Yup, for example Samsung haven't...
