You know, I miss my Lumia 1020 with that awesome 41MP sensor. Even compared to my S8+, the 1020 can still give it a run for its money when it comes to taking photos.
Problem with that old brick is that Nokia (and by extension, Microsoft) used such an outdated processor that it struggled with such a high-performance (for a cell phone) camera. Add to the fact that the WP10 OS totally made the phone unusable, they really ultimately dropped the ball on it.
It’s a shame because I’ve always liked Nokias, and the Windows Phone interface was a refreshing alternative to the Android and of course, iOS. They just let it go, and that’s a big, big shame.
I’d love to see the return of a Nokia device running Android, but I doubt it’ll happen since MS sold the Nokia Mobile Division to a company in China. Rumors of a Surface phone are just that, rumors. The Surface itself has a host of issues, so I can’t see them ever getting back into the mobile phone market. Can’t really get into LGs, and the latest pixel looks far too much like an iPhone to me.
Overall I’m really pleased with my S8+, and my business line is an S7 Edge that’s still running well, but will likely get traded in for the Note 8.
At this point, I’m wondering if I should then swap sims and make the Note my new personal phone, and relegate the S8+ to business use only, or if I should wait a while longer for either the S9 or the Note 9. I find myself having to do basic editing for photos for clients’ Instagram pages, and having used the stylus on the Note 8 really made it a breeze.
But as it stands, Samsung is the best for myself and my needs. That recent Motorola with all the detachable gadgets just seems like a gimmick to me.
