I think I have no choice but to get one at this point.

We can be phone buddies!

I have the 1TB/12GB ceramic white S10+ in my cart for pre-order. Just have to click the button...

Why aren't you getting the folding phone, cheapskate?

Thanks just bought 25K.
Wait, is Thork gay or does he just have a thing for lipstick?

But then I'm going to have a newer and objectively better phone than you.

Faster phone. I'll still take better pictures if I keep the Pixel 3 though. Samsung can put 9 cameras on the back and it still won't be as good as the Pixel's single camera with Google's software wizardry.

But also I want the new hotness. Quite a dilemma.

The S10 is objectively better than the Pixel 3. It doesn't matter how good your camera is, the phone will always be made by Google and you can never undo that.

I'd take a Google phone over a Samsung phone tbh. And you know what I think of Google.
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol

With a SD card you could have 1500 GB of storage on a phone along with your 12 GB RAM. A deal that can't be passed up.

So is my phones camera.  I took a night sky picture and got stars in it.  As well as a few other that looked gorgeous.  What makes the google pixel so great?

What phone do you have? I've not seen a single phone camera that works wizardry like Night Sight does.

Faster phone.

tbh I'm not even confident about that, given Samsung's wondrous reputation for bloated phones that very rapidly become glorified slugs.

I actually got to play with the S10+ a couple weeks before it was announced when our Samsung rep held a secret backroom meeting with management that I got to join in on, and while it was pretty neat I wasn't super impressed. Samsung's still got it in their mind that they can make Bixby happen, the camera was good but not mind-blowing. The display was really nice, though, and I guess using it to charge other people's phones is a neat gimmick.

Huawei Mate 20 pro.  Which basically stole the camera and reverse charger from google and samsung respectively.

Is that the processor's performance, or real-life performance on the S10? Because I specifically mentioned Samsung's bloat.

I may be blind, but I didn't see anything there about the phone's low-light performance being anything near the Pixel's Night Sight.

Because that didn't have a comparison.

Its not AS good but closer than most, apparently.

In resonse to it being magic?
I mean, I think it is.  And the comparison shots are good nightshots.  The brightness needs a bit of tweaking, but you can do that with the camera app.
