    I find that post processing is necessary but I have taken some nice pictures without it.

    I'm a big believer in post processing though. There's no such thing as a perfect picture without it. That of course is my opinion. No phone camera is that good.
    With post processing even the 640 produces some amazing pictures.

    Exactly. I wasn't expecting too much from a budget phone camera such as 640 is. But i was stunned when i saw how good they were. Especially if you have time to play with the settings and focus.

    I agree that post processing is important. Still, the best camera on a phone I've used so far was the Lumia 920, based on its overall versatility. I take a lot of pictures in mixed lighting and I've yet to own anything that was able to do well on the shooting conditions I use with minimal post process afterwards.

    Some of my favorite pictures I took on the 920 I didn't post process at all and they came out stunning. My point is a if the original optics didn't produce a good base to sample from, you're putting lipstick on a pig in many ways.

    In good lighting, many cameras on phones do well. It's the mixed and low light is where you see the camera chops show up.

    I've been getting news from Loudwire and Ultimate Classoc Rock for a while now regarding GnR re-uniting. I've been sceptical at the beggining but know it seems that the rumors may be true after all.
    Really, when you look at the whole picture it actually doesn't seem impossible. Duff has already played with Axl on concerts, Slash recently said that he and Axl are no longer in bad relations, plus all the other things and we may see a orignal* GnR lineup tour somewhere in summer 2016.
    As a fan, i'd sell half of my liver to pay all the stuff necessary to see them live.

    That original lineup will be consisted of Axl, Slash and Duff only, since Izzy is nowhere to be found and i don't think Sorum and/or Adler will get their invitations, especially Adler (is he alive?).
    Well at least that my poiny of view.

    GF is enjoying her Band 2. She'll get her first workout in tomorrow morning while wearing it, so it should be a good story over breakfast...

    Meanwhile, I'm looking into factory resets for the Z3 and 930. The 930 will happen on Monday and I'll load only photography apps on it. I'll keep it on 8.1 until the official update gets pushed to it. The Z3 and Maxx I'll reset when 6.0 hits.

    And I'll counter by saying you're the ultimate beta tester by owning Nexus devices and Lumia running Preview builds...

    If things calm down enough we'll head to Vegas for May. I doubt we'll come back married though, just with a very good tan...

    I wore it yesterday at my family's Christmas gathering. Two of my cousins knew what it meant, since they have Nexus devices.

    I just spilled a god damn Coke on my 640's speaker.
    I haven't drank this soda for more than 4-5 months now, i guess this is a god's sign to tell me to keep it that way.
    I keep forgetting to throw away a Coke in can in my office ref. It has expired 3 years ago.
