    Laura, many of the girls in the training we're not only dual phone wielders, but we're using two iPhones. So the comments were from a personal and work sentiment.

    I got gripes using one, much less carrying around two pieces of ifruit...

    If you're the type to mess around with settings and such, you can be like some of us (especially Rue), then you can get away with a XZ1C. If you're the point and shoot with no effort type, stay with a Pixel.

    Otherwise, you'll buy a XZ1C to try and get excited and then get sad when the cameras sucks in a situation you want and then you'll return it...(just my guess anyways).
    You got it. I'm a point and shoot type.

    Funnily enough, exactly what you said is what I picture happening to me, even down to the return

    For me, there are only a handful of cameras that are an improvement over the Mi Note 2/V20/950XL in my stable:

    Pixel, G6, V30.

    On this list, lesser still have great audio.
    Ooh yeah that is true. The G6 seems to be good in its own right, but the V30 seems to be awesome.

    You're in a hard place when it comes to that.

    Wow I wonder how they don't mix up their phones especially ones with white fronts.

    I dunno. Some have bigger iPhones, some have the exact same thing, some have with the black front. They make it work. I just hate having two phones from the same OEM...

    Pixel would be my recommendation. It's a zero hassle camera.

    Come October 4, it'll be interesting to see how good or bad the Pixel compares to the V30. Otherwise I am just gonna keep using my current Pixel.

    Yeah it will be. It's still amazing to me that the (original) Pixel is still one of the best phone cameras at the moment. The V30 looks like an awesome phone.

    I have never missed a camera so much in my phone life. Your experience with your Pixel has given me hope that I wouldn't be screwed (not with the camera of course but the phone itself).

    No manual mode and things like that makes it no hassle.

    But it is the best literal point and shoot Android camera, which is fine for lots of folks.

    Man, people are dumping on the Essential Phone really hard online. I don't think it's as bad as people say, but it is likely akin to the iPhone X - a bad value for money buy at its price point.

    Would I try one? Sure. Would I keep it? Of course not.

    Looking forward to a long break this weekend, but first a wee bit of unfinished task to tidy up a complex Excel. I have a 15 site office waiting for my email so they can start preparing their operational budget for next year!!!

    A busy day tomorow morning at the local Hospice centre.. They have an event planned, and I'm doing my bit manning the registration desk !!

    Then later at night.. I'm off to Kota Kinabalu.... hoping to see what's new at the mall. The missus finally wants to move on from her 1520 due to battery issues, so another WP user will leave the platform. Darn, I dont like Android, but guess I have to brush up on Nougat/Oreo (me being her default IT support!!!).
    I managed to sell off my Samsung J3 freebie for a decent price, so the extra do$h will help in bumping up the specs.

    Tanjung Aru and the glorious sunsets like these, .... here I come !!

    No structural damage save for some 50 shingles, give or take. My wonderful mango tree is no more. 😭

    It was out since Monday at dawn. In Miami heat and humidity, it may as well have been last year. Having to put up with the in-laws for 3 days was a test Jesus didn't need to put me through. We're gonna have a chat when this is over.

    That's good that there was no serious damage. Aw man, that sucks a lot about the mango tree. I'm also a little jealous that you even had a mango tree originally.

    I'll trade you all the mango and avocado trees in Miami for some mid-Atlantic weather right about now.
