    1. Not if it has enough other compelling features.
    2. No, I don't need state of the art, but it better be pretty close.

    1 Yes. I don't want to carry two devices. Just one.

    2 No, just a good camera. Lot of camera stuff these days is extremely excessive for taking a sunset picture, or a selfie.

    It seems that given performance has basically peaked out (yeah, you need 8gb for an android phone, lol), phone manufacturers are increasingly using pointless gimmicks. AR games (lets just give you 1,000 dollar smartphone to your kids), gaming phones (really, like there are many decent high end games on smartphone platforms? nope), special camera doddlebots. I've never been sold on stuff like that.

    If you are a genuine photographer, you get an actual camera with a proper optical zoom. I guess kids or pets in action shots is about the only reason I could come up with for a second camera with optical zoom. But myself, nope, not fussed.

    The 950 I am using ATM, takes great pictures. I don't really need anything better than that, maybe faster focus/picture processing, but that's about all I'd change.

    I am actually a genuine photographer (full time professional) my walkabout camera is my 950xl. Like you I don't want to walk with 2 devices but I want to have a decent enough camera in my phone that if I see something when I'm not working, I can grab a half decent image.


    Also if you are liming with your friends (hanging out) and you pull out a camera the conversation stops and people freeze up. No one pays attention to a cell phone camera.

    1. Yes, but it would also have to have blue tooth. for the most part I use blue tooth 90% for calls
    2. Yes, as good as my 950 today would work for me.

    1. If Microsoft is going to maintain this "always connected" mantra, then of course whatever this Andromeda device is will need at least LTE capability, even if it's not full-on telephony.

    2. A basic camera will work since this is a niche product, NOT a smartphone.

    And there's no universe where I would want to buy a device like this. It makes zero sense to me. My smartphone is more than capable, has an awesome camera (which is a MUST for me) and is infinitely more easy to carry in almost all situations. I have my Surface Pro if I need more productivity in a form factor that makes much more sense when a phone is simply too small/underpowered.

    1) yes
    2) high quality image is head turner! With Full W10, min full HD, image editing for immediate post and share is important

    Most important!!!!!! ACPC allows smartphone like instant wakeup and take the timeless pictures with best camera, I can imagine all bloggers want this

    I'd say no to telephony. Nice of course, but I think it will enhance the product with it
    And yes to camera. If this is for pen input, note taking etc a high performance camera is needed.

    If these two features are not present then why would I buy it. I would just buy another product that does. Honestly, I am not sure why this is even a question.

    As good camera as 950XL. I stop counting how often people want the image quality I took with soon-to-extinct W10M phone

    Nadella said it would be 'the ULTIMATE mobile device', so yes, full telephony, yes very good camera, minimum 20MP, yes full win 10 pro switchable almost instantly to S mode, yes great battery life (one of the two screens could be almost all battery underneath, maybe 5000mA).

    1 Yes, it can't be much of a portable device that crosses boundaries (phone and productive device) without telephony.

    2. Yes. Not necessarily the best for me. But, to be an acceptable mobile cross-over device it should be competitive in quality compared to other high-end devices. It is definitely one of those areas that every review will ding it for not being reasonably good. Of course, reviews will compare any Andromeda (even though it is not the same) to all other telephony-based devices. I suspect any initial device will be quite expensive, so might as well spend the extra money to make sure nothing isn't the best it can be.
